It was pointed out to me that this post (which I wrote last Wednesday) did not make it to you – that’s because I published it in the wrong place. Duh! As I refered to this post in last Friday’s post I thought I better properly publish it now.
Woke up this morning with all sorts of intentions. Loads to do. Lots of balls to start rolling.
Got the kids off to school and….. nothing. Went back to bed. Slept. Tried writing. Nothing. Stared out of the window for a long time. Still no oomph. In fact I started getting a headache.
With help from my friend and coach, Kelly, I started to realise that my head was so full of ‘things to do’ and ‘shoulds’ that a mini rebellion was taking place in my body. Mutiny!
So I gave in and let myself take it easy. I suppose I must need it. In fact later, in Sainsbury’s cafe, (managed at least to get some shopping done!), I even found myself writing a rebellious letter to the Universe:
“Why do I have to do all this stuff?”
“Who the f*** cares anyway?”
“I can do anything I want?”
And so on… it felt good to vent. Very good. Once I’d said it, it was gone.
I realise that we all have this need to rebel sometimes. We need to know that we are not robots – we are ‘us’ and we can jolly well do things our own way!
Do you need to break out of the mould a bit? Are you feeling trapped by your own assumptions and the (perceived) expectations of others?
- Take a day off – lie in bed, stay in your pyjamas, watch movies
- Get in the car and drive – no destination required
- Throw an egg into the bath (weird, I know, but I did it once and it felt good)
Go on – be a devil!
