“Route recalculating. Please proceed to the highlighted route.” I don’t know how many times my GPS has told me that when I’ve missed an exit, gotten locked into a lane by traffic, or construction moves the exit/ road I’m searching for. This time, however, it was my own internal, mental GPS that continued off course, despite the pleadings to make a safe U-turn and proceed to the highlighted route.
I’ve been away from so much that I enjoy doing, and take solace from! Things that help clear my crazed, cluttered, confused, and weary mind. This journaling, blogging, creating, writing has just been pushed aside while I celebrated family, moved family in with me, had surgery, worked like crazy, and made so much other stuff, and many other people, priorities over myself. I don’t begrudge any of it, by the way, I just need to move myself up a little further on the list.
I need to find time (and energy) to step out and take a walk, or ride a bike. To do something to help bring my body back to where it should be. I know the benefits I’d gain physically, but I tend to discount the mental benefits as well.
I know I can’t get there from here. Time to listen to the GPS and get back on the right road.
