Falling Into Place

If you read my post ranting about positivity and positive thinking, you probably know I’m not into inspirational stuff and stories that make it sound like it’s really easy to overcome our limitations and all adversity – and if you can’t do it yourself then you’re not worthy of any support or admiration at all no matter how hard you’re struggling.

That’s the reason I enjoyed this Huffington Post article so much. It’s about a series of self-portraits called Falling Into Place by Patricia Lay-Dorsey, who’s been diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis. It’s raw, it’s symbolic, not always pretty, but it’s interesting because it shows people those uncomfortable things many of us wish not to see or think about. It isn’t about self-pity and it isn’t about fake positivity. It’s life as it is, as some of us know it.
