Life is Like a Bowl of Cherries

Life is like a bowl of cherries

Cherries are in season and fresh cherries are on my brain. I think I have eaten so many that I have gone fruitloopy. Now I am thinking that life is like a bowl of cherries; sometimes it is the pits, sometimes it sweet, sometimes fresh and in season and sometimes frozen from the freezer. It is just life after all. It comes with the variety and adventure of not only eating in the season but living in season.

Awe Takes Me To We

Moving our vision to the awe of life nourishes us. Easier said than done during illness. When we are chronically ill, we simply have to focus on ME to be able to move through the issues. Then, at some point, we have a sense that it is time to look up, outside of that intense focus. It is time to look at the awe in life. The more we see it, the more we move from ME to WE. We have more compassion for others because our vision has increased through awe. Tricky stuff when we are ill.

Need A Moment Of Bliss

Do you ever need to call a time-out, making things still just for a moment to calm the stress? I needed to de-stress ME, so I picked the thought of blowing dandelions to create my moment of bliss. It totally turned around 2 very stress-filled weeks.

Was I Ever Crazy…

Was I ever crazy, maybe. Or maybe life is. Crazy isn’t being broken, or swallowing a dark secret. It is you or me, amplified. If you have ever told a lie and enjoyed it. If you ever wished you could be a child, forever. They were not perfect, but they were my friends.” People are just precious people, without all the labels.

Happy Earth Day, Wanderlust For the Chronically Ill

I know, Earth Day “should” be about saving the Earth, and rightly so. Then there is the mind of ill people, sucked into the depths of yuck-and-muck. What if we used Earth Day to celebrate the Earth, regardless of chronic illness? What if we could use the day as a vehicle to mind travel, wanderlust. Get outside of ourselves, our hurting tired bodies and minds. A moment of relief from the daily grind of chronic illness!

The New Mental “Normal” – Pixilated

Being called crazy is just part of life. Who exactly is “normal?” Or are we all just a bit pixilated? Chronic illness is the perfect time to learn about pixilated people and find a new “norm.”

Don’t Paint Me As A Victim, I Am Above That, So Are You

Don’t paint me as a victim, I am so much more than that, so are you. Victims we are but… Victim defines us only when we let it. Being a victim holds us a prisoner when we have so much more to offer the world. Remove the bars, the barriers, the prejudices, the pigeon holes that are useless and be who we are through our difficult circumstances. Get above it!!!!

Everything Is Figureoutable

Really and truly, everything really and truly is figure-out-able. If you have ever had a chronic illness (or ten at the same time), you have figured out that we have to figure it out. Sitting around waiting for the Figure-It-Out-Fairy never works. And the Figure-It-Out-POLICE cannot stop us, how fun is THAT???
