I am sitting in my room at the moment debating on whether I want to go outside to deal with the slushy mess that I know I will meet due to the snowstorm that came through the Northeast and Midwest last night. I like looking at snow but I hate feeling trapped in because of it and feeling less productive as a result. I have so much going on inside my head and being off from work gives me the chance to over think things which has shown to do more harm than good. So what’s a girl to do when she’s snowed in?
I wanted to work on some of the goals that I am able to do while being inside (exercise, meditate) so I can feel like I’ve accomplished something. I also want to continue reading this book that is helping me tap into my inner artist called “The Artist’s Way” which has helped me become more honest with myself and has given me a clearer idea on how to go about expanding my creativity. This would help motivate me but then the other side of me just wants to listen to music and watch tv shows on the HuluPlus app on my iPad. I feel like this is a great way to relax which is good because I am able to clear my mind of all stressful ideas (this is what I keep telling myself anyway!)
Instead of looking at this situation as a roadblock that’s stopping me from being productive, I am going to take the snow as a sign to stop whatever I am doing and to just appreciate what is around me. So many of us are used to our everyday routines and fast pace that life offers but we often don’t press pause and just live in the moment. Whatever I decide to do while I am snowed in for the day. I am going to make sure that I enjoy every minute of it and I hope you do the same:)
