This may or may not be progress....It's cold and frigid here in Boston. But entering my car and waiting for the heat to get warm made me FEEL the warmth of the heat contrasting with the outside temperatures. For YEARS when this time of year comes around - Yeah, I knew the heat was on and I knew it was cold outside - but my body would still not FEEL the warmth and enjoy it.
What I would do is intellectualize it thinking, ok the heat is coming from the engine and blowing through the vents, and so what? It's still cold outside, what if my heat didn't work, what if I had to walk in the freezing air, what if I didn't have a car. what if, what if what if, what if...
But tonight driving home I enjoyed the physical FEELING of just being in the hot car.
Progress? Can anyone relate???
