Last year’s birthday and migraine motivation

IMG_7571

This week is my birthday! As I looked back at where I was last year, I was struggling but happy. I’m about the same but can say I’ve seen growth. I strengthened my time management this year and really focused on doing things that make me happier and healthier.

I started a new job that inspires me to feel better, gives me a new sense of purpose and the people there make me smile and laugh.  Being a teacher and changing lives is very motivating and the families I work with are incredible!

My Migraine Life has done a lot of great things and I’m very proud of my blog being so unique and well received. I had never read a blog when I began this journey and I’m proud that I created this community and am helping so many in my own way.

I still have a lot of “bad days” and feel better knowing that on my less painful days I’m helping and teaching so many.  I’m using my good days for the good and that is the best I can do.  On those bad days…..I’ll “just keep swimming!”

Birthday wishes and healthy dreams. Just keep swimming with Migraine

 

 

Yeah, it’s my birthday!!!!  Thank you for all the well wishes on my day!

How was “my day?”

I was busy and felt pretty well.  I decided to cancel my massage and take my children to see Finding Dory.  This is the last week before school starts and they wanted to go all Summer, so my birthday was the day….

We started by painting our nails with Dory nail polish and lip gloss.  Then we baked cookies and painted with edible paint and decals.  Yum!  Nothing says a birthday like cooking and crafting with my babies!

Throughout the day, I ate way too much junk food, forgot to take a picture of my cake and was up most of the night in pain with my mind racing with the upcoming week. (next week school starts)

With the Summer ending and school beginning, I took notes from Dory (as I always do with children’s movies) and embraced, “Just keep swimming!”  This has been a rough Summer for me Migraine wise, as always, and I hope this Fall brings nothing but joy and new adventures in good health.

For the entire year, in  good times and bad, sickness and health, I want to remind you all to “Just keep swimming.”  Sometimes things may seem really hard, dark, and lonely.  Other times may feel too good to be true.

Through it all, Dory reminds us to:

Keep going

When faced with a new challenge, look around and find a way

Friends can become family with devotion and love

Family can help you find the way home

So as my family faces many new adventures this school year, we are all going to keep swimming and find our way!
