I have options. I could opt out of writing this weekend. In another hour I should be dressed and ready to leave for a short weekend trip with my girls. But. I’ve taken quite a few sabbaticals of late. Indiscipline and procrastination, like everything else, can very easily become a habit. Habits are hard to break; bad habits are especially hard to break. And I live to prove that.
The week was good. We narrowly escaped a super cyclone which mellowed and passed through as a regular cyclone. Lots of wind and rain leaving behind some battered trees and damaged property, but thankfully no loss of life. Personally, we got off real easy. Didn’t even loose power. And are now enjoying some lovely weather. While we don’t do thanksgiving, I will say despite the shitty year its been, I do still have a lot to be thankful for. Good health, an extra year of having my son at home, and the time to do some major introspection and reach some decisions which I hope are the right ones.
At any rate, its better to take a decision and live through the repercussions of those decisions, than to exist in limbo.
So happy thanksgiving everyone. My shower beckons me. Chao.
