I will never settle for a life where I’m housebound, especially when I’m feeling fairly well. I will never settle for a life where I’m not able to participate in things I care about and spend time with people who care about them too. I miss having friends that I can go and hang out with. I will never settle for a life where I’m not trying to learn, trying to grow, trying to do more than I was able to do before.
I feel most alive when I’m reading, when I’m writing, when I’m learning in different ways. I feel most alive when I can encourage other people. I feel most alive when I’m finding ways to make a difference.
Tonight I am letting go of letting those around me affect how I feel by the way they treat me.
What I need most in my world is to be part of a community, to have friends to love me and for me to love, to be active and involved in things that matter, and to be at peace inside myself.
To me, courage looks like the people who support dying people in their journey to the end of their lives. It terrifies me to think of watching someone pass into a new world.
The question that inspires me most today is “how can we find our niche in this world and be certain that we’re doing right?”
