Have you ever tried to do nothing? Has it worked?
That is one of the many arts I haven't been able to master... so far. Every time I try I fail miserably.
Now for the past month I have been trying very hard to do nothing, but no, it hasn't been possible. There is always something that needs to be done, cleared up, arranged, organized, etc...
I decided to change the meaning of the word nothing, and now it means doing anything that I like doing with no expectations. For example; If I do an embroidered brooch it ends up on Etsy. I like doing it, but there is the expectation that I will sell it behind it.
So far this is what doing nothing means to me:
- Reading lots of books (most of the ones above were recommended on the e-course I took).
- Going to the beach in search of driftwood and other interesting specimens
- Walking in the forest
- Visiting bookshops
- Writing on my journal
- Finding beautiful stores, like the one below (more of it later one)
I hope all is well at your end, and that you have been enjoying every second of this wonderful summer.
All the best,
