What does it mean to get back to basics?
return to basic instruction; start the learning process over again.

Basic – the word itself means fundamental, simple, elementary. Life is so complex at the moment that it proves difficult to revert to the simple. I am at such a crossroads where I can’t see forward because it looks too simple and therefore is more complex than a Rubik’s cube.
I was lousy (still am) at solving Rubik’s cubes.
I like the definition of the free dictionary – start the learning process over again. It makes sense in my current mood. I mean here I am complaining about first world problems. I have it good – a job, a home, food, clothing, partner(s), residual income (admittedly very little but it is there) and I am studying. I have nothing to complain about. I am richer than a large portion of the world and some would give anything to have a quarter of what I have.
So why the bloody hell am I so … MEH! (that just seems to sum it up)
So I need to learn again. Learn what it is to be thankful and grateful. I don’t need some of the stuff I am fantasising about. Hell, if I got it I wouldn’t actually know what to do with it. I get that some of my dissent is due to the fact that my studies are drawing to a close. I am having those anxiety attacks because I won’t know what to do with myself.
This post is about what makes me happy. So what makes me happy because that will inevitably decide which way I am going. I love my craft and reading and I have a room dedicated just to this. I am in love with my partner and the life we have together. I am enjoying my home that I have gotten 3/4 of the where I want it.
Life is good and I have no reason to complain. I am still not sure of what the road ahead is, or if I am going to go left, right or straight ahead. I know that this week especially holds some difficult decisions for me.
Basic for me is finding my feet after all the excitement and change that has been going on. I need to remember that even though it seems so hard it is in fact okay. I am rich in all the things that money cannot buy and I have comfort enough. I am just looking too hard to see what the end result will be instead of enjoying the now.
It’s not a cohesive or enlightening post. It’s me working through what is essentially a first world thing. I am beyond blessed and now I just have to take a step. There is no wrong path, just different outcomes. All part of my journey.
