Today is a pivotal day for me. It is the last day of my long weekend of creativity as well as resetting my mind to balance and tomorrow I go back to work. I have several creative things planned that I am so excited to do. I have the Best Friends Quit Along top to load and quilt. I want to paint with acrylics. I also want to sew a few of my Irish Chain blocks. And I do want to try exercising for the first time since my Covid vaccine. It will be a light workout as my joints and muscles have been aching from the injection. But totally worth getting it, I want to see my family.
But there is also a nervous tension, too. Tomorrow is the inauguration of the new President. For the first time in my lifetime, there has been a threat to the peaceful transfer of power. I have been totally blown away by this and never thought it could happen. It’s been like living in a horrible movie. I keep thinking that this movie can’t get any worse when the opening scene was the pandemic and all it’s baggage then it has just escalated from there as the last year of this film has played on. So what to do. I found my favorite meditation website , that has tons of free content that I have used , is on Netflix. Yes! A whole series on meditation and mindfulness. Couldn’t have come at a better time. I think that I am going to save my money and buy an annual subscription to the Headspace app because it is the best thing to have in times like this. Todays focus is to be mindful of all that I am doing on this last day of vacation, this eve of the Presidential Inauguration. You can go to their website here:
They even have a free meditation for those worried about politics!
I love making things and especially quilting because you can be so mindful and find that Zen space where the brain is free from all it’s troubles. A totally indulgent day to be mindful and create things.
