I made sure to get a few minutes of meditation in this morning after I made it in to work. Then I did a few more at lunch. I think the multiple times per day is a good idea, but I’m not sure if it is better than one longer session. I feel like there is less chance of getting into the meditation groove, but it is also nice to have a few different moments set aside throughout the day.
Took a decent walk at lunch. It is definitely getting warmer again. I played with Theo after work, but I don’t think I can call any of it exercise. I thought about yoga as well, and I’m trying to convince myself that the thought counts.
- I’m grateful for travel mugs and how they almost always keep my coffee warm and, more importantly, out of my lap.
- I’m grateful for the energy of Monday mornings. While I often fall into the, “Oh, the weekend was so short. How am I back at work already?” mindset, I am typically too busy on Mondays to dwell on that for long.
- I’m grateful for the few blackberries growing in our flowerbed. I don’t have any idea how they got there, but they helped introduce Theo to the idea that food doesn’t just come from the store. We still have a lot to cover in that area.
Congratulated someone on their engagement (no, it’s not even the person you think; there are just that many people I know getting engaged). I also send some words of appreciation and encouragement along with it. Again, all electronic kindness, but this is where most of my opportunities lie at the moment.
I’m a little stumped on this one today. It wasn’t a bad day, but not much stands out as being all that positive either. Theo and I did spend some time getting into and out of the car this evening. He enjoyed pretending to drive, and I taught him how to open the doors on his own. I’m not sure if I’ll regret that or not, but I thought it would be a handy skill for him to have, especially since he enjoys hanging out in vehicles so much.
That’s how the Monday crumbled. Hopefully yours was nice.
