When I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2009, I was a totally different person then I am now. I wasn’t exactly a positive thinker. After changing everything I ate and even the water I drank I would still have some moments. In the process of changing my diet and my water I never addressed my mental health.
What’s funny is I can remember my grandmother also telling me to think positive! But I always laughed and said “whatever gram”
But oh my goodness I would realize later just how right she was.
Listen, the hardest thing I ever had to do was come clean with myself. Eventually admitting to myself that I made myself sick! I mean granted I don’t make or create all the chemicals in food that’s eating away at our bodies! But, I had a choice and I ate terribly and I held on to stress like it was my best friend! Even those things that I knew I couldn’t change.
I dwelled on all that is wrong with this crazy world. I always came up with the worse case in every situation. I was anything but positive!
No wonder I felt like crap! I was miserable thanks partly to my Whole thought process!
Finally, when I admitted to myself that I am literally my own worst enemy, I then started to address this problem.
I decided what fit me the best is “The Four Agreements” Once I embraced these four agreements I began to feel so much better!
Please check them out, they are definitely words to live by, no matter what your journey!
