This may be the word’s shortest blog post…
The reason why is because I need a pajama day. Pajama Day is when you stay in your pajamas (and maybe even in bed) all day not because you’re sick… just spent. I think everyone feels this way sometimes but whether they acknowledge it is a different story.
When you are a creative person (writer, artist, musician… whatever) it becomes obvious pretty quickly when you have reached this state. The ideas may be there swirling around but the act of actually bringing them to fruition seems suddenly daunting and impossible.
Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is just stop. Animals do this naturally. When Chauncy and I get home from a walk, he’ll plop down right in front of the front door for as long as he needs to. He doesn’t worry about getting anything done …or even being in the way. He just does what he needs to do in that moment, nothing.
Next time you feel frenzied, just stop. Give yourself permission to do nothing. It doesn’t have to be for a whole day. Try an hour or even five minutes… See what happens. You may be pleasantly surprised by what happens next…
Love and blessings to all,
