I have mentioned that this is a blog site for Southwest MT Pain Mgt, Inc., a nonprofit. I am the owner/manager. What do most of my topics have to do with chronic pain/illness? Well, I found, in my own struggle with chronic pain, that working on my inner life improved my psychological/physical situation immeasurably. I did not get rid of, nor lessen, the pain, but I improved my strength, psychologically and physically. And, I believe I became a better friend (to myself and others), wife and mother in the process. I have a better life, with happiness that is not dependent on circumstances.
Mental discipline, through meditation, is a great skill for me. Each and every day, I have my practice and it gives me strength and energy. I don’t worry about what may come. I’m ready. I don’t feel as attached to the outcome of things, either. I do my best, and know that whatever comes of that, I will go on and do my best in the next thing.
I want to be the ‘word photographer’, that’s my goal with this blog. To give a snapshot of a thought, idea, concept. . . tangent (lol) that may make someone think and follow those thoughts to what will be useful for them. Blogging creates that possibility of community. Read something here that causes you to think, go on to other blogs that offer the science, the structure, the skills needed to accomplish what is helpful to you. That’s my hope. It sure is out there. There are some terrific blogs. May I be a stepping stone.
Thanks for stopping by. Lilie
