What Courage, Faith & Skills Have You Learned from Chronic Illness?

chronic illness, are you only seeing part of the picture?

Moving forward requires looking at illness from a different perspective. Dr. Randy Michaux said, “During chronic illness, what courage, faith, and skills have you learned.” I love LOVE LOVE this!!!!

Asking Why Not, Instead of Why

healing... why not?

Chronic illness has kicked our bums, wiped us out, destroyed our lives, relationships and finances. It is easy to ask “WHY the heck did it happen” and more importantly “WHY did it happen to me.” Very logical and reasonable questions. What about the WHY NOT?

Here, we don’t even need to stick our heads under water. We are simply turning the moment into slow motion as it would feel underwater. Slowing our breath, our reactions, our thoughts, our heart rates so that our resting bodies can kick into high gear healing.
