‘There are times when in order to keep ourselves in existence at all, we simply have to sit back for a while and do nothing’ – said by Thomas Merton and nicely call our attention again to this true by Arriana Huffinton, I found by reading all kind of things today …
‘Do nothing’ is one of the best things you can add to your to-do list. – she wrote in her capture.
but, I think, these thoughts only work if you yourself are turned on ‘do nothing’ mode.
anyway its true.
But how can I do nothing?
i’ll try it today. somehow.
I already know what I will going to do in order to ‘do nothing’!
I always do something when I do nothing. Automatic things which doesn’t need many attention as like washing the dishes, cleaning a shelf … useful things that I can resolve in 5-10 minutes. (I have special theory about 5-small-thing-to-resolve-per-day actions!
Being always engaged in something, creating accurate stuffs step by step, millimeter by millimeter, for me the ‘stop and smell the roses’ mode is … not easy.
Trying to DO NOTHING, today I organized my shops virtual shelves. New items, new search, new photos, etc. Amusing things, but still is not the BIG NOTHING.
So I tried to doodle my thoughts. What color has the nothing? How can I describe?
Here is my answer. nothing is almost WHITE.
after several days …
even my intention was to give you some informative thought about how I find my ‘do nothing’, I found myself doodling and doodling. That’s my do nothing.
try it. anywhere. anytime. (you know how boring some meetings are !
in the end maybe you’ll find yourself doing something beautiful.
Do n(o/a) thing.
These are some ‘do nothings’ of mine. Postcard, artprints , illustrations …
Some of them are for sale. 😉
