Getting Back to the Basics of a Normal and Ordinary Day by Being Destructively Productive

Things just fell into place for me to write this Blog post today, so I’m supposing it is the right thing to do!  I even found an appropriate quotation by randomly opening my gratitude book– go figure!

“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,
or bury my face in the pillow,
or stretch myself taut,
or raise my hands to the sky and want,
more than all the world, your return.”
— Mary Jean Iron

If you’ve been following along… besides the normal daily drama, I’ve been going through lots of technical issues — and losing lots and lots of sleep and patience.  Like everything else, one thing gets solved, another takes its place.  The object is to roll with the punches and keep balanced, but  how does one do that? 

For me it is to take a deep breath, walk away and get back to basics.  What is basic for me may not be basic for you, everyone is different.  For me basics means different things at different times.  I’m feeling spiritually balanced at this moment, so for me back to basics today was to have lunch and plop myself down in front of the TV to catch up with my favorite soaps.

WELL there is more… 

I decided to do some decluttering and plow through a bunch of junk mail and papers I no longer needed.  That would have been mindless, but my shredder broke and until one goes on sale, I’m doing it the old fashioned way!

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO…  I sat for one hour “manually” furiously ripping and tearing everything into shreds – being what I like to call “destructively productive.”

You know what?  By the time I got done I was feeling calmer and more than a little contented knowing I actually did something I’d been meaning to do — declutter and file — while destressing in the process! You gotta love it!

Had my spirit been bruised…  I’d have picked an appropriate spiritual CD set and took myself for a walk. OR, grabbed my camera and just walked until I found something to photograph!  Today, I just felt like being alone with me!
