I can do anything for 15 minutes…..
Sometimes that means that at the end of 15 minutes I immediately start another 15 minutes. It takes 5 of those sessions to drive from home to the big city, did I mention I hate to drive, especially in the big city? Doing it 5 days a week is a challenge, but my new 15 minute rule is helping immensely!
One of the reasons I have to play mind games with myself is because I am spoiled rotten! Since 2004 when I quit my 8 to 5 J O B…I have had the luxury of becoming the hermit I always wanted to be. I love being at home! So, coming out of my very comfortable zone requires me to fool myself into doing what has to be done.
For me, being at home is like being constantly hugged. It is the most peaceful, loving, happy place I have found on this planet. I am very thankful, at this time of what, for me, is a great challenge that I have this refuge to come back to and recharge. No, home is not the house we live in, it is where ever my husband is. When we are together, that is home.
On days like today, he will be making this daily journey with me and it will be an easy, happy day. Wednesdays are chemo day, the long day for my Mom at the cancer center. I am thankful that for her she has no real concept of time, that she isn’t in pain and that we are able to see that she has what she needs.
I am thankful that life has given me exactly what I need at the precise time I need it most. It is a sad time of worry, anxiety and uncertainty offset by family, love and strength from above!
Grace and Peace for strength to face today….
