Reflections--Reasoning--002 “Do not take life too seriously.  You will never get out of it alive.”  (Elbert Hubbard)

Reality of life is very real for those of us battling COPD, asthma and other lung diseases and issues.

Reality (according to the dictionary) means – referring to ‘everything that actually does or could exist or happen in real life’.

I take this to also mean that means reality for you will be different from mine.

Everybody lives within the reality of their own travels and choices of life.

Granted our lives may intertwine (especially those of us who share a common battle with disease or illness), but even then the reality of the moment can differ, sometimes like night and day.

Some people have a reality of being busy all the time while others reality would include much time for leisure.

Some people see reality as living, working and surviving alongside earth itself and all that come with it – of course these people would most likely include who would be hunters, gardeners, etc.

Some people have a reality of just staying in survival mode due to illness, hardship or just plain a travel in life that went down a bumpy, bad road.

Some realities can be stretches of what really may have happened or is happening, while the realities for others can even be just imagined within the mind.

What would be your reality for today?

Do you understand how you got to that point or style of reality?

As for me, my reality is having a daily routine that includes securing a longer future while battling heart and lung issues.

This means that my reality of everything that actually does or could exist or happen in my life is geared in some way around my battle with COPD and some heart issues.

My reality is doing whatever is necessary, such as walking or using an exercise bike, each day to secure a longer term of living with lung and heart issues.

Those who battle a disease involving health know what their reality is all about and most can and do find a firm grip on their reality.

But with everyone having a different point of reference for their outlook of reality, what does become obvious is that we all need to work more at ‘walking in another’s shoes’ while testing their reality before challenging, criticizing or correcting another’s outlook of daily reality.

For today understand – your reality is yours and yours alone.

Remember always that without breathing, a person is without life itself.

A personal reminder from ‘Wheezing Away’ – if you or anyone you know have any symptoms involving lung and breathing functionality, and they linger over and over while disrupting a lifestyle – then please ask questions and get it checked out.

With that I bid to all – smiles, prayers, blessings and steady breathing – Mr. William.
