The Everyday Adventure: Do Nothing.

There's a place I go when the world feels like it's spinning out of control, when I don't feel like I can hold it all together.

I couldn’t wait to get there today. I thought about it all day at work. I’d made a three pages of to-dos, but the only thing I wanted was to get outside, by myself, in the solitude of my place.

I equate that place with peace, the place I go when I need to breathe, when I need balance, when I need to think and release.

When I got there, the road to that place was completely blocked by farmers harvesting.

It was one of those days when it felt like nothing was going right. My head was spinning with the amount of things I needed to do. I considered turning around.

But I kept driving. I knew of another spot.

And that road was blocked too.


I drove on. I found another road, another place to park, another place to just be. I watched birds play in the field, listened to all the insects chirp and buzz in the weeds, felt the fall breeze sweep through my hair.

And you know what?

Sometimes you just have to keep driving. You have to stop letting one disappointment derail you and make you go back to the beginning.

And sometimes, when you have everything in the world to do, the best thing is to go do nothing.
