My most enjoyable way to start each day is with little waste of time .
Any given morning, I can be found loading the dishwasher, folding the towels, shining up the stainless steel refrigerator doors (I did that one this morning).
The efficiency experts tell me I am wasting time.
I need a To Do List. I am putting the small things before the big important ones. I am losing ground, losing the race to success, getting sidetracked and being unfocused.
Something inside me knows differently.
These time wasting moments are what grounds me.
I sometimes fall into the abyss of berating myself for “frittering away” my time doing these seemingly trivial tasks. Then I get it: feeling good is not trivial.
Doing what feels good is my way of taking care of a need within myself: to put these little symbolic things in order harkens to a deeper trust I have of myself, knowing that folding the laundry now, because it feels good, will unfold into all that I really want in my life.
Think about this the next time you want to talk yourself out of doing what feels good to you (like hot yoga, for instance); that’s your heart calling out to you that you are ignoring.
Are there any message more important?Are you there to pick up the call and if not, whose life are you living today?
What did you do that felt good today? COMMENT HERE..and congratulations on heeding the call.
