It's what I do. I drift.
Like a slow moving river, I drift along, avoiding obstacles.
I'm not the type to rush headlong towards a waterfall, make waves, get noticed.
I don't agitate, stirring up pots of trouble.
I'm more your laid-back, easy-going, take it as it comes type of person.
Hey, someone has to do it, the world already has plenty of movers and shakers.
I take the easy way. I do the simple things.
I'm organised, a place for everything and everything in its place.
Because life is simpler when things are where they belong.
Life is easy when I don't have to search for my keys; when the book or dvd I want is in its proper place on the shelf.
I make few commitments on my time, apart from necessary things like work, or medical appointments.
I don't fill my days with a minute by minute schedule.
This comes in handy on the odd occasion when someone says "do you want to....?"; if the suggested activity appeals to me I can say yes immediately.
I've been criticised now and then by people who say I'm a stay-at-home, a stick-in-the-mud, boring.
These critics make valid points, but I am who I am, I enjoy life enough without looking for extra excitement.
I'm a simple person with simple values, living quietly, happily.
I'm a river.
Drifting along, being there for the people who need me.
