Maybe it is just me, but when I am experiencing a bad moment, I like to shut my eyes and visualize another place, doing my best to transport myself to another, more pleasant location.
If you do this too, do you have a favorite place you like to think about and if so, I would love to read about it, if you care to share. As always, thank you for taking time to be here, I always appreciate your visit.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.
life has a way of leaving us with scars…….well traveled paths embedded into our brains dictating to us how we view and experience life, how we see ourselves and the way we react to life’s experiences.
many times we are not even conscious of these thoughts…….they have been implanted, taught or rehearsed over many years………
much like the sand, the wind manipulates by force how to display itself with out even asking for permission…..
today, I am sending out a gentle reminding that YOU have feet, you CAN move in a positive direction, you can begin to CHANGE your thoughts, beliefs, desires, and choices………only you can take away the power of the past.
In light of all that is going on in the world, I decided to change directions with my question of the week. My heart and soul are craving uplifing words and I am sure I am not alone.
So, my question for all of you amazingly awesome people out there is, “What is one of your favorite quotes, sayings, verses, poems, or mantras that lifts your heart and mind when you are feeling overwhelmed?”
~ Thank you so much for visiting and commenting, please take care of yourself, and each other.
Worrying is such a awfully powerful emotion. Many of us within the chronic illness community live daily with a heap of things to worry about. Our health, our finances, our family’s health, a new symptom, our new normal, fear of losing more, the state of the world, decisions on treatments, how to manage all that is required of us, and on many days, how and the heck we are just going to make it until we get to go to bed again.
It sucks. It is not good for our bodies, minds or souls to experience continuous worry and anxiety with only brief moments of quiet and calm. Even if you do not live with constant worry, it has a ability to sneek up on you when you least expect it. You may be living in the moment, consumed with what appears to be happy thoughts and BOOM, you are hit so intensely that you feel as it any moment the anxiety is literally going to take over every cell in your body and bring you to your knees.
I know we all strive to live a worry free life, to be set free from our own thoughts, to be able to live outside of our deeply wired beliefs and messages. It’s hard, especially if you have been living this way for a long time.
So my question for you this week is, “What do you do to refocus your thoughts toward peaceful and calming energy, and removing worry from your mind?”

One of my 2020 goals for simplychornicallyill is to review 6 books from WordPress bloggers who live with a chronic illness (or three). Currently, I have two publications on my to-review list, but I am searching for three more books to read this year. My first review of 2020 was The Shadow Boxersby Kim Johnson & Karen Anderson and you can find my thoughts here.
So, if you are a chronically ill and have published a book, or know of a WP blogger who is chronically ill, please send them a link to this post. All I need is the title of your book and I will purchase it with my own funds, give you a review on this blog, and hopefully help bring more attention to your work.
Thank you in advance for the chance to assist another chronically ill author.
` wendi is author of 3 books and you can check them out here.
