Nothing Today

My mind is delightfully blank today. If you’ve never had to deal with intrusive racing thoughts as a matter of course, then you probably cannot appreciate how significant this is. It’s one of those things that is useful for relaxation and meditation, and a big reason why I have never managed to get behind either. So on days like this, I can almost imagine what it is like to be able to un-hunch the shoulders, take a deep breath, and flop out without having to be sprawled on the floor or a bed. It’s nice, and makes mindfulness techniques and semi-forced mini-breaks more successful in bringing a bit of balance and serenity to a scarred psyche.

So yes, huzzah for feeling something akin to relaxed. It’s definitely worth celebrating.
