RDO today ♥
I need it too. I don’t work as hard as I used to, but I do tend to feel it when things start to get hectic again.
I started the day well- I overslept but still manage to rouse myself in time to make a mad dash to yoga. No organisation required today which helped, just had to get dressed, teeth brushed and out the door.
Takeaway coffee and chat with a friend before heading home to face the yard destruction that I was unwilling to face last night. No, it definitely did NOT look better in the morning!
Called my mother as I promised I would do 5 days ago. A few more phone calls, check my email. Shower, and take dog to the vet.
Second coffee (how indulgent) and a brief flirt with the cute barista and I check my blog while I wait. Minutes later, and listening to a South African pop singer I am reminded of the tears I was shedding a mere 17 hours ago as the album started to play on my way home yesterday. Today, it doesn’t provoke the same reaction, and in the spectacular mid-morning sunshine I am driving home singing in Afrikaans at the top of my voice. Do I speak Afrikaans? Not quite…I can say “good morning, how are you?”, does that count? No, I just make it up.
Hey- my car, my ipod, my imaginary language, ok?!
I have had a positive start to my day and I am looking forward to relaxing in an organised house in a few hours time (and maybe putting in a little more effort to this blog!), I look forward to not letting nostalgic thoughts darken my day, I look forward to a cuddle with my pooch, I look forward to decluttering my life and listing half my wardrobe on Ebay.
I look forward to today. Not tomorrow, not next week, not next year…just, today.
