When I say that the fibroymyalgia has in a way turned out to be a great blessing some might think “she’s nuts”.  When I saw this quote, I thought, yeah, that’s me.

As I reached the 50 year age mark, the fibromyalgia not letting, coming back stronger than ever after seeming to have calmed down, I really decided it was time to focus on what I wanted to do with my life, what my calling was, and so I decided I needed to really focus.  I wanted to focus on the artistic and also on inspiring and motivating.  If I had not had the fibromyalgia crisis, I may not have come to this point, revamped my internet presence, left only youtube and this blog as my platforms and venues for sharing my gifts, talents.  I wold be still like a palm tree swaying here and there, not confident in the gift given to me by the Lord or fully in him to move forward with my calling.  Also, I am going to be looking to a faith venue that really speaks to me as an artist to use my gifts as an artist in faith.  While pain and struggle are never something we should actively seek, that does not mean it can not serve as a way to focus an unfocused life or help us to reach a level of understanding we did not have before if we can get past, let go of anger, resentment all that stuff.

Amen
