is sometimes one of the hardest things to do.
Maybe it is a day.
Or a week.
Or possibly several weeks.
It shouldn’t be that difficult, but it is.
It requires focus, dedication, ambition and the willingness to wash away everything that has built in the past days, weeks, or even a month.
I’m not sure I’ve ever gone a month without showering, but I not positively certain.
What I know for a fact is that I showered tonight.
Super hot water and excellent Eucalyptus soap given to me by a dear friend.
Managed to shave my legs and stuff.
Quite a feat as that hasn’t been done since last December.
Did you note the song title?
Obviously, I have had multiple showers in the past year, but they are hard.
I love being clean.
I love my very awesome Eucalyptus soap.
I want to smell wonderful and yet there is this thing.
I know, on some level, I have friends.
I love my friends.
I love my family.
But when I am at home, with my dog Murphy, I get to be me.
I get to clean house when I feel like it.
Dust when I want, vacuum when the dog hair takes over my house and shower when I feel like it.
It took me a while to realize it, but my life if perfect for me.
I did all the crazy stuff early and got it out of the way, and now I’m sitting beside my dog looking at a three day weekend.
I think I may get a haircut tomorrow because my hair is clean from my long, hot shower.
