There is a book by Robert Heinlein – The Past Through Tomorrow. It is a collection of stories that moves from the past through today and far into the future. I have read it quite a few times, each time from a different perspective, as each time I am a different person. It also reminds that for everything there is a reason and sometimes the reason does not show itself until later.
I have been thinking much of my past and my future and how everything is connected into the now.
Life has been very hectic of late. A lot of family, a lot of work, a lot of change. Like most times in our lives, some of the change is positive and some is negative. How we manage the change, how it impacts our decisions, sets our future activities.
I cope with the negative by focusing on the positives in my life and re-imaging the negatives into their most positive aspects – I have been told that I am a glass half full type of person! I don’t believe that it is a bad thing to be. Right at this moment I am having difficultly with my management technique – LIFE is a little too full!
I am going to knit some more and think some more and cope some more. Knitting has brought me much solace through all the bad times before and will through the bad times ahead! Thinking allows me to understand and therefore cope with the situation. Coping takes me into the next day and the day after that until life has settled down.
Thank-you for listening……I am done with my moping and will go back to my knitting.
