Since losing my oldest son 10 1/2 years ago, I have been very aware of a part of me that “holds back”.
It’s this small part deep inside. It doesn’t hurt. It just exists.
This morning, I began getting back into my walking routine. Wildflowers swayed in the meadows along the road. So calming to the soul!
I walked by several clumps of daisies. Hmm. I remember long ago, picking them and putting them in a vase on the table. But today, that small part of me kept holding me back.
But then I made a decision to pick them, even when I didn’t want to.
I can’t tell you that suddenly the heavens opened up and I felt incredibly wonderful.
Instead, I felt contentment.
Contentment is underrated. We think we’re always supposed to be happy .. on top of our game .. riding a wave of accomplishment.
And if we aren’t, something is wrong.
Do something you don’t feel like doing today.
