“A Florida Cold Snap!”

There’s a million things that I should have been doing today but didn’t. I still have unpacking to do, paperwork to get through and a book to finish editing, yet it was one of those cool, baby blue sky days in Florida. Most days here are beautiful but today was a bit different. We’ve gotten a “cold snap” as they say here, but what it really is is a morning that starts out at 53 degrees with an afternoon high of 78. Yes, that’s a Florida cold snap! Heat on in the morning and the A/C back on by dinner. 

And I love it.

So I decided to embrace this spectacular day of beautiful weather. I sat on my lanai enjoying the cool breeze and the warm sunshine, chatting with the neighbors who walk by now and then. My brain kept telling me to get things done but my soul was telling me that I was doing exactly what I needed to get done: nothing. And as I truly believe, it’s those moments when we think we’re doing “nothing” that we’re actually doing “everything.”

We’re stopping to smell the roses. We’re embracing the wonder of a beautiful day. We’re basking in the breeze and warm sunshine. We’re allowing our mind to slow down. We’re taking care of our mind, body and soul.

“Dolce Far Niente: The Sweetness of Doing Nothing.”

And today I enjoyed just that.

And I’m grateful for it.

Wishing you love and light,

  1. Hey you!!!! Love the post and as to Fisherman’s Village, been there, done that, its nice!!!! Any big private yachts there when you visited?



  2. Love your last post! Easy to loose the person inside, particularly when you are moving twice, taking care of parents, and still trying to hang on to all the other people you love, even at a distance. I am hoping that you are ready for a great Christmas and New Years and that you get to spend them with your parents! Loved the Rumi message too. And one that has been going through my mind lately is that it doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down, it matters how many times you get back up!!!! Hey when do I get to read that steamy novel???


  3. It’s getting easier! I’m working now and have a chance to talk to lots of people all day! It’s going to be a different holiday for sure. And that steamy chick novel will be out soon. My Christmas gift to myself is to work all day on Christmas to finish the final edits. I’m off from work for 5 days so I’ll be able to get it done! Just me, myself and I!


  4. Hey you, if you don’t start writing soon I may have to come down there and beat you up!!!!!!

    Hope you are okay and just working on your book. A lot of us look forward to your inspirational posts!!!



  5. Saw your post and glad you are up and running. But alas we didn’t get you up and going, YOU did!!!!
