I know a lot of the support on here is around meds/therapists and treatments. All around what we can do to control our conditions and live the best possible life we can. Decided to post something a little different tonight.
I just went outside, while letting the dog out before bed, and I just took a few minutes to look up at the sky. Its beautiful out, nice breeze, and I just stood there, and took a few deep breaths. Realizing the world is so vast and theres just so much to be grateful for. To be here, still breathing, theres a reason for it. And all the problems we each have, in the grand scheme, they aren't so big. Finding a way to be accepting of ourselves, loving ourselves, and living life is just so important. I mean what else are we here for?
Yes we have these illnesses, that make it hard to live, make it a struggle, but we all have had good times as well. We keep going, despite it all, and that shows incredible strength in each of us, regardless if anyone understands it or not. And I feel that deep within us all, is the capacity to feel good, to feel like ourselves. I have tried to combine some more spiritual perspective in my illness, to realize it is just goes so far beyond whats on the surface. And to take a moment, here or there, to just stop and look at the world and appreciate it.
Wishing you all inner peace and a great night
