Welcome to 2020
This is my monthly link up post where I join in with the lovely sheryl from A Chronic voice and give my ideas on her writing prompts.
The prompts this month are Purging, Seizing, Opening, Revamping and Envisioning. Welcome to 2020!
Getting rid of stuff, hey I really need to do that. I need to keep my house clearer to assist my mobility. At Christmas time when the kids had their toys all over the floor, it made me very unstable and I even had a fall landing on my daughter. (I didn’t hurt her.)
The Christmas toys and decorations have gone now but it’s made me think of how I can get rid of more things to make more space. In particular my bedroom. I’m slowly getting there in getting it all sorted out, but there is so much more I need to purge. I will be needing a lot more space in there later this year.
I have also purged my kitchen cupboards of tins and jars that we will never use. I’ve asked my husband to take them to the local foodbank. Hopefully they will be more useful to others in need and it’s a great way of making more space while helping someone else. Of course, all the outgrown clothing goes in the charity bags too.
I wasn’t sure what to write here but at times I really feel like giving up altogether, so I guess those are the moments when I seize every day. It can be hard living each day in pain and not being able to do things you used to do, but sometimes you have to seize the moments you can and make the best of them.
These days those, most of the seizures happen within my own body, but I will keep fighting and find a way of getting rid of them.
I’ve had my eyes opened a lot over the past four years. A lot of my previous thoughts and beliefs have been turned upside down. It’s not a bad thing although it hurts at times. Especially when you find that trust isn’t kept and ideals not shared.
I have always believed myself to have an open mind but in fact it’s been very closed. This year I will open my eyes even more and instead being shocked and dismayed I will do it with understanding. Everyone is different after all.
I’m also going to open my mind to other kinds of therapy. As the song goes ‘The Drugs Don’t Work’ they may help a little but I want more. I used to have so many things I believed in, I thought the mind could heal anything. So maybe it’s time to start thinking outside the box, or even the consultants office.
I need a lot of revamping in my life. I am going to change my daily routines and give my soul a revamp. I think this will call for a lot more organization and work, but that’s maybe what I need. I have too many things going on, I always do, but if I can organize them I can give them the attention they need. First of all I need to decide what I can and can’t do and to focus!
Also, there will some revamping of my home, if you can call it that. This year I’ll be having a new wet room installed so I won’t be risking my life everytime I take a shower. I will also be having a lift put in so no more stairs for me. Some days going up and down the stairs is my worst nightmare.
Envisioning – Welcome to 2020
Each year I make sure I have a lot of things to look forward to, whether it’s a holiday, a trip to the theatre or a new project. There always has to be something to keep me going.
This year I think it’s time to think bigger and better and do those things I’ve always wanted to do but never managed. If I can envision it, I can do it, right? Watch this space!
