The Best Me I Can Be

     I’ve been a bit hard on myself lately.  I’m not able to do the things I used to do.  The pain and fatigue are wearing on me.  One busy day results in three days of sleep.  I’m not very pleased with myself.  I hate not being able to work.  I hate missing important events in my friends’/family’s lives.  I hate turning down invitations.  I hate not being able to offer to help others.  I hate not being on top of my household chores.  I don’t hate myself.  But I do hate this situation.
     Someone very wise suggested I stop focusing on what I can’t do and focus on what I can do.  He said, if you can’t be who you want to be, focus on being the best you you can be.  So that’s what I will focus on.  If I can’t go to work, how can I contribute to work?  If I can’t make an important event, how can I show my support?   If I can’t accept an invitation, can I extend an invitation?  If I can’t help others, can I lend an ear or a shoulder?  If I can’t do all of the chores, what chores can I do?
     I will be the best me I can be.
