Happy Meme Monday: Maybe I’ll Blink, Maybe

It’s been one of those weeks. That week when your parents lease is up and nothing has gone as intended, having no other place to go, offered my home while they find a new place, they said yes, I rearranged the rooms so we’d make room for the grandparents, on the same week that my three year was evaluated to know if he qualifies to enter preschool and did i mention all the while, still potty training him! Phew – I know, that was a lot to take in.

This meme is me in a nut shell, and with what little energy I have left, I’ll contemplate whether to use it for breathing or blinking – decisions, decisions.

Happy Meme Monday: Find Your Joy Today

This is more of a ‘Motivational Monday‘ then it is ‘Meme’ but I loved this message so much, I just had to share. I was moved by this because although I was never one to have planned my future at a young age, I didn’t see a chronic illness in my future and my present life. The picture was never clear, I only knew two things, one, that I wanted to get married and two, I wanted to have kids. These two have been such a blessing. However, in 2013 the picture was distorted – for the better. And I say for the better because at times I got very comfortable with life and with this illness, it’s helped me find myself – slowly but surely, realize things I otherwise wouldn’t have been able to and also, be able to live in the moment. It’s helped me see that life is uncertain, things happen, health issues arise, to let go and let God and to accept things I can not change.

Inspiration Is Everywhere – Even Star Wars

Inspiration Is Everywhere – Even Star Wars

With Summer vacation still in full swing – and chronic pain still sneaking it’s ugly head, we’ve had a couple of things going on. So, one of those things being catching up on all things Star Wars. I’ll admit, I’ve never fully seen all of the Star Wars movies. And the one that has been on repeat with my little ones has been The Phantom Menace, can I just say, wow – amazing! I can really see what the ‘buzz’ is all about with Star Wars, from the special effects, to the wardrobe, to the lines, to the makeup – it’s all mesmerizing.

So, today’s inspiration came from Yoda, there’s 9 year old Anakin standing in front of the Jedi council when Yoda senses Anakin is afraid. In return Anakin replies to Yoda in a sort of defensive manner. But, Yoda in turn offered these words to Anakin ….

Fear is the Path to the Dark Side.

Fear Leads to Anger. 

Anger Leads to Hate.

Hate Leads to Suffering. – Yoda

I’m guilty of this, of allowing people to lead me to this path of – what seems, no return. I allow things and life circumstances to overwhelm me, for me it’s Chiari + Syringomyelia, for you it maybe a separation, a breakup, a job loss, a bad grade, it maybe anything and just like that, it takes over any positive thoughts you may have had. It’s so incredibly true, fear, anger, hate can only lead us to being stuck in the darkest moments and in return only hurt us – no one else, but us. And lead us into even more suffering.
