Acceptance is Key
I am 59 and have had macular degeneration in both eyes for several years, starting with dry in my 40s.
Letting go of perfection
I am an art teacher and have always had a passion for art, understandably this came as a challenge to accept. I had to shift my vision which was no easy task and did take time to master. I tried to embrace it by letting go of perfection and the small details that life handed over each and every day.
Finding things I can get lost in
I make an intentional shift to do things that I don't have to focus on as much and get lost in the creativity of it. I found peace within myself. One-on-one with special friends, potting quirky ideas with plants. Painting but letting go.
Just a small insight into my story.
