Say it ain’t so

Honestly a reality that I got smacked in the face with. At the same time I like to think it made me grow. I learned to have more patience for others. Especially when it comes to people I hardly know.

I’ve always been used to good byes that were never said but happen.

It’s an even more interesting view when it’s because of something you can’t control. You notice who makes the effort no matter how small, the ones that speak and there’s action vs no action.

I’m not one to chase.

I wonder though people always have come and gone through different chapters in life. Grew up moving every couple years I’m used to adapting and overcoming .

I realize as sad as it makes me there was no means to stopping it from happening. I push myself way more than I should and pay for it each an every time. People I would do anything for poof .

I’m realizing some that I wasn’t as close to actually make more of an effort . Family and friends alike . It’s interesting how some I new and was close to when young but faded has been re kindled . Also people that put on a show of our relationship or time together just poof . Like it was never there, they keep on flowing down the river in there life and chapter without me.

The older and as my symptoms progress I realize my circle is smaller and smaller yet I just don’t know … anyone

Gifts come when you least expect🫶

In Bali..this little one visited me every single morning where I stayed. It would be standing on the opposite edge of the table. I would place my hand by it and it would start walking towards me. It literally stood on my fingernail every morning while I ate breakfast.
Hope you are all doing well and this puts a smile on your face..😌
Much love & light to you 🙏💜

My sunshine when I wake

Am honestly having a challenging morning but when I opened my door I was greeted by this. 🥰 My so very affectionate Ren. Yes, I pick him up like a baby. He has filled that space that I can no longer do with my grown adult girls. I just can't wrap him up like a burrito. I think he gets anxiety. 😆 Anyways, he plays a huge part of letting me forget I'm hurting and replaces it with the feeling of him purring on my heart. 🥰
I hope you all are feeling ok and can smile even once today.
Love & light

A Painless hobby

So I use to be able to do a lot. I was the master at multitasking, working out, different forms of art. But for the last 20 years it gradually went downhill. Eventually I accepted what is and lived each day the best I can. I've always been an active person so not being able to do as much as the person before, that was the most difficult. One day I happened to be browsing and saw that one activity I've always loved has a Botanical Garden line. Legos! I was so happy! And it's affordable.
So I thought I'd share one that's also a favorite flower of mine...the orchid.
Maybe someone out there would like to do this as well.😄 #Lupus #fibro #chronicpain #ChronicFatigue #PTSD #Anxiety #Depression #MentalHealth #SuicideSurvivor #Migraine #abuse #toxicity #Selflove
