Chronic illnesses are an unpredictable journey, and my only steady companion throughout my journey is fear. As I am enjoying the plateau of good health while it last, I am always on a lookout for the next flareup that I know will come in just a matter of time. As I am getting older, my chronic illness is affecting and taking away more and more important aspects in my life. I find myself drowning in my own fear and constantly battling with my mind and body from day to night. To be honest, I am tired, dreaded, and I have enough.
This year I will try to push everything aside and focus mainly on my health. I want to truly regain power within myself and learn to take things on a different perspective--some things are out of my control, but I have a choice and the ability to choose how I respond to them, and I need to start practicing this ability instead of victimizing myself.
Starting today, I want to challenge myself to really live and "embrace the journey" called life. .
Thanks to @ntsbracelets for this simple reminder! I love partnering with companies that gives back to the society--for every #NTS bracelet purchased, $1 will be given to the Pencils of Promise, an organization dedicated to building schools for youth in the developing world.
