I have a couple of chronic health issues. Recently I have had to come to terms with being unable to work, for an employer, full time.
This admission has made me really look at my life and what I want out of it.
Well, I want to be happy, who doesn’t? No one know wakes up and says “you know what? I really feel like being miserable”.
I want to do things which make me happy. Things which make me happy certainly won’t be other people’s idea of happy and even hubby thinks some of mine are weird, housework being one of them
I like being alone, I like reading, making things, writing, gardening, the list of things I enjoy is very, very long. That said, I still can’t do everything on my list, there just aren’t enough hours in the day! Unless, you were part of the Harry Potter universe and could have a time turner, wouldn’t that be great?
So, how do I pace myself whilst trying to be the happiest version of me I can be? I have no idea, I’m going to try and figure that out.
This is not to say that my health won’t flare up and I’ll be like a tellytubby on speed 24/7, but I can try to keep myself in a positive frame of mind for the most part, after all admitting I can’t is probably the biggest hurdle I needed to get over.
