We imagine ourselves to resemble someone approaching how we feel about our lives in general. Almost as if we are chasing the idea of who we hope others perceive us to be. I know for myself, the best version of me hasn’t seen the light of day yet. Sifting through the bits and pieces of the years, I find aspects of every version I’d like to save. Then there are the parts, that need to be forgiven, and forgotten. Our time in life is more limited and more precious than you think. Regret is for the living, you won’t fret over anything, once you’re gone. Today is the best day of your life. It’s the canvas for painting your story, the way you want it told.
“Goat cheese pear crepes...”
Pain robs us of the freedom to enjoy. Funny how the brain doesn’t distinguish between physical and emotional pain, it’s all pain. That leaves us with an abundance of opportunities, where we literally have to struggle for some form of baseline enjoyment of life. Fighting off the pain for a taste of happiness.
“Let then eat cake...”
Finding the perfect blend between pleasure and pain becomes difficult, when one side of the equation is a constant. Identifying as much beauty in each and every moment becomes paramount for one day at a time... #life with pain
