I considered using the word change, but it was so overused in the last election that I thought another synonymous yet perhaps more specific word was in order.
What do I aspire to revise? I think one of the words I most relate to in the list of synonyms is “recalibrate”, which is what I feel I really need to do.
For far too long I’ve not been feeling like myself, not really happy, and not really moving in the right direction. My word revise abolishes all that has been……it rejects continuing, sustaining and maintaining. I need to do none of that.
So I’m revising my game, my attitude and my determination to get what I deserve. I deserve to be happy and to feel good,mentally and physically……….
I’m revising my routines, to not be so rigid and to not be upset when my plans don’t go as I want.
I’m revising ………….me, to be stronger, better, happier………
Stick around…………to see how it goes!
My dad slept well last night, and woke a little after 5am and was lucid and non-combative, those are very good things to hear.
The Dr who has been attending to him during his stay did not yet sign release papers for him to move to re-hab facility today, but left word that her partner could and should do so after evaluating my dad after he wakes.
We are hopeful that he will be moving today. This re-hab is located on the campus where my parents currently live, in independant living apartments. It’s a little walk, but my mom will be able to see him daily. He can receive PT and OT services and with lots of work, he may be “home” soon.
I’ll update as I know more.
