Never been one for making New Years resolutions…or maybe its just I didn’t stick to ’em at all so would rather not make them in the first place than have to admit I gave up within the day. Or the hour. Or the minute
…Lately, I have been reflecting on the fact that this adventurous illness has pushed me to have greater resolve to live each second dynamically. Life is more precious now than it has ever been in my life and I refuse to get caught up in the minutiae of my thoughts and psyche myself out of living. Thinking. Praying. Writing. Speaking. Being.
Life also takes more effort to just get through each day…some mornings I wake up & just can’t bear the thought of enduring another day. I count the hours until sleep. The pain just is too much at times…yet, it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere and has definitely settled in for a cozy, long winters nap so I need to find a way to have relationship with the unwanted visitor. I have lovely people in my life & very happy distractions-I desire to really embrace them.
So, 2016 will be a year of seizing every second. Embracing each painful and each not-so-painful day (celebrating those day(s) big!). Looking for the good in others. Extending grace. Rolls of laughter & tears. Living wild.
