How is Dementia is Like Mining for Gold?
Dementia is Like Mining for Gold.
If you don’t make a conscious effort to sift through the sand you won’t find the gold.
Sometimes with dementia you have to look past the obvious,
and let your old thought patterns go.
You have to release your need for control and
become flexible and spontaneous.
You have to be willing to get down and dirty with the disease
and play with new rules.
By letting the obvious slip through the cracks,
you can find new value before you.
As you rinse away the structure
you thought was hold things together;
you find a brilliance that was hidden by your beliefs.
Just a thought…..
