As I sit here this morning before Karen’s even up, I have a lot on my mind.
Truth be told, it’s a little stressful.
I’ve never been a “do as I say, not as I do” kind of guy. So I’m doing my best to work through this carefully. Set goals. Evaluate the pros and cons.
And continue to breathe in, breathe out…
But the fact is, it’s likely the Reagan’s are on the move.
When you’re part of a “sandwich” part of life, with kids (albeit older ones) and aging parents, it’s undoubtedly tough.
Who should be your focus? And how do you choose?
Lately I’ve been wrestling with the possibility of a move to Florida.
Yes, I know all the jokes. And even the residents there can’t deny, Florida has a reputation for the bizarre.
There’s gators, pythons, hurricanes… heck, one of the places I’m looking at just had a kangaroo on the loose.
But it’s also where Karen’s parents are now. And they’re not getting any younger.
In fact, they could use some help.
In a way, what I’m going through underscores a lot of what I tell you each day. You need to take control of your health, prioritize doing good by your body, and don’t be afraid to ask for help if and when you need it.
From family, your doctor, clergy, even your kids… wherever and whoever can give you a boost.
But sometimes you’re on the receiving end of the call.
You learn a lot about yourself if you decide to listen… and what you decide to do once you hang up the phone.
That’s what I wrestle with today. And I’ll be honest – it helps just to write it down and share it.
Maybe I’ve taught myself something today too.
I’ll keep you posted.
