I hope you are basking in happy memories of whatever July 4th festivities you enjoyed. Over the years, July 4th has become my “Ides of March,” so I approach this time of year with care.
This year I decided to just focus on doing things I enjoyed for the four days I had off. No reflection on past experiences, no dip in the pity pool — just being and doing the things I wanted to do. I set my path to write, clean/de-clutter, work in the yard, and spend time with the doggies. I sort of hit the mark on everything but the cleaning thing!
So over the last week — I hit all my happy spots. The doggies all came through safe and sound. Tomorrow it is back to reality … but I am working to figure things out and move forward — and Ike is learning to catch a ball and return it … young and old – trying to learn new tricks!
