In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Shadowed” and for Blogging 101, Saturday, January 10, 2015.
I choose to manipulate the various shadows I perceive in my life to be able to view the life I want. By shadows, I am referring to those times when life doesn’t look quite right, or when my usually cheerful mood is occluded by something else in my world. For example, if I have plans and then my MS acts up and I have to modify the plans, that would be something I would classify as a shadow. I would then manipulate variables in my day to make my plans come to fruition despite the apparent setback so that life can proceed according to the original design. That is a scenario that I would categorize as a shadow or minor setback requiring a creative response within my world to make everything turn out as originally intended. That is a situation which I would classify as a win-win because after 30 years of this MS crap, I have yet to find any situation so bad that a little creative tweaking would not turn it around. I am indeed lucky!
