|(Via Cherokee Rafting)|
Lots of people will get out of the raft and float along in the water. I like to stay in the boat and enjoy the scenery. I also have a secret fear that I won't make it back in the boat before "Tablesaw."
So anyway, The Doldrums. I was thinking about how in life there are periods of chaos (the rapids) and period of peace (the doldrums). For all intents and purposes I am in the midst of the doldrums. I am enjoying. The thing is though, I am still on the edge of raft ready to go. I don't want to be caught by surprise when chaos comes. I don't want to find myself unready and get dumped into the mean part of life.
So what do you do in the doldrums? I am trying to keep my house clean. My husband fed and myself busy. Not too busy, just busy enough. I am finding new hobbies or old hobbies that are new again. I am thinking about what I could be doing or maybe even should be doing in order to make my life more chaotic. I don't know if there is something better or worse to do. I don't want to find out. I do know that I want to be one of those people who jumps into the water while its calm and fully surrender to the peaceful season. I guess thats what I'll be working.
