When life gets too busy and stressful, I simply take a few minutes and retreat to Anz World. A few deep breaths with my eyes closed are all I need to transport me to my treasured place. The sky is always pale blue with wispy clouds that look like angel’s wings. It’s peaceful there. A few birds chirp melodies, unlike the blue jays who scream in my backyard.
My favorite part is that life is very slow there. I can concentrate. This is a drama-free zone. Only nice people visit me there. No one asks me to do anything. Kenney Chesney and Michael Bublé serenade me in the background. Little gifts arrive at my door in beautiful packages. Things like this happen often in my secluded world. When I am in Anz World, I can quietly reflect on life. This is where my stories come alive.
I think everyone needs a world like mine. It’s not so hard to make it happen. Just close your eyes, quiet your mind… Stop making that mental grocery list right now… Shhhh, quiet your mind. Roll your shoulders and let that stress fall off. Now take six deep breaths. Breathe in. Exhale slowly. Try not to fall asleep like I did initially. I don’t want you to miss your new world.
As you slow down your body and mind, you will begin to see and feel your new world surface. At first, your mind might wander, but after practicing a few times, you’ll want to push those thoughts away. Your new world will call to you. Right away, you’ll notice the colors. They are brighter and all your favorite colors decorate your surroundings. Who knew? You can design your own space and time here. It’s like a mini-retreat and only you have the keys. Now go plan a time to begin this journey.
You are going to be shocked when I tell you that I am a goddess in Anz World. Seriously, my legs are firm and bronzed. When I stretch out in a hammock and raise my leg, I can actually see muscle! Yes! Muscle! Last Monday, I stayed in the hammock all day long just admiring my legs. I can actually get in and out of the hammock gracefully. Why would I ever want to leave my sacred space? My teeth are brilliantly white. My hair is glossy every single day. I never have to shave my legs. My arms are spectacular. A glass of my favorite wine appears magically on my hammock table. It’s pure Nirvana!
Did I mention cellulite totally melts away? Moles and pesky chin hairs are invisible. Annoying phone calls are blocked. Every meal is gourmet and dessert is always high calorie, yet surprisingly there are no calories.
I wonder why I didn’t create my real world to match this one. Well there are a few little details that I need to escape from: five kids, a huge dog, a male cat who had kittens, my wrinkle maker of a husband, annoying neighbors, and………well I can’t continue because all of these things are erased when I arrive and unlock the door to Anz World.
One of the ideas I had in Anz World was to fulfill a dream of writing a book. Did I mention that mentors arrive? Connections come out of the blue. It’s as if someone is taking you by the hand and leading you. Doors open at the perfect time. People come into your life just when you need them. This is why I love Anz World. It’s the closest thing to heaven that I can imagine.
Here’s my first book!
