The invitation to describe my Perfect Day, from start to finish, is a real challenge. There are so many ‘things’ that I love to do – how could I compress them all into a single Perfect Day?
A theme of Perfect is easier to contemplate, to imagine unfolding in the present moment.
I wake up to the dawn chorus of birdsong. I feel well rested and am looking forward to this awesome day! I meditate on my slow deep breathing, on the Energy and Light filling me from the inside and radiating into my immediate environment, into my greater world, into the Universe. Feeling light and energised I choose which course I will adventure out on for my early morning run – along the beach, the estuary path or residential streets past homes where most people are still sleeping peacefully. It is glorious running so early, when the day is fresh and new, and I think and plan and breathe to the steady rhythm of my feet caressing the earth in Blessing.
I look forward to my breakfast – a smoothie compilation of great fresh fruit and veges, and steaming mug of aromatic coffee. The day stretches ahead. I may have a few Acupuncture consultations booked – my passion in practice. I feel so grateful to be able to share this knowledge and expertise – and my heart sings when my clients benefit. I could spend some time reading and researching, planning future treatment sessions.
I could write my next blog post. I could write a letter to a loved one. I could spend time visioning and reflecting on current projects.
Lunch time! Perhaps meet a friend to share lunch and a catch up. Or create a meal from home grown produce and sit in the garden watching the birds, listening to the ocean. I could spend a few hours working in the garden, or creating and crafting some form of handwork. I could read for pure enjoyment. What about going to the movies, or browsing through the shops in a local mall just for the fun of it?
Late afternoon is a perfect time for a coffee and email check. What is happening in my world? Time to also check that I have not left anything undone that needs to be done today. I am feeling relaxed and satisfied with the way my day has unfolded, with all the events and people that have featured in my Perfect Day.
Dinner time approaches. I could be meeting a friend for dinner and an outing to the theatre or an event. I could be planning a quiet evening at home with a simply delicious home cooked meal enjoyed by candlelight. The time after dinner is one of my favourite times. I feel a sense of order and completion once the dishes are washed, and the kitchen and table are cleared. Now I may finish off any last tasks for the day.
My evening shower is a calming and cleansing ritual, a time to wash away any cares and to express Gratitude. Gratitude for all the events and the spaces in between; for the people I have encountered; for thePerfect Day that I have been gifted with. Time now to read a bit, to reflect some more, and to slip into a deep and peaceful sleep, to awaken fresh to my next Perfect Day.
Does my Perfect Day inspire you to define your own Perfect Day?
