Yesterday I had my one year post cataract surgery checkup. All is well and I am still seeing better than I have ever, with or without glasses. What a miracle!
I had trouble throwing out my contact lenses for awhile, not quite trusting that my vision would last. Those tiny plastic orbs were my lifeline. Since my 20’s I lived in fear that there will come the day when my optometrist would no longer be able to fit me and I will have to make do with the thick heavy ugly glasses. Even the high indexed ones were thick and heavy, causing discomfort if I wear them all the time.
The checkup is a reminder of what a gift I’ve received. It’s a reminder to take care of myself. There’s so much of life yet to be lived and enjoyed. So today I am taking time to consciously take care of myself again. I’m trying to find the balance that I had lost the last while. I am resuming my exercise program. I am taking up the challenge of living an engaged life.
I was sorely disappointed to hear from the City of Saskatoon that there is no bylaw in regards to disposing snow on adjoining properties. Situations like that were left to neighbours to deal with between themselves. The news deflated me until I remembered that I wasn’t having the City deal with the situation anyways. I just wanted some ammunition to help me.
My anger and disappointment have dissipated. It is really not good karma to harbour such negative feelings. It is true what they say about what goes around comes around. Life will take care of things if you live in a correct way. Do unto other as you would want them do unto you. And so, I am at ease again. I am at peace.
