Lost Time Is a Lost Mind
Personal Perspective Creates the Illusion of Wasted Time
It is with great understanding that Lyme Disease has the inevitable power to instill a sense of wasted time within us. In reality this is untrue based on the simple claim of perspective. In fact the only time truly wasted is the time that is spent believing that the time spent on Lyme Disease is wasted.
Before Lyme Disease became an ominous force in one's life, there was plan. The plan incorporated aspirations that seemed to be all but untouchable. It became obvious one's guard was let down when an expected change of course entered your life.
Unwillingly you were forced to accept the blind fate that quickly reminded you how unprepared you were. Your life was subjugated by the relentless torment from the millions of lives of another. No longer would the future seem certain and secure as each approaching day yielded no answers. It became apparent that a direction never once conceived would be the only direction permissible to attain what one so dearly took for granted. The time spent adhering to this direction is believed by many to be a waste.
The truth is that the current course one has been destined to endure breeds no waste of time. For in every experience in our lives, whether the appropriate preparations have been taken or not, the chance to learn and become, always accompanies. Whether or not one can embrace this natural gift is reflected entirely on the perspective of the fight.
The time spent enduring Lyme Disease for many seems to be a waste. For it seems that all Lyme Disease has created is nothing but a damper on the aspirations of a former life. At the current moment it essentially has but there is another view in plain sight that is all but overlooked. How quickly we humans assume that time is wasted simply due to an unwelcome alteration to our lives. In doing so, we forget that in every experience in life we continue to learn whether we approve of the change or not. It essentially reminds us that we never really were in control of our destiny.
If we look with new eyes, the incomprehensible predicament teaches what life truly means to us. We come to learn the unfathomable strength that was never believed to exist within. The true determination that in the eyes of oppression we can once again rise above all that only intends to inflict harm and despair. As detrimental as the blows are, no limit or capacity of our ability to withstand their depth is ever made known. We blindly undertake the unforeseeable challenge with a mind, body and soul that have all but our deepest faith and trust resting upon them.
For this is just another challenge that bleeds no waste of time. One must change perspectives and embrace what can never be learned from any other experience in life. For when the dust settles, you will be endowed with a new understanding of the world and the best way to approach it. Your aspirations will come again one day but for now, one must not fight what can not be fought but fight for what always could be won.
