Truth being totally free
"Do not let making a living prevent you from making a life." - John Wooden
I have had some time for self refection. I started my literary book project that has been knocking around my mind for some time now. I have not been living a life of truth. I have been half-footing my life as...(insert title). If it were not for my chronic illness, I would still be flopping around. Working, hustling to earn a promotion in the public school system, borrowing from Peter to pay Paul, we never broke even in Northern NJ, constantly stressing about our kids. I was exhausted, praying that once..(insert change), it would bring joy and fulfillment to my life. My chronic illness was the change my body and mind deemed necessary.
I have to move slower. I have to move with intent. I have to allot for the energy of the day. I will continue to have my struggles, physical and emotional but I feel better equip to deal with these varying issues. I keep my day at a constant schedule because I need time to sit, time to breathe, give thanks for another day to be creative, to enjoy my day. Lupies, Cheers to another day!
