Wow the world looks different when you are sick, or hormonally off, or hurt. I have a cold, again, and everything I look at is overwhelming, and I respond in a negative way. Whereas usually, all I can see, is potential, grand visions, possibilities, love, beauty, and magic. Well that ain’t happening, not today.
Stuffy, sore, sick There is no way Spirit is glum Not today Look at that I can't imagine Create beauty? Not my passion Warm sunshine Garden of joy Looks quite dead Not to enjoy Break barriers Open doors Can't be strong Not for you or yours Less for me now I am not whole Must get better Not a negative soul
How to navigate your condition? I think you simply start with “less” if it is temporary. Knowing that everything will again shine with fairy dust, take a while to just rest. Rest and do less until better. Permanent maladies give perspective to me, a reason to feel grateful that this is just a cold and I will feel better soon.
Gosh those longer lasting or even permanent ailments and injuries, emotional and physical, really kick one’s butt. You can be hurt by someone or something for 10, 20, 50 years! Lose limbs or senses, try and adjust to that! Okay, things are not so bad. I just won’t conquer the world, not today.
