Blue sky dreaming

There’s been plenty of blue skies today. Gale force winds have chivvied the clouds around almost recklessly. Hapless office workers scuttled around at lunch time, and little old ladies muttered about the indignities as the wind hammered around between the buildings.

In our little corner of the world, however, there was calmness of a kind we haven’t experienced for a very long time.

Late last night, Marica submitted her dissertation for her Masters of Art Therapy. I’ll let her tell you that story, but, be assured, in that one split second that it takes to click “Send” our lives have changed.

Maybe that’s the way it always works – you spend a long time, maybe years working with something, maybe hating it, maybe loving it and in a flash it’s all changed. Sometimes this is huge, amazing, and potentially good like winning a Lotto prize, and other times it’s huge but bad… someone drives into you, a test results comes back, or your boss not only seems like a lame loser, but is, and now you’re out of a job.

Ultimately you can’t tell at the time whether it’s going to be good or bad – and often it is how you play the cards – people do triumph in adversity. What you can do is look on the change for the merits and vow to do the best you can to do the best you can. Turn up, do the best you can, keep on giving, rinse, repeat. By all means take some baby steps, but take some action. Apply yourself. You’ll feel better. It’ll work out in the end.
