I thought about not posting today. About beating myself up for not exercising and posting twice as much tomorrow.
But I’m all about honesty. And in my mind, what good is my blog if I’m not honest.
So, today I did not exercise. Certainly not in the sense of the planned out, well-executed 30 minutes of physical activity.
But I’m not sure if I sat down all day.
Lots of driving to and from today… and worrying in between.
To far-off emissions testing facilities– for my son’s car so that we can tag it– only to realize that they too are government offices and closed on Veteran’s Day. Lovely.
Answering work emails from my phone and crossing my fingers for a lack of typos. And making appointments for my Mom.
Lots of working on help for my oldest son who continues his battles with teenage life and angst. And driving him to and fro various appointments.
And his brother, the ever so patient one, to and fro his own activities and appointments, hoping his patience holds out.
Only to return late in the day, wiped. But grateful to be able embrace forgiveness of myself for not exercising, for not perfecting this whole life thing, and for just being. And breathing. And realizing that breathing is good. Damn good.
What do you forgive yourself for?
