This country person does enjoy being outside and doing what she wants to do, but lately I have not felt good....now saying I have exaspcerbated asthma....wow. It has kept me coughing and wheezing and using lots of different things to be able to breath and sleep. I am getting better but it is a slow process. With this process is frustration and gratitude also. Frustration that I cannot go to exercise at the YMCA or go lots of places because I am tired. Gratitude because I am getting better. I am also getting better with my plans for simplifying my life again. I get out of balance sometimes and this setback has made me think about it. I have been going too much, three times a week to exercise. I don't like being away from home, my country life, my dogs, and my many hobbies an activities I enjoy. In fact, I recall telling my daughter that I need to find balance again.
It was put to me in health issues. But now, just today I made many decisions. I again got out my yoga things in the corner of the basement where I used to have a yoga area. I also cleared off some of the storage shelves with excess items, boxed and in the jeep to go to thrift shop for donation. I talked to my dogs, especially Hemingway, and told them I would be home with them more. I can exercise at home, and I can stop paying the YMCA monthly and running three times a week. When I don't feel well, I can slow down my workout, I can walk more and do more yoga when I am doing well. Little by little it will balance out while I enjoy my country home more and more.
Today I brought my quilt up to my sewing area and am ready to machine quilt it. I actually felt better physically with decisions and actions made. I feel like I can finish projects, be home, and more true to myself with what I want....Simplify....Simplify....and enjoy this country home and country living. Gratitude for being sick to slow me down so I can find a better and straighter path for being ME.
