Sacred Life Sunday: Drama-Free
Today is my second drama-free day of the weekend. I set up my weekend so that my normal sources of drama are cut off and I can relax and let go all weekend long. So that I only have in my life people and experiences that are edifying and that carry a peaceful energy.
Yesterday I went to Nisqually Wildlife Refuge again and walked four miles. Then I came home and could hardly move, but in a good way. I took a hot bath with Masada Bath Salts (as per Lori-Lyn's excellent recommendation).
Late at night I made some stuffed peppers for lunch today, the first time I've made them alone, without my friend and cooking coach. This afternoon my priest is coming over for spiritual direction and she and I will enjoy lunch in the garden. I have spent lots of time processing things, too.
It has felt like a precious, sacred weekend so far.
Now I've decided my task will be to learn to make peaceful energy and interactions my new normal. Did you know that my name "Olivia" means peace? It is my highest value.
How do you keep the drama in your life low? If you don't, why not?
