Just moments ago I felt off with my story with me fighting my anemia which is a major factor in my life. I remember it like it was yesterday Shiners. Again I lay in this bed sleeping away....I wake up wanting to go right back to sleep. I have never just slept the day away-not even when I am sick!
Oh well-once again the fighter in me would not stand for it and I'm NOT! Let me tell you what I did....I got up, got my butt out of bed and took a shower, washed my hair, did my homework and more. I kept moving. I turned on some music and kept moving. I went back and read my blog, I watched my kids play and laugh, I Wii bowled, I just danced to Just Dance 2, I looked at my twitter and saw how so many look forward to communicating and getting their daily dose of Positivity from me. I looked over my transcripts from school....A+ here B+ there more A's and more A's, Dean' list, President's list. I am in no way gloating-this is what I had to do to get my mind right because I wanted to give it all up because of this blasted anemia. Then Shiners....I saw it!
I saw it alright....that Bleeping D! Dang it!! I said all because I am anemic. That D saved me but crushed me. I never had one of them before. So I step back up to the plate this term Shiners and I will have 2 shiny fat A's! Let me tell you why-Because I'm getting back to "ME"
That's right...me and this anemia are going toe to toe! I'm no quitter-I don't give up at anything! I will find me in the process. I will relax, I will eat ice cream, I will laugh, blog my heart out, smile abundantly, and whip anemia's butt!
See I am Ms. Positivity!! I am not mean in any way, I am a loving mother of 2, loving pre-wife of one, God fearing and as long as I have faith the size of a mustard seed I will prevail. I will take my iron pills, take my B-12(because my body does not produce enough) and Shine as bright as I can for me, and every one I love and care for! You will see a different me-I will be calm, spunky, witty, funny, and full of life.
This may seem simple, but for one who is dealing with anemia that has knocked me off of my square-it is major!
See Shiners I need you guys....One of my great friends sent me this on Facebook the other day: Kelly Reid
"Have I told you lately how special you are? You are an amazing woman! You are truly an inspiration. Here I am thinking how in the world am I going to balance work and school and then I think of you. Not only an FT employee, a student, a mother (dang good one at that!) a girlfriend, a friend to many and a blogger to name just a handful (among many others hats you wear) ;) Wow!!! Keep it up, you motivate me to be more and do better. Love you!"
See I never knew the affect that I had on people until I started Positively Shining. Without you their is no ME! That is why I have to get back to ME so I can totally Positively Shine for YOU!
So here is to getting back to "ME" The fight
I WE will win TOGETHER!
So Let's show them how we get back to us!
