Finally back here, very busy month both socially and at work. I wrote about being a goodist today. About comparing myself to others and thinking they were better until I looked deeper into the lives of each one. I realized as I wrote about the individuals who I thought had better jobs, marriages or money each one had other things they were dealing with. No one has it better. It may look like it on the surface. Since I haven't checked in lately will do update, no back problems at work at all even with lifting, can tell my muscles are getting stronger. As the symptoms change....sounds like a soap opera title....for the past week fighting off sinus infection and tiredness. Had time to pick up Steven Ozanich's book on pain for a few chapters and read about how your very first thought always tends to be about your body and what is happening with it. This led me to realize I am giving my tiredness and sinus symptoms too much attention. I wasn't going to swim today, but after reading that I went out and checked on pool and with just my decision to swim later felt better. I feel like there is enormous power in our minds if directed correctly.
