I am so glad the holidays are over. Is that a bad thing? I secretly don’t like vacations either, or weekends, or surprises. Basically I am a creature of habit, I like it when things are the same. This is what I don’t like about RA … it keeps changing, it pops up in new places unexpectedly, every week is a new thing.
The end of the holiday season is also the end of my concert season for the year. I am super pleased that I made it through a very heavy month of rehearsals and concerts. Even though I felt I was not up to my full technical playing ability, I think it was close enough that nobody but me could tell I was a bit off my game.
Life is a series of changes and accomodations. Even without RA wouldn’t my playing ability change and decline over the years? Don’t we all make changes to accomodate our age … eyesight … finances … weather? Should I take these changes with a zen-like acceptance, or a warrior fight?
Time for the resolutions! I resolve to keep my eyes open and remain flexible in 2013.
ps – a heartwarming RA article! I would like all Rheumatologists to spend some time in this suit.
