Did you know I danced?




It's been a few months since I wrote something...time seems to slip past me faster and faster these days. I really didn't mean to not write anything for that long, I just got busy worrying with other things I guess.

So, for my facebook friend who discovered my blog and messaged me to let me know that something I had written had touched him in a visceral way, Thank You, you reminded me that I should make time to share.

It is hard when you are struggling with the day to day stresses of life sometimes to remember that you have something to give back to the world. It is all to easy to get wrapped up in the struggles and forget that you weren't always old, and poor, and in pain. It is all too easy to forget that even though you are old and poor and in pain you still matter, you can still touch someone else's life. 

So, I can't promise to be upbeat all of the time. 

I can't say I won't continue to worry about the problems--like being out of money too soon this month and stressing about it.

I can say, that for today I will try to remember that there was a time in my life when I danced. I will try to remember that while I can't dance like I used to, maybe I am still dancing in new ways. 

I am stressed--I am also extremely blessed. 

I am multi-faceted that way.

So, thank you facebook friend for the reminder that I have something to give, it is all too easy to feel useless, and we all need to be reminded that we aren't.

Peace and blessings,
EB
