We Can Bloom in Difficult Spaces

September 24, 2015 | 2 Comments

Yesterday was a good day. My husband is home, taking a week off between work trips. We drove to Mount Evans and hiked the final trail- from the parking lot to the 14, 258 ft. summit. I am so pleased we were able to do this! We went slow and took lots of breaks, dealing with tendonitis, neural tension, and a thin atmosphere. We made it to the top of the world! What a treasured time.

The tundra is fierce, but I saw beautiful flowers nestled into seemingly uninhabitable spaces. I thought of living life with a list of chronic illnesses and a trauma brain. Some of us are flung-out on our own unforgiving landscapes. The wind blows cold and the sun blisters. The best shelter we find is itself, eroded. But our roots go deep, and we are grounded despite loose soil. We spread our wings, with their withered tips. We endure. And we bloom.

Take comfort today in your ability to cope. Your resilience stands out- scarlet against a bleary backdrop. Look at you cling. Look at you thrive. Keep on.

      Thank you! <3 I am grateful it was a lower pain and higher mobility day so we could get all the way to the top, and I was also glad to see ramps and accessible bathrooms and such up there. What an accommodating place, except for the no oxygen thing! 😉
