in my mind i am running free, like the wild horses, across the land without a care in the world
in my mind my body is capable, and I can freely go wherever it will take me
in my mind, my spirit is strong and independent just like the horses that run free
wild horses running free…..to move with such power and grace…..
…….in my mind…….
I am searching a dense forest,
no sunlight can reach me,
its vastness surrounds me and I cannot find my way,
I whisper his name…..
and all I can hear is my own voice calling back to me…..saying
……..where are you?
moving through life at a slower pace does not make you less important……
it is giving you the chance to see the small, beautiful details in life that so many people miss
music makes the past seem real,
the future look brighter,
and the present appear less hopeless……
…don’t let the fear of the future rob you of this moment’s peace……
there are days i want to run…….run so fast that my illnesses can’t keep up.
i will keep running until i can no longer feel them nipping at my heels, stalking me, tormenting me…….
trying to catch up and derail my goals, my dreams, my future
i will keep running until i am completely out of breath and i am so far out ahead that i can hide myself from the beasts and watch them move past me……….
i will turn around and joyfully limp back to my life………
a chronic illness is like a tornado………..it starts with little warning………the right conditions merging together to create a destructive force
it can create mass devastation to everyone and everything in it’s path with no regard to human suffering
it creates mass casualties
it destroys lives in a matter of moments
sends dreams flying through the air with no safe place to land
it brings people to their knees, crying………”I lost so much”
lives must be rebuilt
and maybe, just maybe, we will be able to rebuild a good life again, complete with blue skies and sunshine
