This week Fandango asks;
How are you doing? Seriously, are you okay? Feeling good? Just okay? Not so great? Why do you think you’re feeling the way you are?
In Marilyn’s book I’m probably going to jinx myself by saying that I’m doing fine!
Why do I feel the way I feel?
I had surgery on my left foot at the end of June. This is a long procedure taking at least 12 weeks for the bones to fuse. I spent the first 6 weeks in bed, moving only to visit the toilet, and the rest of the time just sitting, lying on my bed; reading, blogging, and watching tv.
For the last 4 weeks, I’ve been allowed to walk and can attend to my needs myself. The cast will come off in about 10 days and I’m hoping that I’ll be able to walk pain-free.
So why all this preamble, you’d ask?
I want to say that I’m fine despite what I’m going through, I feel fine and contented with my life. The reason for this is that I have come to terms with life. Whatever comes my way, I’ve accepted it as the will of God and I know that the more we fight the inevitable, the less peace we have. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t any disturbances in my life. There are, but if one is ready for upsets one can take them in one’s stride.
Another important thing that I’ve adopted is to stay away from negativity. News, tv talk shows, and negative people, all are on my list to avoid. Some would say that I’m living in a fool’s paradise, and are probably right. But my first duty is towards myself, and it’s the only way I can keep a sane mind.
