Happy Monday! I had a couple cancellations this morning in my office so was able to dig in the dirt prior to beginning my day. After a busy weekend, having this time to plant a few flowers and get my feet and hands in the dirt felt so great! Steve and I walk around our yard in the spring and he helps me visualize where everything is so I can form an idea of what I want to plant where. He also (since one year learning that I had missed out on some blossoms on our trees)he lets me know when something is in bloom. Cricket also loved the time to enjoy some sunshine before office time.
I am reminded each day in my work as a therapist - specializing in grief and loss the preciousness of each day and not get buried in stuff and busyness. I enjoyed these simple reminders . Sometimes I feel like I am doing my tasks slower these days and they are taking longer - in an adjustment phase of making the necessary accomodations for added vision loss. Taking the time and enjoying the journey helps me have a greater perspective. Enjoy the journey - interestingly the 'journey' literally of getting to the destination is something I have to consider multiple times each day. How am I getting to work today? What is the best route to take to this meeting? The journey is such an adventure with Cricket .. ah, a hole in our regular pathway.
Good girl as we stop.. pause.. acknowledge the obstacle..celebrate with a kibble..and move forward. Isn't this what we do often throughout our day whether it is a hole in the sidewalk or another challenge in the way. What brings peace and simplicity in your life?
