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.
