Keep Buggering On!
11am - During the war years of 1939 to 1945, Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of England had a phrase that sustained him. It was:
“Keep buggering on!”
The nazis were threatening England with annihilation. And Churchill had to believe that what he was doing would bring victory over the rotten, stinking nazi hoard.
I have adopted this phrase, "Keep Buggering On" [KBO] for my own self. Because with aging has come a decline in physical and mental abilities.
I fall down. Yesterday while on the entrance stairs to Twayler, suddenly I found myself falling backwards. I tried to grab on to something. I found myself on the ground. Not hurt. Just a small gash on my left wrist.
I forget things. Sometimes things that I am thinking about become mysteriously cloudy. I cannot remember them. Maybe I just dreamed about this? I don’t know? So, I put these things out of my conscious mind.
Stuff that I am using, disappears. The 3M Nexcare tape that I blogged about yesterday just vanished. I searched everywhere. Nothing! So, I bought more on the net.
I must have faith that my abilities to handle my own affairs are in place. If I don’t have this confidence, what am I to do? Stop doing things? Just sit around and do nothing?
NO! I will continue to plan what I do with the confidence that it will all be OK. And if it doesn’t turn out OK? I’ll deal with that the best I can.
Whatever…… I will “Keep buggering on!” [KBO]
