It's again - meditation, thinking about all miraculous things that happened to me, like surviving a cancer, surviving a heart attack – just surviving! Although my Art career is at the dead end, I continuing to paint and write; I teach art and support myself. Eventually, with my career I’ll be back on track.
I listen to the Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto #1. The music also can affect your state of mind and often to the worth – Shopen, Beethoven. Tchaikovsky, on the contrary, helps to grow wings…
Sometimes it takes me half a day to overcome the mood.
Loving acts of kindness, meditation, music, writing and gratitude keep me going during a tough day. I am part of a community with individuals that even the most mundane acts - like getting up, brushing your hair and your teeth, getting dressed are difficult due to pain and fatigue. But I am always amazed by the sheer strength, creativity and resilience they all have. I usually reach out to these special individuals for additional support. It helps also that I do have a loving husband who motivates me to re-claim my groove.
Exercise always gets me through a tough time. Giving thanks for and embracing the adversity and the people or situation that will most likely give me a nugget of higher understanding and will teach me something. Taking my mind off of my challenges and being in service to somone or something else also helps me put things in perspective. Finally, things just are - so I try not to attach a good or bad lable to situations.
