It’s Me Time – Ormoz
I put on my favorite winter jacket and I go to the attic to search for my old ice skates. They are probably covered with dust. It’s been a while since I’ve used them. I need a scarf and a hat. Before I leave the house, I grab my purse and throw in necessary accessories. I call my sister. She will meet me at river Drava. The Drava is icy, and we can skate on it. I start my car running. Off I go.
It is a sunny day, but it is freezing. Although I have my warm glows on I feel my fingers are cold. Brrr! Still, I look forward to this adventure. I put my ice skates on, I feel the excitement. In the same moment, adrenaline rushes through my body, and I get a little bit scared. Will I step on the ice and fell and hurt myself? And here we go!
Just when I was in the flow, I fell on my butt. Seriously? After no more than a couple of minutes on ice? Everything happened so fast. My sister just stood there. She didn’t know she should laugh or call the ambulance. Guess I should put my ice skating career on hold. I stood on my feet quickly. I’m pretending like nothing happened, I’m continuing with skating. It will not happen again. Wrong! It happened. Not just once. And I wasn’t the only one. My sister felt ice on her butt also. It doesn’t matter how many times you fall. Like in life. There are ups and downs. The important thing is to know how to get back up again. My fear disappeared. I’m enjoying every moment on the ice.
While I was ice skating and observing the nature around me, I had the time to put my thoughts together. It is late afternoon now. We’re catching last sun beams. You should be here to see this spectacular image. I love nature, and this kind of scenes sweep me off my feet. I see now I need more moments like this, moments just for myself. I live very dynamic life. But from time to time I need to disconnect from everything if I want to keep up with the pace life dictates. Don’t get me wrong, I love my life as it is, but I need to take time for myself and my loved ones more often. And days like today are perfect for it. I feel relaxed, I feel inner peace.
Now when I’m in front of my computer in my armchair, with a cup of tea in my hands, I’m wondering when I will be able to repeat this adventure. If I tell you the truth, I never imagined I would enjoy ice skating so much. It’s getting warmer each day. Ice on river Drava is melting. Ice skating season is closed. I will have to wait until next winter. In the meantime, I’ll have to think about some other way to stretch my butt muscles.
Till next post!
