Want to know something? My day started pretty perfectly, great sleep, blue sky walk on the beach with Butler (who rolled in something yuckie yuckie and since has had a bath) followed by fresh coffee and porridge, the breakfast of champions. And then, well, you know what happens, technology had its own mind, I accidentally cut the table cloth (don’t ask – not my proudest moment) and the weather has clouded over. But hey, lets get back to this Perfect Day.
Day 5 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge by Natalie Sisson has me dreaming. Dreaming of a day when I notice myself smiling, shoulders low and head clear. To my surprise, I realise that I do have these moments in my days quite often. Can you see me smiling at this realisation?
My perfect day goes something like this…
I wake up feeling refreshed and have a little cuddle with Butler and my lover/friend, walking shoes at the ready, Butler and I head to the beach and walk, feeling the wind, the sand, the sun, my shoulders are low and I feel calm and strong, ready to face the day ahead. We meet others on the beach and both Butler and I get to connect with others and feel like we belong and know people.
We head back and have breakfast, a yummy hearty bowl of porridge with fresh fruit and strongly brewed coffee. Starting at the ocean and sitting in the sun, with no distractions while I plan out in my head what to do with my day.
I head down to my studio and turn music on and fire up the laptop. I answer emails requesting to work with me or to buy work by me. I feel empowered and that I am on the right course for my life through people wanting what I do. Then I get crafting, creating and making for a few hours and get lost doing what I love. My tummy rumbling reminds me to eat so Butler and I head back into the kitchen and I have fresh salmon and salad for lunch with green tea. Yum!
After lunch, Butler and I head out to hunt for treasures that I will cherish or craft into something new and fun. We then meet up with friend by the harbour and get a fresh smoothie and take Butler for a walk along the harbour front or to the beach. I pick up any supplies needed for dinner and head home.
When I get back home, my partner is there and has surprised me by making dinner already. I am not annoyed but love that he wants to look after me and knows that I don’t function without something in my belly. We sit on the deck and enjoy the view while sharing a wine and dinner, friends pop over and we finish off a few more drinks and nibbles for desert, fresh strawberry sunday.
We settle to watch a favourite programme or film on tv with Butler snuggled between us. We then head off to bed, taking a few minutes to put up my post it notes for tomorrows day, read an inspirational book, make love and fall asleep. I feel cherished, home, happy and loved.
Yip – that sounds pretty perfect to me.
It gives me encouragement to realise that there are already aspects of my perfect day in my life. I can see how painting this picture helps to clarify what is important to me and what I can focus on drawing into my life, such as clients, customers, friends and a friend/lover/partner in this life.
