January 4th...a gift to me from someone I love who has passed, a meditation book specifically written for mental health.
Our Lives Can Change
Our lives can change if we let them. Once we have been lifted from th depths of despair and are no longer prisioners of our illness, we will have opportunities to achieve things we once thought impossible. We will find the courage and strength to cope with each day. Hopelessness will be replaced with hope and faith. We will learn that we are not alone and that others are willing to help us. We will come to know ourselves and accept ourselves as we are~~not merely for what we think we should become. We will know serenity and become at peace with the world around us.
Do I believe my life can change today? Am I willing to let positive changes happen?
Thought for the day
Sometimes positive change is an act of will, and sometimes it's just letting good things happen.
I do wonder sometimes about 'what I think I should be'...as a person and as a person who is numb to the world with a closed heart not wanting or being able to take in any more pain and living in isolation. Or should I be the person who could do self care, keep a clean home, be a single parent and work a job and juggle everyday life.
I'm on a merry-go-round that doesn't play a nice musical tune, I hear only why are you not doing what the right thing is to do, and just saying fuck it to life by doing nothing to help myself move forward.
