Christmas motivation : Living moment to moment

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 :christmas_tree:

Merry Christmas


Powerful read thanks for sharing :blush:

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. :green_heart::purple_heart::blue_heart:
