Found this blog post especially useful for us MAVericks where we need to hold on to good moments and not lose hope.
Thank you for posting this. What an inspiration.
I definitely haven’t reached acceptance yet.
Christmas is a beautiful but tough time I find. I like seeing family, but am also reminded of everything I’ve lost in the past half year.
That said, I keep going, I’ve been given the gift of life, and of a child to look after.
I wish you all a good Christmas.
@LucyLabrador hope you have a beautiful Christmas with your little one
Powerful read thanks for sharing
Have a lovely Christmas Lucy
Merry Christmas everyone!
As Christmas is upon us once again, and I am more or less confined to bed, I find myself seeking out the voices of others who are in a similar predicament. It was Covid infection this year that tipped me over the edge, and though I am slowly (VERY slowly) making my way back to baseline, I am reminded again of how I, and those close to me, must adjust to this new way of being. Since I first got ill 6 years ago, I have had many ups and downs and plenty of challenging Christmases, and have always hoped and prayed for a better year next time around. But what I have learned is to really notice and take in the good when it comes and try to find trust within through the bad - trust that it will get easier again soon.
Today I will be listening to Carols, having a mince pie if I can stomach it, and reflecting on the year that’s been, remembering all my high moments.
Wishing you all a joyous and peaceful day, regardless of how well you feel.
What a lovely piece of writing I hope you get well soon and try and have a nice Christmas. You will get better soon
