My Life is getting old. Not just the years that have accumulated but the scenarios in my past and present, future too. If it’s not just one calamity after another, it’s another gross disappointment or health issue and the black cloud that looms above us. Circling us like black hawks over newly killed animals waiting to swoop down excited to eat.
Yes, dear optimistic people, I do try so hard to project a positive image, I send healing thoughts and love to the Universe, I pray for good things for all and not just myself, I try to make a positive difference in the world in any small way I can. I smile, I care, I reach out, I do good deeds, willingly, lovingly.
What happens? Nothing much. If I can make someone laugh or smile that’s a definite plus, if I can offer an elderly person my arm to cross the street or to carry their grocery bags, that’s great, I feel good for a second. Then, that feeling goes away.
Doing nice things is not the answer, I know, feeling good things will happen, is sure part of it but I’ve felt that for so long it is tiring me out. I have tried that approach for many, many months and I am burned out. I am exhausted, hoping, that life will take a turn for the better.
Here we sit, my brown pillow and in the house on a sunny day, lying on the bed with no energy. I could be doing many things but I have no energy, no will, just an overwhelming feeling of tiredness. I’m taking comfort in hiding, resting and blaming my Fibromyalgia for all that ails me and so much more.
I feel you as I too have spent way to many days on the inside looking out into a beautiful, sunny day with no energy to do anything with it. You are a good person and so am I, and ‘they’ say if you put gratitude and kindness out there into the universe, it will come back to you. Well, I manifest slowly too!! I just try to release any expectations for myself, am grateful when good things come to me and keep putting one foot in front of the other, but I fall down all the time, so please don’t be hard on yourself. But I do know how damn hard it is so sending gentle hugs!! Nurture yourself, be good to you. xo
