Reflecting on reflections: 2020 vision
Why do we do what we do? Naturally, I refer to the publishing of buzzes, or articles, or posts.
Why do we... engage? Do we feel that what we know is of imperative value to others? Do we have a need to be heard? A wont to verbosity? A plea to opine? Or do we simply mean to try and reach out that others may make some semblance; some connection, in their own lives.
Is this altruism or is the need ours alone?
For myself, it has taken quite a long time to realize I don't do well with others.
Strange as the person I once was (although I didn't know it at the time), I'm actually content with that. It has become me, and that's okay.
But...what of those who are still struggling with their 'place'?
Allow me a moment of bare knuckle-ness: I have moved so very far from what I thought I was (or where to be) that perspective became the new prism; the 'truth' became a guide.
We are the strangest creatures. We are anomalies. Incongruous with our wont. Inconsistent with our hope. Disingenuous, even to our own hearts.
Yet.....yet. We are perfect. We are what we were made to be. Don't read into that too much.....if you have no religion, it stands to reason that you have no faith. If you happen to think we're here because of an alien bladder, so be it. Been there, done that, wore the tutu.
I have learned I'm better left alone, yet that is no plea nor cry; it just is exactly what I said: I work better alone. I write mainly about Parkinson's Disease, Neurodegeneration, medical...yada, yada. I have a lot of peeps (Neuroscience to patients) in the field that I communicate with, but I don't work with. Why? Because I wish to not be behoven...keeps me clean.
What, this last decade, have you learned about yourself? Is it okay that you need 'time out'? Is it something that you have to hide from business/family/loved ones, you need quiet...a time to reflect? You are YOU. And that's perfectly good enough.
I'm an old broad. My burden is greater than I'd like, but hey...life is...life.
Only one piece of advise I'd dare to offer: it's less about looking to your future, it's more about how your future will look back at you. Be precious to yourself - I bet you deserve it. Love - where and whenever, in abundance.
Happy New Year, cupcakes!
