The way I think about
my pain can either intensify it or help reduce it. If I keep telling myself I feel horrible, I'm going to feel worse. I've been telling myself, you can get through this and then put my focus on something else. Even cleaning a closet will get my mind off pain. It takes practice to stop feeding into pain. At one time I just expected to feel bad all the time...I've changed my expectations...each day is a good day. Sure I hurt but it doesn't have to be front and center of my life. I learned my thoughts do play an important part of the life I create for myself. A few positive thoughts can change my day from cloudy to sunny.
Wishing you all some rays to brighten your day
