I should bathe more frequently...
And not for the obvious hygeine issues (although, some days working from home... LOL).
No, what I find is that laying there in the water, my hair swirling around my face, I think more clearly.
The worries and frustrations seep away and I am left with clarity.
Suddenly problems that have vexed me, are resolved. Ideas that have been percolating in the back of my mind, come surging to the forefront, ready for action.
I wish I could say that I am great at meditating. That before bed or in the middle of the day I can sit back, relax and find this focus.
No, there is something magical between the water and myself. Something happens that insulates me from the chaotic, hectic life I normally lead. Let me be clear. I do not light candles, turn off the lights and create a sacred space.
Nope, I am usually in a hurry, late for work, rushing to get ready.
Yet each time, no matter how my body wants to race forward, there is a magical moment when my mind balks and whispers quietly... stay... rest a while.
So from now on, I think I am going to make sure to savor the baths I take every day (okay, every other day... fine you caught me, every three days #hopefully) :-)
