Today has been a rainy one in Atlanta. I’m happy that I work from home and don’t have to spend too much of my day stuck in traffic or on the roads. I always see people talking about how the rain puts them in a sexy mood, makes them want to cuddle.
No doubt, I feel the urge to curl up in bed with a good movie, but instead, I spent the day with coffee and scones and working on my goals. Got a lot of writing done, made a few phone calls, but I had a quiet day. It wasn’t the usual day of messages back and forth with friends or being in communication with others. And I enjoyed the quiet. It was necessary. It is required.
I chose to let the rainy weather refresh me, instead of thinking of sexualizing it or letting it depress me. Don’t get me wrong, I love to cuddle, and a day in bed with the one you love (or desire) is sometimes just what the doctor ordered.
I don’t know. Today felt like the kind of day where I needed to clear my mind, get rid of negative thoughts, write down the positive ones, and focus. So I got as quiet as possible, opened the window in my bedroom, lit some incense, and enjoyed the time alone.
How often do we get to slow down and regroup?
Doesn’t always happen so I’m learning to take it when it comes. I’ve been there when my body has literally shut down and said “No more!” That’s not a good feeling.
Me taking time out doesn’t mean that I have my life all of the way in order. Believe me, I’m on an uphill climb right now. But a little time to regroup makes a huge difference.
