In Fandango’s provocative question post this week, he says
I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, “Nobody’s perfect.” We all make mistakes occasionally. We say wrong things. We do wrong things. We fail. We fall. Hopefully we get up, dust ourselves off, and learn from our mistakes so that we can move on with our lives.
With that in mind, I was thinking about things, both big and small, that people can do to be better. And that leads me to today’s provocative question, which is this…
What is the one thing you would like to change about yourself? What would it be and why?
When I first read Fandango’s intro today, I thought about yesterday’s events, and changing Nobody’s Perfect to No Body’s Perfect. I think most of us would like to change our body shape, size, or weight especially if like me they are forever fighting the battle of the bulge and craving for pastries, cakes and all things horrendously calorific.
Saying that though, I’m actually quite content with ‘Me’ despite the extra pounds as it’s taken a couple of decades to get here and I’m not going to blow it now with fad diets or starving myself to fit somebody’s tick list.
There was a time when just the lightest touch was enough to send the pain in Hubby’s legs, back or shoulder into submission, a time when massage was key to helping him sleep at night, a time when the heat from my hands would ease the pain and relieve the cramp.
Not so now I’m afraid. The above pictures were take over three years ago, and I have not been able to wear my rings since my surgery in October 2019, mainly because my joints are now quite pronounced and on a bad day extremely painful. I get cramp in my fingers which is the main reason I don’t play the piano as often, I can’t grip as well as I used to and lately even holding a pen puts pressure where I don’t want it so it’s difficult to write. Thank heavens for a keyboard!
