I just joined a new writing group called Five Minute Friday. Every week I will get a new word delivered to my inbox and have to write about that word for five minutes and then post. I am looking forward to a new challenge.
Embrace the glorious mess that you are. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert
I am having some difficulty embracing the ways my body seems to be deserting me. First it was arthritis and creaky knees that need to be replaced eventually that some days made it hard for me to walk long distances.
Next it was the achy joints and intense fatigue which led to a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Just when I was getting use to the changes that brought with it –
BOOM! A pelvic fracture. My body is beginning to spontaneously combust.
This latest diagnosis of osteoporosis has me longing for a do-over. Could I have prevented some of these things from happening? I don’t know for sure, but I do know that I need to embrace the changes or I won’t be able to move forward. I will be stuck in a place of what ifs.
