Last week, I realized that I didn’t have my next Therapy appointment written down in my planner. Every Thursday I make my work plan for the week ahead and send it to my boss. So, I reached out to my therapist and asked her when my next scheduled appointment was. She messaged me back and said on the 20th at 4pm. Alright, sounds good! I didn’t need to worry about it in my weekly plans.
Fast forward to yesterday, I had a meeting at 3pm. When I got back to my phone from my meeting, I had a text and a missed call. Both from my Therapist. I picked up the phone and saw…”Are you on your way?” I messaged her right back and said, “You told me that it was on the 20th at 4pm.”
Then, I was like “Oh Great” I missed my therapy appointment, maybe I misunderstood what she sent to me. I scanned up higher on my text message just to make sure and this is what it said…
She messaged me right back and said “OH MY GOD”, I did write that. She then said, it didn’t even occur to me until right now, that today is NOT the 20th. I am so sorry. Then she went on to say, you do not have an appointment on the 20th, you had one today and one on the 27th. LOL….OK.
I messaged her back and said this ” Well, I will see you in 2 weeks. But, the good news is, everything is great is here.” She apologized again!
The truth is that sometimes I have things really weighing on my heart and taking their toll on me mentally. These things, I come to the couch ready to unload on her. I didn’t feel like that yesterday though. I feel the lightest I have felt in years.
Had we had therapy I would have shared with her all the amazing things about our vacation to Myrtle Beach. I would have shared with her the successes of Jordan’s dance recital and James’ baseball game. How it felt to have a conversation with my ex in-laws for the first time in 6 years. Lastly, how having 4 days away from my 3 year old actually made me appreciate him SO MUCH MORE since we got home! All GOOD things.
