All In

This is a powerful and incredibly uplifting post by my friend and fellow chronic illness survivor. She has launched her brand new blog, Diary of a Clay Pot, and I hope you will check it out.
If you feel you are at a pivotal time in your life, her words on transformation will resonate deeply with you.
I’m so thankful for her and for her message today.
Peace be with you.

Diary of a Clay Pot

You know when you keep hearing the same message over and over and over… When it feels like every word being said is meant for you…

Yep. That’s what it has been like lately for me. At first I wasn’t getting it. At first my ears were mute and it wasn’t registering. But slowly the volume has been turned up, the static has been lifting and it all doesn’t seem so scary. It’s becoming more clear.

For years I have tried to come to terms with my past… All of it. I have taken the steps of asking for forgiveness, accepting forgiveness and moving on. I have learned that there really is a positive purpose for everything (if you choose this) that you go through.

About abodyofhope

I do not know why it is that we must wade through tragic circumstances to find truth. We nearly drown! But under the water, there are pearls. I hope in writing this blog, more will come to the surface. Over the past 15 years living with chronic pain, patient advocacy has had a powerful effect on my life through meeting so many remarkable teens, women and men: SURVIVORS. These individuals are HOPE personified. I wish to honor them in the same spirit they have encouraged me to press on. Eight years ago, I became bed-bound from a variety of secondary chronic illnesses. A procedure meant to help the pain condition I had been managing for several years- went bust #BIGTIME. Over the years, my entire life has changed. I have changed, but I am still striving to live my best life possible. Along with sharing inspiring pieces about spiritual wellness and finding quality of life inside of ongoing illness, I also share health research, awareness information, poetry, memes, art, and this blog is also an attempt to put my own pieces back together. Welcome to A Body of Hope, and thank you for visiting.

My headgear is protective for pain. I just rock it hard ;)
