I never wanted to be one of those people who wait until some personal disaster strikes to make much needed, long overdue change.
As of 10:28pm last night, I became that person.
First let me be clear…
I’ve been taking pretty good care of myself & my life.
Making progress, even if slow.
Keeping up with personal maintenance…
There has however been one thing, one person who represents a ticking time bomb in my life –
As I was startled out of sleep by a round of pre-midnight fireworks combined with unusually unsettling dreams, my body trembled.
I reached for the phone to check the time. As my eyes began to focus in, I noticed a text from my mother which feed the fear already burning inside.
Mother is in a precarious situation in three areas of her life:
– Her health
– Her business
– Her home
Each could explode at any time.
If & when they do, I (as an only child) will be charged with cleaning up the mess.
And for the longest 30 minutes of my life, I was preparing to do just that.
