The daily dance with chronic illness 🙃.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Symptoms, payback, recovery, pre-emptive rest, therapeutic interventions, pep talks, patience, tasks of daily living, bigger plans, inspiration, hard things, uplifting things, self care, mistakes, small wins, ⁣⁣ ⁣ Keeping on the lookout for all the joys t o be found in the precious moments in the present, to top up our hearts so we can keep on dancing even when everything hurts and when so much is hard.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ What helps fill up your heart so you can keep on going when things are hard?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I recently shared another ebook Connecting with the Natural World. I have filled it up with lovely things you can turn to and deepen your links with the wider world even from your own home especially when things are hard. It is FREE💞 ⁣ Book link in bio or ask for it in the comments.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I've also been showing up and being a beginner on YouTube filming yoga videos the last 7 Thursdays. There are about 4.5 hours of videos so far. Even just have a listen sometime- there are two videos of me talking so it's not all yoga movement. There is chair yoga, bed yoga, floor yoga, gentle yoga, and movements for throughout the day to care for your body when you can't do much at once. YouTube link in bio or ask for it in the comments.⁣⁣ ⁣ I've been thinking a lot about being a beginner and how it takes courage and effort.⁣ When life is already hard it can be even more daunting to step up and learn something new and keep practicing and gaining experience while you get the hang of it and then longer to be kind of ok at it and then maybe later being quite good at it.⁣ I've really appreciated having some supporters as I start sharing on YouTube.⁣ ⁣ If you want to share something new you are learning or something you want to start learning I'd really love to follow along and encourage you on your beginners journey. ⁣ ⁣ Share the post if you think others will enjoy reading it too.⁣ ⁣ Lots of love and energy to you all⁣ I hope your body and mind are kind to you today⁣ 💛Claire xoxox
