Surrender - #atozchallenge

Happy Earth Day! I took this shot a few autumns ago. It was a beautiful day, I looked up, saw all this color and was swept away in the moment. I can't imagine what I/we would do without Mother Nature's inspiration.

Do you think you can give in without giving up? Surrender and still conquer?

I saw my Neurologist today. I'm still, after 7 years, not surrendering....not quite accepting. Fighting something can be a good thing but it also can work against you. If you spend all your energy fighting/focused on the wrong thing that leaves no energy for the good/right stuff. I know all this but it's still such a dance to find the balance. The trees surrender to the cold season and still come back strong each spring. I need to follow their lead. :-)

Today I'm so grateful for my awesome doctors that see beyond Dystonia and see a person as a whole. Also....for lovely Mother Nature! How about you? What are you grateful for today?


  1. Focus on the positive! Like this awesome shot. Very beautiful.

  2. Happy Earth Day! Beautiful shot. And keep fighting for that balance. :)

  3. Yes I think you can give in without giving up and happy earth day to you although I have never heard of earth day till now

  4. I am grateful to know a lovely, talented young woman with the courage to live her life to the fullest despite the difficulties that she faces every day.

  5. Great shot, and you're right about balance - the fight is important, but needs that wider context to have true value.

  6. I've spent a good chunk of my life fighting things I can't change. Instead I'm now focused on the positive, the people that inspire me, the people that love me and knowing I'm enough.
    Great post T!


Comments brighten my day!!
