Remember This!

As crappy as life may seem at times and as bad as you think your life or situation is read this picture, not once, not twice but as many times until it sticks in your head at how lucky we all are. Yes, I’m having a difficult day. Yes, there are things I am not happy about. Yes, I have enough worries to fill my closet but at least I have a closet. My previous post is very true. We are all allowed to have bad days and cry and scream into pillows because we are just so damn angry, but get up and realize how fortunate we really are. If reading these statistics does not change your perspective on things then please read it tomorrow.

This blog is mainly intended for people with chronic pain but it truly does apply to everyone. Any mother, any person with anxiety, any person with depression, or even a human being without one issue (if you find that one person with not one issue introduce him or her to me because I think you may have just met God.)

We sweat the small stuff so much it astonishes me. I have food in my fridge, I have a roof over my head, I have clothes on my back, some money in the bank, some loose change in my wallet, a healthy family, a healthy body even though it suffers from chronic pain, and running water. After reading these statistics I have a LOT!

    When my son’s pain is at its worst, about the only thing I’m thankful for for his sake is that at least he’s in a temperature controlled shelter and the TV is a bit of a distraction. But when I get depressed about his life in general, it does help me to realize that at least he has just about anything he could want besides a cure for the pain.

  2. Very well said. I know, hard as it seems at times, that there are others out there that make my life look like a walk in the park. There are always others who are much worse than I am. I do remind myself of that on a regular basis. Like you said, I have a roof over my head, food in the fridge (not that I can eat it), running water, electricity, a loving family, 4 wonderful kids, 1 adorable grandson that just turned 1. could be so much worse.
    Peace and HUGS
