When and how do you find time to rest? Are you constantly in motion, reasoning, blogging, tweeting, face-booking, cleaning (well, let’s not get carried away), etc? If you are anything like me, you can’t find enough time in the day for everything. You would have more time if… Trust me, I do and say it too. The problem with this line of thinking is that the right time never seems to come. Whenever something wraps up (IE. school), I will likely add three more activities taking its place.
enter the lady of the spa
Last year I was informally introduced to Pamela Morse, an ingenue who understood the value in letting go and getting silly. We spent the next several months bantering via Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook (yeah I know what you are thinking; who has time for that?), when she DM’d me (direct message) that she had an opportunity she wanted to involve me in.
Oy Veh! What in the world was I adding something else to the pot for? My curiosity took hold and we began talking about mermaids, camps, fitness, spa’s and the empowerment of women. At first it sounded silly and a little crazy, but the more we spoke, the more sense it all made.
The next thing I knew, I was on a plane to San Diego for some reconnaissance work and a little spa treatment thrown in for good measure. Next was a more local trip down to the Atlantis Casino Resort in Reno, where Pam came to visit for a week while doing more mermaid groundwork.
I could get used to this!
We Spa’d down and took several hours wandering between cold-dips, hot jacuzzi, quiet rooms and steam rooms. I had an amazing encounter with the premier mermaid photographer Cate Vail of Sirens Photography. I realized the purpose in all of this unfamiliar luxury. I needed to let go and let be.
There is a time to occupy your head and body with reality. As well there is a moment to wonder in the splendor of your beautiful spirit. Next month I will be going on yet another adventure with Pam and the mermaids in the desert.
Whether you float in the water or burn in the desert, fantasy awaits! After all, life is not about finding yourself, it is about creating yourself. Put reality on hold for a weekend, day or even a moment to rejuvenate your spirit.
