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!
