WEGO Health Activist Writers Challenge Day 21 (Adversity,bloomin flowers?)








This is the prompt for today “The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.” – Mulan True or false? When do you bloom best"

I will admit these last few prompts have been difficult, anxiety attack anyone? Am I a flower? Do I bloom? I think of a flower as being something pretty and delicate. I don't think that applies to me!  

I had to ignore my brain and look at the word adversity and go from there, if I hadn't this post would be blank! So let's think of what the "Adversity" caused by RA, Lupus, Sjogren's and Raynauds has done. It has made me stronger emotionally, I have more patience, I am calmer, (unless I'm writing posts like these.) I deal with most situations head on. I have learned how to stand up for myself and say no. 

When do I bloom best? I would say when I'm happy, when my pain is low, I'm not in a complete flare. Maybe I have slept the night before, there are no major stresses going on that day. Winter is over, I can take a walk, enjoy the warm weather. Everyone around me is calm, happy and healthy.

  2. You are delicate: that's why you suffer with the pain. You are pretty: I've seen your photos. You are also very strong: if you weren't, you wouldn't have survived all this pain, let alone remained sane and loving. So I vote that you are an alpine flower that faces a lot of adversity, is tiny and delicate, and often doesn't seem like it will bloom at all under all that snow and in all those rocks... but is also incredibly tenacious or it wouldn't be there at all.
