“What day is it?”
It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day,” said Pooh.”
~ A.A. Milne
It’s a year since I first started my Lyme meds. I’d like to say that time has flown, but that would not necessarily be true…
Still, a year ago I was dying. I could barely catch my breath. My poor heart was about ready to throw in the towel. Things were grim.
Now I’m twelve months down the track, and that track certainly hasn’t been an easy one, but I’m hanging in. Sure it’s uncomfortable having to live through this drug therapy. It’s inconvenient being in pain, tired and muddle-headed. But hey, I’m still here.
I’m still here.
Today I’m going to savour each moment. I’ll breathe the salty air of Byron Bay and draw it deep into my lungs. I will lie on the grass at the farm and feel the sun on my face and the earth beneath my back. Every sip of tea, every mouthful of food – I’ll honour it. I’ll let myself really taste it.
I’ll surrender myself to each moment. It doesn’t need to be special. An ordinary day is just fine by me.
It’s all good. The hurty bits. The sad bits. The boring bits. The lonely bits. The fun bits. The tasty bits. The loved-up bits.
It’s all good. And I’m so glad to be here.
Thanks for sharing the journey with me.
My wish for you today is that you take a moment and really BE. Just be in your skin. Just breathe in that air. Be present with the ones you love. Savour the ordinary. Savour the miracle that is your life. Will you do that for me?
Much love to you, and some squishy big hugs, Nicole xx
