Survival is for the strong at heart!

I woke up this morning feeling achy. After staying up late working on my multiple projects it seemed useless to go to bed at 3 a.m. but taking a nap was necessary. The rain outside greeted me a few hours later when my alarm went off at 6:30 a.m. I knew it was the rain saying,” Good morning survivor!” because the stiffness in my joints and overall body pain was a sign that along with normal lupus fatigue, I also had to accept that the weather would work against me.
It would have been easy to lay in bed all day, but I willed myself up. Reminding myself that survival is for the strong at heart helped me to not waste a day of brand new mercies just having a pity party in my pj’s. As the day progressed I felt better. I enjoyed church. I had an interview with an online magazine owner and I proved that even when my body doesn’t want to get up and at it, I have the tenacious spirit necessary to fight through any how! If you plan to survive lupus…toughen up!IMG_20140525_074620
