A Clear Day When It Rains

Thursday, February 22, 2007

Today when I woke up I knew it would be a lazy day. The rain was rough and loud. It made we want to be warm and lazy. I was up earlier than normal so I needed the short energy nap to get that burst.
Limits are set not by goals but by your body telling you this is the time to relax. I did not want to relax today due to I do need to hit my goals and numbers for the day.
Upon welcoming new members I preach "it is not about the numbers, it is about making yourself happy and being able to say, "I did good." "
I did not hear that today after the energy nap. I had no energy! Your mind can tell you what needs to be done and tell you it is what is best for you, but if you just do not have it, you don't have it! The "it" is knowledge of when to say it is time to rest and this is what is best for you and not have the guilt to go along with it. Not saying the guilt will not be there because it will, the empowerment of allowing your body to heal and take in the cleaning and restructuring it has been doing will be better and you will not feel the guilt. Guilt itself is not something we actually feel it is a concious decision and thought.
Through our journeys, we all will have ups and down. But you will be able to see "A Clear Day When It Rains". So on those rainy days when you want to just stay warm, do it and make yourself happy!

    I live in an area where we have snow and rain in the winter and I know how those lazy days are. I do not feel guilty when I don't get out of bed until 11 or sometimes 12. I have a partner that loves to snug and we sometimes stay in bed all day, just depends on what is on the agenda, The worst thing to do is to beet yourself up for giving yourself what it deserves, You work hard and abuse your body most of the time so when you get the chance to relax take it and with out feeling guilty you deserve it.

    You should have been a philosopher. I like the depth of your thoughts and you ability to put them into words. Words are the most powerful tools on earth. With them wars are avoided or sometimes begun. Words from people that we listen to can take us to wonderful vistas or the deepest canyons. Our own words control what we do and what we accomplish or too often do not accomplish. You yourself said that you say the right things to others here at Sparks, and they are the right things. Now make sure that you say the right things to yourself. In closing, after all this is said, I agree, you do what feels good at the moment. Climb to new vistas!
