Today’s post is for those people out there dealing with Fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed 26 years ago with Addison’s Disease. So, I understand what it’s like to live with a challenging, chronic condition that other people don’t understand.
There are many famous people who have this condition. Among them is the popular and busy American actor, Morgan Freeman. He’s talked about his Fibromyalgia publicly in many interviews. The quote in the image above let’s you know that he refuses to let it determine his life.
If you’re newly diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, are looking for resources, or are seeking ways to advocate for the condition, I recommend that you contact my friend, Meshea Crysup. You can find her on Fibro Life page on Facebook or follow her on Twitter.
In the meantime, here are a few affirmations you can use help you win your day against this challenging condition.
- I have fibromyalgia, but it will NEVER have me!
- Who I am transcends my Fibromyalgia. It is limited, but I am limitless!
- What’s inside of me is bigger and stronger than my fibro!
- Today and every day, I choose a full, happy life over the fibromyalgia.
- Breathing in, I feel my fibro. Breathing out, I release it.
- Fibro is what I have not who I am!
- I refuse to give in. I refuse to give up. I refuse to give out.
- I accept that others won’t understand and I release my anger about it.
- Because of what I am going through, it makes me more compassionate for what others are going through.
- My fibromyalgia is strong, but I am far stronger!
Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

Roadblocks are simply shortcuts to something better than I had planned.
When you hit a “roadblock” in your life…stop…wait. Often roadblocks are viewed as something negative. We don’t like our plans to be foiled and it can be pretty frustrating. However, if we can avoid the initial negative reaction, we may find that the “roadblock” is in fact a gateway to something better than we had planned.
Sometimes the things we initially view as “roadblocks” – because they interfere with our plans – are actually possibilities we had not even considered.
Today when something seems to be interfering with your plans try looking for the opportunity in it. You may find that “roadblocks” can transform into gold mines.
“This year I am absolutely committed to being the person I came here to be!”
“I absorb knowledge like a sponge and retain it for use at the appropriate time.”

Our society is built on getting things done. Productive action is an important ingredient to our success. The “To-Do List” is a staple of our productivity society.
We make these lists to remind us of the tasks we need to complete in a day, a week, or some other time period. Some people use them as a guide, while others meticulously check off each task as it is completed.
The super-organized among us are probably already creating their 2009 To-Do Lists. Nearly all of us are thinking about the things we “have to get done” next year.
Numerous motivational speakers and spiritual teachers have commented that we are human “beings” not human “doings”. This is commentary on our propensity to focus on the doing at the expense of the being.
Their goal is to remind us that we are here as surely TO BE as we are to do. They are suggesting an imbalance in our lives between doing and being. With our fast-paced, modern, rush, rush, rush society; who can argue?
The extreme answer to reducing your “doingness” is to sell your possessions and go live as a monk on a mountain top somewhere. You could then spend your entire life just being. That’s not a realistic or even appealing option for most of us.
So, how do you find a beingness/doingness balance in your life? How do you keep yourself reminded to “just be” or to become who you want TO BE?
Create a To-Be List for 2009. I know, I know, I see the paradox in suggesting a doing to improve your ability to be. Life is full of paradoxes.
Your To-Be List has two aspects:
- Planned Beingness – these times can go right on your calendar along with your to-dos. They are planned times in your day or week where you plan to just be. Just being can mean meditating, sitting quietly, or brainstorming…you get to define what it means for you. There are just two rules. This time must be time away from your To-Do List activites. You’re not doing any of them or thinking about them. PLANNED BEINGNESS IS YOU TIME. Place this in your daily To-Do List or on your calendar. Plan your beingness.
- Visionary Beingness – answers the question, “Who do I want TO BE a year from now?” A To-Do List enumerates the tasks you want to get done in 2009. Your To-Be List can enumerate the characteristics you want TO BE you at the end of 2009. These can be self-development goals, career goals, or personal characteristics. This is your list of things TO BE by the end of 2009. It’s an organized way to spell out who you want TO BE the same way you list what you need to do. Examples include the following.
- By the end of 2009, I will BE less judgmental than I am now.
- By the end of 2009, I will BE more courageous in following my dreams than I am now.
- By the end of 2009, I will BE in a managerial role.
- By the end of 2009, I will BE more at peace than I am today.
- By the end of 2009, I will BE a more accomplished writer.
- By the end of 2009, I will BE a more effective business owner.
Tips for Success:
- Make your To-Be List as important as your To-Do List.
- Use existing tools like your current electronic calendar or hard copy planner to create your To-Be List right along side your To-Do List.
- Make it part of your routine.
- Spend time each day reviewing your To-Be List just as you do your To-Do List.
By making time TO BE, you will experience greater peace and contentment. By envisioning who you want TO BE, you are focusing your mind and your efforts to create the circumstances, opportunities, and intention to make it so. Create an expectation that you will complete your T0-Be List the same way you complete your To-Do List and you will!
