BEING HEALTHY IS A DECISION
After 6 years of pain in the muscles and joints because of the fibromyalgia, it took me 6 months to get better from the moment I took the decision to change my thought patter.

Our day to day lives present a continuous array of challenges that affect our lives. Each obstacle we stumble upon can either destroy us or make us stronger. The path one takes is a personal choice. We can deal with our difficulties and transform them into opportunities to improve and become stronger, or we can succumb against adversity. Its normal to feel like a victim of your own body. But the universal truth is that we are here on this earth to learn how to overcome pain, suffering, and ultimately find satisfaction and happiness.
When we firmly make a decision, such as getting cured, we activate a process of attraction that requires mental persistence. In this process, there should be no room for doubts. This doubts can keep us from accomplishing our goal. Once a decision to start the change is made, we commence a plan of action to achieve our goal.
In this case the goal would be to get cured from an illness. In order to do this we need to start by investigating everything about the medical condition. After this we have to research all the natural treatments available and pinpoint the specific treatments that may be better suited for us.
Natural remedies will always be a better option. They may take longer to work but, they have very positive long term results without horrible side effects. We all know that chemical medicines only masque the symptoms but do not eradicate the problem that causes the symptoms.
Fibromyalgia is treated with antidepressants and pain relieve medicines. However in my case I made the decision to not take any of this chemical medicines. I knew this medicines would not cure my illness.
So to cure an illness, 3 aspects should be considered in our plan of action. The first is to have a determined mentality, our mental state has an incredible power over our organism. The second aspect is physical activity. And the third is nutrition. Each diet should be specific for every case.
Today I want to place emphasis on the mental portion of our action plan. Because in the mind is where it all begins. We need to visualize what we want. To be constant and never lose that mental image of our goal we need to reprogram our brain by only allowing positive thoughts of success into hour head.
We need to be able to visualize our goal with such clarity that we can believe that it is already true. There are different techniques to program our minds such as: NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), meditation, affirmation by means of repetition of positive statements, regression, self-help books, audiovisual aids, and even watching a funny movie or listening to an upbeat song.
Its imperative to find activities that can distract our minds to keep us from thinking about the pain. Activities such as: Dance classes, sports, comedic books, and even sharing some laughters with friends and family. Find your favorite activity and practice it constantly. You will be able to forget about the pain and perhaps became skilled at something.
