I find it so interesting how I can be lulled into a familiar, bi-weekly routine.
It seems as though I can simply just roll through the afternoons and evenings without genuinely paying attention to what is.
I am someone who needs to be in the moment a bit more! But, just like most of us, I get so caught up with the pace of life and everything that’s expected of me. I do my best but, a bit of a wake up call can add some perspective. Our Heating & Air Conditioning failing a few weeks ago sure did the trick for me. The middle of summer time is not when you want the Heating & Air Conditioning to go out, I can assure you. However, I came back to our beach apartment one evening and opened the door to a beach apartment that was as hot inside as it was outside! And I could tell right away that the Heating & Air Conditioning had not been on for most of the afternoon. So I checked the power and all the other things that I knew how to check. But, there just wasn’t anything that was out of the ordinary that I could see except that the Heating & Air Conditioning was off. It was after hours and so I decided to call the Heating & Air Conditioning people the next morning. It was a very hot evening, however, it was about to get warmer. The Heating & Air Conditioning tech came the next afternoon. After a short inspection, they said that they could repair the Heating & Air Conditioning. But, it would be a few afternoons before they would be able to get a specialized part. When I broke the news to my family, they just wanted to go stay in a hotel. That stunned me! We couldn’t rough it for a few days? How spoiled we are!
