I am writing in my official capacity of grump!!! No seriously, with the shops and stores around us filling with Christmas gifts and decorations, the holiday season moving up on us quickly for many the time from Thanksgiving onwards will be spent in a headlong rush towards Christmas with hardly a time to breathe.... I am looking at the possibility of finding little gaps in the day or the week to spend in extravagant unbusyness ( a wonderful phrase coined by a fellow revgal)...
So given those little gaps, name 5 things you would do to;
1.to care for your bodyYou know I have been thinking of having a pedicure, I may just get one, and/or a massage. Heck I may just go to a spa for the day. Other than that I will continue my morning walks, and eating healthy.
2. to care for your spirit
Well it seems to me this is related to # 1. I would think as I take care of my aches and pains, my body, that I can then take in the Spirit better. I am not as focused on "what's wrong with me" instead I am focused on my spirit being connected to God's Spirit.
3. to care for your mind
Okay, this might have been better to come after #1 before #2. My mind will get to watch movies this time of the year, which my mind likes to do, and will read books as able. I am guessing that also that taking care of my body will help my mind, after all it is a muscle. And being forcused on my spirit being connected to God's Spirit is will be good for my mind too. Oh and I like to read the poems about Christmas at this time of year.
4. to bring a sparkle to your eye I will enjoy the sparkle in my kid's eyes. I will enjoy the sparkle in my hubby's eyes. Iwill enjoy the sparkle in my pets' eyes. I like to make crafts and bake around Christmas, and so I have been gathering crafts for us to make, and the ingredients for baking. I really can't wait, and in fact may start on them now, because it gets so busy in Dec.
5. to place a spring in your step Okay you got me on this one. I am not a very good dancer. I just had a birthday that reminds me my spring is getting looser and doesn't have as much spring in it as it once had. Mainly I think it will be keeping up with my kids at Christmas.
Enjoy the time to indulge and dream.... and then for a bonus which one on the list are you determined to put into action? Oh my, the doing things with my kids and with my kids is the easy one. But to go to the Spa, well, I will probably not do it, unless I really push myself, make an appointment and keep it. Taking care of me has always been a hard thing to do. It seems so extravagant...
