Doing What Feels Right in Life
When work stress got too much, I took a step back from job coaching, and any government connection job. I went back to part time retail, and decrease my hours when I started receiving my share of military pension. I want to enjoy more of the single life.
When I was a teenager, waking up from sleep, a voice told me that I would have three children, a boy and 2 girls. I did that. It actually happened. It had been a question that I kept asking until I got this answer, and it actually happened. It happened with a man that was always told he would never father daughters. He ended up fathering two.
I plan to do more traveling. Finding historical places where my ancestors ended up. I find it interesting how long my ancestors have been in North America.
I have been working on my other relationships - with my mother. We plan shopping trips together. We each bought a fundraising card from my niece's school to dine at different places for different deals. We have started walking at a local park a couple times a week, an outing that my dog enjoys, as well. Mom has also been trying to get me to join her exercise group. I know that when my mother is gone I will be glad that I had this time with her, until the inevitable takes her away. Although, she appears to be in good health.
I have met my brother, and my niece at the movies a couple of times, before COVID disrupted our life. I have read many different books to my nieces. (Flat Stanley, Junie B Jones, and Jojo Siwa)
I have also been working on a relationship with God and myself. I have no problems dating myself. I take myself out to breakfast or dinner. Pick up take out for me and my parents. It doesn't take much for me to be happy. I am working on me. I enjoy being alone.
