Time to plan for two rainbows.

Hello and welcome. I hope that your day has been calm and that you have some wonderful activities planned for your weekend or at least plan for a relaxing one. I have had another good day today. I visited with my psychologist and we had a chat about the things that went wrong and how I can organise my life so that I will have plans set up and have something to fall back on.

I did my walk for today, so I am feeling very sore and ache in places I have long forgotten about, but I have been promised that this is good for me. I am reading my JD Robb book and whilst it is taken me longer I am still enjoying my Eve and her no-nonsense approach to solving crimes. My Centrelink contact was good and the department has decided that I will be on a medical exemption until the middle of April, which means that I do not have to seek employment or work for the dole. So I will have all the time I need to focus on just getting myself back to an even level.

I am going to spend some time over the weekend having a look at setting up a parent advice page, as this is something I think I could do well and I know from my years as a parent and teacher, that quite often parents really feel lost with many of the questions that crop up during raising  kids. 

I have had two really big days and I am very surprised just how much better I am feeling. I know that I have had the backup phonecalls and appointments with the medical staff but little things like me actually talking to other people on the bus. I had not noticed just how much I had isolated myself from the world. Today I had two people come up to me and tell me what a beautiful smile I had, I helped a lady with her groceries and another lady get a muzzle on her dog for the ferry trip, and I chatted with other travellers like I had known them forever. I really did not know just how much I had cut myself off from the world over the past five months. I know it will be a slow return back to where I was before the turn and I may have lost some of who I was but I will gain new skills, and if I start with a smile every day then I will not only feel good but I will also make someone else feel better.

Uluru is a massive sandstone monolith in the heart of the Northern Territory’s arid “Red Centre”. The nearest large town is Alice Springs, 450km away. Uluru is sacred to indigenous Australians and is thought to have started forming around 550 million years ago. It’s within Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, which also includes the 36 red-rock domes of the Kata Tjuta formation.                                                                                                                                                                                                        I have used this beautiful photo as it has two glorious rainbows, which is a rare occurrence, and I am in awe of this glorious rock. I have been out to it several times and I have actually climbed it (prior to us learning to respect the Indigenous rights) and I felt a calmness I have rarely felt.  I plan to have a grounded central foundation but sometimes, I can inspire calmness, awe, creativity and numerous other feelings that make                                                                                     people feel better.
