This was a week of intermittent inspiration mixed with bouts of blahs. Later in the week, I sat in front of the computer screen with no words.
Getting overly tired and spending too much time in my head combined for the blahs, so to counter that, I worked hard at shifting my focus to being grateful instead.
I was pretty successful making the shift to gratitude for much of my days, but often found myself unable to focus on any one thing. I was getting too far ahead of myself in my mind and totally missing taking care of what was in front of me.
There is no real cause for panic despite the many things I feel are out of my control. Things could be (and have been) far worse. To update you, my wrist continues to slowly improve. My illness symptoms continue to be more manageable and I have ventured out a little more.
I have figured out a way to get around with someone, that doesn’t require a walker or cane or wheelchair. I am researching the neuroscience behind dance (particularly the Argentine Tango) being therapeutic for movement disorders (and various other disorders), which is quite fun for me.
I have so many things and people in my life for which to be grateful, and I want to spend the week ahead focusing more on those. My hope is to shift the percentage of brain space and energy from the rest of the whirling, nearly spiraling thoughts, to the many blessings.
Can you see your blessings among the rest of the day-to-day stuff?
