Unslow days viewed slowly

February 18, 2009

I had anything but a slow day. The difference this time was I noticed as my day unfolded how unslow it felt. Instead of immediately getting wrapped up in the frenzy, I took things as they came, and made room for a twenty-minute power walk through the snow and sun to get some fresh air. It was in between phone calls, homework help and shuttling kids to and from destination A, B, and C. Through it all I kept thinking “This is going to be over soon. It will be! Then I’ll take a bath and unplug.”

I managed to take the bath I had promised myself yesterday after being in the cold all day in Munich. It was divine.

Want to know another irony? I sent my fully corrected manuscript via DHL (for tracking purposes -honest!) on Monday. They said it might take two days. It arrived exactly 24 hours later on my editor’s desk in New York. It went from Munich to Leipzig to New York in that time.

And I swear the delivery guy looked just this one!

The power of intention!

    That’s awesome. I love when we can see ourselves in it and know that because it’s not what we necessarily want we don’t have to live in it for long. We know where we want to go and how we want to get there!
