365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 94: Nobody Wanted Me On Their Team

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

It is true! When I was a child I played baseball at school, but my class mates, more physically fit and definitely more competitive than me did not want me on their teams. Frankly, for the other kids who loved the game and loved to win, I was a liability not an asset. I was clumsy and a very slow runner and I did not care if my team lost or won. See what I mean? Who would want such a team-mate?

The awkwardness in my movements came from the misalignment of my ankles and my hips; running and playing sports felt like a huge effort to me, physically hard and unpleasant. I have since then corrected the alignment problems in my legs and lower back, I have a strong, flexible and very healthy body. I love to move and feel the freedom and the knowledge that I have physically achieved. Learning how to heal my body provided me with first hand information that became a powerful asset in my work. I enjoy living in my body and find a lot of pleasure in movement and intelligent exercise methods.

But I did not however, become any more competitive than I was back then, when I was a kid in school. I don’t play any games and I am not involved in sports, but if I did I would still not care if I won or lost. I guess I am missing the competitive gene.

Without the drive to be better than someone else, I decided many years ago that the only thing to do was be the best that I could be in every single moment.

It is working for me.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 93: Tying Up Loose Ends

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

 

Here’s a question: what do you usually do when you have off days? You know, those days when you feel slightly out of sorts, things don’t really flow and you’re not sure what to do. What do you tend to do on one of those days?

I am having an off day today and I’m loving it!

Did I get your attention? Yes, I am absolutely loving it! You know why? Because I do not think of this as an off day at all; I think of it as a little down time before the next adventure, the next idea, the next creative day. So instead of feeling bad, unproductive, sad, worried and stressed I relax into the feeling of it and do small task that are easy to complete, do not require a lot of energy and that I never really want to do on a busy, upbeat and exciting day.

Today I have been tying up loose ends: clearing some paper work, tidying up some client accounts, planning some payments for various things, clearing a desk drawer, making a few phone calls.

So today is a calm, stress free and very productive day that offers me the gift of getting organized and ready for what tomorrow will bring.

This is a better day to perceive an off day, don’t you think? Because it is not off at all, it is an absolutely perfect day!

Love,
