To live wholeheartedly for me would be to live without fear. To seize every moment and live it confidently, with passion even in isolation. I am actually writing this as a reminder to myself—to not give in to desperation and impatience. This too shall pass. This is the day I was given. Accept and trust.
I wasn’t feeling too grateful when I realized this was to be the last day of our collective journey. But even so, I’ll give thanks for these last days and the insightful thoughts shared by everyone. Blessings to all.
I have a friend who is away from her home right now. She is from Canada but is in California because of her work and will be staying there for about 4 months. I’ve been emailing with her, exchanging pictures, links, etc. hoping to brighten her time away from home. With everything that is going on, she can’t go out and enjoy her new surroundings.
I’m not the type to share my thoughts or leave comments. But I am trying to connect, to get out of myself and connect. Little steps.
It’s so comfortable inside, away from the problems and the decision-making. Living is hard or so it seems at times. And yet, I know that even being in isolation, life has a way of finding you and claiming your quietude. I am so afraid of so many things. If I’ve acknowledged them, why do they still have a hold on me?
Expressive smiley eyes! Yes, I’ve been doing that too. So reassuring when others smile with their eyes at us.
Thanks to your comment I just discovered the Lounge. This is so typical for me, skimming through things, people, and even, life. Just realizing this and putting it into words is kind of painful, but I am so grateful to be able to do it.
Thank you. You’re absolutely right; acknowledgement is just the first step. There’s still work for me to do.
