You may say: I am sick. I am depressed. I am so fat!

Please know that you are not any of those things. Sometimes you can wrap up your identity inside statements such as these. Yes, it may be true that you have an illness or have depression. You may be carrying around excess weight and/or are so tired that you are not able to do the things you want to do, but those things are not the essence of who you really are. Who you truly are is in your character, your values, and your beliefs. It’s in the motivations that cause you to do the things you do.

You are a mother, father, sister, brother, friend. You can be creative, intelligent, empathetic, energetic. There are no limits to describing who you are.

So, who are you? What makes you happy? What is your purpose? How do you care for others? How do you express your creativity?

Perhaps you are exhausted all of the time. You are tired and worn out and you just can’t seem to shake it off. Because of your low energy levels, you feel guilty about not spending quality time with your family or are not able to keep up with household chores. You may feel badly for not cooking healthy meals or taking better care of yourself simply because you do not have the energy to do some or all of these things.

If this is you, then know this: you are not your symptoms or your disease. These things don’t define you. You are more than that. You have a personality. You have likes and dislikes. You have talents and opinions that matter. YOU matter. All these things can be hidden behind your symptoms and pain, but they don’t have to be.

One of the things you can do to get get more energy is to bring more joy back into your life. To think about the things that you truly love; the things that light you up. The things that give you energy and inspire you. It could be:

  • A favorite song or band.
  • A favorite book.
  • A certain recipe that you are well-know for. The one that people ask you to make when there is a party or a gathering.
  • A hobby or something you do for fun.

As much as you are able, bring those things back into your life.

  • Listen to that favorite song or band.
  • Read that favorite book, or listen to the audiobook.
  • Dust off that recipe and create it, or walk someone through the steps so that someone can make it for you.
  • Pick up a pencil and paper and start to draw or write again.

It doesn’t have to be a big thing. Just something that brings a smile to your face. And that’s all you are looking for – a smile. A laugh. An uplifted heart. Something that makes you remember who you truly are and distracts you from your physical difficulties.

“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”

Whatever that is, focus on your favorite things to get back in touch with the real you. The authentic you. As much as possible, keep it positive.

Do those things that you used to do in happier times that bring you joy. Sing a little. Laugh a little. Share them with a family member or friend. You’ll be glad that you did!
