Cellular Busy-ness

I used to be harsh on myself when I took quiet time to do nothing; now, I savor it.

Most people who know me would be more likely to say the opposite, that my cells and the bio-body that contains them are so busy that it would be hard to determine which moves at a more rapid pace. I refer to myself sometimes as ‘functionally manic’ and can multi-task admirably and only occasionally drop a plate or two that I might be spinning. In the past week, I have forgotten a few appointments and feel like I am scrambling to keep up. Good thing I have calendars on line and in book form. As I am writing this, I am listening to Neil Young and considering the next line in this blog entry AND what I need to accomplish tomorrow AND do my radio show tomorrow night AND prep for a weekend in which I will be away, which means packing, setting up the GPS to get me to an interim and then final destination on Friday AND do laundry AND see clients AND do paperwork AND in between those activities, ‘normal people stuff’ like sleeping, eating and bathing…oh and breathing if I want to be able to continue to accomplish all those tasks.

Another friend, Jenny Perry shared her wisdom: “Sometimes when you feel you’ve run out of steam on your dream, your soul is just refueling.”

I told her that my dream and I need refueling and that I am feeling inspired, tired and wired. Just today I was speaking with a co-worker and said that I need an intentional vacation during which I can rest and re-create…not by accident, happenstance or illness. My cells could use a trip to someplace ahhhh inducing; doesn’t have to be very far. It would involve quiet time in the embrace of nature, with massage and relaxing music; lovely company and healthy food. Setting intention for creating that sooner rather than later. I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, I intend to visit dreamland shortly which might just involve the scenario that I described above.
