morning babble / Monday 06-27-22
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!
So, this past weekend – Saturday night – we were at Mimi and Papi’s place for another birthday dinner for my son, Elliott. He has had so many – I’ve gained weight because of his many birthday dinners. Anyway, at one point, both our kids were in the pool and I went to sit by the pool watching them. My mind was racing. I could not relax. I needed to do something. I left my phone back up on the patio area on purpose. I don’t believe that I have a real issue – something’s there – but not an addictive issue. I just couldn’t settle my head. I closed my eyes and tried to lasso it in. At one point, everyone checked on me to make sure that I wasn’t sleeping – I absolutely wasn’t. If only they knew what I was trying to control upstairs. Anyway, it got me thinking of meditation again. I know, I know. Eye roll. But – it is something that I’ve dabbled with before and makes sense.
I downloaded the Sam Harris Meditation App – Waking Up
188 days until EXIT PLAN
GOAL SETTING MONDAY & REVIEW –
Deep Work “Power Hours” – basically, 2 hours of time to work my projects – videos, scripts, writing, editing, research. I’m looking to schedule these times 3 to 4 times a week.
I also want to have hour reading times.
and then Meditation times!
