Finding everything in nothing
"Today I don't feel like doing anything...."
Today I didn't do anything.
Well, ok...that's not exactly true...but compared to the busyness that usually fills my days, I didn't do much.
Ever since my friend Mike died on November 5 four years ago, this day has brought me unexpected rest and reflection. Two years ago I spent the day with an IV in my arm at the hospital. Luckily this year only brought me a rainy day and a strained hamstring.
Today I had a massage, took a nap, and read a book. I meditated, fantasized about traveling to Bryce Canyon and watched tv with my kids. I made a quiche and had a glass of chardonnay. That's it. Time for bed.
No shoe fittings.
No two-a-day workouts.
No phone calls to new clients.
Feelings of guilt tried to creep in- but my soul immediately shushed them as it crawled back into my being.
One day a year.
Thanks Mike....miss ya bud.
