The last time I ever saw Kelly, she had 37 days left to live.
I have been reading a book by Patty Digh called Life is a Verb which has various exercises to practice for 37 days. She wrote this book as her father in-law died 37 days after being diagnosed with lung cancer.
For my last 37 days that I will drive into the office, I am planning to.
1. Run for 37 minutes each morning before going to work. I hope this will give me a mental boost. I have always loved running early in the morning.
2. Reach out to at least one person each day at the office and have a conversation. Hopefully these conversations will not all be about me leaving. I have a tendency to withdraw as a way of protecting myself from being hurt.
3. Find one thing each day at work to be grateful for.
1. I ran for 37 minutes before work today.
2. I had a conversation with a colleague in the hallway. I could tell he wanted to say something to me. Most of my colleagues have been avoiding me. There is a lot of akwardness, stunned silence in our suite, in the hallways.
3. I got through the day today. I hope to find something better tomorrow.
