I work with a wonderful staff of people that truly understand what it is like to love someone in ill health. It has made us all very aware of the virtue of true health.
The awareness truly is a double edged sword rought with both pain and blessings.
It has protected and helped us all to have a stronger drive in several ways.
To help ourselves by giving us knowledge and know how to help ourselves heal. We have all worked diligently at improving ourselves. Each person I work with has revealed introspective moments and things they are actively working on. We are doing our best to be the best people we can be, and sometimes it is a huge challenge, and sometimes we all win one.
It has also helped us to learn how to help others find a healthier self. Because, then not only those we love, but even others we might not hold so close to our hearts, can benefit. We can help many people because of our pasts. At some point we all had watched the suffering of those we did love and didn’t know what to do. Sadly sometimes by the time we knew what to do, it was too late for the ones we loved, to benefit. And sometimes even if it wasn’t too late, we simply just knew they couldn’t or wouldn’t hear us no matter how hard we tried.
That only strengthens our resolve to keep helping people, and find ways around the obstacles in our path. We are all strong people bent on helping others avoid what was unavoidable for us. We had a great desire to help others find better in whatever way we could. Our diverse paths led to a fairly diverse way to learn those things, so a small clinic has a big impact on many lives.
Out of our childhood lack, we became adults bent on providing an abundance of helpful resources. We are abundant with helpful health advice from several angles, if you make the commitment to care for yourself we can all provide insights.
It’s why none of us really want to walk away from what we do. We have tough days and rough times that sometimes cast doubts, but at the end of it all is a knowing that we are helping many people which in turn helps the world.
My own health is still on unstable footing and it tries my patience often and frequently worries me, but I keep aiming for better because I know how much good my work is doing in this world. I simply wish I had a better balance to care for myself and my family properly, and I hope the divine will solve it all for me at some point. For now I keep reaching and doing my best, no matter what that means.
May you never know what it is like to love someone in ill health. May you always have the resources you need when you need them. May you find your own health and see how you are able to help others and contribute to bettering our world. May you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.
