Finding my Strength

 

“Don’t let your luggage define your travels, each life unravels differently.”
— Shane Koyczan

 

This week for me has been difficult. I have been dealing with a mental health crisis of a family member which is about the hardest thing I have ever had to do. At times it feels like it would be so easy to give in to hopelessness or lose it myself or just collapse. Yet somehow, perhaps because I know I need to stay strong in the situation and because I will not give up on someone I love, I find that I have more strength than I knew. I know that I can see this through simply because it is necessary and that at the end of it, there will be clear skies and then I can relax (and possibly fall apart a bit myself). I will not give into fear (tho I acknowledge it) but will do what is needed each step of the way.
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – July 18 2012

“What matters most is how well you walk through the fire”
― Charles Bukowski

 

I have two pictures in my mind with this quote. One is of people who have not only survived the types of trauma that most of us have to undergo at one time or another in our lives. Tho our trials may differ in nature they have similar intensity. My other image is of fire walkers who walk on burning coals without getting harmed because they know they can do it. Could you imagine how much easier your fires would have been to walk through if you knew ahead of time you could do it? I feel totally in awe of what some people I know have survived. Some of them have been broken by trauma and others have been made magnificent.
Blessings, G
