Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
At the beginning of Autumn in March (Downunder), I wrote a post about how noticing the change of seasons and the way nature changes is a great opportunity to have a change of mindset. I felt a little lost at the time about a number of things including staying on track with raw.
Well, six months later I cannot say I have found the magic formula so that I no longer go "off track" nor that I have achieved any particular goals. However I am still here at RFR, learning and sharing and very happy about that!
Our old oak tree that is a towering presence in our back garden has just started to sprout its tiny perfect pale green leaves and soon the whole tree will look like there are a thousand tiny birds sitting in its branches.
So what have I learned in the last two seasons?
Appreciation ... for every little thing that is OK, good, wonderful and also not so good.
Patience...... for myself and others... learning how to wait well when we have to wait.
Listening to the inner voice and my feelings differently ..... even when it isn't easy.
And on and on I could go. But that's about me. How about YOU?
The last two seasons will have taught you many things too.
Have you been watching the Paralympions and their great feats and their joyous exhilaration?
They seem to wear their heart on their sleeve a lot more than many of us do AND WHY NOT?
The more real we are, the more chance there is to connect with the real in someone else.
I applaud their spirit. I applaud all the Rehabbers who day after day do their best to make their best life.
So I'm going to take a leaf out of the old oak's book, put my best self forward and SPRING into every day.
How about you :)
