Helping my Mum with her puzzles as a child is a happy memory, I would be in awe as to how quickly she would find the pieces and put them in their space. She would casually place a piece next to a gap in the puzzle for me to add, so I could feel the sense of achievement, a gesture I have followed when my children help me now.
As a Mum and business owner, “wasting time” on a jigsaw puzzle is rare and usually only enjoyed during the Christmas holidays or when all my jobs are done, are they ever done? These were my own restrictions as I would feel guilty that I could be spending this time on Mum Stuff or Making Money.
Until chatting to a lady a few days ago (who I found out is a fellow puzzler, yay!) we were talking about the things we would do if we had the time, I explained my guilt when thinking about doing a jigsaw and she simply said “Why do you like them so much” after a bit of thought I said “Well, it relaxes me, I love the sense of organisation and achievement, my mind gets taken away, I feel happy”.
She casually said “Do you know how much a therapist would charge to make you feel those things?” I laughed as I knew exactly what she meant! What a Gem to carry with me.
If you are wondering, Yes, the lady I was speaking to is a Therapist. I could tell you so many “gems” she has given me.
