Why Nothing can be Something Special

Why Nothing can be Something Special

I did something very unusual during the Christmas holidays. I did absolutely nothing. And it was fabulous!

Usually the Christmas season is one of the busiest and I could have filled my calendar with massage therapy appointments every day. Traditionally, I also have always been accessible to clients and rearrange my schedule when they have urgent or last minute requests. But this year, I did the unthinkable (for me!) and closed shop.

It was the first time in 10 years that I did not work between Christmas and New Years’. When people asked me why, they expected to hear that I had a grand plan or exotic holiday plans. But I was like a kid playing hooky. I had no plans and no list of things to do. Just a glorious blank slate each day.

I could have made appointments or caught up on projects or visited friends but something inside me insisted that I needed only one thing. Me. Doing nothing. No pressure. No expectations. Just a glorious gift of being alone with my thoughts. Each moment became special because it was so simple and pure. And when the two weeks were over, I felt more rested and centered than I have in years.

Nothing became everything that I needed. And I highly recommend it!
