Posts Tagged ‘moment of zen’

December was hectic to say the least. Filled with work, family and over-crowded weekends which made me want to sit at home under a blanket and just be myself. It was good fun, but not the relaxing month I had anticipated and needed (don’t know why I always do this though, December is hardly ever truly relaxing). And then came January where we are looking forward to another 4 weekends in a row with arrangements, birthdays and family.

But I try to look at things differently now. Dwell on the little things, the moments of zen and relaxation that makes me remember who I am and what I love. This weekend’s greatest moment of zen has so far been waking up this morning to an apartment which was completely quiet. All I could hear were the birds chirping away outside – rare scenario when you live in Copenhagen! I looked around our bedroom and could suddenly feel the stillness creep under my skin and my muscles relax. No thoughts, just happiness. We’ve had guests Friday night and all afternoon yesterday, so waking up to an empty calendar and a quiet home was all I needed. Do you recognize this feeling of being pleasantly surprised and engulfed by silence and a feeling of contentment?

My morning has been filled with more quietness and beautiful things

The rest of the day will be filled with glorious nothingness accompanied by tea, the husband and reading. Running would have been great, but acquired a knee injury when I ran a half marathon on the 31st – you win some, you loose some…

A great Sunday to all of you 🙂
