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?

  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!
