I do this every day and it has helped me so much. On very bad days I look back on my list and have to smile. Some of us write down an extra line of why we picked that word that day. It brings back a happy reminder. Even if all you managed was "I Am trying" How positive is that one word. We have to keep trying. We can not let Thyroid Disease get us down with out a good fight. The thing about this project is anybody can do it. From small children to teens to somebody facing other Disease's or challenges. It does not hurt to try. But it does hurt not to in my opinion.
I have a few really good ones stored away for when I really can not think of anything. Yes my mind does go "Blank" . Many times. Sometimes I forget what I am doing. I have found if I keep busy and keep my mind working I don't get so many "Blank" spots in my day. I also do not seem to need to sleep 16 hrs a day. I try to keep my whole day busy. I Do my Online work for 1/2 hr to 1 hour at a time 1-6 times a day . In between I do other things. Day1 is for drawing and painting . Day 2 is for sewing projects. Day 3 day is for my writing. Day 4 is for baking cookies or cakes. Day 5 is for organizing. Day 6 for house stuff. And day 7 for a road trip. As you see I try to keep busy. I do not always stick to this routine. But, it does help me keep myself in order as I tend to forget things still. Oh you been there I see. So you know what I am talking about. I try to read everyday and watch the news. The whole point is I can not go to work everyday any more. But I need that structure. When you work from home it is easy to get lazy about things. Although I will work in my Pj's some days. It is called Pajama day. If I do not get dressed and just wear something old I would not go out in public with ....well that is my "Come as You are to work" Day. If my grandkids are here , I am playing hookie. And if I don't get out of bed, ofcourse that is a sick leave. Yes I Do have an excuse for everything I do.
I have been asked about my politics, well I am a "Purple'. I have been asked about my belief , I believe a higher being made this beautiful world for me to enjoy. Do I believe in prayers. Hay It can't hurt. And I do not want people to think I am talking to myself when I ask somebody upstairs to look out for somebody . I don't want to have people think I am crazier then they already do by talking to myself. I do have friends I have never seen or met or know where they come from. If I was a child you might say I have Imaginary friends. Do I play dolls and dress up and hide and seek...you bet I do. Keeps me young. I color and finger paint too. I have been asked if I am prejudice. I better not be with the United Nations for grandkids. I have been told my cartoons are not what a parent wants their children to see and have been deleted from a group for kids with Thyroid Disease. I have also been told by 2 Thyroid groups not to post my "Coffee Break" or promote my things on their page. But, I can post my experience. The only reason I am posting this information here is because....this is my Blog ...and I can say what I want. But to also let everybody know. I have no hard feelings about it. We all have what we believe in and have a right to our belief. I don't care who or what you are...I don't care what color or what you believe in. If you like what I write about and my cartoons you will come and see. If not well you just won't. I am here for myself and for you who need a place to come to for a "THYROID COFFEE BREAK" , a break from your Thyroid Disease. It does not matter if you have it or somebody you care about does. If you need a break from it all come here and I will try to give you a smile or at least let you know you are not alone and we all have problems and things we don't all agree with. Even in our Thyroid Disease we don't all agree. Some of us can not even agree this disease is curable or not. So to sum it all up.... I AM POSITIVE.
