This is pasted from a facebook lyme page I found yesterday. It's timely and helpful and well-said.
The page is:
The post is (with spacing added):
Attention: This page was set up to spread awareness of "lyme disease" (I refuse to capitalize this term anymore) and that I will continue to do.
However, in order to SPREAD awareness, we must first discover it for ourselves. And as I explore my own awareness I find it necessary to keep in check what power I give this or any illness or DISease. I urge those struggling to stop struggling.
Change the story in your mind.What if we see the blessing in things falling into place rather than falling apart. It hurts much worse when we try to hold on to something for dear life. Just imagine how exhausting it is. Your poor mind and body are tired and want to let go. What we WERE doing is no longer working or else we would not be in the spot we are in. Change is inevitable. Find surprise and excitement in the unknown.
Say to yourself, "I wonder what miracle awaits for me tomorrow" instead of "oh God, another day of this hell!". After all, we are indeed a product of the thoughts we create.
What if things do not have to be as difficult as we are making them. What if we STOP IDENTIFYING ourselves with these circumstances. What if the mind no longer contemplates illness.
Well then wouldn't the body eventually have to follow? We need to change our thinking before we change our bodies and our cells. If we can change our thoughts we can change our world NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND THERE IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE!
When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change. I can easily say "i lost everything" But instead I am saying, "I am so lucky to be able to start all over"...So now I await the miracles that come tomorrow. I hope you can and do too.
