I’ve been avoiding posting for the last few days. It is partly because I’ve been parenting solo longer than expected and have been too busy. It is partly because I have reached the stage where I want to broach the spiritual aspect of coming to terms with cancer (a big topic that seems daunting). Mostly it’s because I have been trying to practise what I preach.
I have been purposely living more gratefully. I like the result. It’s helping me see beyond the moment to the bigger picture and the true blessings in my life. The day the van battery died (thanks to a very helpful Little Dude who ‘cleaned’ the driver’s seat while I vacuumed the van, turning on the interior lights in the process) I could have focused on the frustration… instead I found myself grateful for a friend who would drive across town to help – the fact that I had also fit into a size six pair of jeans that morning didn’t hurt my feeling of well being either!
I will get back to regular postings but, for now, I’m enjoying where this journey is taking me.
