healing with joy

Yesterday was two weeks since my unexpected and somewhat urgent surgery for the sinus infection that has been kicking my ass since early April.

I feel a lot like a wobbly new giraffe.

Getting my strength back will take some time. Full health and vitality – I’m looking forward to feeling that again, to saying YES again.

I’m emerging from my recovery cocoon. Catching up on what’s been happening in the world in the last few weeks has had mixed results for me – it’s not all awesome, but there is still so much to be grateful for.

Such as this video, shared via Brené Brown.

It makes me cry with happiness and joy – which I think is rather the point

It feels healing.

What helps you heal?

      Thank you, Karen. Re-entry seems to be slow, and non-linear. I have big plans that I need to temper with patience for my recovery. (Patience is hard.) Still, I am getting stronger, and I am so grateful for this. And there is beauty in the world…

    Wow–what an inspirational video. Thanks for sharing. Brought me to tears, too. Glad to see you’re back; working with accepting all that is life (the good, bad, blah, sad, difficult). Take very good care.

      Thank you, Joy. I’m slowly getting better, walking each day, breathing better, and feeling stronger. I bought a bouquet of dahlias from a neighbour’s garden stand. It’s the little things, you know? xo
