Why Is This Happening To Me?

I decided to go behind the mic and record an impromptu show.  I was not prepared. I usually have my ideas written down on the subject I intend to speak on.Things have been so hectic lately, that my notes have been reduced to mental notes.   A very bad habit, that I regret picking up. If you have an idea, write it down IMMEDIATELY or risk it disappearing into thin air. I got inspired by my post on World Cancer Day “ Between A Rock and A Hard Place” . To date, it is the hardest piece I have ever written. I felt like I had not exhausted it fully and offered a solution to those going through a bad situation.

Between A Rock & A Hard Place

Between A Rock & A Hard Place

Life happens when it happens and there is nothing you can do about it. Time is everything. Seasons exist for that reason, to remind us that change is inevitable.  I talk of terminal illness and dealing with it. Especially, when dealing with a terminal ill or sickly family member, spouse, friend or person. The most important thing is realising that spending an hour or two away from the patient enjoying yourself, does not mean you are being selfish. In order to stay strong, it is important to take care of self as well. Either by going to the gym, doing yoga, eating right or staying in a positive mindset. If you need a confidence boost, dress sharply.  Not to cover what you are going through; but for yourself. SHOW UP!!! If you don’t do the things you used to do (in smaller doses obviously), you make the patient wonder if they are a burden to you.  Also if you can’t have joy in your life it may lead to depression and give way to a fear.

Hugs and strength to you,

Namaste,
