Time out, day off, inspiration
What would you do with a chosen day off?
The SDC office is closed for Feb 4 2015. Originally, I had made a decision to cancel all scheduled appointments for February 4th to make room for the possibility of a Seahawks celebration, but it appears there is no planned public event.
A re-pete of last year’s champion homecoming brought about 700,000 parade watchers and fans flooding into Pioneer Square and SoDo, making it very difficult for people to get in and out of the area. Our sealed windows were no match for Beastmode fans, and while the crowd was joyous, it wasn’t something I felt my clients wanted on the day they come to work on challenging aspects of life. I joined in the celebration and had a great time.
Instead of waiting until the last minute to make a decision this year, I thought it would be a good time to practice what it is I teach: learning to be in the moment, take a breath, and see what “is”.
While I have plenty of things on my “to-do” list, this isn’t what my day off is about. Neither would I want a long to-do list for the clients whose appointments were moved to another day. What will we do with an extra hour is really more of a question of what will we choose to BE with an extra hour (or in my case, with an extra 7-8 hours)?
And with any luck, my day out of the office might very well include a shiatsu massage. I always manage to awaken a clever thought after the body is flushed of any circulation blocks or energy stagnation. I like who I “be” when everything in the body is feeling good!
And, as before, I still love the Seahawks! It was a great game, with a risky play that worked in the Patriot’s favor to bring them the win.
We’ll be back!
