AWARE OF WHAT GIVES LIFE

I am celebrating my third anniversary of surviving a major accident. It was the second accident in two years, and there were many injuries. Though there is pain and though there are obstacles, I am so happy and grateful to be alive.

Yes, I did gain a lot of weight and become extremely deconditioned. Yes, I am in menopause, and it is difficult to rebuild my health. However, the problems are not the most important part of my life.

I am celebrating my third anniversary of surviving a major accident. It was the second accident in two years, and there were many injuries. Though there is pain and though there are obstacles, I am so happy and grateful to be alive.

Yes, I did gain a lot of weight and become extremely deconditioned. Yes, I am in menopause, and it is difficult to rebuild my health. However, the problems are not the most important part of my life.

The most important part of my recovery process is to steadily maintain my sense of the value of each choice and action along the way. Every moment I spend cultivating health is a moment of connection with what is most alive in me, and in all of us.

Thank you for walking with me.

Other Information:
As from a large heap of flowers many garlands and wreaths can be made, so by a mortal in this life there is much good work to be done.

The perfume of flowers goes not against the wind, not even the perfume of sandalwood, of rose-bay, or of jasmine; but the perfume of virtue travels against the wind and reaches unto the ends of the world.

There is the perfume of sandalwood, of rose-bay, of the blue lotus and jasmine; but far above the perfume of those flowers the perfume of virtue is supreme.

from the Dhammapada, Shakyamuni Buddha, Juan Mascaro translation

Thanks for your encouragement on my blog about rediscovering enjoyment for cooking.
I like your profile image...Kuan Yin (or Kannon), the Bodhisattva of Compassion, yes? Something we could all use a lot more of in our lives, and to extend to others as well.
May your journey be a good one and your health and wellness shine brightly.

Jane

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog about Houston, my son, and the Ronald McDonald House. It was very kind of you to say that I am a good mother. I don't know about that, really. In the situation I am in, the only thing to do is the best you can, one day at a time. There isn't any way to make it easy.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day!!
