Lots has been happening in my life lately.
One of the most exciting is getting to know others
that have the same illness as I.
To know your not alone and to have others
understand exactly what is happening.
I guess to fit, to belong, to be enough.
To be okay just as one is, accepting!
For ten years I kept telling myself, Don't sell your car,
You will drive again one day!Soon you will be better.
Well here it is 10 years this summer,
so out of the blue last week I sold my car,
My pink car named Precious.
Was I sad to let her go. No I was in charge
knowing this was the best thing for me.
That had been my independance, but I did not need to keep it
anymore as I am okay with whom I am.
Everytime I look out where I had it parked
I smile to myself, Holding onto the past no matter what
it be, can be exhausting!
I have to admit that my husband was shocked
when he came home and saw the car gone.
We had talked about it, I think he thought I never would
have sold it. He also thought I should have gotten more money.
I think I did good and I told him it was not about the money.
so now instead of a car we are going to buy a new lawnmower.
So on this long weekend
hopefully we will be cutting the grass and playing in the yard,
sitting in the sun!
Have a great long weekend!
Don't ever let anything hold you back
from knowing that you are
And if you have people in your life or in blogland
that tell you otherwise, well then Thank your lucky stars
and leave them Behind!
Until next time,
