V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #54: Subtle

Subtle is:

1. not loud, bright, noticeable, or obvious in any way;

2. small but important;

3. achieved in a quiet way that does not attract attention to itself and is therefore good or clever.

Cambridge English Dictionary

Subtlety is not my strong suit. I am outspoken, exuberant, and often joke that I have to be hit over the head before I catch on when the universe is trying to tell me something.

A trip to the doctor this week has uncovered yet another infection, and a need for me to recognize my disease is relapsing. I have not been paying attention to the subtle signs my body has been offering.

So…I need to take a giant step back, cull my activities and focus on regaining balance. In other words, start listening to my body more.

Won’t you join me this week in honouring the subtle, however that has meaning for you?

Look forward to your responses.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  2. Can you refer me to a post that maybe describes what you are dealing with health-wise. Maybe others already know. Or maybe you don’t actually share that.

    Anyway, it all sounds familiar so I’m sending love and light.

    Subtle, indeed….
