‘Gone Fishing’

27 Jan

Peace and Solitude

I am the kind of person who always needs to understand how and why things occur. I become madly irritated by people who breeze over reason in order to accommodate their particular world view.

Until today.

It has been many a long year since so many things went horribly wrong at once. It seems that every area of my life has taken a hit in the last 3 months and I am left reeling.

Normally I would tie myself in knots trying to understand exactly what happened and why – and I did begin to do that, until today.

For the first time in well, forever, I woke up thinking ‘to hell with this!’ and took myself and my broken toe to the beach. I spent a wonderful, quiet day, on my own, doing nothing more demanding than watching the wave surfing at Big Bay.

I realised that a stolen day is like a restart button for humans. It needs to be pressed every now and then.

My life was still waiting for me when I got back, but at least I faced it tanned, relaxed and full of pizza!

    I, too, have to understand the why and how of things, and I know all too well what it’s like to have it all cave in on you at once. Good ending. =)

    Love your newfound attitude! We should all do that for ourselves so much more often. Thanks for the reminder!

    No…what you actually found is what you should be doing for yourself more…the world isn’t going anywhere…but your attitude to it is. Follow that…and be free! Namaste

      I’m liking your comment more and more-the ‘no’ stopped me in my tracks and got me thinking about inventive ways to create more time and opportunity for myself! Good job you! Namaste.

        arb question – how do I put smiley faces on?

        All the emoticon’s…smiley’s etc are by using the keyboard….as in the : key (press and hold the shift key and then press the : key), the shift key is for using the top of the two symbols on each key on the keyboard, sorry if that is a bit too simplistic, and follow the : key with the right hand bracket (shift key held down then pressing the ) key), which gives 🙂
        Go here for basic emoticon making, just copy this address into your browser!
