And the Changes Just Keep Coming

Sometimes, I am most unaware when I believe I am being most mindful. Focus is my ability to narrow the life lens but in being present, I am in the world, not just my part of it.

My focus has been on my body’s adjustment to two hip-joint replacements in the space of three months. I have remained unaware of the world outside me, believing it to go on until I am fully able to participate.


And go on is just what it has done. The energy of life is never stagnant so the world will not still as much as I may need that to happen.

I live in an apartment, and there are major management changes occurring. Rumors are rampant and regardless what becomes reality, change is a fact.

I must open my life lens. Being unaware is no longer an option, not that it ever was.

Awareness is balance, the broadening and narrowing of the life lens, a continuous action. It’s experiencing the big picture and the most minute detail at the same time. What a revelation that is.

We cannot change what we are unaware of,

and once we are aware,

we cannot help but change.

    1. And so you do! Knee replacements are more difficult I have been told. My first one was easy; this one includes a fracture so different story. Thanks for stopping by.
