Living Our Best Life – fear

Fear, just typing out this word makes me feel anxious. It is an emotion that I struggle with on a continuous basis.

I am sure there are many of you who live with a chronic illness 24/7 who are also in the same boat, and it is not a cruise or a party boat. Instead, it is one that you fear may sink, capsize, or may not make it to your preferred destination.

So my question for you today is, IF you experience fear, how do you handle this emotion?

As always, thank you so very much for stopping by today. I appreciate each and EVERY one of you who visit here, you are a blessing.

living your best life possible – choices

Almost every single person who is diagnosed with a chronic illness is forced to give up something.  And if we are to be deeply honest, it is usually a bucket filled with somethings.  It sucks, there is no other way around it.  But, this doesn’t mean that our lives are not worth just as much as they were before,  things are just different.

Sometimes we are forced to give up something after our diagnosis and sometimes we choose to give up things that we believe will make a positive impact in our lives.

So, my question for the week is, What is one thing that YOU have chosen to give up that has had a positive impact on your life?

Thank you so very much for sharing!

living our best life – one thing

Hello wonderful humans, I hope today is treating you well.

My question for you this week is a simple one.  Although I try to keep things upbeat, I have learned that one of the ways to heal to the best of our ability is to accept the present situation and go from there.

So, my question for you today is,  If you were given the chance to do ONE THING that you are no longer are able to do, what would it be, and have you found a suitable replacement?  

living our best life – regret

Thinking about regrets, it is my guess that every person on this Earth could verbalize at least one thing they wished they had or had not done.  It is also my belief that having regrets in life is just part of being human.  We live, we learn, and if we never had a regret then I am not sure we would be truly living and/or learning.  We make the very best decision we can at the time and hope and pray for the best.

Now we know we can’t go back to re-create our past, but we can think about our future selves.  So my question for you today is, “What is something you will regret if you do not complete/accomplish/do in your lifetime?”

 

~ Thank you so very much for taking the time to visit and comment.  Your presence here is a blessing to me and so many others.

I know for many of us, how we can spend our perfect day may have changed over the years.  Even if the activities that we can participate in have changed, we can still enjoy OUR lives to the fullest, especially when we are having a good day!  So my friends, my question for you this week is, “Describe how you would spend your perfect day?”

~ Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment.  I hope today is treating you well.

Today’s question is short and sweet,What is one thing that you have learned about yourself since you have become chronically ill?”

 

~ Thank you very much for stopping by, reading, and leaving a comment.  Please know that sharing a small part of your world means a lot to me and others who read your reflections.    

living our best life – change

Change, such a small word with so many connotations, and a word that those of us with chronic illness can relate to on many levels.  Yes, change is a part of life no matter who you are, and lately all of us have been going through at least some minimal changes in our daily lives.

 

My question for you this week is, “What is one way that your life has changed since the pandemic started and has this change had a positive or negative impact on your living situation?”

 

~ Thank you so very much for taking the time to stop by and and respond to this week’s question.  Please know that I am praying for all of you and I wish the very best for each and every one of you.

Don’t allow your body to physically trap your mind

Your body may hold you back at times but that does not mean your mind must stay in the cage

Allow your thoughts to go free

Free to soar above the pain, confusion, and fear

Free to see yourself from an unanchored perspective

Where the beauty is abundant

Would you like a letter?

As many of us around the world are in isolation, it feels very surreal to me.  Even though I spend more time at home then most people, it still feels odd not to be able to freely move around my little neck-of-the-woods when I am able.

Thank goodness for the ability to connect with others through our beloved wifi.  It is such a blessing to still feel close to those we are not able to spend time with.

But, I have to admit, I have always enjoyed receiving a real letter in the mail.  There is something special knowing that someone took the time and energy to sit down and write out a note just for you.

So, if you feel this way too, please let me know.  I would be thrilled to send you a letter, even if you live on the other side of the world.  I don’t want people feeling isolated from real contact.  I know a letter is not real contact but I feel it is a bit more personal than a text or a response on a post.

Please do NOT leave your address in the comment section but instead send me a message through my contact page.  If you do not hear back from me in 48 hours, I did not receive you message and please try again.

Please know I care about each and everyone of you.
