I am learning that letting my caregivers have a holiday (it is now spring break here, despite the dreary sky outside) means I can be resourceful on my own, and welcome support from others, too. If an activity sounds like too much, I can say , no, thanks. The fact is, we are often better together than alone, so our good company may be music, a friend, being part of fellowship (today there is a workshop for singing, playing, making choices about the direction of my Unitarian Fellowship), a student massage, honoring my body's need for down-time. I can choose to spend 15 minutes learning clutter, as this is an on-going one for me. I can take some time to explore a new neighborhood instead of focusing on where I feel overwhelm. Self-acceptance is critical to making wiser decisions.
Here is hoping you have some pleasant surprises this new day too. Here is a brief poem from my heart to yours. "Love allows us to be more present, open, and trusting we are worthy of miracles.
Love lets us move on when it is time to do so. Love is a mystery, an unfolding to the wonder of this our precious life. Adieu!"
