My insomnia inspired gratitude list
July 8, 2014 by julie
For the better part of my life I’ve jumped into a nice hot shower, gone to bed and fallen fast asleep. Who doesn’t, right? For approximately 5 years now, the level of the Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue that I live with has made these 2 things incredibly difficult, painful and troublesome. I’ve come up with several survival plans to manage these necessities of life. However – during my father’s illness and passing and the domino effect that still continues to follow – it’s been quite, shall we say, challenging.
For tonight, I will execute one of my little feeling better tricks: The Gratitude List. More often than not, writing it works a heck of a lot better than thinking it… And I am so grateful, that, somehow, I am still sober…
I am grateful for the Tucson clouds.
I am grateful for my favorite flowers.
I am grateful for, Peaches, my father’s cat.
I am grateful I live on my father’s quiet cul-de-sac.
I am grateful for the times I remain hopeful that some day I will live pain free.
