“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Saying from the Bible
“The idea is to seek a vision that gives you purpose in life and then to implement that vision. The vision by itself is one half, one part, of a process. It implies the necessity of living that vision, otherwise the vision will sink back into itself.” Lewis P. Johnson
“If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same…”
“Defeat teaches better than victory.” Saying (Arab)
How do we find “vision” and “victory” when life tosses tsunamis our way? About 2:30 in the morning the horrendous crash tossed me out of bed and had me running for my husband’s bathroom. There he was passed out on the floor. My husband’s screams of “I wish I was dead!” resounded throughout the house. Due to his extremely low blood pressure he sometimes passes out when he simply stands up from a chair, the toilet, or the bed and when this happens my Type A Personality husband feels worthless and like an invalid. His depression skyrockets.
But in order to become well, my husband needs to create a vision and work toward it until he is victorious. One problem… this is NOT going to happen overnight! Somehow we have to come up with a plan to help prevent more of his falls. I especially worry that when we move into the apartment, that if my husband passes out in the tiny bathroom that he will do more injury to himself or kill himself as when he falls he could hit his head or neck on the bathtub or the corner of the bathroom counter. Of course, maybe the small size of the room will force him to simply slide down the bathroom wall.
How do I place things strategically in the bathroom so my husband doesn’t hurt himself? We will have some planning to do!
Tomorrow we head to the apartment so that my husband and I can put our heads together to create a strategic plan to prevent him from hurting himself. My vision is that we work so that my husband does not pass out again. Fortunately, he doesn’t pass out frequently, less than he used to, but his falls are increasing a tad bit again. So we need to create tiny steps so that my husband can move forward in his goal to become healthy again. His Victory!
However, I’m learning that with all my visions for success and victory for my husband that my brain is fried to the point of vacancy. Plus, with the move, I’m praying that the house magically becomes vacant and that I can stop running items to the apartment. My Vision for Victory is a Vacation!!
