What is the greatest joy in your life?
This has been a rough weekend, I'm trying to get some positive energy flowing.
Truthfully, I will answer this qusetion as someone in complete bliss. It would appear that within the last 4 weeks I have found a woman who seems like the perfect match, the woman I have been waiting my whole life to find. It seems crazy to say such a thing in such a short time, especially after going through the turmoils of a seperation taht is now in process of divorce. Yet the divorce is also one that is very amiciable and filled with positiveness. 2017 was my year from hell. 2018 has so far been a year of joy. I am hoping that you are able to find some joy in your life, I know it sucks to not have any. Good luck!
The greated joy I have at this moment of crappy time? It's also been a rough few months for me. lol But, I am thankfull that my best friend is still alive. He was in a major car accident and ended up with three metal plates and a shit ton of mesh in his head. All the shit I've been going through personally and he's been there chearing me up along the way... sitting in a nurcing home, going through surgeries. And I've been there trying to cheer him along too, even though he's half a country away.... Friendship. lol Friendship is the gretest joy in my life. Head up. The waters fine.
I've had 2 rough weeks. I'm trying my hardest to stay positive. I treated myself and bought a new jacket. It's in one of my posts. My greatest joy I'm happy about is, I'm constantly learning. New things, life lessons, new words, and new ways to view situations. Soon school for me, and I'll have to learn math all over again. I know enough up to Geometry, but high school math is way easier than college math. It has been 12 years for me being out of school.
I think the fact that I am in sheltered accommodation which makes me feel slightly safer - that I(now retired) can have all the time in the world for diddling around with craftwork that might come to something and might not it doesnt matter - that I feel freedom as a positive I owe no one anything and no one owes me - I have a very kind partner and we don't overdo the time together so there are no rules - Also I can play the 'aul' doll 'card if anyone would be trying to upset me - it seems far more straightforward than when I was younger and pretty much anybody's - I remember the title of one of Carl Rogers' books - On becoming a Person - At last I am a Person-Put out the bunting! dance in the streets!
My 3, almost 4 yr old grandson. He falls on yhe autism spectrum & isn't huggy/cuddly/lovey like my other grandkids. He has made me look at showing emotion differently. He will run up & hold hands & make eye contact...or when I walk in, he grabs both my hands & wants me to jump around. His giggle slays me.
He shows he wants me around but can't keep that constant contact.
He cuddles when he feels bad or is sleepy & wants a book.
Yes, its tough but I try to meet him where he is & its so worth it.
