Inaction speaks louder than words

So much to little energy to do it.

I'm not sure what's come over me lately, I fret about all the things I need to do and then just sit down and fret until I can't stand it and go to bed.  Hmmm.  This is not the usual take charge person I know.

However, when I do finally make myself get outside I have a great time and can work through all but heavy thunderstorms, covered in mud and smiling all the while.

I hit these little roadbumps in life once in a while and have learned in the wisdom of my later years that it's okay to do nothing.  Sitting around and reading a good book on a lovely day is just fine...the chore police will not arrest me.  Because let's face it...there's always something you should be doing.  Nobody is ever finished with everything.  Unless they are at their own funeral.

So, I will be self compassionate today and allow myself to ride the waves of self indulgence for a while yet and know that when this passes I will hit the ground running and tackle all those to-do's that are waiting for me.

It is the Sabbath after all - and G-d wants us to refresh and recharge on a weekly basis, so off I do nothing.

Long Live the Sloth Queen


  1. Enjoy your down time. It's not only good for your soul, it's good for your body. Everyone and everything needs to rest from time to time. Although I do think that I do a bit too much "resting". Enjoy your book, and if you need more time read another one. Actually, Tootsie and I are "resting" this morning and watching "Cat In The Hat" cartoons on TV. YOu have a great day. Hugs, Edna B.

  2. Hope I didn't distract you from your jobs with our three hour lunch the other day. :) It was fun. I did get home and dig in the garden for a couple hours afterwards so it was a perfect day!
