Pick Me Up and WQWWC #25 Healing

Here is my entry for Marsha’s WQWWC (Writer’s Quotes Wednesday) #25.

As many of you know, both Chris and I have been battling Covid Long Haulers since we got covid the end of September. We are ever so slowly healing from it. We have had to learn to be patient and gentle with ourselves.

I made this poster a few years ago. Chris captured this photo on a day I was feeling frustrated and discouraged. I thought it is highly appropriate for people who are healing from any kind of loss or illness..

I’ve gathered a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

Qi (energy) hugs

  1. When I was seeing a therapist and she asked how I was I would always say: life is a gift, that’s why its called the present. She knew I felt the complete opposite and we laughed. I hope you’re doing better.


  2. Sending virtual hug! I don’t know how I could have missed the fact that you and your Chris are battling long-haul COVID.

    All my prayers and wishes for you and Chris!

    My 85-year-old mother got COVID. She is in the Philippines. She had to be in a COVID ward for a month. But she came home two weeks ago. She managed to beat the COVID.


  3. Cee, first I love the picture. Secondly, I suspect it took a lot to share your thoughts. You have a gift of being positive and loving to people who might need that special acceptance. It’s good to see that you even give that gift to yourself. Thanks for being part of so many blogging communities and especially Wednesday Quotes. It lifts me up to be a part of our blogging community, and you make it real for so many. 🙂


      • It is a hard lesson to learn. We are all hard on ourselves and the more we are, the harder others are on us. It’s like we beg to be abused.


        • The way I learned is knowing that I would never be that hard on anyone else. I won’t let other people berate themselves, so why should I do it to myself. Now I wish I could say I was perfect at it, but not even close. Just much better than I used to be 😀 😀

          • That’s a super improvement. I am too. I can accept compliments now without belittling or diminishing myself. I don’t beat myself up about making mistakes so much any more. Self image was probably my worst and I think I’m better with that, too. Lots of healing has taken place over the years. I think a couple of things help 1. a loving partner who doesn’t berate you. 2. developing skills.


    • I was actually able to go to different gardens (that has walking paths) and was able to walk and take photos. Much improvement over a month or so ago. 😀 😀

  4. Hi Cee, what a time you must have been through. From the corners of the blogging world I’m familiar with I’ve seen lots of encouraging posts and information for dealing with all things covid. I hope you’ve seen some of the same things as people can be so encouraging, not perfect, but honestly trying to lift one another.
    Hang in there. It sounds like you’re on a good path to full recovery.


    • Thanks Gary for stopping by. My blogging community has been a huge support. And yes, I’m slowly getting better and am now able to get out and about a little bit. Hooray!


  5. You have captured so much human emotion felt by so many from time to time in that one photograph. Thank you so much for sharing and for your inspirational words too.
    KL ❤


  6. I loved your quote Cee. It is so timely and appropriate. From the smallest thing to the largest, it’s a great reminder. Sometimes we just need to give ourselves grace, and as you said, be gentle.
