    Mindfulness gets Snarky

    Someone barfed at storytime today. That’s an awesome way to begin a challenge, right? Everybody barfs. Challenge goals. Right. Last challenge, I worked on boundaries and mindfulness, and this challenge, I want to hone that a little more. 1. Mindfulness of food. Not just what I’m eating but appreciating the smells, the feel, the taste of food. Paying attention to how I feel after I eat it. 2. Setting boundaries for work. With a new job it’s easy to get sucked into working all the time, and thinking about work all the time. Every day I’m going to do have a mindful step away from work and into relaxation. Maybe I’ll need more time to step away, and will need to exercise, meditate, whatever helps me quiet my brain. 3. Remember to play. Being a grown up is a serious business. I see kids playing and its a fun learning experience. Not everything is a chore, and I’m going to find joy in everyday living and create fun opportunities.

    It is the end of the challenge! Well, it’s been the end of the challenge, but its the official end of this one. I caught my boss’s cold, or rather it caught me. Its not so bad, except I cant breathe, am super snotty, and exhausted all the time. Not bad at all. Lots of tea and soup. I need to be better for storytime! this was not a perfect challenge. The journey towards mindfulness will continue with a few more specific goals. But not today. Today I am back to bed, and I will see you before the challenge officially begins. Good night

    I have reached the end of therapy. I felt so lost and distressed, but then just talking it out, I realized some important themes in my life to change, and I really just needed a mental tune-up to help cope after two deaths of loved ones this year. mindfulness isn't a habit yet, so I'm going to continue to keep it as a daily goal. Now that the weather has finally cooled off, I'm going to walk more for exercise and pay a little more attention to my diet. Having arthritis in my thumb has brought to attention that I can get arthritis anywhere, and I want to lose weight and love my joints. having that diagnosis, I am aware of a dull ache in my thumb that I conveniently ignored before. HOW VEXING. I need to take better care of myself. I'm in the middle of life, and I don't want to spend the second half of it in pain. Blarg!

    You know, I've always been meaning to learn a new language. What a great time to start! Thanks for the positivity and support Thanks Shello. You know, I think it is a good opportunity to help out with the admin part of it. I told her I didn't want to mess up her system, and she confided that there was no system, and that I could create my own, thank you. yessssssssssss

    I slept for a really long time after work today. I was so tired I almost wept after coming home. Storytimes are delightful, but there just isnt any recognizeable system of organization and planning here, and I find myself Feeling frustrated beyond measure. Not my best day, and I cant help but wonder if this hasnt been a terrible mistake. It will continue to be better.

    Recently I've started seeing a new therapist, and this one is a great fit. In the past, my need for help outweighed my dislike of the therapist, and I would get okay enough to leave therapy and say "I hated that guy!" With this new therapist, I feel like this is going to work. Some of the awesome things we'll be working on are my self-esteem and learning to relax. I'M NOT TENSE AT ALL. SO RELAXED RIGHT NOW So this challenge is really more of a journey, and the path looks pretty good ahead. We'll see where it goes. Right now I'm going to practice mindfulness. Taking a deep breath, and noticing something outside the circle of screaming cartoon characters in my brain. Like right now, the house smells like cinnamon sugar, and the sun is bright and shining in the windows so the whole house feels living inside a warm cookie. It's just perfect
