Sorting It All Out...

A Dilemma...a decision. One one hand I have some things I could do today. I need a haircut, I need a couple of things from the store, I could stop by the PO (Post Office Box)and I'd like to stop and see some buddies who are in recovery in town. But none of these are things that are critical...they could all easily been accomplished tomorrow or the next day.

On the other hand, yesterday was my first day where I was really out of the house and I'm a bit weary after all that activity in one single stretch. So I have to make a decision. Pay forward a little bit, take the day and just relax. I do have a church picture appointment at 2p so just do that and relax about the rest of my day.

I realize this sound a bit ridiculous to be posting about but it's more significant then it appears. In the past I was always making poor choices about things, including my daily schedule and my health. I never built relaxation time into my day and I think it's important to do so.

But my nature is too push "I'm feeling pretty darn good today so I need to keep it going, I should do this and that, etc, etc..." So it is a dilemma. Now i could decide right now to take the day for myself, stay home, go for a walk and yes, rest but then I would debate the decision for the rest of the day in my head...It's crazy!

The one thing I have going for me here is time. It's early in the day and I happen to have a couple of hours where I could walk, eat and rest a bit plus then go into town to do a couple of those things I mentioned. I do not need to do them all today...But it is something I have to actually CHOOSE to do and then discipline myself about to stick with the plan.

So that's what I am going to do right now, pull on some sweats, get my walking shoes on and go for a bit of a stroll to clear my head and my lungs...
