Have faith.

Seeing The Good: Day 19

It’s days like today that make me feel like I can conquer just about anything. Pain might have been a bit of a problem, but I got myself out of bed, had some coffee, and made it to Sunday Mass for the first time in months. The whole family didn’t go, just me and my mother, which was nice. We haven’t had much us time in a while. I also paid a visit to my grandmother who I haven’t seen since the week after Christmas. We had quite a few laughs as we always do, along with my aunt and uncle who were also there. Today was good.

It’s been a rough week, to say the least, so I’m very thankful for today. Very. If you follow my posts regularly, you’ll notice I didn’t post on the 17th. I know I said I would post something positive each day for a month, no matter what, but I’ve been overcome with such pain, I was unable to.  All this suffering day in and day out, not seeming like we’ll ever catch a break, really weighs us down. We do get these “breaks” thrown at us every now and then. And we mustn’t put them off. If we feel up to it, that we can push ourselves with our pain at a bearable level, just go. Go after whatever your heart is desiring to do at that moment and don’t think twice about it, just do it. You’ll be glad you did.

I truly didn’t think today would have been such a great turnout considering the lack of sleep I struggled with the night before. It was a mixture of both pain and emotions that just took over and got the best of me. After today, I’m most definitely in a better light of things now, but know I will succumb to those thoughts and emotions again, only hopefully, it will hurt less.

I’ll leave you with part of a scripture that was read today during Mass that I think many of us need to remind ourselves of often; “Thus says the Lord: Remember not the events of the past, the things of long ago consider not.”

I sincerely hope you can rid yourself of any negative past events. Whether it means forgiving another, letting go, or making a different positive change in your life, no matter how hard it is to do, just know you are not alone. Look here or to others that have or are going through a similar situation. You’ll be surprised at the amount of understanding–and just being able to relate to someone.

Here’s to an even better tomorrow. Sending love and strength, always.

Seeing The Good: Day 14

Today’s post is dedicated to you. Yes, you

I want to thank all my followers and anyone else who takes time out of their day to read my posts. I truly mean it when I say words cannot describe how much your feedback means to me and your never-ending support. All of you. 

Starting this blog has definitely made such a positive difference in my life. I guess we all think no one is going to ever read what we have to say or what we think. Then, everything changes when you get your first comment, your first like, your first reblog, your first follower, and seeing the number of views right after you make a post. But even if I didn’t get comments, likes or any views–I’d still post, I would still try to be someone’s voice.

And that’s what I’ll continue to do. Thank you. Thank you for making someone who has felt so very helpless and lost, like she’s found home again. It’s because of you that she feels worth it. And not alone.

I hope I can do the same for you.

Happy Valentines Day, my friends. I hope love finds you not just today, but every day.

Seeing The Good: Day 12

“Don’t be discouraged. It’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.” ~Unknown

I found this quote very uplifting. On days where you feel like you’ve just had it with everything, remember that there is something better on the other side. We will get past this illness, we will get past these struggles. We will. There’s always a reason to keep hanging in there. Always. Even when it feels like we’re hanging on by a thread, there’s always a reason.

Here’s to conquering yet another day and getting closer to unlocking that stubborn ol’ lock!

Seeing The Good: Day 10

I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate to share since it’s just been the kind of day where you’re constantly fighting with yourself to think positive, to put on a smile–everything. The pain is indescribable, you can’t move and you feel so incredibly helpless.

I know I’ll get through this. I know the pain will pass. Relief will come, it will. And you need to remind yourself the very same. It will pass, it will pass. We often forget to remind ourselves that because it doesn’t feel like the pain will ever subside. We often wake with the same pain we have fallen asleep with the night before or are still battling the same pain or worse with no sleep at all. Calling it a battle doesn’t even describe the half of it. And we still rise each and every day.

You’re a fighter, a true warrior.

Here’s to a better tomorrow. “This too, shall pass.”
