A few days ago its was Freezing!! then a day later it snowed now it has turned into rain.
A downpour of warm water yet it’s not melting the snow quickly. There is about 2 feet of ice snow then 2 feet of pure cloudy puffy snow. The rain is soaking in like a yummy snow cone. Just don’t eat the yellow colored…*wink
I needed to create a river in the gutter to flow down into the sewer, but the slush was a perfect Slushy consistency. So like a weirdo with my rubber boots and oversized jacket jamming to Beats1 radio on my Ipod I’m literally rowing myself nowhere.
But did I ever create a current for the whole street to be flood free.
I went to the corner to where the grates for the sewer are and shoveled them open. The people driving by slowing down to smile and give me a thumbs up.
It felt good to allow my childish imagination be allowed to explore and fix a problem instead of looking at it like a chore or job.
It made me realize just how much I look at life as a chore. everything that done seems to always have a next step. But while I was out there in the rainy snow I didn’t see any steps to follows….just what I wanted to accomplish.
Something that started out a safety measure for the many kids walking by after school as to not slip and fall…not to mention the postal service the shoveling need to get done, but I was not intending on bailing the road from sinking.
I instantly without even knowing it, my instincts choose the creative free path.
Have you allowed your inner child to help you out when you need a helping hand. I ask myself all the time, “If the little me had to spend the day with the grown up me, would I be inspired”
