It may not fit the blog itself but then who cares...!!!
I have had a blissful few days pottering around.... and it was exactly how I needed to spend my time.
I write this blog having woken up with the thought "time wasted enjoyed is not wasted time" but that wasn't right...
Pottering - that is.
I write straight out my head, whereas I often write first, post a while later, rewrite a bit - this is happening now (wooohooo) and I hope I don't get to the end and something happens I lose the blog!!! lol a sign that it was not meant to be posted afterall - more pottering to do!
I'm lucky I've had the luxury of time this break to be able to potter. There were some things I thought I wanted to do, write and read more and well plans changed, I changed and it's been great. I consider it a luxury to be able to wake up every day without an alarm, just when I want to, then laze in bed maybe with a cofffe - post on instagram, check facebook, do my meditation and then allow the day to unfold. I have plans but I kept them leisurely timing, no rush just breathing in the moment.
I wish all our lives were a bit more this way - not all the time maybe but a little more. Instead of this rush rush rush must do, achieve, be productive and successful - stop and potter and be still...
Now those who know me are probably thinking I'm either drunk (no it' s 9am and no hangover either) or gone a bit crazy (I live on a remote island so quite possibly) - yes I said 'still', something I have been told to be for quite some time and I've replied "I am still when I'm xyz...." - bless me hey.. But I am getting it now, the art of being still, letting the world turn in the way she does and always will and seeing what comes up and then goes.
I've had some amazing chats with freinds while here and I truly appreciate the people I've met and know here (if you don't know me I'm in Singapore now, but I live on Bawah).
Celebrating my birthday on Bawah herself is something I can look back on in years to come and be YAY for my 47th, celebrating again yesterday here with those who came along leaves me with a huge smile, a few tears welling up and my heart full of love and gratitude. Thank you to those who could make it.... and to those who couldn't but wanted to..
Allowing myself to potter and just be has been the best medicine and I feel revived and alive and ready to rumble - in a calm and peaceful way.
Thanks as ever - and potter away...
