Joining in with FMF: this week’s word Cheer.
Even when we’re healthy but life is bleak, there’s always still plenty to cheer about, I’ve found. Always plenty to be thankful for, always plenty of blessings to bathe in, to sooth our soul. When we stop, take store and count these blessings, it cheers our soul, breathes new life in to us, allows us to continue on. Not necessarily at full strength but onwards and, sometimes, onward – however slowly – is the only best we can muster.
Sometimes, in these moments, stopping to take stock of where we’ve been, what we’ve come through, can offer a blessing in itself. We can find strength from seeing how much strength we’ve had, how far we’ve come and what darkness we’ve surpassed.
Sometimes a silent cheer for oneself is a very good thing.
P.S. Am feeling maybe slightly better, after my fall, and hope to be back blogging shortly…the Contentment guest posts will definitely start up from Wednesday, and sincerest apologies to all those who sent a post through and have had to wait for it to appear 😦
