How About that November!

Flew by like a cloud caught in a between damp autumn and winter blast.

I started out November here-
Orange cloud sunset

And ended here-
For Grebes

Yup, I traveled. Again.
I have grown fond stepping down my custom side-door stairs. My physical therapist designed the wooden steps to accommodate my elevated walker with armrests. The contractor obliged although he believed I simply needed to decide not to need a walker ever again.
Hmmm, interesting thought. Just decide – choose ‘I will never need my walker ever again.’
In actuality, the builder had a point. Just decide.
After having fallen on the beach during an Aruba vacation, I suffered soft tissue damage. For the remainder of the vacation I possessed power, conscious choices as to how to spend my time.

I decided to enjoy the weather.
I decided to read outside on the first floor handicapped room porch.
I decided to use the wheelchair instead of staying in my room.
I decided to make the vacation the best of my possibility.
I decided not to walk on sand.
I had decided to take a huge leap of faith when I walked on sand years later on vacation in Jacksonville, Florida.

Many decisions and choices I have made stemmed from courage, faith, fear and love.

I have learned to never say never.
I have learned to never make promises you can’t keep; including myself.

I choose to make the best decisions I can in any given situation. What more can I or anyone ask of themselves?

November flew like a cloud
Flew by like a cloud caught in a between damp autumn and winter blast.
I started out November in Lido Beach, Florida-
And ended, home, at the Jersey Shore-

Oh, by the way, this vacation I decided to go into the Gulf of Mexico. I haven’t touched seawater, the Ocean or pool water since that trip I fell in Aruba.

Some decisions come later than others. I can live with that-
living life to the best of my possibility
