1.8.15 Stop the World

Sometime you have to sit still to really see the world around you

Good evening readers!!

I read this in an article this past week and saved it. It comments the following:

“It’s easy to live like a mouse on a wheel: you go to work, you eat, you sleep, you go to work again, and so on, and then it’s the weekend. Make regular time to step off that wheel and reflect on your life”.

Today, spend a few minutes daydreaming on your commute to work. Don’t interrogate yourself during this downtime; simply let thoughts emerge and listen to what your innate wisdom is telling you.

I did just that today! I picked up my kid from the sitters and just relaxed on the ride home. No radio, no singing, no noisy toys. We really didn’t say much to each other either. Not only was it therapeutic, I got a lot of thinking done. Normally my thinking time is in the shower…I’ve must have been a mermaid in another life with all the time I spend showering (thinking).

Mermaid
Still the queen of the shower!

I will need to incorporate this in my daily routine more often. Even if it’s for 3 minutes. Just like you de-clutter your house, work and life; you will really feel like your mind has been de-cluttered by giving it some love. I dare you to try it.

Well that’s my rant for tonight. Hope you guys have a great evening!

-Blessings!
