A workaholic doing nothing? Nah...

For a self-confessed workaholic, the words
DOING NOTHING are a total anathema.
And yet, here I am with no furniture to paint, no textiles to launder, no hats to steam, no photographs to take...and horror of horrors,
This strange idea of a (dare I whisper the word)
 h  o  l  i  d  a  y
came quite out of the blue.
One morning all was as normal...the next I woke up and didn't feel like working.
Completely flat, totally drained.
My get-up-and-go had simply gone.
As a great believer of listening to what your body says
(why does my body ALWAYS say more chocolate [and shoes])
I've decided to take it easier for a little bit.
No plans, no hard-and-fast rules, just see where a resting mind and body leads.
Unchartered territory here I come!

Oh yes!
Good for you - to be in tune with what our bodies want to do is the best way forward, I am certain of it. Of course, it has taken over 40 years for me to put that into practice!!
It may seem I'm going off on a tangent here, but do you know the Shakespeare Play "Much ado about Nothing"? Well, one of the meanings of the word "nothing" in Will's day was "noting" .... I love that.... when we do nothing, we are actually TAKING NOTE of what is going on around us, and inside ourselves too. So if you need an excuse, and I don't thing you do! - but you could point out that NOTHING = NOTING.... you're busy taking note of life :-)
Happy days,
