I woke up at 6 a.m. Sleep was pulling at me, telling me how lovely it would be to sleep longer, whispering sweetly. I ignored the seduction of sleep and slowly got out of bed. The depression that had been weighing on me was still lingering. I really wanted to crawl back in bed and pause life for a while. Instead I went in the house, made tea, grabbed the smoothie I had made the night before and headed to work.
At my first job I listened to “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” by Robin Sharma on audio. Listening to the book gave me clarity and I immediately had a shift in my perception. The heavy depression I had been experiencing lifted. I felt light and joyful. I delighted in my work and created a beautiful masterpiece. The house was sparkling clean. I drove next door to my 2nd job and continued listening to my audiobook. I received a text from my client whose house I just cleaned. She said her house looks amazing. I graciously thanked her for sharing that with me.
I finished my 2nd job and drove to my 3rd job. My clients were home so I didn’t listen to my audiobook. Instead we had great conversations about goats and experiences in our lives, while I cleaned. When work was over, I drove home listening to my audiobook. I was getting so much out of it, I knew I would be listening to it over and over for a few days.
Once at home, I sat in the sun and focused on getting my music club program put together. It all flowed together easily and I was excited about it. The title was Joy To Life based on a song by Alexa Sunshine Rose. Christopher came and sat by me and I shared the program with him and we talked until it was time to get ready for supper. I ate a salad for supper and we all shared our gratitudes. Then I took a nice hot bath and wrote my blog until it was time to go to music club.
At music club, the program went great. I even managed to get my phone connected to the TV (with help) to show some music videos on YouTube. I invited a 10 year old girl from our homeschool co-op to perform. She played her ukulele and sang 2 songs and she was a hit. I sang 2 songs that bring me joy. Two other music club members shared a song and a poem that brought them joy. It was great energy and great people. I felt full and happy and was grateful to be a part of such an amazing group of talented loving people.
When I got home I went straight to bed but I wasn’t tired, I still felt high from music club. I wrote my blog and finally fell asleep around 10:30 p.m.
I am grateful to have experienced another wonderful day.
Thank you for reading my blog and being a part of my life. I dearly appreciate you.
