Columnist Writes about Life in the Fast Lane
Happy Monday! We’re halfway through July already. It’s crazy!
Life seems to be going faster and faster for me these days, which is why Alyssa’s latest column hit me as hard as it did. In this piece, she writes about her recent level of activity and the fatigue that accompanies it.
Like Alyssa, I love crossing things off my to-do list. I often put things on my to-do list just so I can cross them off! But fatigue knocks us down when we least expect it, especially when living with SMA.
I love what Alyssa said at the very end of her column: “[…] in an effort to slow down and reexamine my responsibilities, I realize that I must make a conscious effort to redirect my thoughts and recognize that the only responsibility I have is to take care of my body.”
In my opinion, that’s a great way of balancing health and responsibility. We can enjoy the adrenaline rush of the fast lane — so long as we realize that our bodies deserve just as much attention as our to-do lists, if not more.
How do you balance your fluctuating health and your to-do lists? Let us know in the comments below!
