Amanda Wilson


So today’s been the first day I’ve actually been able to focus, to think, to write.

I’m generally very aware anyway, it’s just who I am, but lying here sick gradually returning to normal makes you realise that some people never return. Some people never get well. Some peoples lives are just pain.

I actually do have a condition that ensures you endure daily pain. How I deal with it? Positively. My condition is not life threatening. It’s not debilitating. It’s become part of who I am. I don’t moan about it or complain about it because you know what? I’m lucky. I’m lucky that this is all that’s affecting me right now. A little pain.

This week I’ve been fighting infection, a fight I am only just getting on the right side of. It’s been awful (and I have pretty high pain threshold). I’ve felt so sick, weak and disorientated, worse than I’ve ever felt before. But I’m winning, and so many don’t. It makes me sad.

Live your days. Enjoy your lives. Wake up and feel grateful. After all there is so much beauty in our world, love in our hearts and people in our lives.

Live happy. 😀

Enjoy the journey.

Enjoy the journey.
