Forever Young even with Fibromyalgia
One day I pondered if I would ever grow old as Fibromyalgia was having its way with me. Finally I found a solution. I would like to share it with you. I'm not a great poet, but I think you will get the idea.
I see the best there is to see in all that crosses paths with me.
I'm charming, disarming, with wit I beguile and I think the thoughts that make me smile.
I love to run across the grassy knoll to swing my arms and quickly stroll;
To giggle, to jog and to dance; to grab adventure at every chance.
I see young folks in all they do; I feel their energy, their excitement too.
I know the trials they must face but I only dwell on saving grace.
I cannot take the time to fret over things I cannot get;
To ponder on what I do not own would only make me sigh and groan.
Oh my goodness -- life is so filling. All one has to do is be willing.
Yes I am young and of every kind, because with every moment - I use my mind.
The mind is a miracle. Keep it healthy, treat it gently when it is slow; exercise it as you do your body (or maybe a little more, as exercising my body is not on my top ten list).
Appreciate that you are capable of using your mind and always... always use it to the fullest you possibly can. I like to use word search and word games on the computer. My love prefers reading (yes, Susan, reading) as well as crossword puzzles. I get too confused to do them, but he is quite swift at them.
Never give up on yourself or your mind, you are beautiful and so is your mind. Fibromyalgia - that's just a disease that happens to live with you. Your mind can rule! So go for it, my friends.
Smiles are sunshine within waiting to shine. Smile at a stranger (they will wonder what you are up to) but they might just catch some of your sunshine.
