She sleeps with one eye open…

January 26, 2010

In Bangkok, I made a pact with myself to treat serious decisions as if they were the easiest, as I could no longer be fussed with losing sleep over what felt like (and often were) the most trivial things. Once I started approaching my choices in a zen-like way, it diminished the significance and I took on board a relaxed demeanour which has even been noticed by colleagues. Being ‘the chilled out one’ in a medical firm is a label I am still trying to get my head around, especially given the speed at which it happened. Arms folded, leg jittering and rapidly flicking through the cheese and onion is something I’m more accustomed to. To my surprise, my new found approach is attracting others seeking comfort; I welcomed the unsolicited head resting on my shoulder to the hug behind the cubicles in majors. There’s mutual benefit, I am hugely affectionate and it’s kind of cool knowing that in my serenity provides a kind of maternal comfort.

After meditation class, I came home to find a perfectly good avocado half thrown in the bin. R.A.G.E. There is still a lot to learn.
