Perfectionism's leaps vs conscious stepping(Part 1)

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Yesterday was one of those "dead days".
I was to stay with my mother in law the whole day long , since the girl who looks after her had a day off.
So hard to keep on talking and talking and saying the SAME old thing all day long - she is suffering from dementia and other several disorders due to or go with d.
Trying to be motherly with a never-mother , narcissistic person, one has to lie completely upon humanitarianism and stuff of the genre.
It seemed almost impossible to stay on track, move even a bit, think positive and stop feeling "hungry".
I was almost expecting it to be like that and decided in advance to let my perfectionism apart.
"Only two things" i said to myself, "just two things i wish you to keep up with"
"Take with you your food and stick to it"
"turn your hunger into book reading"
Results:1) I ate too much of a good stuff but it is the minimum of loss and i am HAPPY WITH MYSELF
2) I ve read part of an EXCELLENT BOOK of Richard Idemon which i know is there to keep on helping me in the future
3) Today i ve started my day with a fifty minutes walk by the sea with Nikos , listening to an audiobook with open, alert mind and a completely positive attitude.

Wish a very brilliant weekend to every spark friend!

    What a great attitude. You turned an unpleasant task
    into something for you! emoticon I sympathize
    as I am helping a friend who is a carer for her 91 year
    old mother who has dementia. Her mum insists on
    driving even though she has not had a certificate from
    the doctor for the last 3 years. I am drawn into this, even
    when we go for a walk and that's all I hear. I am going
    crazy, but I feel sorry for my friend as she just repeats
    everything as you say. I have to remove myself somehow.
    Kourageio dear friend. emoticon
