A Perfect Day outside the arena!

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Most of the time this day would not count for my perfect day, but after a busy 2 weeks, it is just what I needed! The skies have been pouring down rain all day, it is SO dark outside. I walked the dogs (all 3!) early before the weather got too bad. I also got to and from the library before the downpour. But since then, I've been chilling, doing little things around the house, watching Brene Brown TED videos (I'm a bit obsessed), and reading. In a bit we're going to have some popcorn, watch an episode of LOST (I know, I'm about 5 years behind), and then I'm going to break down/cook 2 chickens. What a great day!!! It has been restful and delightful!

And I'm so happy that I have been AWARE of how delightful it's been. There has not been enough delight-awareness in my life lately, but I have it today!

Brene Brown uses an image of an arena to describe any time we are going into a situation which requires vulnerability, bravery, and talking down your negativity and shame. On a day like today, I feel like I'm outside of the arena, sitting in the shade, eating grapes, and napping; preparing for the next battle in the arena by just being and resting. No battles for me today!

    Like the image "outside the arena" to describe that open, sweet, tucked away space to play and rest in! REST WELL!
