Having lived in a communist country as a kid, I was used to carnations and freesias on March 8th - the women's day; carnations when you have to give and freesias for the loved ones. Funny but it was a rule everyone new and no one mentioned. And I never felt it like one. It was mother's day for me, although it has special day of it is own. March the 8th - the day we celebrated the women in the family. So the day never included something special but the usual gratitude and love in my life. A flower or two to give and receive and its all done. I just don't believe one day can make a year, so I prefer to live the year a bit more like it is a holiday and obviously and intently make the "holiday" much more like an average day.
I spent most of this same day yesterday waiting for a treatment. Hours by an window, watching the doves. I knew, I will wait three hours if I am lucky. They turned to be four. I spent the first twenty minutes planning three major personal activities and schedule bonboneva lingerie collections for 2016. I had my journal with me. And, again, it turned out twenty minutes are plenty. I will be adding more lingerie types and more variety this summer.
I had no book with me, as I had my eyes really tired two weeks ago and they have just recovered. So three and a half hours doing nothing. Haven't done this in many months. It was a bus ride last time. I remember the feeling then - five hours exotic day spa - watching the nature, the trees and skies moving outside the window for hours. I called it day spa actually. Took more than five hours all together and the day was almost gone.
It is kind of scaring how things like this happen. I have the option of moving working hours around the clock, enjoy daily walks and the sea when I like /I need spare time, but now real traveling - it is 15minutes car ride or a bit more than an hour walking/. I know it is a blessing and I embrace it. Still three hours of nothing feel so exotic. I have mastered ticking to-dos and creating new ones in no tine. Time flies and every spare minute is filled in a second.
Do you relate to these fast days and unexpected escapes feelings?
