Well, I’ve been talking about it for a year, and I finally did it – cancelled my cable TV! I will go “offline” on Thursday because I wanted to have time to catch a few more episodes of Dancing With the Stars before I learn a new way to watch TV. But I think I just won’t watch much TV anymore. We’ll see. But seriously, the money I save will make up for it. My DirecTV bill was $170 per month! Now I’ll just be paying a total of around $30 a month for HULU, Netflix and Amazon Prime. That’s a $140 saving every month! I am excited!!! And I just realized, as I was typing this, that I can still catch Dancing with the Stars on my local channels, which are FREE. Just like it was when I was growing up.
I went to Tai Chi this morning and on the way I was thinking of all the big changes that have happened in my life in the past couple of years, such as brain surgery, husband’s passing, kids moving away, kids getting married, new job, house remodel…. And I thought, one thing I really like about Tai Chi is that I have been doing it through all these changes and it provides stability. No matter what, I go to Tai Chi 4 days a week. That remains the same. I have met some great people and made friends. When I walk in the door I feel accepted and cared about. It has really helped me get through these changes. During each session I invite myself into the present moment and all my cares and concerns drift away for an hour. I’m so glad I discovered this retreat. Plus it’s great exercise and as I age I need to work harder to stay in shape. I wonder what else in my life I could give up like cable TV and embrace more meaningful, fulfilling activities like Tai Chi?
