Pants over trousers

Sunday January 16, 2022

On Thursday, Sally wrote to us about turning 70 and what the future might shape into for her now.

Looking back is not something I would recommend doing too often, for those of us who wrestle with our mental health - it seems to me that this can muddy and question our progress. However, looking back when you have half climbed a hill, isn’t just about garnering breath, it is also to see the view and celebrate your own hard effort to get to where you stand.

As Dr Seuss wrote in the book ‘Oh, The Places You’ll Go’ - 

“And when you’re in a Slump,
you’re not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself
is not easily done”

So if you question your age, your future, your ability, your capability, if you question yourself… remember that you are here, showing up, doing it, every single half day, and that you now hold all the wisdom that that brings.

Pretty much super-heroes.  Let’s fly.
