A Trip to the Grocery Store

The other day, I had to go to the grocery store and it was cold and rainy.  It was the kind of cold, drizzly rain that seeps into the bones.  It seems to make me cold from the inside out.  The trip was a requirement or I would not have made it.

Since it was so bad out, I told myself that I could park in a closer spot.  I did not have to park in my favorite far away spot just this once.  I felt like I was being kind to myself rather than coping out.  Once I gave myself permission to park as close as I wanted, I felt a little better about getting out in the cold and damp.

I went to the store, parked, made my purchases and walked back to the car.  As I returned to the car, I realized, I'd parked in my favorite far away spot!  I had managed to forge my way through all of the 'bad' weather without a problem.  I was thrilled with myself.  I was so glad to  know that the 1000 mile challenge last year really paid off.

It is a habit now, in spite of myself!!!
