Purpose...

Hello my beautiful Blogland, 

source
So even though I only worked several hours a week I kind of feel like my purpose has gone... just vanished. I don't mean on the bigger scale of like life I just mean generally because now I don't have to get up in the morning so my current sleeping pattern is me sleeping in a lot later than I normally would. Although all that being said I do make sure I get up for the tennis at the moment but what happens when Wimbledon finishes what do I have to get up for?

You know those long time non-workers who just choose not to work simply because they are lazy, how the hell do they do it?! I honestly feel like my purpose has flown out of the window. I know I was only a sales assistant but I liked my job and the people I worked with. I really hope my transplant happens soon so I can get back to it even if it is for only a little while while I figure out life's much bigger question of what do I want to do or be?

I'm trying to see all this free time as a opportunity to do things I just don't know what type of things I should be doing? Anyone have any suggestions? I should be organised and make a list and tick them off as I go. Although at the moment I can only think of things I can do post transplant. I'm still desperate to go to Wimbledon though... always wanted to see a Wimbledon final. How on earth do you get tickets to do that though?! Anyone?! 

I will have to think up some things and get back to you guys and if you want to make any suggestions of things I can do in my not so great pre-transplant body that would be awesome :-D 

Chat soon guys

  1. How about a picnic, or baking day with family? A movie marathon would be good, or a short trip somewhere fun? I'm not sure how you are with your illness, but when I was chronic with my FMS and fatigue the little things were a great joy to me. xx

  3. Hey stacie
    I've found your blog through htf- I'm 27 & had a heart transplant jean this year. I had a long hospital stay so my recovers been slow. As I type this I am in bed about to have a nap :) I get where you are with the amount you can do - I've lots of free time and not loads of energy to use with it. At the moment I write to friends and have got a bit obsessed with craft. My fam and bf are also using me as their personal shopper as I love finding the perfect things in the net for gifts or whatever. I'm quite weak so sometimes I go on a trip into town & go to one shop, then have a coffee and come back. There's a yoga class I hope to go back to soon for fatigue. It's all floor exercises and more about relaxation than exercise but you get a really good stretch! And it's social too. Well this has become an epic post but I hope it helps, rach xx

    1. I think it's going to give me the opportunity to see more of my friends so I can go out for coffee with them and hat type of stuff :). I hope your recovery improves I can't how hard it must be as much as I try and prepare myself I suppose it won't ever prepare me for the real thing.
      Sending lots of love
      Stacie xoxo

    2. Don't worry if you're anything like me you'll just get on with the recovery without muh of a second thought! I ended up sedated for a month and had to learn how to walk again etc so please don't worry you'll be in my situation! Take care and do whatever you can that you can enjoy even if it's small xx

  4. I always wish I had more free time so I could do all the things I want to, but I bet if I had unlimited free time, I would feel exactly as you do right now. It does sound very tough to have to leave work, but it sounds like you made the right decision.
    How about doing a bit of freelance writing? You already run a successful blog, and you could just commit to as much as you feel able to do. Or if you're interested, there are lots of free online courses that mean you wouldn't be doing too much but would keep your brain working a bit - the one name that comes to my head is Coursera. Or maybe just try taking up a new hobby that doesn't put too much strain on you such as sewing?
    Hope some of this helps :) xx

    1. Aww thank-you Sian, it has been a very hard decision for me I've been making it for about a year with persuasion from my doctors my body just seems to have finally said enough.

      I've never really thought of myself as writer but that sounds like a cool idea. I'll have my uni module starting u again in October so I suppose I just have to keep myself busy until then. I love the idea of a new hobby though I should start researching things for me to do :)

      Thank-you
      Stacie xoxo

  5. I've been unable to work or study for nearly three years & I have to agree, you feel completely purposeless. Blogging has helped, it gives me something I have to do. Other than that, you just have to make yourself keep doing things, it's the only way.
    Good luck getting used to it, it's NOT an easy transition but sometimes it is the only option....
