What the heck exactly is Lungleaving Day? Yeah I wondered too when I received her email the other day.
Then I clicked on the link to her blog and I understood her inspiration: It’s LIFE, and a releasing of your FEARS, and her reason behind this holiday and ritual she created.
Her name is Heather Von St. James, she is a cancer survivor. She recently landed on Share Your Love Story and was inspired by it, so she sent me a lovely email and shared her story.
Life IS indeed the love story.
It’s the reason behind my platform for Share Your Love Story, so that we might all connect through both happy times AND life’s challenges.
I’d like to connect you with Heather, and her story….click here
Don’t give up. Not today.
You’ve had a setback, it hasn’t happened yet. Someone disappointed you.
I know how one step forward, two steps back made me feel like surely I was doing something wrong or the very things I wanted would have come into fruition. But they didn’t, and life felt frustrating, even sad at times.
I often thought, “Why bother??”
But if there is something that you want, an experience you want to have, THAT person in your life,….Don’t give up. Not today.
I found an old journal of mine and picked a random page to turn to. It was filled with these very doubts; doubts that nothing was working. Released on that page were my frustrations, sadness, and fears.
But I did not give up, not that day.
I accepted my doubts, sadness, and disappointments, but they did not rule me. I searched for a sign, the tiniest of signs of encouragement. And when I was open to see it, I did.
My sign, not to give up. So I didn’t. And life changed for the better.
With Love and Fireworks,
