gulong ng palad (wheel of fortune)
December 16, 2016
we recently came back from an interstate trip. we watched a concert, ate somewhere I wanted to go and caught up with good friends while we were there. I don’t say it enough but I had a wonderful time with my family. I reflected on what I have (hopefully I’ll be more conscious of the things I need to be grateful for).
In some ways it’a blessing that my condition is unknown – that way I don’t have a set expiry date and are encouraged to make the most of each day. I don’t know when “my last good day is” so I should try to make the most while I still am able to.
It’s true what they say: something just clicks. It’s not about when other people prescribe you should be “ready” but when you realise it for yourself (for some it’s about “hitting rock bottom”). It’s about others facilitating but not dictating.
I’ve made a deliberate choice to try to make hay of the resources given to me while I still can (but still remaining pragmatic – I’ve a son and wife after all).
