OK! We all have had days when we’re chillin’ and it’s hard to accomplish anything and we’re just hanging around the house. There might be 1,000,000 things to do, but all we can manage is to read our email, make lunch and maybe feed the birds. It’s not what we call a productive day. It’s a chillin’ day.
Today, dear reader, was anything BUT a chillin’ day! I was productive! Organized! Efficient! Energized! Moving!
First, I attacked the desk. (“Attack” is the appropriate word to describe the energy. I took correspondence which had been tucked away in desk corners for two years and DEALT WITH IT.)
OK, truly, all that I attacked was the desk. But from the desk, the energy swirled outward to the computer area, the basement, the closet. Things went to their appropriate place. Things were tossed, re-organized, re-prioritized.
When this energetic urge strikes, one must take full advantage. It usually doesn’t last. Energy like this comes and we do crazy things like clean our kitchen table, dust the headboard on our bed, vacuum! Like a whirlwind, we cut, prune, toss, toss, toss!
Tomorrow we may be yawning. Tomorrow we may think our most important Action in Life is to write a blog. But today–we know the secret of life. It’s all about energy. It’s all about action. It’s all about movement.
Has today been one of those energetic days for you? When was the last time you experienced a wave of energy that allowed you to accomplish untold things?
(P.S.–a dear friend recently told me the Secret for gaining energy. You do something New. Something Wild. Something dangerous. OK, I might argue with the word “dangerous” but she likes it. My daughter suggested the word “adventurous”. Have you done anything adventurous today? If not, I recommend it. Adventure will create lots of energy. Tomorrow you, too, will be cleaning your desk like a dervish. Give it a try.)
