Momentum Monday: Fear

This week has been trying for me to say the least. I have been dealing with health issues that have kept me from doing something that I enjoy, something that I've been looking forward to and has me in a funk.  I've had to change how I sleep, what I eat and I can't run.  I'm pretty depressed to say the least. 

However this brief change in my life, while we figure out what is wrong, helps me to deal with today's Momentum Monday.

I have been feeling really down about my current situation and letting it get the better of me.  The moment you let something get you down, you give it power over you and it can control how you make decisions.  I have been letting fear take my confidence and my hope that things will get better soon with my health.  I need to let myself heal and get better, without all the worry and stress of fear.  

I've had the most incredible support while I've been battling with this issue from my husband.  He has been by my side every free moment he has (he works on the weekend).  He has even been sleeping on the couch in the living room while I sleep upright in the recliner.  I tell him to go sleep comfortably in the bedroom, but he refuses and says that he doesn't want to be that far away and he wants to take care of me.  He is such a good man and I love him so much.

Regardless of what is going on right now, it will make me stronger and wiser for the future.  This is only a bump in the road and I need to keep perspective and keep my eyes fixed on the horizon.  It will get better, I will get better and I'll be out there soon feeling the road pass under my feet.  And I will be smiling the whole time.


  1. So sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I hope things start to look up soon. Thinking of you.

    1. Thank you for the encouragement! Things are getting better, slowly but surely. :)
