Now, Right Now

It’s hard — so hard. When you fear your world is about to turn upside-down, and there’s nothing you can do but pray and wait. When you think perhaps the inevitable is happening now.

Originally posted on myjourneysinsight: Writing from my heart has led me to so many wonderful connections. Two months ago, I had the amazing opportunity to share my story. I was “discovered” by Remedy Health Media because of my inspirational writing about dealing with my dry eye syndrome. I shared the experience of being filmed on the first part of this story: #526 I…
