I am having a busy day early meetings, a HR problem with a person in the team, etc. Had another coffee, took a 10 break and walked around outside (working from home) ... but it did not work. I felt like I was in a weird funk. So rather than struggle with this feeling to set myself right walked over to the garage. Locked the door. Grabbed a paddle ( I love and hate) about 1 1/2” wide, 3/4” thick, the contact part about 8” long .. with a nice handle. Walked over to a stool in the garage, dropped my pants, partially bent over the stool and decided I needed 25 as hard I could give them across my bottom to straighten out my mood.
I started doing my best to get as full a swing as possible, hard as possible, with a clear smack sound and contact across both cheeks. Starting at the bottom just on the top edge of my thighs and working up and then back down. I applied the strokes as fast and hard as I could while still maintaining power, accuracy and speed.
At 15 I really wanted to stop, but started with the commitment of 25 so I pressed on. I could feel myself start to tremble and hint of beginning to perspiration. I knew I was making a point to myself now. When I reached 25 , I wanted to give myself the hardest and best swat yet. I missed doing that, so to be true to my plan I tried 2 more time, get that particular swat on number 27.
Now back at my desk, tingling and twitching with a slight throbbing sensation.
I feel much more motivated.
Just wanted to share..
Have a great day.
