Today

Well, I went 10 whole days with no headaches & no migraines...it felt so amazing.
Then the last two days I've had to slow it right down again for a bad migraine has set in again.
I am always so disappointed when a new bout of pain starts
because I know just how far behind it'll make me & how much it'll slow me down
& I never know how long it'll last, sometimes it's 2 weeks straight, sigh!

But there is a key to living well and happily as a chronic migraine sufferer.
What in the world could it be are you wondering???

Well it's  Gratitude for everything good,
a heart ready to bask in the days small lovelies
& a keen eye to spot simple beauty.

So that's what I am doing today, appreciating and enjoying the day
despite the pounding and persistent pain hounding the right side & entire back of my head.

So, I am enjoying some quiet time curled up with a favorite soft blanket and my favorite magazines.
  
 
I am listening to my energetic Jaks rip apart his box like a little mad man, ha ha.
 
 
I am sitting down at my beloved new desk in my upstairs studio
(that I share with Jaks and Jin)
to colour whenever the pounding feels not quite so sharp...
sometimes I can work for 5 minutes, sometimes for 10, sometimes for 30 minutes at a time.
 
 
I am stretching out on the floor and keeping a napping Jinny company.
She doesn't mind, as long as I don't pet her too much, ha ha.
 
 
I am enjoying warm cups of sweet almond milk...topped with cinnamon, yum.
 

And lots of other loveliness is still to come for as I write this post, it's only noon.

So see...
despite a raging storm in my head that would have most people buckle and scream!
I am up and about & making the most of this day.
(with just a short lay-down with heat every couple of hours to soothe my body)

I am realizing more and more that it's all about attitude...it really is.

I am enjoying my day despite the negative...
and it's indeed feeling
very sweet & beautifully cozy.
Ahhh.

Drop in with a comment & tell me how YOUR day is going?
Are you facing a negative?? & how are you choosing to deal with it???

sorry to hear you are not feeling well. migraines are no fun at all.
But the soft sweet bunny and almond milk.... now those are two lovely thoughts.
I hope you are feeling better soon.
