When I sat down at the desk to work this morning, I thought, “Oh, how do I have ten extra minutes before I need to get to work?” and then I remembered that I hadn’t meditated yet. I set about correcting that error and got about seven minutes in when Theo woke up and wanted to hang out with me. I’m going to try to do a little more before I go to sleep, but no promises.
I did the standard walk with just a small dose (like a pinch in a recipe) of jogging. Just enough to remind me how badly out of shape I am. Just enough to remind me that I should be jogging more.
- I am grateful for the sun. Yes, I know what I said yesterday, but there is nothing like a little sunshine to keep you from that oversaturated feeling brought on by several days of thunderstorms.
- I’m grateful that our thunderstorms haven’t been the kind that spin off tornadoes or destroy property on their own.
- I’m grateful that today is Friday. I don’t think that requires an explanation.
I was kind to Rory, the dog, tonight. I let her hang out with me even though she was freaking out over thunder, even though that sometimes means she will try to claw her way through my back. I know what you’re thinking, but A) of course kindness toward animals counts; and B) I really do want to improve on this one.
Something good from today
Despite being worried about whether or not the weather would interfere with my plans, exercise and other, I was surprised by a pretty nice day. This is why I don’t pay much attention to the weather forecast. And why I try not to worry about stuff I can’t change. Today (and yesterday, actually) was a good reminder of that.
I promise these won’t all be about the rain or not rain in the future. Have a great weekend.
