JusJoJan Spoonie Sunday – Intentions

Today’s Just Jot It January prompt was generously supplied by Faye, of Faye’s Mystical Musings. Thank you Faye!

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 5th, 2020, is “intention.” Use the word “intention” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Excellent prompt for today, which is also Spoonie Sunday here at Wide Eyed Wandering Spoonie.

Spoonie Intentions

My life is basically a series of problematic symptoms like pain and fatigue, coupled with personality flaws, seasoned with laughter and occasional hysteria; all stitched together with good intentions.

Every morning is filled with intentions and a to do list. Now in all fairness, mostly that “to do” list doesn’t get “to done.” Sometimes the fatigue and pain are so bad that all I can manage that day is to breathe, and believe me that’s enough. Because I intend to do better tomorrow. This year I have implemented the “Five Things I Foolishly Hope to Accomplish Today” list instead. I’ve limited my “to do” to five actions. And I often don’t even get those five things done, that’s OK.

Every day I intend to live a life of courage and mostly I do.

Don’t let anyone tell you that it’s not brave
putting your feet on the cold floor
beneath your bed each morning.

Don’t let them tell you it’s not valiant
getting up, getting dressed and looking the best
you can day after day

Don’t let them tell you you’re not an intrepid adventurer
for stepping outside your door or your comfort zone
and facing the world one more time

And don’t let anyone tell you it’s not an act of courage
closing your eyes every night

Til next time ~If all you do today is breathe, that’s OK ~JPP

  1. As a Spoonie myself, I feel this in my core.

    Granted, most days, I find that I am have limitless spoons, however depression rears its ugly head, and there are days I am left incapacitated. It is a good reminder that sometimes, our intention to “do” doesn’t need to move to the “done” column.

    1. Oh yes please do. It’s so hard when we fight pain and fatigue for weeks and do fine against impossible odds. Then for some unknown reason, the disease just “breaks” us. And then we beat ourselves with a 2X4 for being “weak”. No Spoonie should ever forget how brave it is to crack open your eyes every morning. 😉
