When you wake up and pain from an injury makes you think the day is already destined to be bad - as they used to say on Sopranos, “Boda bing, boda boom – FORGET IT!”
If you are forced to take pain medication, remember if it’s strong to eat something too. Also when you begin to feel tired or nauseated, take a breath and get a ginger ale. Since my surgeries I do take pain meds – but I take THEM – they do not take me. I like my brains and energy. I don’t LIKE the feeling. I use meds to “manage pain”, but I monitor them carefully…I cannot believe people buy pain meds to get high! If I never had to use another one again it would be a hallejuh!
Whatever you pay attention to will be multiplied in power, and will be the primary thing in your life. Be careful. These are not words that are just words. I know from personal experience if you dwell on ANYTHING it will transform into a power that leads you down a path.
When you “think” I am depressed – you will be depressed. If you keep thinking in that direction it will get worse. I am serious. I know it takes practice to change your thoughts, but come on, if you are SICK of being sick, or in pain, or miserable – do something about it! YOU ARE THE ONLY PERSON WHO CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
I believe in prayer, however, if YOU refuse to try to change, you will loose in the short, or long run. Take a breath. DIVERT YOUR OWN ATTENTION away from the problem, and tackle another challenge or do something you can do for fun. Hug someone or teach a child something.
Guess what? Your pain will “be managed” more effectively. If you sit and think about how bad it is – well, you KNOW within what will happen. If you get off your tush and take the reins – you can CREATE a great day. That’s all I’m saying. YOU have all the power to do whatever you want. Remember, no great athlete or musician got to the point of greatness without PRACTICE!
I believe I just talked myself into not paying so much attention to this pain I thought was going to overwhelm my day.
“Boda bing, boda boom” time to be in charge of my life and have a GREAT DAY. I surely hope you do the same. (By the way, I know prayer works, but you have free will to accept the healing and enhance your life – or deny the healing offered. ) It’s up to you baby! Choose carefully. Accept the blessings offered………be grateful.
Love to you from me-a fellow human that really cares! I’ve been at the bottom of the barrel too. No more!
