For me, finding a sense of balance feels harder some days more than others. I'm not talking about balancing life and work priorities - we all deal with those. It's finding a positive balance between my varied health issues.
It can be a frustrating journey, from day to day. Sometimes from hour to hour. All these different conditions sometimes interact, conflict and trigger/bounce off each other... it can be a real juggling act for me to keep on top of it - some days are better than others for me.
It's a bit of a manoeuvre, with all my different prescribed medications, as well.
➽ Plus, some days - I forget I am not well. I know that sounds ridiculous, but it's the whole randomness of it all that catches me unaware, from time to time.
Yes, it's an interesting journey... constantly discovering new aspects of it all. I didn't receive the textbook on "How To Live Life" when I started - I must have missed that memo - as we all did.

- It's one big discovery.

Yes, some days it's just easier to wear a mask and pretend everything is going OK... saves a lot of explanations. Plus then I don't feel as though I'm "bringing everyone else down."
➽ One of my "masks" is often acting "silly"... it's often easier to laugh than it is to cry, or attempt to explain.

► Yes, it's a "Ying/Yang" thing, I'm finding.
I have this framed picture on my wall... over 30 years ago, a very good friend gave it to me for my birthday... I guess the Universe already knew ahead of time, that this concept would become more realistic for me, later on in life?
NOTE: This post is not a "pity-party/woe-is-me" thing, as I'm simply sharing a very brief insight into some of the reasons as to why I may act so "up-and-down" from time to time.
