I think this habit is going to be good for me- more of a change in attitude than anything. I made time for some things I had wanted to do. Just a few minutes each- but they made a difference in my day. First, I called my college room mate, whom I had not talked to in months. I called her while I was at work. Sure it slowed me down a few minutes, but in the long run, it was so nice to hear her voice, it was well worth “running late.”
Then I read a book for a few minutes before I had to pick Cait up from a friend’s house. I could have run around for the 10 minutes but decided to rest instead. I am reading Pamela Weintraub’s Cure Unknown. It is eerie reading it- like someone has been looking into my life 😀 But it is also frustrating to see how long this divisiveness in the Lyme Community has been going on.
Anyway, it was a good feeling that I was taking care of myself. I always take care of others first, so this was a welcome change.
