Tell us about one thing (or more) that you promised yourself you’d accomplish by the end of the year. How would you feel once you do? What if you don’t?
Keep living. That’s my main expectation for the year. Not very ambitious, I know. Or maybe it is. Who knows what can happen.
I don’t make big resolutions for the year. That doesn’t mean my life is empty of interests and projects. But now I have one priority: my family and taking care of my paralytic mother.
She was totally independent, had an ictus and suddenly became totally dependent. Her illness changed my life from one day to another. I learned not to rely too much in my plans for the year. Things can change when you less expect.
I’m glad I have the opportunity to take care of my mom. It’s a way to give her back the love she gave me during her life. Her smile is my best reward.
I’ll try to keep her as comfortable as possible, try to relieve her sufferings as much as possible, be with her, talk with her, make her smile even laugh. That makes me happy.
Of course I’m trying to do other things like writing this blog and another one about World News if I have the time. But as I said I’m taking my life day by day. Keep living. Or as Dory says in Finding Nemo, Just Keep Swimming!. One can achieve a lot by doing that.
