Resilience In My Fingertips
During those tough times, and even now when the flickers of sorrow occasionally return, I’ve sought solace in things that rekindle that warmth in my heart. You know, those favorite hobbies or cherished people who can make your heart flutter with happiness. I’m talking about my love for gardening, the feel of rich soil on my hands, the serene rhythm of planting and nurturing life, the joy of seeing a tiny seed grow into a blooming plant. It’s about those quiet evenings when I lose myself in the world of writing, crafting narratives, and expressing my emotions through words.
And then there are the invigorating walks, my faithful dogs by my side, their tails wagging with every step. The simple act of reading, of diving into another world, getting lost and found in someone else’s story. The therapeutic nature of drawing, the creativity flowing from my heart, through my hands, onto the canvas. And the joy of redecorating, transforming a space, making it my own.
Each of these activities required a different part of me. Some needed my nurturing spirit, others my creativity, and a few my physical energy. But they all shared one thing in common – they required my presence, my active participation in the moment.
These projects, be it decorating, crafting, or gardening, had another benefit. They allowed me to plan and look forward to something. In the midst of the turmoil, they provided a sense of purpose, a goal to work towards. They were islands of stability in the sea of uncertainty.
And by spending time doing these things, I found myself reconnecting with the joy that was buried deep within. It was like brushing off the dust from an old, forgotten treasure, one which was there all along, waiting to be rediscovered.
Focusing on these positive moments, these sparks of joy, served as gentle reminders that there was still goodness in the world, even when I was going through the wringer. They reminded me that life, with all its ups and downs, still had the capacity to surprise, delight, and heal me. And that was an invaluable lesson.
