I do thank all for the good wishes both regarding Nellie and my head aches. I am happy to say that Nellie is at home and all in all is doing well. My head aces are much better. I still have them but the pain is only a fraction of what it was.
Something I have long known but am now being reminded of, Quality of life. What is quality of life. I suppose it is the extent to which we are able to live our lives in a manner acceptable to us, individually. There is no one acceptable norm here. What may be acceptable for me may not be for you or visa versa.
How do you rate the quality of your life? I hope many will respond please, I really would like to know as this is an issue I am struggling with.
Now I am guessing that many will reply: “It sucks because…..”, or I guess it is not bad but….”. This is were the “if only”s” can come to rule our worlds.
By what yard stick or measure do you determine the the quality of your life? I am guessing at this but I think many if they are honest will base the quality of life on their external surroundings. That being material possessions and people in our lives. Now let’s face it we all need money having or not having enough can affect the world around us. There are millions of examples I could use here. Let’s consider a house. Is your quality of life improved by living in a multi-million dollar mansion in a posh area of town as opposed to say living in a older much less expensive maybe even run down house in less poshy area. A house/mansion is nothing but a building, a home is where we settle our hearts irregardless of the material value of anything surrounding us in our worlds. Sure some material things are nice to have but that is as far as it goes. They do not affect our quality of life.. I got a little chuckle here thinking of material possessions, my music sound system is a clock radio and it suites me just fine. Our quality of life is determined by our own thoughts.
I ask all to think about this for a moment. For any that think “My life sucks because…….”. Think about this there are many that are dying and know it. Now that by itself sucks but imagine if the very best you can hope for is while being bed ridden you can be relatively pain free. Imagine being in their position. Does your life suddenly maybe sound not so bad after all? Would you want to exchange you sucky life for theirs? Let me know what you think
