I was asked a few days ago what I meant by 'living life'.....and I had to stop and think about it trying to define 'living life' and what it means for me. Going back a few years (since I started digital art on the computer, writing my biography etc. etc.), I used to spend well over ten hours daily on the computer. Every available free minute was dedicated to 'creating' something. It was like an addiction (though I am not a good judge about addiction since i never had that problem) but I sure as heck was addicted to 'creating'...... And I thought I was 'living life'.
And then it happened. I had a very bad fall and broke and injured my back, pelvis etc. etc.....
That was just over three months ago but my life changed from that very moment. It has not been
the same i.e. my attitude has changed. I still love creating and sit at the computer but it is
not a priority for me any longer. No more rushing through dinners, visits or shopping to get
back on the computer. I am more conscious of HOW I spend the day, to look at the moments in
life, the little things, and spending quality time with those around me including my little
The scales tipped and I found my balance once more.
