Gratitude - Story

Gratitude - Story

We're surrounded by stories, and Sage Wolfsong centers on helping others tell theirs. What story are you most grateful for?

My choice for this is an odd one and is deeply personal. It’s the story of how Hubby and I came near the end, and how our marriage survived despite infidelity and bitterness.


Gratitude - Art

Gratitude - Art

Picasso or DaVinci? What piece of art are you most grateful for?

Art comes in many flavors and forms, but there's one piece in particular that really sparks my thinking and reminds me that it's okay to be imperfect.


Gratitude - Body

Gratitude - Body
Frankly, most days, it sucks to live in my body. It hurts, it's tired, half the time, no matter how willing my mind and spirit are, my body just won't get on board with the program. I'm 130 pounds + overweight. I can barely do a plank, and my walking stamina is all of about 30 minutes before I'm stumbling over my own feet on a flat surface.

Gratitude - Abilities

Gratitude - Abilities
I have a reading list that is pages long, and an entire blog devoted to reviews. Books gave me a new career when I thought I was used up and useless because of my disabilities - not just because I can read and write reviews (which I do in copious quantities), but also because I've gotten ideas from them for expanding myself into areas I never would have dreamed of before

What goes around, goes around again.

This probably won't be a quick post (my apologies), but I want to direct this particular gratitude entry towards those dealing with chronic pain and chronic fatigue. I want you to know, I see you. I feel your struggle because I'm stuck right there alongside you.

First off, for those who think that chronic fatigue is "just like the day after I partied too much," you're so far from the truth that it aches. Maybe, on some level, it's just like that day you partied too much. Times 365. 366 some years.
