Today was one of those days. I had things lined up and was working on various projects and smaller tasks. The sun was streaming down and so I took my laptop out into the garden to enjoy the warmth and fresh air. Mmmm…I so loved that.
The butterflies were fluttering around me. Busy little bees were flitting in and out of the open blossoms in the garden. The flowers and bushes were gently bobbing in the soft breeze. And believe it or not, I was actually getting my work done.
This beautiful energy was helping me to be productive.
One by one I ticked things off my ‘to do’ list.
It’s amazing how satisfying that can be. To finish what you set out to do in a day. It’s a real feeling of accomplishment, no matter how much or how little it really is.
Time was moving on and I suddenly realised that I needed to get ready to drive into the city for my weekly yoga class. Something which I normally love.
But today, something was different. I slowed down and tuned in to what I wanted to do in that moment. And it became really clear to me that what I wanted was to continue with my writing and then go for a refreshing walk in the park.
So I took the decision and made the change.
The walk was delicious in the truest sense of the word. Such balmy air. Summery. Warm. Relaxed. Aaahhh…
I’ve made a firm commitment to myself to do that more often. Instead of doing what I have lined up, stop and listen to what I really want.
So the next time you want to have a blissful day – change your mind and follow your heart.
I’d love to hear about the last time you did this for yourself. Please share.
