Maia Duerr encourages us to do an audit of the past year - a reflection and intention process - a useful exercise so that one can carry on and expand areas that are useful and fulfilling, drop or cut down on that that are neither and plan new ventures. Of course much, if not most, of the future, as with the past that we are reflecting on, has been predominated by Other Power and not by our own efforts! However we have to take a step in some direction.....not much will happen if we stay in bed with the covers pulled over our heads!
Can I qualify that? As someone who lives within the boundaries created by the ups and downs of M.E., I'm aware that we can achieve quite a bit, even when we are in bed, even for some days or weeks, if we have a smart phone and laptop for company. And most of what I do is internet-based, from the comfort of this overcrowded sofa, using my beloved, becoming elderly, not quite up to speed, Mac PowerBook. Like me - not as whizzy as the young 'uns but hanging on in there, doggedly refusing to say die - or 'can't'!
