ABC's of Life

This engraved stone was a table-top display at the funeral home where Terry’s viewing was held. I tracked down the text but wasn’t able to find who to attribute it to. Here ’tis:

Live With Intention

 Accept differences;  Be kind;  Count your blessings;

 Dream;  Express thanks;  Forgive;

 Give freely;  Harm no one;  Imagine more;

 Jettison anger;  Keep confidences;  Love truly;

 Master something;  Nurture hope;  Open your mind;

 Pack lightly;  Quell rumors;  Reciprocate;

 Seek wisdom; Touch hearts;  Understand;

 Value truth;  Win graciously;  Xeriscape;

 Yearn for peace; Zealously support a worthy cause.

I’ve been hunkered down trying to apply myself to searching for a job…. any job that brings an income. Objectively I know I’m mentally hyper active but at the same time I’m battling a seeming inertia – lots of confusion, wasted and mis-directed energy, dithering and stewing.

Mainly I’ve tried to impose order in life – little things. Get up at a certain time; ‘x’ amount of time to eat, have coffee and be cleaned up and ready for the day by ‘y’ hour. Have a plan for the day; vary the activities, accomplish little things.

My CV has been re-written into a couple of new formats stressing different things. There are a couple of leads to track down and get more information on today; calls to make. Tonight I intend to attend an a town hall meeting put on by an elected provincial MPP on the topic of Mental Health and Addiction. There might be contacts to be made there and perhaps I can make some noise about the closure of the centre.

Thanks ‘out there’ for your acts of kindness and interest. Means a lot; really it does. I’ll be back soon.
