The Bright Side of the Rainbow

Published October 15, 2015 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Sorry to have been away so long. I was dealing with a huge bout of anxiety and depression. I am not 100% yet, but I’m trying.

Today I fully expetcted to wake up feeling heaps of pain and fatigue since I accomplished so much yesterday.

Yesterday I was able to to get out of bed, clean the bathroom, and my  bedroom, do the wash, make dinner ( steak and oven fries) and still have enough energy to dig out my makeup and get my face Crayola fabulous.

I was exhausted after and spent most of the rest of the night in bed watching Flash, catching up on Fear the Walking Dead and binge watching Heroes,  but it was so worth it. I had an incredible sense of accomplishment.

Yesterday was the first day in well over 8 months (of the past 2 years of my fibro flare) that I was able to do more than just shower and paint my face.

It’s the first time in 8 months that I was able to make a meal for my husband. So if I was  completely annihilated after the full day that I had, it was so worth it.

Surprisingly, Today I dont feel as bad as I thought I would.

Yes I have pain, but it’s a level 7. This means I was at least able to sit up and enjoy some tv time with my hubby and play with my God baby today. I did feel wiped out but not half as bad as I thought I would be.

I could have felt sorry for myself because I couldn’t go swimming like I had planned to do today or even go to the park with my God baby, but the truth is with this walk with Fibromyalgia tomorrow is never promised, hell an hour from now is never promised, so celebrate those little moments… it’s the little accomplishments that we should thrive on and not drown ourselves with the things we weren’t able to get to.

I couldn’t do very much today but I was able to get a full beat face going today, I was able to catch up on shows hubby and I like to watch together, and I was able to spend some much needed time with the God baby. So today was pretty damn amazing.

I hope everyone has had an amazing day.

Remember life can be hard when we walk the road of invisible illnesses, just dont forget to take a breather , look around you, and enjoy the world around you.  On bad days take a moment to just let the sun kiss your face, read a book, or even pop in your ear buds and listen to something soothing – perhaps a little soundscape ocean music. This battle is tough, but you are tougher … more than you ever could know. Focus on the bright side of the rainbow, not the rain … I promise it wont be forever, there are good days a head.

The goal is to just enjoy and focus on the beauty around us.

My wish is that the day greets you with love & kindness &  that, for all my spoonie darlings out there, your energy level is comfortable and your pain levels are low.

Thanks for peeking in on this spoonie’s makeupbag and remember always reserve a spoon for a bit of lipgloss
