The constant chaos of random thoughts, to-do’s, inspirations, notes, ideas, etc.
are always swirling around in my mind.
spinning and whirling happily, creating and having fun
and busy, busy all the time- which I totally LOVE.
I also have been trying to add in some more quiet time to meditate the past couple weeks. I have done it before and it is amazing when you can do actually steal a few minutes to rejuvenate.
taking my time to enjoy a few quiet moments in the morning
Okay. Confession time.
I do not have an easy time quieting my mind.
I start out meditating and am quiet for about 2.78 seconds.
my tapping foot is telling me that I have a list a mile long of things I really should do
and that the list just got longer when I was sitting quietly enough
to remember all.those.things. that I also wanted to remember to jot down.
well, you get it.
I am working on it though and if you haven’t ever meditated- don’t give up.
It truly does help spur your mind to new levels.
(And help you remember everything you wanted to jot down before you forget 😉 )
#3. La Boheme
The highlight of my week this week was a night out to the opera.
My husband took me for an evening performance of La Boheme
and a night at the Fairmont in San Francisco.
If you have been reading my blog for any length of time- you know that I love opera.
As in. LOVE opera- and my favorites are by the great Puccini.
I have seen La Boheme before- and I absolutely loved it- but simply put-
this performance of it completely, utterly knocked.my.socks.off.
I was smiling and swooning inside with tears brimming in my eyes the entire first act as they fell in love and talked about what made them who they are
and tears were rolling down my cheeks with sadness when it ended.
I won’t share what happens in case you are planning to go sometime
I am one of those people who start getting choked up with butterflies in my stomach
at just the first few inklings
and this was an absolutely incredible performance – honestly the best I have seen.
I was so moved and enjoyed it so much.
If you are near SF and have a chance to go see it- I highly recommend it.
Tickets are also 40% off right now- so you know what I’m thinking,
yep, I might have to go again 😉
