Bright Spark In A Dark Place

I am in between health right now. At the moment I am battling brain fog and nausea so it’s a bit difficult for me to write coherently. I’ll be undergoing therapy the next few months and I look forward to getting better. :) The key for me now is to find things to be thankful for and concentrate on them:

  1. My sense of humour is still intact – it’s wearing thick steel underpants!
  2. I have the love and support from family and friends (offline and online) to keep me going.
  3. I have developed a stronger sense of appreciation for good times and good health.
  4. I’ve not lost the drive to draw. :)

as one who lives with (minor but constant) disability, your four points are all taken to heart. and i agree completely with their necessity. tho those thick steel underpants are a bit tricky to navigate when i HAVE TO GO NOW!

Thanks for your comment Stephen! That last sentence made me laugh so hard! :D

Here's an odd little thought that popped into my head looking at your elegant ring: all good things must come to an end, but so must all bad things. The key is remembering that, when good things come to an end, we have happy memories, and when bad things come to an end we can be happy that they're behind us. And whatever you do don't let those steel underpants get rusty.

Christopher - We tend to forget on the fleetingness of all things, both good and bad. One great thing about having a personal blog is I have happy posts to go back to when I feeling down and the bad-day posts to remind me to never take for granted the good days. :) And of course, I also get to enjoy comments reminding me to oil my funny pants :D

I have a feeling my mind won't ooze any bit of originality now, and yet I'll say our life is the moments - good and not so good, and the moments don't last. Everything happens for a reason; dealing with life issues we get to know the world and our own true colours too. Long live steel funny underpants! :)

[...] tip in keeping an open mind is that you probably think many things are true that are not. Strive to see things the way others [...]

A sense of humour is important! I hope the therapy helps.
