On the sixth day of Christmas
my true love gave to me it was all about…RELAXATION.
Most of my close friends and relatives know that I have a very busy life. I know many people who are at least as busy or even busier than me. I’m not complaining about this. My real problem, and I don’t know if those other busy people share this, is that I seem to be incapable of relaxing.
My head is full of thoughts. Even when I sleep my head doesn’t switch off. Just last night I dreamt about searching for a precious item which a friend recently told me he had lost. As I slept, I spent the night searching for this item only to wake up tired from the search.
So today I resolved to do absolutely nothing.
I slept in.
I watched 2 movies.
I played on my computer.
(here’s where it goes pear-shaped)
I did a load of washing.
I tidied up the lounge room.
I worked on a document for the music ministry.
However, in the scheme of things, that’s a hell of a lot more relaxation than I would normally get in a day.
My head is still full of jumbled thoughts and I can’t switch them off but they’re just a tad quieter than usual.
Perhaps tonight I’d dream of sugar-plums…
