This morning I was reading Laurel’s latest blogpost and I was reminded about what I appreciate in my own life, my own ‘candles’, as she puts it. Whether or not we are ill, we all have difficult moments and setbacks in life. And taking a look at what we love dearly, enjoy doing or have fond memories of will put a smile on our face and help get us through challenging times.
The idea of fiddling with scissors and pictures for hours on end makes me want to break out in hives. That’s why I decided to put together a virtual collection of my pictures, videos, audio, and even text- a compilation of my life’s small and large candles. I won’t be needing any paper or glue or tiny bits and pieces that get lost and stuck to my elbow!
When I start feeling blue or disheartened about my condition (or about life in general), my virtual arsenal will help me focus on the things I appreciate and can do, instead of what I cannot do anymore.
Thanks Laurel! I needed that reminder.
What’s in your virtual arsenal?
