3.3 Think - Mindful Work

Bestest Friend and I are in the middle of a blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the third day of each month is "Think."
I wonder what the cat thinks when she sees my sewing machine set up. I have only pulled it out a handful of times in places where she can see it.  I can’t imagine she thinks humans are anything but ridiculous with the fabric they use to hide their hairless bodies.
For the last two months, it seems like there has just been a series of unfortunate events within relationships of people I know. The breakups, in particular, have made me reevaluate my own relationship with my husband. Part of why we work is that we don’t do everything together. I sometimes travel on my own or with friends without him. We don’t exercise together. This afternoon he went into the office, shut the door, and played his guitar, and I played with my sewing machine.
But will that distance mean that at some point I will wake up and he will tell me that he wants to leave? Will I someday realize I have let him down? Or he has let me down? I hope not. I hope that instead our separate hobbies, friends, and interests will give us more to talk about when we are together. I hope it allows us to develop as independent people. I hope it allows us to be stronger in the end.

To see what Bestest Friend wrote about the theme of the day, check out her blog, Too Legit to Quit.

  1. One of the things I can't ever get across to my friends and family when they have a fight is the fact that when you are together 24 hours a day you CANNOT get along. Something is bound to cause friction. I don't understand people who get upset when their boyfriend/wife/etc. does something on his or her own. It's necessary. I mean, as long as you do things together, too, and have a healthy balance.
