As you know I resolved earlier in the week to spend today in what I termed a “Day of Bliss”. Meaning I wasn’t going to do anything that wasn’t my passion. What today turned into was more of a “Day of Rest”. However doing so did make me happy.
There were household chores that could have been done. But since I resolved to not do those things today, I felt free from the need to do them. Don’t worry. All those chores will still be waiting for me tomorrow. The key was to only do things that I was either passionate about or that made me happy.
Over the last few months we’ve been in a whirlwind of activity with football season and as of last night the season is over. I think what we all needed most of all was rest. Real rest. Real quiet rest. Or at least that’s what I needed. I woke up early then went back to bed. Woke up later, had some delicious coffee and a donut or two. Wound up watching a movie I’d never heard of and did some light reading on the sofa. Took a peak at a couple of football games just to check on the scores and enjoyed the time spent resting. Everyone fared for themselves as far as meals go. All in all it was a great way to spend the day.
So while I may have thought I was going to spend my Day of Bliss working on some projects I’m passionate about. It turned out better that I took a Day of Rest which in essence worked its magic on me. Setting me up to be energized for those things for which I am passionate. More about those “Passion Projects” as things progress.
