Recovery

imageWriting notes ~ shared with @dVerse #Open Link Night

Sometimes ~
We forget how far we have come
Over every ordinary obstacle
Through the muck of full-time living

Pulling ourselves out over & beyond
More than what we could have ever
Dreamed possible

Places uncomfortably discovered
When fragile changes into strength
Only in our recovery

  4. Strength, like beauty, is an inside job. Powerful bodies sometimes house tiny rodents, & weaker statures can be domicile for lions. Hindsight is 20/20, but regrets can lurk in the shadows of the past.

    1. Hi Glen!
      Nice to see you ~ thank you for stopping in. One truly never knows how one will respond to a crisis ~ and regrets of what was unsaid or not done seem to haunt us the longest.

  5. Sometimes we must be reminded of how far we have come, so that we can remember the road others may be on, right now. And that we can appreciate the journey as well.
