I hope I am not overstepping boundaries. The words below were a response to a blog post. After a quick search to see if the author had posted these thoughts on the forum turned up no results, I wanted to repost. Seldom do I get to the blogs, and I don't know if I am the only one, but assume there are others who also do not visit that portion of this board. These words should not be "lost" or buried on a blog response. I was reminded of a magnet on my refrigerator: "Today is the tomorrow I worried about yesterday." These words sit on my refrigerator because I need to work on this. Here is the response on the blog. The wise woman???? Victoria. She replies to Spitfire's blog Well said my friend. Great Blog. Spitfire in name & Spitfire in Life. We spend so much time in our lives looking for happiness or health, career or financial security. When it all boils down to it, living in the moment & letting life be as it is, is far more precious. In 20,30 or 40 years from now, when you look back on life (chronic pain, fatigue & illness), what will you remember? Hopefully, you will remember the laughs, friends & good times (even if they only live in this virtual life on the internet). For it's the journey that brings memories & joy, the special moments of sharing our experiences, not the never ending wishes for the future (that may never come). If one day, you regain good health & the opportunity to live your life more fully, enjoy that too (if & when it comes). But if you spend all your days wishing for tomorrow, one day you will wake up & find tomorrow is in the past and you missed every second of it's existence.
