Odd shaped puzzle piece
Saturday, July 11, 2020
Good morning friends.. after a solid day of torrential rains and heavy winds and dark gloomy skies, the sun is shining brightly today. I have barely moved the past two days.. I have been a total slug.. but my eating is back on track and the scale is sliding downward.. so there's that.
I just went in and tracked 8 weeks worth of miles on my spreadsheet I am keeping for a challenge I entered the beginning of the year 2020 miles in 2020.. total miles for the day, not specific miles (for runobx).. As I entered in this information, it occurred to me, or rather in reinforced something I know.. I am not a good joiner.. I'm more like Lenny from Laverne and Shirley (L)one wolf.
I love people and interacting with others, but I always feel like that odd shaped puzzle piece, the one that looks like it belongs here, no over there or no maybe it goes there.. and you try it out and it sort of fits, but there are gaps or it is just too big.. and finally when the puzzle is almost complete there is one spot left and lo and behold.. it is just right or is it, perhaps this piece doesn't go with this puzzle at all, perhaps it is a lost piece from another puzzle that ended up in the wrong box? .
Throughout my life, this has been the case.. I never really found my just right - or I hadn't..
I can't explain it, during this time when the world is in such turmoil and people are facing the most trying times (us included) I have this sense of peace. I am owning my piece and I am able to place it gently into its proper place and I love what I see..
Going to go take a walk and enjoy some more quiet time this morning.. my son, DIL and grandson will be here around noon.. We are ordering sandwiches from the local deli and just going to hang around inside in the air conditioning with Ryder and family.. Yeah, my puzzle is a beautiful picture!
Have an amazing day! I hope your picture becomes clear and you are happy with what you see as well. If not, don't be afraid to move those pieces around!~
