“Inside every older person is a younger person asking what the hell happened.” Cora Harway Armstrong
Sorry to curse, but man this quote hits home for me. With my thyroid issues and still not adjusted on my meds, I ask myself all the time how the heck I got like this. Three years ago, I completed a half marathon (walk, jog, walk) every quarter and weighed 35 pounds less. Now it’s a struggle to stay awake in the afternoon, much less have energy to work out. What happened to my strength and stamina? Thyroid affects memory, too. Everyday I see evidence of that, and it truly breaks my heart. I should be happy and thankful my condition was easily treatable and not life threatening. I shouldn’t be whining about everything I’ve lost. But sometimes, the bad thoughts rule my mind and I hate what I see in the mirror, and who I’ve become. I am sure that is why God told us to “Take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ.” I need an attitude adjustment and physical strength. One should not rely on the other. Easier said than done, but the old me would never hesitate to try!
