The gift of life

As someone who has lived with pretty intense Complex PTSD for a long time I know its not easy to be able to say this life we have been given is a gift with all the trauma we endure, but I just read a post about someone who lost their Mom and when I checked the last line her mother was born in 1964, just a year after me.   I thought then how lucky I am to be alive now, after my brush with breast cancer last year, her post reminded me what a gift life is even with all of its trials and tribulations.

That said I have had good therapy and more support in later years than earlier ones, so I know others labour under so many disadvantages I don’t have and life can feel so bleak some days.  Its hard to be told when we are suffering that we are still surrounded with gifts even if its just sunshine, a roof over our heads or the care of one person and some people may have none of these things, and find themselves in a dark place despite them.

These things don’t certainly take away any pain we feel but still life is a gift and sometimes it contains hard parts.  For this afternoon I am so grateful for the gift of life and for the positive love blogging and WordPress has brought into my life over the past 4 years.  I can never say thank you or I am grateful enough.

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
