I’d like to apologize for my absence from not only my blog, but yours. We have some family members who evacuated ahead of Hurricane Florence staying with us. They’ve been here since Tuesday, and things around here are quite chaotic and stressful. I hope they’ll be able to return home and things will return to normal soon.
I just wanted pop in quickly to explain my absence and let you know I’ve been thinking of you. I miss being in touch with all of you! I hope to be back to my regular posting schedule by next week.
This experience has really reminded me of something this week. As you know, my blog is about thriving, not just surviving, with fibromyalgia. The truth is, though, that sometimes all you can do at certain times is go into survival mode and get through whatever you’re trying to get through.
That’s definitely been the case with me this week. I’m just working to survive day by day, and I’m okay with that.
There are times that we may feel we’re wading through floodwaters or trying to avoid blowing away in the wind. If you’re in one of those “storms” where you feel you’re just surviving each day, that’s okay. Just put on your survival suit and hold on. The storm will pass and you’ll have the chance to move forward again once it’s over.
Wishing you all a wonderful week, and praying for any of you who may have been affected by the hurricane.
