the art of doing nothing

Right now is a bitter-sweet time in my life where I have the luxury of ME time. This past weekend all I really did was...nothing...and I enjoyed every minute of it! I lounged around the house, read, and ate. In the book Eat, Pray, Love the author talks about how we Americans really don't know how to do nothing. We need stimulation, entertainment,and to be productive. I can understand this, I've always needed to plan every second of my day to feel productive or to feel like I can relax afterwards.I think we need to slow down and take in the moments those are the sweetest!

Yeah sometimes I feel like I NEED to go out and do something but really doing nothing can be very satisfying

That's the best kind of day, I think.
