Time is a precious thing. How I spend mine is very intentional.
I try to dedicate as much time as possible to people but we all need time alone. Note: Alone time is not sitting on the couch watching TV.
I spend a large lump of time walking, practicing yoga, and meditating. All of these provide much satisfaction but they can be taxing on my body and brain.
An easy, no thinking necessary, solo activity, that I love-love-love is taking a bubble bath.
Yesterday the weather was finally cool enough for me to spend time soaking in my bathtub. It is ultimate relaxation for me. Made even better when I have bath treats from Lush.
Finding activities that are truly fulfilling can be a struggle. Once you find them though, you will wonder how you ever managed without them.
Another crazy idea would be to take a leisurely drive to old school Carson Hot Springs and take a sulfur filled mineral bath and wrap. Rather like a sweat lodge with towels and 1920’s plumbing. I’ll take you if you wish to go some day. Let me know.
Sounds kind of fun… I’m in!
Dearest Kim, We are about to leave for a week in London, Ont. for a week with Cristin and the girls. After that we will go to Ireland and Scotland for 16 days. I can’t believe it either. Closer to home you continue THE battle of all battles. And yet, you understand that life goes on for the rest of the world…how odd that must be! We are only a heart beat away from our own fate. I wish that we had same insight into the day to day struggles that you face, but I don’t think that we ever really would truly understand,and God help us all if we really realized that tomorrow would be the end for us. You would never hear a more bitchy or angry group, and so we go about our lives…hoping the pale horse and rider pass us by just awhile longer. I admire the path you have taken living a life as full as it can be off while facing the unknown. Love you girl, and stay with the days ahead full of life. If I could be there, I would give you a hell of a hug and tell you how much you stand out in a world that half the time is a mystery to the to rest of us. I am always thinking of you but I have to admit that at times I say to myself, “Shit, this is so unfair.” Will keep you up to date when we return. Love, M.E.
