As I Sit Here...

Posted by angelica1966 , 01 March 2014 · 109 views

As I sit here
   staring out my window
      I see a barren land left frozen by the chill of winter...
         Yet, in the distance, I also see green...life...
 
And so, I think...
   I like to think and then again I don't...
But I want to return to the former
   and ponder on this road...
                           this journey...
                           our journey...
 
As nature blasts out its swirls
   of temperatures and seasons
      so, too, does this life of ours:
         the swirls of feelings and emotions...unending however they may seem...
            we go from one extreme to the other: of elation to depression and back round through the cycle once more...
 
We feel weakened...
   defeated...
      overwhelmed...
         beaten...
 
Yet let us not forget though
   there IS another side...
 
Though we may feel the aforementioned
   we can choose to see the other side:
      WE ARE STRONG! for we survived/are surviving...
      WE ARE VICTORIOUS when we learn something that transforms us anew...
      WE ARE ENCOURAGEMENT for and encouraged by others we meet along the way...
      WE ARE REVITALIZED with a vigor of new found life...
 
Yes...we will have set backs...
   we will have sad days...
   we will have challenging days...
   we will have days we will want to quit...
   we will have days we will doubt...
   we will have days we will scream at the world...
   we will have days we will roll up in a ball and hide...
  
But I also believe that we will have days
   of sunshine instead of rain...
   of laughter instead of tears...
   of joy instead of sorrow...
   of hope instead of despair...
   of peace instead of pain...
   of freedom instead of chains...
   of acceptance instead of denial...
   of courage instead of fear...
 
But whatever day we may be going through,
   one thing I know for sure is that I have my personal support group...
Though I am saddened that we understand one another's journey of feelings and emotions...
   I am grateful and humbled to know that I am not alone in this journey...
      and neither are you...
 
Thank you to all those who have become my friends...my family...
   grateful for your presence in my life...
 
Peace to all of you...
Here for you as you journey on...
Strength and encouragement for your days...

Welcome to pandys, HealingMe...please know that you are not alone in your journey...we understand one another...we understand the journey...here for you...here for one another...

 

Thank you for the gracious words as well...

That makes me smile. You have encapsulated our journeys - both individually and together - so beautifully. And me being me - I love the optimism because that speaks of hope. And hope is what helps us heal. Thank you my friend :-) (It's white win

(It's white wine tonight with fish - shall I pour you a glass ;-P) Don't know what happened to the post - it's split itself!!! (Bit like me sometimes ;-$)

Thank you, my friend...it was actually you and Fin that got me to sit and contemplate...

I am in awe of the power of this place. It really is a place of healing. I am sure that without people I have met and who I consider 'friend', like you and Fin and Mac and Allegro and Jan H and Qurious and Jiva and Pumpkinnoodle and Susie (I think that's everyone - hope I haven't missed anyone!) that my healing would not be accelerating at the rate that it currently is. I can feel the good days far outweighing the bad. And my insights are clearer. Resonate within me more.

 

Yes, writing, reading, understanding, being understood......all very normalising and therefore most healing!

 

(((Big hugs to all my Pandy Pals)))))

Yes...I wasn't quite sure at first how this was all going to work at first...but slowly and surely it is and will...I see hard and challenging days on the horizon for myself and am trying to be prepared as much as able...but knowing that I have this haven of rest and friends like you here, I think I'll be ok...
