Every morning I think that I must get back to writing but visits to doctors, keeping track of medicines timings ( not only for self but my wife also ) and our dog keeps my mind in spin. There are a lot of ideas which generate as I observe so many happenings around when I take our dog for walk or visit market as I still continue shouldering my normal responsibilities as much as I can. These activities keep me tired not only physically but mentally too. Then the situation I am facing or rather we are facing makes me feel more so. Anyway one has to face what life throws.

This makes me firmly believe that one has to face whatever be it at ownself, though there are close ones, relatives as well as friends, who offer support and sympathies but at the end of the day it is one who has to do what needs to be done for own happiness or well being. They may offer physical help or suggest ways to overcome stress but one has to control own mind from wandering off to negative side. If one wishes to have stressfree life one needs to keep positive attitude for a start. One needs to take health issues as those are and take precautions plus medicines as prescribed by doctors. Next one needs to have an open mind and think of whatever happens from point of view of one whom one may blame for such events. That is the way to understand whys and hows. A frank logical talk with other person helps if that person also wishes to resolve the issue. Remember that we come alone to this world and go alone also.

Well, enough of GYAAN ( preaching ) for the day, isn’t it?

You take care Uncle Jack!
Every word here is true...each has to face the storm alone but a little hand-holding helps.

Wish you good health Uncle

Hi Uncle,

It has been quite some time I have been to any blog. I am sorry to hear about your visits to the doctor. I pray you be well. I have moved country, to say the least. That's a big change for now and I am still adjusting to it. About your questions on my writing niche, I haven't been writing anything. But I have re-adjusted myperfectline.com with the hopes of resuming there. I tried different blogs but none of them really clicked. Please be well. Take care.
