Nothing at all

Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing at all. This is the advise given to most parents. Whether the parents have small children or grown children. The advise is given in a meaning that it’s best to let them figure it out themselves. I was thinking about this statement, as I was sitting in my horse pasture. My horse was tied, standing still beside me, and I just sat there, both of us, doing nothing at all. It was peaceful, only the sound of her hoofs stomping the ground every now and then, and her softly chewing. Not knowing what our next move was going to be, and I really didn’t care. Both of us practicing patience and appreciating being still. It’s rare that we are ever still. The hustle and bustle of everyday life gets us carried away and distracted. We are full of worries and stressing over to do lists and what isn’t getting done. Fretting over bills, doctor visits, school fundraisers, and putting food on the table. We clutter our minds with so many unnecessary fillers that it’s hard to appreciate life. We go, go, go, and never give our bodies or minds a break. We have somehow trained ourselves that we are never allowed to stop. So, as I sat there, doing not a thing and not knowing my next move, I told myself “sometimes the best thing to do is nothing at all”.
