Sometimes it doesn't matter how hard we try, we go backwards instead of forward...
That's the way I feel as of late... I've had a lot of stiffness, a lot of pain. And a LOT of weight gain. Cymbalta was NOT a good choice for me. The doctor tried, and at first we thought it would work. SO, off of it I came... now to deal with the damage.
Okay With What Is
When you find it difficult to move forward, that’s okay. Allow it to be what it is, and allow yourself to do what you can. (The added weight makes me hurt more, the more I hurt, the less I exercise, the more weight adds up. Cycle must stop... my ability to eat mindfully has returned. I have still bowled.)
When you feel disappointed, let it be okay. Feel the disappointment, and then you can choose to let it go and to move beyond it. ( after being off the Cymbalta a month now, the weight is not moving, and the pain is difficult... and I am eating well! ARG!)
Don’t waste your energy denying what has happened or getting yourself upset about it. Instead, put your energy to positive use by finding, and working to fulfill, the best possibilities. (I joined a 10 minute challenge. It motivated me. I ordered the Spark Solution book(it still hasn't arrived). I joined Spark Coach. I'm following my Spark plan until the book arrives.)
There’s no good reason to spend a lot of time complaining about what got you into a difficult situation. That merely keeps you stuck where you are.( I went to Rheumy doctor, told him what is going on, and he had me start a new med.)
The first step in moving forward is to stop looking backwards. Stop wishing that things had been different and start working to make things a whole lot better. (no more mention of "how and why" I got to here... )
Be okay with what is, and be positive and creative in making good things from it. Remind yourself that each situation is a starting point from which you can work to create meaningful value. (My starting point is the Spark Solution, the new med worked last night, and I am Sparking THIS day!)
