I do not want to bore you all with the usual “New Year, New Me” rhetoric. I will say, however, that I have taken the past couple of months off as far as blogging, being productive online, etc., and have used the time to do more than train our new furry child, Roman. I have done some serious soul-searching.
The last few months of 2017 found my doctor and I at odds over “being” vs. “doing”. Neither of us was entirely wrong or right—the key, as always, was finding BALANCE! No matter what I do in life, BALANCE and I do not always line up! BALANCE just does not come easily for me. Regardless, without it, I am miserable. I truly am thankful for “being” but I truly am not happy “just being”! I AM A DOER! However, if I over-do—well I have Fibromyalgia, so you know…
It does not help that I have so many interests, passions, ideas, etc. I have never been good at picking just one or two! Life is too short to not get as many of my ideas going as soon as possible! The only problem is, I end up not accomplishing much with any of them. I have decided that the key is not giving up on any of them, but rather, organizing them and taking them on with a—you guessed it—BALANCED approach! To further complicate things, the fatigue and fog of FMS are a very real part of my life. I truly LIVE a fibroLIFE©. So, 2018 has to be a LIVING a fibroLIFE with a BALANCED approach—which of course is fibroLIFE Basics!
So what exactly does that look like?
I do not know which I feel most: silly to have to re-learn the lesson or proud that I KNOW HOW TO LIVE fibroLIFE Basics©. There I go again—thinking in terms of extremes! The key is BALANCE!

Thank you for your post! It hit home. I too find that balance is important—physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. When I truly listen to my intuition and moderate rather than give into excess, be it stress and worry, physical activity, eating habits that are not the healthiest for me etc. then I feel the best. I believe following our passion and making time for what brings us great joy is important even when approached in moderation. Happiest New Year!
