“You feel fine, and then, when your body can’t keep fighting, you don’t.”
~ Nicholas Sparks, A Walk to Remember
“By morning I was worn out. My limbs felt heavy as wood, my head cottony. I might’ve felt better if I hadn’t slept at all.”
~ Ransom Riggs, Hollow City
I don’t talk about it much but in my adult life I’ve rarely been without physical pain. I tough it out, I push through, I don’t give in, I carry on. I choose to be stronger than the pain and most of the time I am.
Still, it takes a toll sometimes.
Feeling weary. Too many restless nights lately where pain disturbs my sleep. The dark and moody images we’ve been photographing reflective of my state this morning.
Still, there’s beauty to be found in the darkness. There are blessings to be had and much to be thankful for.
It’s Monday. New week. Fresh start. Things to do. Let’s go.
