Food as fuel was last week. Thinking about the way I eat, what I eat and why triggered a lot of feelings and inner conflicts I didn’t realise I had. I’m very grateful for the growth opportunity, but I’ll talk more about it later. I’m not sure if I’m really at a place of sharing with those feelings.
So, in honouring my need to rest for a little while, I spent all of today, April 24th, 2011 in bed. I woke up around 7 am, and I just didn’t feel ready to get out of bed. It wasn’t even an issue of laziness or anything like that. I just wasn’t ready, and I don’t currently have any massive, pressing deadlines to deal with. So I kept sleeping.
I woke up again at 11 and Skype’d with my BFF.
Then I went on Facebook.
And went back to sleep.
Woke up again and made some tea.
Napped a little more.
Realised I hadn’t showered yet.
Rolled over and went back to sleep anyway.
Woke up and went for a 2 hours walk as the sun hung low and then slipped away for the night.
Came back home and wrote this.
I can’t remember the last time I took an entire day to relax, rest, rejuvenate and prepare for the week ahead and felt no guilt whatsoever about enjoying a quiet day and the warmth of having a roof over my head and a soft pillow to place my head.
This had has been glorious.
I think I might spend more Sundays luxuriating in gratitude.
