Sitting at my secretary, everything, the madness, seems arbitrary. (If it Rhymes it MUST be true). Lately it seems that everything has been spinning and spinning, with no signs of stopping. Hard to get a handle on things, let alone see straight. But now I take moments like this to just sit down and just be. Just being is incredibly important to full mental clarity, and lately I believe I’m beginning to understand exactly what that means.
Take today for an example. Last night I took it upon myself to map out my day today, from my very “morning routine” to even posting this blog, and my meditation tonight before bed. (Meditation Monday? haha). Waking up today knowing I had exact plans for myself, no matter how small they may seem, gave me purpose today and I actually got a lot done. Crazy how just a simple thing like a planner could have a profound impact on ones day-to-day life.
I have practically accomplished every, single, thing on my list. Maybe in my actual life with the bigger and much more outstanding goals, planning may not be such a bad thing after all.
I have always been the kind that likes to organize, to keep things tidy (sometimes), so I feel like I have clarity. But if I don’t take a conscious effort on the side to really talk to myself about what it is I NEED to accomplish, it may never get done.
So I’m writing today because, indeed, it was in my planner to do so, but I am also writing to encourage everyone to take the time to reflect on the day you had and the day you WANT to have tomorrow. Write it down, and believe me if you write it down it will be real, and you will accomplish what it is you need to accomplish. Better for you, for your mind, and for your life.
Rants, Raves, and Shenanigans NOT! Sorry 😦
I have been so busy the last few days, and especially yesterday to the point where last night I was in so much pain I did not go to sleep till 3 in the morning haha YAY me!
So I did not prepare for today’s entry buuuut I did, however, write a little something from this book I just got called “300 Writing Prompts” so I figured the days where I don’t post anything at least I’ve got something coming to you guys. Or to whomever reads my stuff haha. Saturday entries were supposed to be more “diary/journal” like anyway so I figure this would be a great substitute and who knows maybe I’ll start doing these more often 🙂
And as for my “Friday Fashion” entry I’ll hopefully be finishing it and posting it by Monday of next week. So look forward to that pwease 😉
What is your favorite way to spend a lazy day?
Lazy days always start out late. “Never set an alarm” is a rule you must follow. I get out of bed and then quickly fall back in cuddling with my favorite stuffed animal, a 26 year old monkey named Keys. But eventually I am ready to get dressed, wash, and play with my makeup. Really it is a new obsession. Play with looks I normally would never do. Trying different things is fun especially when you have no real please to be or anyone to impress.
Whilst all of this is going on I am either listening to my own “In My Room” playlist, or I am watching a playlist from YouTube. Lately it has been CutiePieMarzia, love her to death. Inspiring! Then after I’m dong with all that I’m either fumbling around trying to find something to watch on TV or playing with video games. Nintendo 3DS represent! And XBox 360 as well.
I always try to stay busy and entertained and I love pampering myself, so I’ll always probably give myself a mani/pedi while I’m at it.
Always being good to myself and having fun. No time like now to enjoy your own company.
