Insight of the Day

People hear and say the seemingly hackneyed phrase “we all die alone.” However, how many people really LIVE by this knowledge? How many people do you know who can spend a day alone with themselves in a room with no distractions and come out feeling happiness and not utter relief to be away from themselves being ALONE with their thoughts? I don’t know that I know many people or have known many people who wouldn’t go crazy in that empty room; I don’t know how many people I know who can genuinely spend time with themselves and their own thoughts without needing NOISE or other distractions. If I had to guess, I would say I might be lucky ever to have know a few – and these days, given my medical needs, I am not one of those few (I used to be, however).

So my “insight of the day” is just that – that WE need to recognize that we are really as alone in life as we are (to our knowledge) in death. I have a lot to say regarding that, but I want to keep this short. I just want to say that no matter who you are and no matter what you have suffered from or through and no matter how isolated you have become or have been made to be, just know that you are ENOUGH because we are ALL all we really have. Other people might have people all around them all the time, but what does that REALLY mean? It is good to have others around; it is good to have true friends and TRUE loves – but please don’t compare (as I talked about in my last post here). Please know that WHATEVER WE DO IN LIFE, WE ARE ESSENTIALLY JUST HOLDING THE HANDS OF OTHERS WHILE WAITING. What we DO while we wait is what is important. And that we REALLY hold the hands of others while they wait as well.

My heart is ALWAYS with YOU.

❤ Always, Beth
