A Fresh Start

I first created this blog a long time ago.  I promptly ignored it until now.  It’s really time for me to put ideas for the future on record which will help me achieve the goals making their way through my cluttered brain!

It really is very easy to put roadblocks ahead of our lives.  I know it’s an old saying and it is really true but I don’t want to be at the end of my life and regret what I haven’t done.  It is so easy to make excuses for not doing something. Sometimes there are valid reasons for not reaching out for a life goal.  Just be sure the reason is valid and not fear of failure.  The only real failure is not doing!

I, honestly, have used health as an excuse without looking into the possibilities for getting around my condition.  I have a pain disorder called Fibromyalgia–a serious case of it.  Since the introduction of Lyrica to my medical regime, my pain has been controlled amazingly!  I wish my pain managers had not assumed that it wouldn’t work because of many years of using opiates for relief.  When I moved close to my family I found an amazing doctor who decided to prescribe it for me.

I became so used to feeling terrible and a little disoriented from the opiates, that I pretty much determined that life would be very limited for the remaining years.  Over the years I also wound up with a hip that needs replacing, spinal stenosis,diverticulitis and type 2 diabetes.  Type 2 diabetes is completely controllable, as is diverticulitis.  injections relieve the spinal stenosis and I will receive a new hip in a few months, after I get my teeth all pulled.  NO MORE EXCUSES!

About Brocurt

I'm an independent Franciscan and was ordained a priest in Uraguay July 4, 2008. After several years of active service I became ill and became unable to fulfill my obligations as a priest. I have been retired since but due to better health am looking into the possibility of doing spiritual work and being an instrument of the Divine to bring love and compassion where ever I go. I DO have a lot of spiritual work I need to do on myself. I am not perfect and will never claim to be anything near perfection. I am al child of the Divine, as are all of us. My path is primarily liberal in nature, though I have conservative aspects as well. I feel that it is important to listen to what the Earth is telling us and we must start reevaluating our ideas of what constitutes a fulfilling life. We are vastly over-consuming the resources of our planet and we are despoiling it with pollutants in the air and chemicals in our soil that it is not able to repair by itself. The Climate is more bizarre than any time in recorded history and our oceans have become less able to sustain aquatic life which we need to feed us. Well, the problems are too vast to talk about here. Some of my blogs will show my point-of-view on many matters. Not that I am a vast warehouse of knowledge but I put information together with a hope that at least some of it is beneficial to others. I have decided to write about my upcoming journey to living a nomadic life. I hope to purchase a smallish travel trailer and a pickup truck capable of towing said trailer. I hope to encourage conversation with others and may find guidance from you and that my guidance may be helpful for you, as well. I am really looking forward to this process because I believe it will help to so make better decisions after more complete consideration of factors in to find a successful and fulfilling life. I hope everyone can find a way to live well on less. Our possessions hold us back and swallow up our resources, financial and psychological, so we would do well to change our ways. The adventure begins!
