Back on board

Two weeks ago I accidentally deleted my WordPress blog. All 79 posts were lost. Though I am disappointed to lose some of them, I know also that most of my entries, especially in the last couple of months, were just long moans about my physical pain and my frustration with life.

Everyone gets tired of that kind of moaning after a while, so I hope that there will be less whining and more positivity in this new blog. Though I am in constant pain, I’m trying to remember that life is worth celebrating. I just have to be more attuned to what is good and wholesome and to remember that there are people out there who love me more than I deserve.

  2. As a writer and fellow human being just want to say a big UGH over the loss of your 79 posts. Letting go of it, even if it was posts about your pain is still a tough loss. Good for you for logging back on and expressing resilience. To err is human to get back up is Divine.
