I made a discovery today.
One that will forever change my life.
I loathe grocery shopping. Everything about it. And of course the most economical place to shop near me is walmart. Of course it is. And since I live my life the way I do, I am there several times a week picking up the2 things I forgot the time before, the cycle never ends. Today was a more significant trip though since my kids are home all week with nothing better to do than snack, snack, and snack. Cord had ten pieces of toast today. You get my point.
As I walked through the parking lot I happened upon my ipod so i popped in my earphones. It was like walking into another world. All of the tension I normally feel when I walk through those doors was gone. I didn't take them out once the entire time I was there and it was the most peaceful hour of my life. I actually mosy'd. I didn't even care that I got into the longest line with what turned out to be the slowest checker, maybe because I wasn't strategically analyzing every line predicting which one would go the fastest. and then getting angry when mine inevitably doesn't. I was simply relaxed, and didn't even notice the loads of inconsiderate people and kids around me screaming and pushing and begging.....
So next time your out, and wish someone else would do your dirty work for you, reach for your listening pleasure and enjoy instead. slow paced albums work best.
I highly recommend Adele's 21.
Not just for medicating through Walmart come to think of it but because it is pure bliss.
It's a spring miracle.
