Bethanyism #21

Happy Monday!!!

And Happy Memorial Day!

Today I'm spending out in the woods with my dog and my good friend, Timmy, in memory of a birthday that won't be celebrated today, but I have a new Bethanyism for you to ponder for the week.

For those new readers, you can read this post for the explanation on what a Bethanyism is. I post a new one every Monday with the hope that they will inspire, make you think or spark some creativity, either in myself or others.

life asked death, "Why do people love me but hate you?" death responded, "Because you are a beautiful lie and I am a painful truth."

Today would have been Matthew's 31st birthday, and with this milestone approaching I have been thinking a lot about life and death and the beauty of both.  

I don't necessarily see life as a lie. It's a possibility. It's a dream. It can be whatever you want it to be, make it whatever you decide you want it to be. It can be a lie, it can be perfect, it can be broken, it can be wasted, it can be fulfilling. 

But in the end, death is the painful truth. Everyone dies. It's concept that humans have been fighting since the beginning of time. We struggle to explain it to children, because even as adults, we struggle to explain it to ourselves. I honestly believe that only in death, can you know the truth. 

What do you think about this week's quote? 

Love it? 

Hate it?

  2. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.

    But in all, I think Dr Akhere Itua is the ultimate solution to herpes virus, cold sore both for children and adults, I came across a post on google on how Hsv 1 & 2 was Cured by Dr Akhere Itua so I coped his webpage and Dm him immediately he respond and after our conversation, he sent me some herbal soap and medicine which I make used of as Instructed since November 13 till this now no more herpes virus, I have done several test and still negative.
