Happy Friday Everyone!

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

Lao Tzu

I think I have found some semblance of peace and order in my life. It’s been chaos for what feels like forever. I can finally breathe for a minute. I don’t think I have ever had this feeling before. At least, I don’t recall a time where I truly felt that I was accepting of myself. I mean truly accepting of what I can offer the world. Is this feeling real?

I find myself taking in deep breaths, which I can tell you is a major improvement since my shallow breathing has been a concern for a while. Now, I feel like I am breathing in everything around me. I feel more alive than ever before. I know that I still face challenges, but I face them with a different perspective.

I had thought that chronic illness somehow meant that I had reached my potential. How could I progress in any way in life while living like this? Well, I was wrong. For me, it was about accepting what I CAN do, and not dwelling on the things I can’t. That was the key for me. I spent all of my time pining over things that I can’t have. It doesn’t do anyone any good, and quite frankly, it just made me depressed.

There is no telling where I can go from here. Is it everything I always wanted out of life? No. But, why can’t it be exactly what I need out of life?
