What Abou YOU? Nothin' Doin'


Every Monday I ask a question, to get to know YOU better. Ready for today’s? Do you allow yourself the luxury of doin' nothin'?

As I watched my husband walk accross the parking lot to zip into the market for some fruit, I wondered what I could do for the five minutes I was alone in the car. Grab the novel I'd started and find out how Martina escaped? Journal? Pray? I decided on nothing. Exhausted from two long trips in a row, I was emotionally and physically spent. Surely I didn't need to cram every minute full of activity.

How yummy to sit and DO NOTHING. Although it only lasted five minutes, I felt refreshed and relaxed when Kevin returned to the car with my grapes. I should do this more often. I think I may be more productive if I allow myself time to think once in awhile.

What about YOU?
