  1. Sam’s post absolutely speaks to me, as I’m sure it does to others suffering from chronic illness, depression, disability, or grief. I feel like has shown a way to use the experiences we face daily to empower ourselves to be our true selves and acknowledge that there may be activities we can no longer perform – this is a part of accepting ourselves and maybe the reality of that moment., This is a scary proposition for those of us who have been brought up believing there are certain roles and duties we must fulfill. Coming out of the holiday season, I know I was challenged as a southern mama thinking about how to handle holiday events and dinners and where was the energy going to come from? This year I limited events I attended and scheduled rest times around events and asked for help from family. It was hard to admit I needed to do that, but once I did, it was a weight lifted, and it was freeing. I was able to do what brought me joy within my capabilities with the people who mattered. At its basic essence, isn’t that what life is about?

    1. Yes! That IS what life’s about! Pacing is not only saying no to things that will exhaust us, it is also about doing those things that absolutely bring us joy! This life is to be lived! I’m so glad your holidays were filled with joy! Southern Mama. I can’t imagine the pressure… Thank you ! 😊💫

    2. Gah! Yes, this Christmas season was about 30% of what it used to be but I had to make up for what I percieved as missing by putting my all into what I *could* make possible! And? We ended up being very home and family this season instead of running around to events or entertaining and it ended up being enjoyable in a whole new way than previous years!
