The last couple of days have not been the greatest.
I’ve been at the hospital with my father who….regardless of being very ill….has managed to make his daughters laugh their booties off.
Right now, he’s sleeping and I’m sitting here beside him writing this blog post. I’ve thought about writing it a few times today, between his naps and tests, etc., but I couldn’t come up with anything and had pretty much decided to just skip today….even though I made a NY’s resolution to myself to do it regularly.
But then….my dad looked at me…sick and pitiful and tired, with nurses galore poking and prodding and sticking him with needles…and said…’I’d be so much better if I could go home. This is messing everything up.’
Then…he added that he was going to ‘Give that doctor a piece of my mind because he’s trying to kill me.’
The point…is that life get’s in the way of our plans sometimes…no matter what your endeavors may be. Writing…blogging…taking a nap…spending time with your kids…taking a walk on the beach…or like my dad…just going through his regular routine.
If you can name it…Life can screw it up….throw a wrench in things.
And if you’re a goal setter…or love routine…or need schedules to make yourself stick to things…LIFE can be the biggest deterrent.
That’s why I’m blogging tonight…though I’m tired and slightly delirious and worried this blog may be unreadable and make absolutely no sense. I made a promise to myself to blog and write every day…and though I wouldn’t beat myself up if this post didn’t get completed…because life has most definitely gotten in the way today… it feels good to say that I didn’t let myself down.
I wish all of you luck on your own goals…and remember…when LIFE becomes an immovable object…YOU can become an unstoppable force.
I must go now…
My father is shaking a fist at the beeping IV and threatening to kill it….
