Today is one of those days I will be going, and going, and going, but unlike the Energizer Bunny, I don’t have Energizer batteries to keep me moving. I do have rechargeable batteries but sad to say even those kinds of batteries drain way too fast. Just last night I tried recharging them, but when I woke up this morning they were only part way full.
I’m not exactly sure how to change out the batteries for my body. I have never actually found the battery door in order to replace them. They must be the irreplaceable kind. Maybe you know where it’s located and could give me a few pointers.
When I have a phone that starts losing its charge and replacing the batteries doesn’t fix the problem, I simply upgrade the phone. It’s easy to do too. Just go to the store or visit their website, and boom…upgrade. Has anyone found out if there’s an upgrade model for their body? I think mine must be a lifetime, one-of-a-kind model. Boy, do I need an upgrade.
Since there’s no way of upgrading or replacing my body, I guess I need to be kinder and more gentler with it in order to keep it going as long as it can. I try my best to rest, take lots of breaks and not to push it too far. Of course that last part is not as easy as it sounds.
Life is busy and there are lots of things that need to get done in a day. It all comes down to making choices about what you can and can’t do in any given moment. Saying no to someone really is an option. I’ve learned that the hard way and keep learning that more and more as time goes by.
If your body model is losing it’s charge like mine, be sure to take care of it. Don’t overdo things only to regret it later. There’s only one you. You’re a one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable “you.” Take care of yourself. Be kind and gentle to your body, and rest when necessary.
Do what you can today and leave the rest for another day. You matter more than a to-do list or a schedule. You are amazing just as you are…MS and all. Today, do something for YOU!
