Looking For Bookending Buddies To Check-In Or Co-Work With
I was looking through past posts & saw one that really spoke to me so I paraphrased & co-opted the title of it. A couple nights ago I had 3 wake up calls in two nights. Also, 4 in the last week. Then I got to really thinking about it & there have been 10 in the past seven months. Nothing earthshaking, but still significant. I will tell you about the last three.
#1) My washing machine starting leaking. I don't know where, I think it is just old. Of course, I'd neglected to do the washing in quite some time & the laundry needed doing ASAP.
#2) I discovered that my driver's license - which I had renewed three months late mind you, was temporary, issued for only a month & was also seven months expired (now eleven months total).
#3) My tooth, which intermittently had bothered me, hurt so bad I could barely carry on a conversation. I remember times where I would rub aspirin into my chipped crown, curl up into the fetal position while running a fever, and wonder if I would have to resort to "home dentistry".
Now, I know that all of these things even taken together are not on a level with say Hurricane Sandy, a cancer diagnosis, or being evicted. However, they are (along with many, many other things) starting to snowball on me.
I would very much like to, actually, I desperately NEED to start taking care of these issues as they are making life much more difficult, expensive, & complicated (not to mention literally painful) by the day. Even if I can't fix them at least I would be in a better position to deal with them.
I said all that to say I think God is trying to wake me up. Certainly, waking up has got to be better than all these wake up calls, right? The only question is, which pill do I take - the red one or the blue one? I forgot which was which.
Anyway, I'm currently unemployed (partly due & not due to procrastination) so my schedule is pretty much wide open. Also, I'm flexible with frequency & manner of check-ins. FYI - I prefer more often & phone calls, but that is not absolutely necessary. I'm fairly new here so I'm still trying out all the tips, tools, & techniques. I would love to give accountability partnerships a try.
If not now, when?
