"The thing we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down." ~Mary Pickford
Do not let your pain, discomfort, frustrations, and sadness have power over you.
You ARE allowed to fall down. You ARE allowed to feel the emotional and physical pain and turmoil of dis-ease. It is real. And it feels crappy.
So...while you're down there acknowledging your reality, with your forehead to the floor, reach out your hand, whisper a name.
There are those who love you and want to see you thrive,
who will gently lead you back up.
And if by chance they aren't there when you're ready,
Take a breath, call upon your Higher Power &/or your Deep Inner Wisdom,
and remind yourself how deserving you are of healing, of love,
and of a beautiful life.
Remember...You are So SO Very Loved.
