What a fitting SoCS – concentration. My life revolves around the concept right now, and I’m grateful that I have enough of it to sit down and do this.
Me. me me me. I am to be the centre of my focus for the next few months, and I must learn again to be selfish, to concentrate on myself and what makes me who I am. The meds make me forget sometimes.
It won’t be the bad sort of selfishness, of course. Doing things for others enhances one’s sense of identity, I think. I won’t be wrapped in a blanket of narcissism and self-centredness, but I will put my needs first when it is reasonable. School, yearbook, a relationship… none of these things are worth me. Hopefully, in time, all the elements of my life will be able to coexist.
A major shift in thinking has had to occur lately. I think I will soon change my blog layout to better reflect my goals and dreams and hopes at the moment.
I heartily thank Linda for keeping this wonderful idea alive on her blog every week – I forget how freeing it can be to write without wondering if every single word is at its best, and I’m glad I can return and embrace it like a familiar friend, but with a fresh view.
Of course, between the stream-of-consciousness style and my scattered thinking, this post may not make any sense at all to you. If that’s the case, I’d like to refer you to this piece.
