We present as part of Time To Talk’s national day of discussion about mental health (Feb 7th) a week’s worth of posts about how this 52 year old finally made a difference and started listening to herself and others, before determining to improve life for the better…
These views are mine alone, and absolutely 100% do not mesh with anybody else’s opinion on anything. WELCOME TO HOW BLOGS WORK.
In which there is more than one revelation.
Today’s hugely important for me, as has been stated, but not for the reasons some of you might think. Sure, we all love validation, but in the end it isn’t that I’m off to London for. Tonight is a step into light from darkness. I’ll be handing out business cards (note to self, need to get some new ones made) and hoping that maybe someone will be impressed with my performance. The only way, after all, that you ever get noticed is by being around to begin with. Social interaction’s never been a strong point.
That really has to change.
That also means, that once my daughter’s room is decorated and I’ve managed to edit a few things for re-submission, there ought to be video blogging. Operating parameters need to be reassessed, so that there’s more outward and less inward facing stuff. This desk isn’t practical for purpose, having used it since late August, so it will be time to see what can be re-purposed to make that happen. I’d like to recycle wherever possible. The future, at least for me, is reusing old shit for good.
It works with the .GIF content, after all. Today’s post is shorter than the rest of the week’s output because this point doesn’t need much explanation. It just needs me to believe it.
You are Part of the Problem.
Start listening to other people. Take advice. Actually DO THAT. Then LEARN and LISTEN some more. Try not to be so hard on yourself either. Stuff goes wrong, of course it does. The fact remains, that if any of this shit is ever gonna change for the better, that’s your job.
You are not Alone.
This might finally be starting to stick, you know…
