Do something different! Today! Act on impulse. If it is your “off day” from dialysis, go to a nearby park. go fishing, fly a kite, take a walk, drive a road off the main road that’s not your usual path, call or visit a friend you haven’t talked to in a while, etc.
What did I do to “change”?
While I was writing this, I paused for a moment and sent text messages tro several people I haven’t talked to in a while. As I considered this, before I acted upon it, at first I thought, “Later.” But, what if later didn’t happen. What if I never got around to it? Then, change wouldn’t happen. I am in control of my life when I enforce change. Change can be the smallest thing. It doesn’t have to be “dramatic”
For all of us Dialysis patients (and people in general), we can easily get caught it a doldrum life where we just live for dialysis. We are either in dialysis or waiting for dialysis. Our lives center around dialysis instead of the other way around. By enforcing and encouraging change, acting upon impulse, we break the chain that bind us. We gain control of our lives. Embrace change! Go for it!
