A quote from Mindfull balance blog, great quotes always.

Doing nothing does not mean going to sleep, but it does mean resting — resting the mind by being present to whatever is happening in the moment, without adding on the effort of attempting to control it. Doing nothing means unplugging from the compulsion to always keep ourselves busy, the habit of shielding ourselves from certain feelings, the tension of trying to manipulate our experience before we even fully acknowledge what that experience is.

Sharon Salzberg, How Doing Nothing Can Help You Truly Live

.
.
Doing nothing for me was accepting me at my saddest, lowest points of life as fine without having to perform extra chores to just be normal.
.
I always thought I needed to do special things to be accepted, normal after a childhood of complete criticism.
.
Thinking myself unworthy, flawed, doing nothing was not easy, feeling vulnerable needed to be accepted, felt, lived.
.
This part of the journey changed me, once I accepted me, all of me, a calm entered my life for the first time.
.
PTSD healing must incorporate accepting all of us and be ok with doing nothing at times.
