Today is Day 2 of Wego’s National Health Blog Post Month. There are two prompts to choose from each day. One was to write about the weirdest thing about your health. Right now everything seems weird. After yesterday’s long heartfelt and emotionally exhausting post, I decided to go with the second prompt. Find a quote and use it as inspiration.
The quote above, from Gibran, “When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” is exactly what I am going through these days. I am sadly missing the people in my life who I loved and I am sad that I have similar troubles with my health that they had. I am looking again at my sadness and hoping for a silver lining. There are some hopeful things that I can gain from this experience.
One. I loved them. They loved me. Everyone should be so lucky to have experienced that kind of love.
Two. I have their experiences to learn from. I will honor them and try not to make the mistakes they may have made.
Three. I have knowledge, strength, and support that will help me through this.
I urge you to look again in your heart. What makes you sad? Could it be that you are longing for the thing that once made you happy. Perhaps knowing that you were once happy is not enough. Make yourself happy again. At least now you know what you are missing.
