Back to the Basics

Keep things simple:

  • Breath
  • Laugh
  • Smile
  • Give Thanks
  • Be Happy
  • Do you
  • Have Faith
  • Trust God
  • Love your family
  • Spend time with friends
  • Enjoy life

Don’t let life’s stress overwhelm you. I know its common, but can we break that cycle already?! Stress is so damaging!! I should say TOO much stress is damaging, because a bit of stress is good its what gets us out of our comfort zones and pushes us to grow and expand, but too much is unhealthy!

I need this reminder just as much as you, and like me I bet you can start to tell when there is too much stress even when you don’t feel it. Tight muscles, tired, grouchy, and little motivation because you have this immense weight upon your shoulders. Trust me I get it, I’ve been dealing with insurance authorizations or lack of for the last two weeks. I’m one of those people who does not have patience for waiting around for an answer, I want things figured out. That has been the most frustrating thing about having this Kidney Disease- The WAITING! Waiting for test results, waiting for appointments, waiting for insurance, waiting for answers. And you know what? God is probably trying to teach me patience but boy am I a slow learner! The waiting is stressful, but lucky for me I have amazing people in my life who remind me to keep things simple.

So, I guess in a nutshell that’s my lesson for you. Just don’t overdo it, enjoy life, remember the simple.
