Well played, mid year. That was quite the ambush. How’s everyone holding up so far? I genuinely hope that life has been good to you of late. Anyway let’s get down to it – time for the monthly linkup! Can’t wait to read what each and everyone of you will be up to in June, it’s one of the things I look forward to every month 🙂 I hope you have fun or benefit from it, too!
What It’s All About
It is a monthly get together for anyone with chronic illnesses. An opportunity to share, to listen, and to learn from one another. I also think it’s a great way to provide insight into life with chronic pain, from many different points of view. All you have to do is write a short excerpt for at least three of the listed prompts, and publish it on your blog. Then click on the blue ‘Add Link’ button below to add your blog entry here. Voilà, you’re now part of the party!
A Few Simple Rules:
- Only 1 link per website.
- Do comment on at least 2 other blog posts in this linkup if you participate. Helping to spread the word on your social media is always appreciated, but not required.
- This linkup starts on the 1st of every month. There will be 5 different prompts. It will close at the end of each month before midnight. All timings listed are in Singapore time (+8 GMT).
- Pick at least 3 of the prompts to write about. 5 is best, of course! 😉
- We also ask that you share this main link to at least one of your social media outlets within the same month.
- Failure to follow these rules might get you blacklisted from future linkups. Let’s keep it fair for all 🙂
Prompts for the Month
Life is truly a series of necessary or self-imposed repetition. We brush our teeth, have some lunch, take our medications. Sometimes it feels like I’m stuck in an endless loop, trapped by pain and fatigue. You could also repeat and build up good habits, or you might be repeating certain mantras to yourself daily. You might feel like you’re repeating yourself to your doctors to no avail, or that history keeps repeating itself despite your best efforts.
It’s a wide world, and there are many things to wonder about. Heck, it’s overwhelming even trying to understand what’s going on inside our very own bodies! You could also be wondering about an old friend, ex-lover, or what you’re going to meal prep for the rest of the month. You could be wondering about that new drug on the market, or what decisions to take next. The list of things to muse and wonder about is endless.
You could be turning a year older, or turning over a new leaf. You might be turning the keys to a new life or new home, or maybe just having trouble twisting those goddamn medicine bottles open. You might turn a blind eye to certain actions, or feel that society is doing that to you. You might be slowly turning blind, or maybe even experiencing a turn of good fortune.
As with last month’s prompt, ‘setting’, ‘getting’ is a real loose one. Have fun with it 🙂
Many of us desire for a better quality of life and to be healthy once more. It’s difficult to remember a time when all was well. You could also be desiring a new mobility aid, or to meet a person. You could be crying, singing, laughing to your heart’s desire, god knows that helps sometimes. You could be missing life itself, or maybe yearning to take a short holiday, or simply a break from it all.
