If I Had More Time

The next question on my Journaling journey is “What would I do if I had more time?”. Always an interesting question, and it requires some serious thought to answer. Would I strive to be better at work to justify making more money so we could have nicer things? Would I decide to spend that extra time at home resting? Perhaps I would spend more time with my guitar? The possibilities are endless but the question seems to demand only one answer.

I would definitely spend that extra time at home with Hal and The Stooges because, without them in my life, I don’t even know if I would be alive. They are the center of things in my world and they deserve all the time and attention I can give to them. They provide me with everything I need to be alive. The love is unconditional and free-flowing in this household and that is the best feeling in the world. 

Thoughts On A Mental Health Day

     I woke up this morning and almost immediately I knew that I was going to call in sick. A sore throat and exhausted feeling are not the best ingredients for a productive day. 

     I checked the weather report and we are in for heavy rains and winds until afternoon when the skies are predicted to clear, and the temperatures will plummet. Thinking about traveling to the client’s office under those conditions gave me a headache and nausea. I signed onto my work laptop and submitted my schedule change for today and crawled back into bed with Hal The Cat. 

     Let the storms rage outside while I lay here safe and warm in bed, secure in the knowledge that I just gave myself a three-day weekend. I only wish I felt the physical equivalent of joy that I feel emotionally right now. I know that I am going to get some much-needed rest today and hopefully I’ll feel much better by this evening.
