In my last blog, I told all of you what I had been going through during the last 6 or 7 months of 2012. I had even written a poem about it all (and I am not a poet in any sense of the word)!
At this time I would like to thank all of you who took the time to read, consider and answer it. It is times like these that you find out where your support comes from. Now it is time to move forward until the next trigger hits because it will come sooner or later. I am now better able to deal with it.
I am making no grand promises to myself this year, I will do the very best I can without beating myself up if I do not measure up to some artificial standard. I am in therapy where I am learning not to set lofty goals but realistic ones. As some are aware, I have health issues which, at times, prevent me from doing any form of exercise and sometimes even from driving. I am aware that my driving days are numbered while hoping they do last at least until my DH retires.
I am learning that I am not my mother or my MIL even though I loved them both very much. Family dynamics are funny things but all of us have to deal with them.
I would like to wish all of my SparkFriends a very healthy and happy New Year and hopefully we will all meet our goals, whatever they are.
