Are you keeping back enough of yourself to last through the day?

The “Spoon Theory”  is written from the perspective of a person with lupus, Christine Miserandino, but there is a message and inspiration for all of us.

Miserandino uses spoons to represent daily living and giving away the limited number of  “spoons” we all have:  a spoon for getting dressed, working, cooking, recreation, and “living.”  

She writes: “I have learned to live life with an extra spoon in my pocket, in reserve. You need to always be prepared. Its hard, the hardest thing I ever had to learn is to slow down, and not do everything.”

Listen to the author reading the Spoon Theory at this YouTube link  to a packed audience at a Lupus Foundation of America Symposium or read it at www.thespoontheory.com.  About midway through you will find the message for you, with or without an illness or disability. 

What are YOU doing to use your spoons wisely by not giving them all away and having some left to use?
