Recently my brother gave me a birthday voucher to go and lie in one of those flotation tanks for an hour then have a shiatsu massage. I stepped out of this experience all calm, peaceful and ‘floaty’ into the middle of little Bourke Street. I then instantly came face to face with all these people with serious looks on their faces striding around really purposefully. They were going to the opposite way to me, I had no idea where I was heading in that moment and was totally okay with that.
Lets extend this metaphor to life. How many of us fill up our days with busy work and things that seem important? How many of us just get way too serious? Or way too weighed down with things? What do we do to make ourselves lighter? How do we help ourselves laugh? Do we really need to be accountable for every single minute of our lives?
What about if we just wander for a bit…Remember how as a teenager you used to day dream? How you felt such joy in just being alive? we can lose that in adulthood with all our responsibilities..
I think its okay to not always have a plan. Sometimes we do need to just float for a bit and be open to new experiences and see where life takes us….This is where some of the most beautiful fruits of life will be. So lets open up to a bit more spontaneity and enjoy the rewards it brings.
