2013. Did you decide that this was going to be the big one? Did you decide that this was the year it was going to happen? Recovery from illness, more money in the bank, to go for a run more often, to remember to be kinder…whatever it was, it’s not too late (and I’m not just saying this to make you feel better.)

New Year Resolutions, as traditional as they may be, are strange little creatures. Change and willingness to change can occur any month, any day, any minute, any hour…this second.

Living with CFS feels like you’re never going to have this chance again, the chance to make a change. People who haven’t lived with CFS face the same challenges- change is scary for everyone. But who is telling you you’ve missed your chance to change? Is it your family? They know that change is possible for you. Is it society? Society thrives on change- in fact sometimes, it moves too quickly. So, who is it?

Is it you?

Do you want to change?

Answer this honestly. If you don’t want to change deep down, I hear you. I didn’t fancy it either, as it meant being who I really was and deciding what I really wanted to do. It would opening myself up to scary and amazing possibilities every day. It involves action, being vulnerable and it’s scary as hell. Everything had been against me up until that point, so why bother changing now?

The truth is, it was make or break time for me. I’d had it of the illness taking over. I knew getting better was possible, despite what I’d been led to believe. Making it a reality was a struggle, but I did it.

Be grateful.

Know your limits.

Love life, warts and all.

Look after and love your body.
