The sound of trickling water, rotating lights illuminating the space, while a mist of lavender essential oil fills the air.
Talk about relaxing.
I've added this little spa mist to my writing workspace, and I can already tell a change that is taking place.
I feel more calm and relaxed. I'm able to write more freely and to think more clearly.
You wouldn't think that such a little gadget like this would have such a profound effect, but it does. I think it helps, because I believe in the power of simplicity, of quieting the daily noise, and of immersing myself in the enjoyment of this moment.
It's allowing me the chance to sit in quiet reflection without giving thought of what might be next. Right now there is no next, there is only now.
I think that's really hard to take in, because we live in such a rushed, on the clock society. So, when someone is relaxed without a care in the world, it might seem almost irritating. Until you personally try it, and then you get it. You get what it means to not rush from one thing to the next. To simply be in the present.
I get that it's a challenge. I used to be a charter member of the proverbial "rat race," but I'm changing that a little at a time. For me, a positive start has been a little spa mist that helps create the environment I want for myself. It's only a start, but it feels amazing.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
