To be honest, I’m not really that good at taking time or resources for myself.
That’s just the truth plus I’ve been making attempts to change all that. It’s as though I have a default behavior that sets most people and their needs ahead of our own. The local cannabis spot is helping me to see that, plus to actively do the things that help bring joy plus balance to our life. It’s strange that it has taken this long for me to realize that I’m really pressing to just me. But I was raised to take care of the family. And then, when I had a family of our own, their needs just came first. I didn’t mind all that as I loved raising our teenagers. The stuff with our parents plus siblings is what I could do without. I never even used recreational marijuana until the teenagers were in school. Whenever I had been given cannabis products, I demured because I wasn’t so sure how I’d act. And being 100% in control was all the rage then. But I finally gave in on a kids weekend with our friends. They used some hybrid strains that the two of us could smoke however it was the cannabis edibles that I found to be most elegant. I liked that with the edibles, the feeling came on slow plus sort of stayed with me. I just felt so relaxed plus finally aware of our deepest feelings plus thoughts. It really was an epiphany. So now that the local cannabis spot has started a cannabis cafe, I make sure I schedule a Dunkin Donuts Latte plus a shared edible with an old pal at least once a week.
