DAY158

I am still here

When my body says enough is enough

When my mind starts to demand some peace

When I am emotionally overwhelmed

I am still here

When my joy wants to desert me

When I feel downhearted and truly uninspired

When I can´t bring myself to start a new project

I am still here

When my fondest wishes seem to fade away

And I don´t even have the strength enough to add adjectives to my life, in order to portray my experiences, attitudes and behaviors... or to start to change things

I am still here growing and evolving regardless the outer incidents

Just because, my external circumstances, what happens to me, my feelings and thoughts are not what I am

I like knowing that my hurting body is not who I am...I am much more than that.

my goodness. this is beautiful, both the photo and the words. as a chronic depressive and someone with acute anxiety your words are so powerful to me. i have just recovered from yet another nervous breakdown and i really must distance myself from that ill body - i am so much more. thank you

Wow - honest, raw and very powerful. Your photo marries with your words brilliantly. And your words speak a truth that will resonate strongly with so many people, including myself. xo
