A Moment to Breathe Amidst the Busyness
It's been one of those days.
"One of those crazy days..." (Any Sinatra fans out there? ;)
Classes at my local college. Practicing for a Shakespeare competition (it's amazing how summing 'charming spells and pariapts' and reciting a sonnet can drain you). Teaching a class of 8th graders. Being sore from an intense workout yesterday.
...all to say, I'm physically + mentally weary.
The kicker? Tomorrow's an even longer day, with a mile-long to-do list.
So first, before the craziness starts and I hit the ground to start running, I plan to...
Take a juicy, restorative yoga class.
Drink in the sunlight and scent of coffee.
Make a mug of my favorite hot tea.
Eat a gorgeous salad.
And some dark chocolate with sea salt.
Read Sally's blog.
Retreat to a coffeeshop even if only for a few minutes...
One brief morning of my favorite things, of ministering to my soul with beauty and peace will help me through the rest of the day. It will leave me renewed and ready to ninja-kick everything I need to do.
And then I'll go home and do my favorite - and most needed - pastime.
