I had a plan for the last two weeks but it didn’t play out the way I’d envisioned. Honestly, I can’t remember how things got so off track. Maybe I was trying to juggle too much or maybe it was the reality that too many variables were in play. I was truly over ambitious. Of course this reminded me of when I was struggling with ME/CFS/SEID and it took so long for me to finally get focused on the plan – the single focus plan.
During the beginning of my struggle, I was riding the rollercoaster of push/crash. I had no consistent plan for managing my illness. Each day was a question mark. How was I going to do today? How would I feel? And this lack of planning only made me feel worse. Then I finally understood that all the distractions of life – all of the ‘To Dos’ – were keeping me from getting well again. I needed to ignore the distractions and focus on saving my energy and using it with discretion. I needed to stay with the plan.
So the Holidays are fast approaching. The next six weeks or so will be filled with activities and lists of ‘To Dos’. It will be a time that pushes our wellness plans to the limit.
