A life affirming trip to my local Subway.


Today started like any other day. I woke up and sat up in bed, while I watched television. Sadly, it's how I spend most of my Wednesdays. I'm not complaining. I'm use to it by now, but I do want to make a positive change. So, on that note, I went to the local Subway and bought myself a turkey sandwich. I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but it was a major accomplishment for myself. The whole process of getting ready to go outside is a difficult one, at least for me. Washing up, brushing my teeth, and getting dressed can be overwhelming. Also, depending on my mood, it often becomes a major chore to venture outside for the day. This morning I stepped outside and walked around the property that I live on. I noticed the birds, cows, and the horse next door. I embraced the whole scene. I was feeling alive again. After a few minutes of strolling, I got into my car and drove to Subway, in order to buy some lunch. The little interactions I get from the employees at the restaurant mean so much to me! To them, I'm sure I'm just another customer. I felt a sense of pride that I was able to accomplish something today. After arriving home, and finishing my sandwich, I felt a tinge of guilt. The reasoning behind the guilt was the fact that I spent money on myself. I don't have a lot of money to begin with, and I often wished I saved the money spent. I rather spend money on my son, to be honest. I know I have to treat myself sometimes, and this guilty feeling will subside. Who knew the simple act of going to Subway could mean so much?


If you have it in your heart to help me, please do. However, if you can't, I totally understand. I wouldn't want anyone helping me, if they weren't financially able. God Bless!
