Light up

One of the best things my Dad did for me growing up - which partially shaped my regard for myself - was the way he lit up when I walked in the room.
    Now from one moment to the next he doesn't remember I'm here. So, he gives me this same look of delight pretty much every time he closes his eyes and opens them again.

    Focus on others

    I find that life is less frustrating and painful when I stop focusing on myself and start focusing on others. For me - for me - frustration, anxiety and sadness have a high level of self indulgence. Every time I feel a bit better I realize that I have shifted my attention to something other than my own struggles. Remind me.

    You can't change the past

    You can't change the past" is a fallacy. Time changes our perspective and our feelings, and we constantly acquire new information; all of which casts our already compromised memories in a different light. Nothing changes more than the past.
