10 Important Life Lessons I Learned From Chronic Illness

10 Important Life Lessons learned from Chronic Illness, by Chronically Hopeful. A woman sits by the window, gazing out while holding a cup of tea. She has shoulder length hair and is smiling contemplatively.

Last year was a tough one for many of us, but looking back I ​realised that I have learned many important lessons which make me stronger and ​better equipped for the year ahead.

So although 2018 was a year of very high highs and very low lows​, there were many ​lessons scattered among both the trials and the triumphs. ​This is the way life goes - it is never linear and it's always changing - but we can always look back and learn something from what we have been through. 

Through the course of each year we ​will grow wiser, we ​will heal old wounds, we ​will get up and try again, but ​each time we will also be a little stronger.

Living with severe ME/cfs, Who am I now?

Who am I? it is important to reflect and decide who you are in life, your dreams and goals, your passion and purpose. But when you are diagnosed with a severe chronic illness it can become a bit blurry.

When you can no longer do the job or hobbies you used to do or think and learn and read the way you used to, it can seem like all those plans you had for your life are a distant memory, an impossibility...

God will give you the desires of your heart

God gives us the desires of our heart BLOG

This verse is often misinterpreted and then people are discouraged and think God doesn’t keep His word.

It’s not saying God is a genie and will grant all your wishes, whatever they are, we know that not everything we lust after in this life is in alignment with God’s will or even part of the path He would like us to be on. I know my own desires were far from godly before I gave my life to Christ and our flesh will always crave things that aren’t good for us.
