On days where I have deep discussions about life, health and possible plans for all the uncertainties with all members of my immediate family, draining me.
Mostly on Sunday afternoons, this thought goes through my head while I prep myself emotionally for the week ahead.
Good plan, especially on days when nothing seems to be going well.
This is a great suggestion. One I use always. Not only does it make someone feel better, but it helps me feel better about myself.
I’m not so worried about the age factor, when I refer to this topic. What I am talking about is the fact, that with age, we tend to slow down, simplify our habits and delete (pardon the expression) most anything complex from the equation mostly because we are no longer able to tolerate it. This is what I am worried about.
In the last five plus years, I have found myself getting rid of most of my belongings, while expressing to those who asked, that I was downsizing just for the fun of it while I searched for new inspiration. However, while downsizing, I found myself also not interested in watching television, nor talking with anyone on the phone and I think the worst, is I’ve packed away my iPod. I’ve lost my patience and a bit of tolerance for loud noises and unnecessary conversation. This revelation kept me up last night, while I came to the conclusion, that I was getting older and requiring nothing but quiet and relaxation. Perhaps it’s because, I’ve done my part in creating chaos and loud noise, in my younger days and now all I want is silence, just so I could think and be at peace within myself.
I’m not sure I like this change…
I’ve often considered myself a nomad (not necessarily defined by Webster), but rather one unsettled soul roaming aimlessly through life with a bag of knowledge and experience in tow.
This is how I would explain the title of my blog to anyone who feels the need to relate.
I’ve contemplated starting this blog for years. I’ve actually done so elsewhere and due to the bleakness of the topics I chose to write there, I decided that blog was bringing me down way too much. So, I logged out one last time and put the blog out of my mind for a couple of years until I was ready to start it up again in a new place and with a new face.
The contents of this new and improved blog is my views on life, from the one I have experienced for several decades, in hopes that I could exchange knowledge and achieve what will ultimately make my life the best that it can be and hopefully along the way, I can help you as well.
Stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed.
