I’ve been with Fibio for about 4 years now and I’ve never acknowledged Fibromyalgia Awareness Month, Honestly I was in denial for a while that I was now in a relationship with Fibio, so it took some time for me to even research what month it was. However, over the years Fibio has brought nothing but awareness to my life.
Lately I’ve been trying to figure out how I’m supposed to stay encouraged with everything that is happening. I’ve been having more bad days than good days with Fabio while trying to get adjusted to being back to work and this crazy weather. The cold and rain is not friends with Fabio at all. On top of Fabio, life is still happening and it’s been kinda heavy… I’m trying to be strong and let God continue to make something out of nothing.
Mind you I still have photos I need to get done and other stuff to prepare for the launch but I can’t because I’m stuck in bed. People think that because you have a desk job you should be fine… Not my case especially working 4 days straight, it’s physically too much for me, Sad right? I had a decision to make, do I stay at this job that I’m never going to make it on Thursday because I’m tapped out by Wednesday or do I quit?
When you feel like you don’t have a friend, God is a friend to the friendless, God is hope for the hopeless, God is faithful to the faithless. , when you think there is no way God makes a way. Just TRUST THE PROCESS!!!! You will hit roadblocks but let God be your back up, your AAA, your roadside assistance, your GPS and your roadmap to help you stay on the right path to your GREATER!
That vision was now about to become a reality, but I was just going to New York I was going during fashion week. That in itself was such a blessing and so exciting. Although I was overjoyed with excitement I was filled with uncertainty as well because we would be driving. Fabio and I don’t do road trips at all! So to prepare I literally rested my body up until it was time to leave.
