With my brain trauma event, I seem to be taking life more personally now. After some deep reflections, I have decided that what might happen twenty years from now should not be on my radar screen. Even ten years is questionable as I will likely not be around even then. Why should I fret over a time when I won’t even exist, especially since I leave no heirs to suffer the consequences of these idiotic times.
I have been weaning myself off politics for a couple of months now and I am seriously thinking of simply pulling the plug on that topic. It is just getting too dirty for me and I simply don’t see a way out of that condition anytime soon. I will leave it to others to pull us back from the edge if that is even possible now. Summarizing, I won’t spend any of my remaining days fretting about things I have little control over.
My recent personal reflections are not all negative in nature. I have decided to take time each day to reflect on the good things that happened that day. I will thank the Lord for every day he gives me. Each one is considered precious in my mind now. How I spend those days is also changing. I won’t flitter them away waiting for better circumstances that will likely never happen. I will do my best to make something good happen every single day that I have left. I will proverbially stop and smell the roses.
How is this going to affect my blog here at RJsCorner? I know a large part of my viewership comes from my observations on politics. My hit count has already taken a serious decline, but that is ok. I will just have to take the thought that doing RJsCorner more for myself than for anything else. I will continue with some additional fervor my photography and travel posts. They are an important part of my life, especially now.
I also hope my creativity posts increase to take up some of the space left behind and of course I will continue “having my say” on non-political topics. If none of this interests you then it is time for you to delete my blog from your reading list. I do hope that there are some of you who stay around so that I am not totally talking to myself. 🙂
With my stats going down I may also need a little additional encouragement from those who continue to hang around RJsCorner. Life goes on a day at a time now…. at least for me.
