I Have Learned a Couple Things This Week

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Monday was definitely an off day for me. I read a health article and immediately thought of dh. It's Antisocial Personality Disorder. Although I have been away from him for three years now, the psychological damage still has residual effects on me. I had forgotten that Monday was his birthday. Was it still in my subconscious?

I went to the Detroit Tigers game on Sunday. I'm a HUGE Tiger fan and I really like watching Miguel Cabrera. He impresses me as someone who still has youthful exuberance when playing the game. He loves what he's doing and has fun doing it. I did a web search on him this morning. His full name is Jose Miguel Cabrera Torres - how it happened that he is known only by his two middle names is something I don't know. His birth date was posted. He was born on my oldest daughter's third birthday. No wonder I saw youthfulness in him - he's youthful!

I guess that means that I really am getting older. So, between my age and my health problems, I'm not going to be able to quite do all the things in one day that I could do 30 years ago. I will probably still get aggravated with myself when I don't get things done, but maybe I'm a little unrealistic by thinking I can do a lot in one day. Unless, in my subconscious, I really think that I'm Superwoman....

    Well Superwoman,
    don't we all want to be like that... Is it a female thing or what? But, you said it Patty, you can't still do the things you used to do 30 years ago.... don't I know it!!!

    I still remember asking my bff's mom when we were teens, what is was like to get old? I think her answer was profound, she told me she wasn't getting older, everyone else was.... and she is now 85 and still going strong, so she too is a Superwoman!! I think that's why we need a reminder we can't do what we used to do 30 years ago...( But I better not say that too loud, cuz I am seriously considering and researching training to do a 5K.... I just haven't found one that suits me, cuz you have to be able to walk 25 min. and I already walk 120 min... so not sure where that leaves me... still the naysayers are freaking me out with "don't blow your knees", running is bad for you etc. etc...)

    I am going through some of that age adjustment thing too! I turned 50 in April and have been doing a personal inventory. I decided to not only look at what I can't do anymore but also what I have gained (e.g., wisdom that comes with age). emoticon

    Regarding things in subconscious: That happens to me sometimes. I have a tendency to "forget" or block unpleasant anniversaries from the past, but sometimes find myself out of sorts or agitated. When I am able to stop myself and say "This isn't like me. What's going on?" then sometimes later that day I'll remember what happened on or around that date in the past.

    We all wish we were Superwoman! We need to settle for being "simply amazing," I guess.
