With the world being so chaotic and so surreal I am finding this chaos difficult. How are you keeping your world stable?
I have been trying to keep a routine. Since i can't go to physio I walk everyday. My daily goal is now 2 miles before noon. I almost always get up by 8am....though usually begrudgingly. Then I start the morning rituals before I go walk. These are just a few little items...open the curtains, feed the cats, make coffee, take dog out...these little routines help me. They can't be too complicated as I get distracted easily, lol, no serious.
I am also learning to celebrate 'MY' success. I try to acknowledge my efforts despite their perceived smallness to others. I filled the coffee pot without dumping water all over. Awesome! I emptied the dishwasher without dropping something. Woo Hoo!! I had a whole conversation on the phone without stuttering and losing my words. Celebrate!
And when the days aren't that good I just have to redefine my success. I made it all the way to the stop sign before I fell this time. Party! Or, Well at least I didn't get frustrated and start cussing/crying/shaking again (that one is rare). I had the whole havent fallen down all month thing going until this afternoon. But, I didn't fall on the dog this time, YES! (He's 120 lbs and uninjured) I'm sure I look foolish raising my hands in triumph over mastering the can opener, but this old girl needs all the support and encouragement possible.
Spoken words are strong magic. Remind yourself daily of how beautifully unique you are.
Blessings to all.
