Fighting The War

Writing for me is mostly cathartic – a way to heal and reflect and move on. But today, I can’t put together any words that resolve my angst, worry or pain. This human condition we face lends itself to negativity and loneliness and aching. And some days, you just can’t put a spin on that. It seems it is time to get back to basics. I have clothing, food, shelter, and clean water, which automatically puts me at a serious advantage over most people in the world. Yet, I have the audacity to want more. It is programmed into us to move past the physical and to the spiritual, to seek enlightenment where we can find it. We each have our own path and our creator beckons us on it. So while I face these temporary distractions of the physical, I look up and seek the divine in gratitude:

  • Impossibly orange, yellow, sunny day
  • My favorite yogurt with lunch
  • Soft, furry boots

I continue to do what I don’t want to do and fight the war within myself, but when I give thanks, I return to the center.


Hi! I'm Jennifer. I'm here in my little corner of southeastern Michigan observing relationships, family, and the world hoping to dig deeper and find the divine spark in it all. Thanks for visiting!
