How My Plumber Gets Me to the Gym

30-Day Self-Care Challenge (Part II) Day 8

I haven’t had a shower in my own home for a week!  I won’t give you the boring details about why it’s taken this long to get my plumbing fixed…but not being able to take a shower has driven me to the gym on a consistent basis.  And that’s a good thing.  If you have trouble getting to the gym, maybe you could work a deal with your plumber.

Today when he didn’t arrive on time, I called and learned that had an emergency with water pouring through the ceiling of some unfortunate soul’s home.  Maybe I should share my secret with these home owners…of how to get their bodies to the gym :)

Silly stuff I know.  But can you see that there are layers of self-care fodder here?  I’ve had to be creative in getting my needs met for a shower.  I’ve had to keep my spirits up by finding a workable solution.  And I’ve stayed calm knowing that everything will work out–it always does.

    It’s all about reframing the challenging parts of our lives and you’re doing that really well!

    I think I would DIE if I couldn’t shower at home, but you know what? I’d get over it and adapt, just like you did.

    Rock on!

  2. Hey Lena – My showers have been feeling so great! I love looking at my new faucets–we replaced both the shower and sink. Clean, new….and they work! Cheryl
