Slow down please…

You never dream that one day you would wake up sick and never get better, but it happens, obviously and to way too many people!

Luckily for some of those people they can manage it somehow and actually lead a pretty productive life with a some hiccups here and there! Sadly for others that don’t get that option as no matter what they try, it doesn’t help get them to even a somewhat decent functioning level. 

Quite often there are days where you get stuck in the “why is this happening phase” and that is all you can think about! Not a fun or good place to be, you can’t avoid going there all the time, but most of the time you can keep busy enough to keep you mind from going there.

Do you ever wonder if this is a way of telling us to slow down? We get so caught up in the normal we found in our  lives that we tend not to take time to appreciate everything that we have or the world around us! 2020 sure made us all slow down a bit and as messed up as the year was, it was still amazing to see what we really didn’t need to be doing and taking time to see all the beauty this world has to offer is good!

Do you wonder if getting sick was a way to tell you to step back and slow down. That you didn’t truly belong where you were in your life? Almost like you weren’t listening and there needed to be something big to make you step back! I know that it may seem a bit ridiculous, and it is kind of still thinking along the lines of “why is this happening”. I do tend to think more of what is the purpose of all this? What am I supposed to learn from all this? What is this supposed to teach me? How do I help people through this?

What are your thoughts, did this happen for a reason? Is there a purpose in all this? How do we help others with all these experiences?

What good will come from this? I have to believe there is a bigger purpose in all of this suffering, there just has to be!
