I am working with slow internet for now and am still wearied from the moving we have done so far and the emotions involved. No matter. Its kind of nice and we have our own pond. Beyond Golden Pond, eh ? The Astra is kaput again. Ah well. Ah well.
Bed for me and the new blog due to SilverBird 4 using up all the free gbs. So, now its bedtime. I have books I am enjoying and tonight Lisa made Carbonara Pasta which was pretty damned good.
SURRENDER TO THE GOOD.
Medically – not bad. Walked to the Prov and back. Did some shopping up town which included lunch at Hearthfire and bumped a few people who are glad I am back in Bello. My right leg has pinprick rash, some itch and some soreness. But its OK.
Surrender to the pain. Then learn to surrender to the good. It’s there and more is on the way.
HERE WE GO. The fifth of the Silverbirds. Follow the links to the other four. The story of a woman in recovery from drugs and alcohol, death of lover and a sepsis pneumonia. Do join me as I begin life in a new town and new home.
Most of all, we seek to help them rise to what for most is the supreme challenge of their lives, by developing and enjoying their unique personalities to the fullest.
– Bernie S. Siegel
Just living life, not enjoying it, is a tread-water posture some of us adopt in our lives. Afraid to get “too involved” in living, we wait for the sorts to occur. We look for a guide, a leader, to direct our path to physical and spiritual survival.
At first, we may be devastated when we realize that no one else can direct us, guide us, or lead us out of the maze of emotions that accompanies a chronic illness. Others can help, but only if we lead. Gradually we’re finding a unique strength within us, one we’d not known before, that enables us to direct our physical and spiritual programs with greater confidence.
I am on a continuing journey to accept the challenges of my life. Allowing my unique personality to surface is the beginning.
