The wife and I are having a tough time right now. With that running in the back of my mind all the time, there’s not much enjoyable right now.
So I’m sitting at a football game looking around thinking “how many of these smiling, happy folks out here are in the same place I am?”. And as I mentioned in a previous post, what bothers me is that life is dark and I’m sitting out here in the sun, watching football, and watching my daughter cheer….how is this congruent with the rest of my life? It ain’t…and I feel fake.
I’ve got to be careful because really it’s ok. If the darkness was absolute and there was no break, we’d never make it through life. Most people I know consider “breaks” as vacations and they certainly are but that can’t be the only break. 2, 3, or 4 times a year if you can afford it??? We’ve got to recognize breaks throughout the year, month, week, and day…then we have to soak them up.
My next break will be going home and fixing stuff around the house…..right. We’ll see how that works.
