Day 1,253 – Thankful for an Accidental Shuffle When I’m commuting to work I love reading audiobooks. It’s a great way to exercise my brain and expand my thinking while passing the time. During the day when I’m going on shorter jaunts it’s a lot more difficult to jump in and out of the audiobook. When I’m doing local driving I often jump to some tunes instead. Depending on the day there’s a wide variety of music you might find me listening to. I have a song in mind for some random reason, fire it up, turn it up, and then let it lead me into the next song. Today I
So scratch all that stuff above. That was my initial blog post. We were all chilling and doing our own things at home so I figured I’d write my post for the day. Part way through LuLu made it very clear she needed some snuggling from me. Shortly thereafter we opted for a game of cribbage as a family. Next thing I knew my laptop was folded up and we were moving furniture to have some fun as a family with everyone home tonight.
While the blog post I’d started was going to go in a slightly crazy direction showing how the Shuffle function is a metaphor to life it just didn’t feel right after enjoying family time on the couch playing cribbage. The time with my family was exactly what I needed and the additional snuggle time with LuLu was a pretty sweet bonus. I kind of felt like either of those should’ve been what I was blogging about today….
I’m often grateful for many things throughout the day and I start a mental blog post during the day. Sometimes it comes out as planned and other times they get completely scrapped for something else. I could either stick with the original post but then know there was something else I should have written about or throw the half (or more) finished original and go in a different, but possibly more right direction.
Today I’m thankful for those kind of days. How awesome to have a day when there are multiple things to be grateful for? Sure, sometimes it can feel weird to not finish a specific writing, but that’s so secondary to the fact that I’ve already spent a chunk of time being thankful for multiple things.
