One of the gifts that I have received recently is the gift of trust. Trust in life. To me, this does not mean trusting that everything will work out fine, or come out ok. It means that I am learning to trust that whatever happens, I will be ok--life will go on. It may sound confusing, but this includes knowing that I will be ok, even if I am not ok. Despite serious, life-threatening illness and other challenging circumstances being faced by my loved ones, I do my best to allow myself to experience these difficulties as part of life. If I wait for my problems and painful feelings to cease, in order to engage fully in life, and enjoy life, I will miss a lot of living. I do my best to live fully and embrace all of life.
