Just breathe

It’s almost midnight. I wasn’t going to write today but – in order to keep up with my resolution to write 1,000 words daily – here I am. As long as I finish in this next four minutes. I wonder how fast I can type today.

Sometimes writing comes easily for me. But finding an interesting topic to write about that others will take pleasure in reading can prove to be difficult. But I’ve learned – that in order to get really good at something, you need practice. And you need to practice a lot.

So here I am. Nearly midnight on a Saturday night.

It’s been a pretty good day actually. I got a lot accomplished at home. While I spent a lot of time reading various blogs and posts online, I decided to opt for a “quiet and contemplative” day. I only commented on a few discussions and then that was it.

That actually felt pretty good.

Sometimes you just need to unplug yourself from the world and detox from the negativity online. I got all my laundry done. My kitchen is mostly cleaned. There are fresh and clean sheets on the bed.

There is no greater feeling than crawling into a clean bed, in clean pajamas at the end of the day. The smell alone is worth it.

I spent some time shopping online making wish lists. I’ll be redecorating my bedroom this summer. Time for new furniture. Time for some new and bright colours in my life. Time for change. Change all around, I think.

Today was a stress free day. I woke up with good energy and completely pain free. That’s a first. When you have chronic pain issues, those days seem rare..

I had a great visit with my dad. Tucked him in bed at nine and was home by 9:30. I’m back in front of my computer — relaxing.

Quiet. Contemplative. Maybe even serene.

It’s amazing how good it can feel once the pain is gone. For those who suffer from migraines or arthritis, you know what I’m talking about. The pain can be overwhelming. Even with the aid of pain medication, massages and all those things that are supposed to help. Today for the first time in a long time – I feel clearheaded. No migraine hangover.

The world around me is clear.

Well, look at that. I’ve run out things to write about for the day. I guess 400 words will have to do.

Enjoy these moments. These rare moments when the loud roar of life becomes a dull hum. The chaos dissipates just enough – just long enough to enjoy it. Even if it’s only for one day.

Enjoy these little moments. Take a deep breath and just – breathe.
