Today I had the idea in my meditation that I should spend the day pretending that I was a guest at a high-end hotel. Every wish granted. All I had to do was relax and enjoy myself while the staff ran around behind the scenes making sure everything was perfect.
Which didn't mean not sending necessary emails, making phone calls, showing up for lunch with a fond business acquaintance I hadn't see in few months, go to my son's parent/teacher conference. The usual busy stuff. But I consciously didn't worry about the greater themes of job (okay, really mostly job), social life, health, etc.
I noticed that I had a hard time feeling that I could just relax and let someone else help for a change. I'm so used to always doing everything for others. That happens when you have kids and pets. And I've always been pretty proactive when it comes to work. But I did try. And it was fun! Everything seemed a lot easier. The energy was more like, "I was just making a phone call. The outcome is out of my hands." That was relaxing.
I suppose it's my version of "turning it over to the Lord." There's something to be said for it. I'll let you know if anything comes of it. It was absolutely delightful to spend a day without worry though. Try it sometime for the spa-like effects. Just picture a bunch of people running around arranging things perfectly while you take a stroll after lunch or something.
In other news, M, even though she lives only 4 miles away, sent me a postcard! How incredibly awesome is that? Very! Just a fun thing to do and a fun thing to receive. Yay, M!
