Truth part 3

Thank you for all your support these past few days. I am truly grateful. All my life I have been sensitive about my condition. I have tried to pray it away. For years. That is not the reality. I have begrudgingly acknowledge that to be understood, I will have to let people in to my world. I have resisted that for the most part. I’ve given faint glimpses. When I let the curtain open, I didn’t fully know what to expect. In real life I’m not the greatest communicator, because that’s what I have chosen for so long. I’m seeing that doesn’t work these days. So in order to be understood, I am trying to understand, myself. It’s a learning curve. Please bear with me. Thank you again for your love and support. I am truly grateful. Love to you all. 
On a brighter note:  What is making you smile today?

  1. You are brave and honest. That is important. And at least on the blog, always kind too. What is making me happy today? Seeing the sun shining and having a whole day ahead of me to do something I want to do. It's all about the little things, right? hugs-Erika

  7. In order to understand others, perhaps one must first understand oneself - that's a great truth!

  9. Dearest Regine,
    Are you ALONE, no partner...?
    You never write about anyone other than yourself so it is hard to determine that.
    For sure you are not alone in dealing with serious health issues but others, like myself, opt not to vent it. CKD stage 3b (due to my biking and being muscular) instead of stage 4 is not easy. Especially the sleeping is rough.
    Three of our immediate friends are dealign with CP, so we both are familiar with that.
    Aside from personal issues, I'm also the caregiver of my husband with his serious heart issues. We treasure each day as a new GIFT. Positive attitude helps a lot.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  13. Hugs.
    I share a lot of things on my blog - but rarely the trials and tribulations of my condition.
    This morning I am smiling because Jazz has agreed to take his tablet and it is raining. Soft, gentle rain.

  17. I read to catch up parts one and two. I appreciate your candidness, your non-faltering faith, and the truth of which you state. You're a warrior. You can deal with it all thru God. Even if there are questions of his life destiny for you, you find strength! That I admire.

  21. Little things, little things make me happy. Because someone who does not know how to enjoy the little things will not appreciate the big ones.
    Best regards 🙂.

    What making me smile today is seeing pictures of several friends new babies.

  27. Keeping you in my prayers daily. There is no need to pray a condition away - simply accept it and learn to live with it. It makes you who you are; not something to be ashamed of. Hugs.

  29. We are all struggling and there is no shame whatsoever in having a chronic condition and making the choices that is best for you. How can anyone judge you? We don't travel in your shoes. Know that there are a lot of wonderful readers out there who care for you. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

  30. Sunshine made me smile today.
    Sometimes it is hard to figure out what we should share and what to keep for ourselves.
    We learn about this, and other stuff, for as long as we live. Take care.

  31. I've found your posts inspirational, Regine. I hope sharing helps with coping with your condition. Happy Sunday! :)

  32. I think opening up is always a good way to go. Not all people are good at handling it, maybe they will inadvertently hurt you when you are open. But you have to live with that. Other people can deal with it and understand you better, respond better to you, give you support and strength.
    All the best from Austria

  36. Thank you for sharing. It makes us more vulnerable, but, sometimes, it is helpful to others as well as for ourselves.

    What's making me smile today is a new piece of furniture my daughter assembled and set up for me! It has made all the difference in one corner of the room that was so messy and an eyesore!

  37. Thank you for sharing.

    The grandchildren made me smile today when they were describing a wonderful walk in the woods they had enjoyed in the Autumn sunshine.

    Enjoy the rest of your day and my good wishes for the new week ahead.

    All the best Jan

  41. There is something that edges close to impossibility when we think about being vulnerable, but if we can allow ourselves to do that, we open ourselves to great love.

    Thank you for daring to be vulnerable and sharing with us. It helps us dare to do the same.

  43. I hadn't had a chance to catch up with your blog before. It must have taken a lot of courage for your to share your truth.. thank you for trusting us with it. And while all comments and all people are not always nice it is nonetheless very brave of you.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I truly appreciate your openness and honesty, Regine. We all have "something," some things more limiting or challenging than others. But unless we know what they are, how they affect a person, we will all remain unaware and ignorant. Thank you for the enlightenment.

  45. All the best for you.

  48. How brave you are to share some of your struggles, it gives your poems a new perspective. You must do the thing that is right for you.We spend everyday learning a little bit more about ourselves. I smiled when I saw the sun come up on my early morning walk xx
