I had a bit of a Dharma moment while shopping today, and bought a bunch of glow-in-the-dark toys, shaped elastics and bubbles. My daughter and I then spent the afternoon blowing bubbles in our back yard.
I used to be like this – a little nutty – a long time ago. I’ve been trying to figure out where the nutty side went, because I realised that, at some point over the past couple of years, I became very, very serious. I became the adult I always promised I wouldn’t, but I think it is because I just had so many people to take care of. It felt good today just buying a couple of whimsical things, well, at a whim. And while it is important to remain professional at work and to take care of people, it is also important to remain a little nutty sometimes, even if just to hold on to your own sanity.
My daughter and I also attended our first Yoga class today, and it was great. It was the best work-out I’ve ever had – with me drenched half-way through the lesson – and I felt absolutely fantastic afterwards. I think this will be a keeper.
