Today has been a perfectly wonderful day.
I decided to practice do-over days, so should I ever again have an uber-challenging day like I did earlier this week, I will have already perfected my ability to simply start my day anew.
Brilliant idea that that is, I can’t say I woke up this morning thinking that’s what I’d do. No I simply let the circumstances of the day lead me into it. I had an early morning Skype call planned with an overseas friend and I was just pouring myself a second cup of coffee, getting ready to settle in, when it occurred to me to check my calendar. And lo and behold I saw the call was actually scheduled for tomorrow.
I was in the wrong day! And I thought, well let’s not waste the momentum of that. There’s no reason I can’t have as many days as I want during any particular day. Why not? And in that moment I decided I’d practice do-over day.
Who knew it could be easy. There’s nothing very complicated about it – just gleefully shouting “do over” and there it is. I didn’t have to wait for something I didn’t like to happen to do over – I just did it whenever I felt like it. And what fun!
In one of my days today I fell in love. It’s true. I discovered Maira Kalman’s book The Principles of Uncertainty. I’m swooning I tell you. Swooning.
In another of my days I was digging around in my purse looking for something and realized I hadn’t unpacked the little baggie given to me after my dental hygiene appointment. And when I peeked into the bag it wasn’t the usual new toothbrush imprinted with the dentist’s name and number. No, it was a perfectly marvelous silver glittered toothbrush! Seriously! I was so delighted I declared a do-over right that moment so I could go brush my teeth. And I’m happy to report having a glittery toothbrush definitely ramps up the fun factor of brushing.
I’ve known for a long time, as my guides are always talking about it, that one of the easiest ways to maintain a high vibration is to literally lighten up and have fun. I was thinking about that while I was brushing my teeth with my spiffy glittery brush, and how I wish sometimes I could just scrub my brain. Or better yet, use mental floss. And boom, there it was – an anagram flash. They don’t come to me often – I have to use an anagram generator usually – but this one came in unaided. What is mental floss? Flotsam lens. That strikes me as hilarious, and yes, I’ll have more of that please. Show me the flotsam and I’ll do my best to get rid of it.
Speaking of anagrams, did you catch Ye Savor Odd is Do Over Days? Just checking.
I’m about to call another do-over soon. I have lasagna baking and the house is smelling wonderful. And I think it will be fun to start over so I can have lasagna for breakfast.
Now what about you? Ever do do-overs? Find a fun surprise in your bag lately? Have a favorite anagram? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
