Noddy Becomes Calm and Reads a Good Book
Daily Draw February 10th, 2012
This is from The Language of Letting Go cards by Melody Beattie, a deck I’ve always liked. It is one of those odd little decks that has cheery artwork and reflections that I like.
The palpable frenzy on this card is wonderful. Pushed around the clock and thinking about love, food, the phone ringing, reading and writing, the hands on the clock like arrows, this person needs to calm down.
I did the noddy thing in the chair at 6:30 p.m. last night and again at 8 o’clock. I was plain tired so put a hot water bottle in my bed, took the dogs out, and then listened to my relaxation CD and went to sleep at 9:30 p.m. I am up at 4 a.m. but at least I got a block of sleep and should be able to go back with a hot water bottle for an hour or so after this.
There is something very peaceful about falling asleep in a chair. I had some light jazz playing on the radio and a cheery light on and a cat in my lap. I was re-reading a helpful book and felt lovely and peaceful.
I got a good book from the library called Horses Never Lie About Love that I had on hold so I’m looking forward to reading that. I had recommended that the library buy several books on art journalling and creativity and they did buy three of them for the system, two of which I have borrowed to read. You can fire the librarian but you can’t take her collection development skills away!
Good things to look forward to today. I have been eating properly for two days which also calms me down quite a bit.
