This is my eldest grandson swinging on a tree...
Today's challenge is...uh...I'm empty. I just maddly potted on a zillion basil plants and tomatoes and sunflowers and ran around with dirt and stones and containers I made out of yogurt pots and old boxes and plastic fish boxes and then clean it all up because it is on our dining room table - our only eating table as we don't have that sort of house with two tables. And then Hoagy needed to go out for a ramble before it rained and I have to leave in twenty minutes to go to work - four clients and won't be back because Babes are having a gatilly at the clubhouse (Debra's)so...and I want to do my thousand words.
My challenge today is to feel good no matter where on my imaginary ladder I find myself. Where are you on that ladder of 'doing', of 'achievement' and 'goals met'? Can we dissolve the ladder and realize that we are exactly where we are meant to be? Right smack-dab in the centre of the action or inaction or mulling or planting or walking or being hmmmm...? Will our inner critics rise up and call us lazybones, layabout,good-for-nothing OR will we be kind to ourselves and say we did what we needed to - we did our best for today and our goals were bigger than the day?
Maybe I'll take a notebook and write in it between clients or perhaps I'll go look at shoes, who knows?
