When we hear the description of someone who has their head in the clouds, it’s usually derogatory. It usually means they are not focused, or they are ditzy, or just plain not present. Well sometimes, I have my head in the clouds, and you know what? I like it there!! Down here, I have to think about the US, ISIS, crises, braces (I have three kids, come on!), spaces (I can’t put two after a period now? WTF?!), and so much more. So every once in a while, I want to disappear in to the white fluffy cottony clouds that provide my head some much needed rest. It may be a minute or two, typically when I’m standing at my kitchen counter in the morning and I zone out, only to be brought back by my most adorable 8-year-old clapping loudly in front of my face! Yeah, you know that feeling, where you sort of disappear and end up in Oz for a second or two, because you know when you come back you sort of feel like Dorothy and that you definitely had a run in with a witch and some flying monkeys somewhere in there. I kinda like the feeling, it tends to reinvigorate me in the moment and I know I’m now present, and focused, and ready for the next task at hand. See how I spun that? Or is it spinned, or spang? Hmmmm……
CLAP! Ok! I’m back! You shoulda been there, it was beautiful. Well, you can go there! Here is your assignment: Click on the picture of the clouds above and give yourself permission to put your head there, even for just a minute. Look at the different shades, look at the different shapes, feel yourself floating along with the clouds, feel your head resting against the welcoming softness that is the clouds. Allow yourself to go there, heck set an alarm if you need to, either way, you’ll feel revived, you’ll feel lighter, and you’ll move forward through your day knowing that you can put your head in the clouds whenever you need to.
