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.
Hello wonderful human beings.
My question for you today is a simple one. Although I try to keep things upbeat, I have learned through a lot of trial and error that in order for me to heal to the best of my ability, I must first accept my present situation and go from there. So, my question for you today is, “What has been the most difficult thing for you to accept on your chronic journey?”
~ Thank you for stopping by to visit and your willingness to share part of your journey.
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.
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.
crawling over the jagged rocks of life past
they puncture my thickened skin
blood dribbles from my palms
releasing anguish deep inside
my knees bleed
sending despair from my body
blood pours out as the rocks cut deeper
disenfecting my soul
when the world seems stacked against you
and the wind is refusing to be at your back
lights appear to dim as you walk into a room
flowers wilt and die before your tired eyes
and those who are suppose to love you never seemed to care
these moments in life can overtake us
creating a sense of feeling unworthy, useless, spent
but you are so very beautiful and you are loved,
if not by those who fail to see your inherent worth,
remember you are cherished by the one who created you
and the beauty of life will reveal itself to you as
a new day will dawn
the fog will clear
and clouds will part
the rain will halt
the sun will shine
birds will sing
and flowers will bloom
that you experience true love
soaking in the sweetness of being loved for who you are
no matter what your failings, limitations or inabilities that may fill your body
that you feel safe in the arms of another
held when you are unsure or scared
lying closely as your heartbeats create a synchronous rhythm of comfort and respect
that your hand will be held with gentleness and caring to help guide you through life
you are comforted when ill
and protected when you are weak
that you find joy in their presence
your 1,000th kiss will feel like the first
and your day will not be complete without seeing the beauty of your love reflected back in their face
life put you on the coaster
to go for the ride
may there be some happy turns

There are days that I just can not pretend to be ok for one more second. The pain. The fog. The fear. The unknown. It gets the best of me, despite how hard I try to ignore it. It is in these moments that I fall apart.
I cry a personal brook, weeping myself into moments of inconsolable sadness. As I try to pull myself out of the despair, I think about all the people who have it worse, who are in their own part of the world crying their own personal stream………babbling to themselves that no one understands.
I visualize the tears of those who cry out for help………turning into streams………the streams all meeting up forming an ocean of tears…..
These tears are not seen by many, only those who live within the ocean, on an island of illness………..it is only when the winds pick up and the ocean gains strength enough to cry out do we really see the others who live here too.
But here in the ocean of tears, you find an abundance of life, completely different than what you would find on land – but beautiful just the same.
