It's true there is plenty of drama (if you like it like I seem to) in our lives these couple of years.
But the things that are happening to us and to our bodies are less about the years and much more about the choices we made as we got here. and I'm thinking ...
would i have it any different now?
would I wish it to be easier...yes, physically easier. And I make that happen or not depending on the choices I have made since I told my mother (erroneously, as it turned out) that I could take care of myself.
BTW: I now offer tips -
But would I have listened to a 'me' from the future? or a chance meeting at IHOP? or something. probably not.
(just and aside: there is no - not one - comfortable place to sit and read...or type on a computer! just saying)
What I'm pushing against right now, is how 'aging' is a condition now. As in,
Yeah, I'm doing ok..I just have Aging, you know, and now they're telling me it might be terminal ! sigh...
It's in the language of the health professionals, too. Such a shame...I'm thinking.
I like the knowledge that I have the capacity to choose something different. I still lack faith in my ability to self-discipline. Doubt rears...
and I know I'm choosing when I choose not to change, ...yet.
And then I chuckle, and go stir the leftover mac & cheese, and close this tonight and read my funny detective story. sweet dreams kiddies.
