Last month, my friend and fellow blogger Curry N Code from blog site Life Less Ordinary, published a post that resonated with me.
That post ‘Be Not Provoked‘, was about not being provoked to anger. Please, if you have the time – click the above link to read this beneficial post.
That post spoke to me and is an excellent reminder for me of what I am not doing. A reminder of what I should be doing. You know what is going on in my life right now, I am dealing with cancer and currently going through another round of chemotherapy. This dealing with cancer started 20 months ago and has been on going non-stop.
There is the body pain, many different body pains I have experienced over these 20 months and I allow that body pain to affect my mood and to affect me.
I am opposite of what my friend Curry N Code writes in the post I mentioned. I am ashamed to admit it – I call myself weak – I allow my body pain to dictate my mind.
I have written about this before. I allow my body pain to dictate my moods, my mind, me. It seems to me, I use my body pain as an excuse to be provoked to anger. I use my body pain as an excuse to lose hope and love.
I am not necessarily a religious person, though at times in my life I have been.
I am a work in progress and no matter what body pain I am experiencing, I need to remind myself to not be provoked to anger. I need to remind myself to always be patient, to be forgiving and to display love.
I receive much support and encouragement from comments that are left on my posts that help me a great deal.
I receive much inspiration from other’s posts which also help me a great deal.
Thank you Curry N Code and others who publish posts that resonate with me.
I may not always leave a comment, but many of your posts touch me and inspire me.
