Happy New Year.

Have to be honest I have never been a fan of the new year, I always find it to be a sad time. sort of pulling the final curtain down on the past.

But as I am getting older I start to think "I haven't got much time left to do the things I want to do" and that's another year gone now.

And as you get older the years just race by.

Yes that's true, the older you get the quicker the years seem to pass, but at least you're here and can do some of the things you want to do. I don't think there is anyone who does everything they want to before they go. Just do what you can and enjoy your life, there are plenty who can't. 😊

Funny you should say that, my wife and I are keen cyclists and sometimes the weather turns bad and it's wet and cold and we get a bit fed up and wish we were back home. I always say to my wife "some poor person stuck in a wheelchair would do anything to be able to do what we are doing" so we should be grateful.

Last Sunday for example it was as I described above so to cheer the wife up I sang a few carols, she speeded up and we got home sooner, (she speeded up to try to get away from hearing me)!

Haha! You're right there, you can always find someone whose off than you Druid. For me, the glass is always half full, not half empty. You can find good thinness in your situation no matter what it is. I've been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, a very painful, debilitating illness that gets worse the longer you have it, but at least I can still do some things for myself, even if not much anymore, at least I'm not in a wheelchair yet, at least I've still got my faculties, despite the memory loss and 'brain fog' it causes. So the glass, once again, is half full not half empty! 😊 No sense in looking back at what was, look forward from today onwards... Today is the first day of the rest of your life, so go for it! 😊 😊
