I am in treacle and that’s not a good thing. I am trying to stride through life, I am trying to maintain momentum. But I realise I have to, and I mean HAVE to, pare it down, strip it out and get back to my core. Back to the most important things in my life….family and art. That’s it. So although I have done a LOT of decluttering and reorganising recently I still have a way to go and I have to re-examine what I spend my time on.
I am also taking part in a pilot online self management programme for Parkinsons’ uk which I will update you guys on as soon as possible. It’s great though and has shown me how rich and varied my life and experiences can continue to be. New spins on old thoughts and shared experiences are challenging my assumptions.
Put these two shake ups in my life at the same time and you have a chaotic mix, throwing me around but, hopefully, leaving me at rest in a better place. I’m still slewing aroundbut am trying to get my new bearings and they are falling into place.
Life is so valuable and rare, I want to grab it even harder but the skill I have to learn is how to embrace it without taking in too much. And how to remember to take my meds. Important one, that.
