I was driving home thinking about how my life will be different after this challenge is over. A calvalcade of thoughts entered my mind.
My inner voice was saying that’s crazy. Why are you having these thoughts when it has only been 6 days? Which led me to the following question and answer session:
(Q) Does that mean you will miss this?
(A) I think I may go through a bit of withdrawal when it is over.
(Q)Does that mean this is taking up a considerable amount of time?
(A) It does take some time management, but I am not stressed about the amount of time because I choose how much time I spend. I find I linger as I write my post and recheck it to see if it makes sense. I linger reading other slicer’s posts. I eagerly respond to posts that I connect with, laugh about, or touch me. There are many.
(Q)Does this mean that you will feel lost/sad when this is over?
(A) It maybe bitter sweet. I know there is always next year to return and there is a weekly slice that I can join.
Conclusion: This journey is affecting me in ways that I did not expect. Life is good.
