Good day to everyone. My spirits are in a decent place today. I woke up feeling fresh and full of energy. Lately that doesn't seem to happen. I have been thinking about all the things that make me miserable and I actually wrote them down. Than I took a good look at my list and anything that I was not able to change I removed it from my list and my life. What I had left I decided I could fix. My first goal is exercise. I have been walking the dog twice a day and we go for a fairly long jaunt. That is not enough. I bought vitamins and B-12. I want to be able to walk daily by myself, a power-walk type thing. I have great music in my phone and bright pink ear buds, so today is going to be my first day of power-walking. The next change is my addiction to something so creamy and sweet that I love. Ice-cream. Yup, the cookie dough and the party cake ice-cream are something that I want to ingest daily. Most people go on booze or drug benders, I go on ice-cream benders. No more of that. Yes, I am a smoker. Mostly in the am. with my coffee, and after meals. I am changing my diet first. I don't think I am ready to quit smoking. Mainly because I don't want to at this point in my life. I have to have at least one vice. Who knows? Maybe this time next year I will change my mind. The biggest change I want to make is to have my morning ME time. That is when I meditate and think and write. Since I have moved I have been keeping crazy hours and I noticed that if I don't have my special time in the early dawn, the rest of my day turns to shit. Do any of you have daily rituals that make you feel complete? Things that you do daily to give you peace of mind. I would love to hear about them. Have a great day and Live In The Moment!
