Count the Good Days

Written By: JoJoisms - Feb• 23•15

cob web glassesI learn a lot about history and science from the movies. I remember watching, of all things, Poltergeist, as a kid and learning that if you count the seconds between the thunder and lightning, you can find whether the storm is coming or going.  Living in NW Indiana as I do, this has come in handy–especially after a lightning strike that took out over 20 electronic items in our home.  Now we count the time in between and feel better at least knowing that the storm is on its way out of our area and the house is not on fire.

The same can be done with our chronic health issues.  It feels awful to always be tired or have to ration energy or have to deal with pain or anything else on a daily basis.  BUT…it can feel better if you know you are getting better, even if it’s only slightly.  It can also feel better to know when you’re getting worse as you can help your dr determine what caused it.  So I say…count the good days.

Just having a diagnosis from a dr can help us feel a bit better.  At least we KNOW what it is and that it’s not all in our heads.  Count the good days.  Count the good hours or the good minutes if you have to.  Keep a log.  Write down what you ate, did, felt, had, encountered.  That can help determine why the good days or hours or minutes are more or less than they were.  Keep track of pain.  Keep track of fatigue.  Keep track of the good days.

Count the good days.  Put on your rose colored glasses and strain to see through the cobwebs or the cracked lenses…and then count the blessings they provide.  “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” -Proverbs 17:22

    It would be really good for you to get some Pinterest “share” buttons in your blog posts (wish I knew how to do that) – But I think a comment software/program called Discus has it built in.
