In the preceding weeks, I’d been super busy and doing a lot of things, like conducting webinars, that were taking me out of my comfort zone and increasing my self confidence.
But then my doctor told me no computer, no reading, no long walks, mainly rest. From then on, how I felt went downhill. Not because I was any worse, but because I couldn’t do anything except feel sorry for myself. I had no energy, no ambition, no joy in living.
That continued for over a week. Then I realized that I probably didn’t have a concussion after all. My symptoms were probably caused by a flare-up of my fibromyalgia. The rest was needed, but not to the point of doing absolutely nothing.
Once I changed my mindset and stopped feeling so hopeless, my motivation came back. I felt better physically as a result, and even though I still had some pain, I was much better. Now I’m back to appreciating life, my computer, and my books. And I read yesterday that many people are just in their prime when they turn 65, so I better get my eyes off of myself and unto my goals. In fact, my new tagline is: You’re Never Too Old, and It’s Never Too Late, So Get Out of Your Comfort Zone.
How’s your mindset today? Your world could use the motivation only you can provide!
