Today Is A Day Off: A Rainy Day’s Thoughts

Today is a day off. I’ll write a little about my thoughts about my calmness.

The calmness on a rainy day

Two days ago, I experienced a fresh feeling. That was calmness.

That was a rainy day. I stayed at home. It’s one of my fortunes that I can stay home and don’t have to go out on such a rainy day.

Recently, I have had busy days because there were a lot of things I wanted to try. For example, I have been fascinated with organization, drying fruit and vegetables, baking bread, and fermentation. There are still many things that I want to try. To fulfill my curiosity, there is not enough time!

Repairing my socks

But that evening, I stopped all of these activities. And I brought out the sewing kit and repaired the holes in my socks. Perhaps that was because it had been raining. Silent rainy sounds made me calm. So my inner voice told me to do so.

I also like such low-value work. Perhaps many people think that repairing our socks is an activity that doesn’t create much value. Socks are one of the cheapest parts of our clothes. We can buy it easily.

But I wanted to do it. And the sewing work gave me deep fulfillment. Perhaps it is because I want to live a self-sufficient life. To be more precise, I want to live as self-sufficiently as possible. So I want to take care of my belongings and use them for a long time.

Such activities might not create much value. But it fulfills me. Sometimes I intentionally spend time like that.


So, I was able to spend some calm time.

Sometimes, such a time would bring us deep fulfillment.
