When there is a moment of nothingness in today’s world of being scheduled to the hilt, obligations galore and feeling pressured with everything that “must” get done… it can be terrifying or absolutely amazing.
Over the weekend I had many (many!) things I could do or wanted to check off the “back burner” list, but ultimately there was nothing that was time critical, needed to get done, or was breathing down my neck. Hubby was in the same boat. We each had things we could do, but ultimately we tossed most of the to-do’s out the window.
We did a whole lot of nothing. It was a-m-a-z-i-n-g.
We ran errands (so yes, we were somewhat productive), talked about our future, enjoyed a good friend’s birthday and, most importantly, enjoyed each other’s company. It was the best weekend I have had in I can’t remember how long…
I have to admit, throughout the entire weekend I was worried I would wake up on Monday morning and kick myself for not taking the time to tackle X, Y or Z. But you know what? I didn’t. I woke up with a smile on my face because I had an extraordinary weekend enjoying the company of my husband and doing a whole lot of nothing.
I guess the point I’d like to make is this – when the “do nothing with the one(s) you love” opportunity presents itself … take it. You may hear a voice in the back of your head saying “you could organize your bathroom cupboards”. Ignore it. In today’s world we don’t get many “nothing” moments. Treasure them. They are pretty awesome to reflect on. 🙂
