Busy! Busy! Busy! We’re all so darned Busy!
Or so it seems some days. I’m not talking about a person’s job, nine-to-five or whatever hours they are dedicating to making a living and paying the bills we all end up with.
No, I’m talking about how some of us seem to fill any idle time we may have with things that end up keeping us Busy to the point that the only real rest we get is when we drop into our beds each night, exhausted.
You see, what a lot of people don’t realize is that even such, what we call “fun things” like; charity work, or crafts, or sports and exercise, or whatever we commit our free time to, can stress and exhaust our bodies and even our minds if we are not careful.
The old saying for everyone to “Stop and Smell the Roses” has been around for ages, but it’s telling us that we all need to take the time and relax our minds at one time or another.
I know that these special moments of relaxation are so necessary for me to keep my mind on a level plane.
And as I grow older, I make sure that I take these special moments more often and that I do something that cannot in any way be construed as work.
One of my favorite ways to relax is to pour myself a glass of Wine and go outside my home. There, I take a chair in the shade of a large tree and then I do two things;
I sip on my glass of Wine and I just gaze around my yard and watch the trees as the winds blow through and move the tree limbs and leaves around.
At times, it seems to me that these movements resemble what a dancer might be doing while alone on a stage.
A Gust of wind will bend a leaf covered limb and it will submit and bend in one direction, and when this Wind has passed, the limb returns to its original position, seemingly waiting for another random gust of Wind to force them to dance, one more time.
Eventually, what I have watched will have cleared my mind to the degree that I am truly enjoying these simple and natural things nature is giving me.
And I find that my Heart is full and my mind has been cleared of all of those leftover toxic things that seem to stay there for far too long.
And Yes, Sometimes, all I need is a Glass of Wind and a Breeze!
