Who knew that doing nothing could be such a struggle?
Part of my “Go with the Flow” resolution is to not hold the expectation that I should be doing something productive every minute of the day.
Didn’t take long for THAT to cause problems.
At 7 AM, after having walked Rumpy, fed, cleaned litter boxes, and put out fresh water, I decided to go back to bed. Suddenly I was bombarded with thoughts of how I was wasting my day away by sleeping, and that I should clean. I should write. I should DO SOMETHING!
When I woke up a little after 9 AM, the thought that I should DO SOMETHING popped up immediately, and stayed with me all day.
Do I really believe I am not worthy of relaxation? That my value as a person is in my actions?
So I shut up that condemning voice with a cookie and a chick flick.
It’s obvious it’s going to take more than one day to make this resolution a reality.
