Perfectly Boring…

Some days…it happens…well…really it doesn’t happen…anything of interest…anyway…yesterday was one of those days…

I went to work…uneventful…and…even if it weren’t…I really can’t blog about that…confidentiality…and all…‘cause…I really like my house…wouldn’t want to lose it in a lawsuit…just to tell you what kid had a boo-boo…

Did errands after work…came home…ate…cleaned out the fridge…took out the garbage…washed the dishes…played on Facebook…Twitter…Email…

And…that was about it…no adrenaline flowing…all day…no major crises to attend to…no jumping out of planes…no putting out fires…and…no flowing tears…in a word…I could probably say it was…boring

But…I chose another word…perfect

I remember years…when I thrived…on adrenaline…on the rush…of a near disaster…real or imagined…sometimes…according to…Bertha…I even created some of those situations…albeit unconsciously…just for the rush…she even uttered those words…DQDrama Queen

And…I suppose they used to fit…I can remember…staying in the thick of things…in years gone by…now…maybe it’s age…maybe it’s wisdom…no…couldn’t be that…but…whatever the reason…I just want…peaceful days…and…I spend a good deal of time…doing things…that help me get just that…

Prayer…Contemplation…Reiki…Forgiveness Prayer…all help keep me centered…and…keep the adrenaline rush…at bay…

Now…don’t get me wrong…I’m not saying that I never…get involved…in a bit of gossip…get my dander up…stick my nose where it doesn’t belong…it’s just that I don’t enjoy it…like I used to…I find it unsettling…and…I do something to get back to center…

So…for now…when…I need a little…DQ…fix…I go for the other one…Dairy Queen…hey…ice cream…beats…adrenaline rush…any day…

Just for Today

I love the five principles of Reiki…think you will enjoy them as well.
Just for today:
I will not be angry
I will not worry
I will be grateful
I will work hard
I will be kind to all living things
Although these points are enough to change my life, Bertha…being Bertha…points out that the principles can be changed to whatever I need them to be. The life-changing part is “just for today”.
So when I look at my life of late it becomes:
Just for today I will do 30 minutes of yoga after work
Just for today I will write a blog
Just for today I will practice Reiki for 10 minutes
Just for today I will not eat ice cream
Okay…in the words of Meatloaf…two out of three ain’t bad.
I love that I that I don’t have to concern myself with tomorrow…it’s only for today and today feels just right.
