Flexibility, When You Feel Like Breaking

patience“I don’t see myself as unbreakable. Perhaps I’m just rather flexible and adaptable.” 
~Aung San Suu Kyi
 

“Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken.”
~ Albert Camus

“The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.”
― Paulo Coelho

 

First, please go read Lisa Vooght’s Invisible Quilt. This is a mental hug, a well written piece of Flash Fiction, and well worth taking the time to read. Lisa means the world to me, and I appreciate her posting this piece again, one written earlier in the year. It comes to me at a time that enveloped me in that warm hug, giving me a great sense of peace after reading it this morning.

I don’t have a lot to say today. I am trying to take in the various feelings I have and make them work for me instead of against me. I started with a new support person this morning, and I felt heard, and I hope I have been given some tools to help me cope, even out, and come to grips with all that assails me; sometimes even the most minor of things just seems like TOO MUCH. That happens when you’re  overwhelmed, when so much is dumped on you all at once.

There is a great support system around me. I thank them, one and all, for the words and offers and kindnesses.

I’m sending out good thoughts and prayers to one and all. There are dire times for many, in so many different ways, but it all comes down to coping, concern, caring, patience that the good will return, and that we grow with what we’ve gone through, instead of being defeated and broken.

“Teach me always to believe in my power to return to life, to hope, and to You, God, no matter what pains I have endured, no matter how far I have strayed from You. Give me the strength to resurrect my weary spirit. Revive me, God, so I can embrace life once more in joy, in passion, in peace. Amen.”~
