I had this realization this morning. I went to the post office and then decided to go out to “Daddy’s Park” (according to MM), where we drove down to a beach (except for there is no water in the lake, so its just more of a sand pit now) and I took the dog for a run and wandered around while MM gathered sticks and played in the sand and BB slept in the car (we didn’t go very far away so I could keep an eye on him).
I know I need to exercise the dog and exercise myself, but I haven’t figured out a consistent way to do so. I’m not up to going on a walk every morning when I have to get the kids ready and myself ready and sometimes the dog gets overly excited. It can become too overwhelming for me. I could wake up early, except for sometimes BB doesn’t sleep well and so I want any sleep I can get.
But as I was playing on the beach I realized–this works for today. I always try to find things that will ALWAYS work for me, whether it’s a system for goal setting or cleaning or a way to exercise or a good routine. But I never figure out something that ALWAYS works, and sometimes it’s frustrating.
Today I realized that things don’t always have to work. I can just find a solution for today, and that’s enough. I don’t have to find a solution for every day in the future. I can just concentrate more on now and realize that each day is different and I’m going to have to live each day a little differently. What works for today may not work for tomorrow, and that’s okay.
And I have some photos I took about a month ago (or even longer back) that I never got posted, but I want to share them anyway, so here you go.
