365 Letters to Myself
March 13th - Did it again...
Got caught up in my weekend and ‘forgot’ to post, again. Messing with my commitment and integrity. Let’s get back to it, I will not give in. There is always something to write about, but going to admit, have felt a bit challenged. Either I wonder if I already wrote about ‘that’ or is ‘this’ sounding in a way I do not want to portray or am I ‘boring’ myself. Typical over analyzing – which I seem to be bugging me with. I get something stuck in my thoughts and beat it to death!
Wouldn’t it be great to flip on/off. I really need that off switch as a part of my thoughts. Thinking about something, aka beating myself up, has little pluses. Could benefit from the on too as I often have a number of things in my head, and then miss out on what is going on in the moment. As the book, many sayings suggest – all we really have is the ‘precious present’. To date a couple of things that allow me this gift, sailing and golf. Not much sailing opportunity in MN and with a couple of feet of snow still on the ground, no golf to be played – haha. I will keep trying the morning meditations. Interesting too, listening to my playlist is showing promising signs of keeping me in presence. Hmmm, is writing also?
Presence, an ever eluding, potential gift to myself.
Hmmm, not giving in…day 222!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
