In A Better Place?Apologies for a long and rambling post without any photos!
Am I in a better place than I was this time last year? That's a question I have been asking myself today and I think that the answer must be yes.
Although, I am soon to loose the majority of my lounge, due to renovations and I have the prospect of having the washing machine moved into what's left of the usable bit of the lounge - I am in a better place because we have a beautiful bathroom now which we didn't have this time last year so I can now take long languishing baths instead of quick showers.
Even though I am the same weight I was last year I am a little more comfortable with it and feel that I have a new incentive to get fitter.
The sadness of loosing Dad is counteracted by the knowledge that he would have rather have left us quickly and painlessly, as he did, than deteriorate to such an extent that he could no longer do the things he loved and that kept him going.
Work is more settled this year and I feel that I know what I need to do to get the best out of all situations there. I feel I am more in control of the things I should have control over.
Over the past year I have mellowed and given Gracia much more Independence which means that she is out far more - a good thing because we appreciate the time we spend together much more and argue much less. Also it means that David and I spend more time together and are rediscovering the pleasure we get from each other's company - he says it is practice for when Gracia goes to Uni.
So taking all things into consideration I am in a much better place.
Reasons to be cheerful:-
1. Accepting what life has in store for you and looking for the best in it.
2. Kiera and I managed to walk much further today.
3. The piece of technology I have been struggling with for the past 2 weeks has fallen into place and it is much easier to use than I had thought.
