Where there is pain, there will be strength. Where there is sadness, there will be wisdom. And where there is fear, there will be renewal.

Those are the words that came over in a motivational email I subscribe to.  Odd how the universe magically works as those words were exactly what I needed to hear.  Feels like there is so much I'm struggling to make sense of right now, but none more so than this persistent dizziness and accompanying symptoms.

This particular flare up has been lingering in way that is wearing me down.  Feel like I'm missing out on fully living life, doing the things I really want to be doing.  

Truth is I'm an adventurer, who loves to travel, be outdoors, likes to always be doing something but the dizziness has interfered so much over the years causing that side of me to become rather dormant.  
Before the dizziness issues, and before the man I lead a completely different life.  I rarely watched tv, was too busy out doing stuff.  The road trips I used to go on were some of the best times ever, cross country trips always made me feel so alive.  All the places I lived taught me so much.  I miss the wanderlust of those days. The new adventures and all the fun. Even when I was home spent most of that free time adsorbed in books and trying to fill my mind with wisdom. Now I can barely read due to the dizziness.

So when I sit on the couch resting now because my head feels like it's going to explode with pressure and dizziness think to myself what a far cry from those good ole days.  Even makes me laugh as the man would have never been able to keep up with me back then.  

It's amazing how quickly life can change though.  How we all take for granted the good days, worrying about trivial stuff instead of just enjoying those moments for the gifts they are.  Fact is no one truly understands how good they have it until they don't have it anymore. 

Like those words I received earlier we some how need to focus on the good in the midst of the bad. Of course it's easier said than done but most things are.  So today I ask and pray for those very things strength, wisdom, renewal and health.
