Calm, Cool and Collective

Today I met a very calm person.  I was fascinated by her.  The 3 younger boys had their eye check ups today.  The doctor was this lady that was so calm.  She wasn’t slow or out of it in a duh kind of way.  I was so intrigued with her.

How does one become so calm?  I am a very hyper person by nature.  It is a part of me.  My mind is always racing with thoughts and ideas.  Always.  Maybe this is why I like to read.  Reading and becoming engrossed in a story always me to STOP my mind.  Yet then my mind roams after I close my book.

Sigh.  A week or so ago, I went to the spa with a friend of mine.  It was a whole day package.  I was SO EXCITED!  I have never done anything like this before.

After getting there, we were to change into a robe that was provided.  It was white!  I loved wearing white… it is something that is a luxury in my life. White never stays white.  I buy inexpensive shirts, knowing full well it won’t be a shirt I will wear out too long.  The robe was so soft and I felt so special.

Then came the first treatment:  A facial and a scalp treatment.  I didn’t realize that the two were being down together.  I lay there, in anticipation…  oooh… the lady’s hand was so soft.  I had all sorts of goop put on my face.  It was a long time.  I tried to relax but after an hour (what seemed like 2 hours) I started to wonder if I was ever going to be outta there.  Crazy, eh?  I felt sort of claustrophobic.

Later, after I was done, I realized it took so long because the two were together.  Then there was lunch.  Then… there was my most anticipated 60 minutes of massage.  This was good.  I actually feel asleep for a bit.  I love a massage!!!

Then came the hour for a pedicure and an hour for the manicure.  I am not complaining.  I loved it all.  Yet I realized that due to the nature of my being… ADHD folks are geared for the half a day spa.  It is a day at the spa with all the same treatments, just a little shorter.

As I watched this super calm person today, I wondered what it would be like to have calm in my life.  I wondered what it would be like to have a mind that functions at a normal speed.  Is there such a thing? A normal minded speed?

It really was fascinating to watch.  Sigh.

    OH, how I relate!! It's when my mind is racing at 3am and won't let me go back to sleep that really drives me crazy!! I'm beginning to think that's when I need to write in MY blog… But, I have always considered my ADHD to be a blessing… it certainly contributes to the creativity… And you wouldn't be you without it… and I like you as you are.
