Naweek

 

Saturday morning parkrun: ended up walking halfway through when my achilles tendon start hurting. Time to nurse myself a little bit. 31st, 41 minutes.

 

Then I went to watch our opening match for the rugby world cup. Afternoon nap

 

Sunday I took the dogs for a swim, went to the workshop, afternoon nap.

 

A lot of youtube, no freecell and I completed a book.

Big risk you've taken, there. ;) Enjoy the stand.

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.

I was sort of hoping things would kick off on their own, but for some reason my brain is still in winter mode.

 

Woensdag

 

Freezing cold and windy today. We had some rain last night, our second little bit for the season, but the cold was unexpected.

 

I installed Tetris on my phone. 

 

1. Very Zen. Managed that by staying away from a meeting, actually two. I just heard enough to know that I am glad I missed both.

 

2. Cleaning hasn't happened yet.

 

3. No writing

 

4. No freecell

 

5. Laziness is a strange concept.

Another day of things just not happening. And I think it is caused by the pain in my ankles. It will take a while to get that sorted out. Seriously considering not doing parkrun this week, not even walking. Pain sucks.

This. Be ready to brace yourself and go parkrunning again when your ankles will be better but, for now, limiting the strain on them is probably a good idea.

 

Fancy some yoga in the mean time (minus the ankle using postures, of course)?

I read something today and it made me think of you. I hope you don't mind me sharing. 

 

I am reading Tony Robbins book Awaken the Giant Within. In the chapter I am reading he is talking about changing the dis-empowering words we use. His suggestion is to change the word lazy to 'storing energy'. It makes me smile and it is hard to feel lazy when you are happy, for me at least.

 

As for benchmarks, it might be hard work but why don't you try something like asking yourself, what categories of things must I work on to not feel lazy (for example, cleaning something inside, cleaning something outside, working, meditation, writing etc. And then one day just take note of what you did that day in those categories and ask yourself, was I lazy. If the answer is yes, next day try to do one thing more and then ask yourself again. This might help you figure out just how many things you feel you must do not to be lazy. Sometimes I feel very unproductive so I try to list all the things I did that day and I realize a lot of the time, I actually got a lot more than I realized done.

I used to do yoga, I should start again, at present my computer/device condition is such that I cannot use it in the only room in the house with enough space. It is not my clutter.

Thanks. I used to be better at the positive self talk.  I've had a bad last two years, and no real relief in sight.

 

Naweek

 

I didn't even go to the workshop this weekend. I skipped Parkrun, took the dogs for a walk, went to watch rugby, and spend the afternoon shredding leaves and taking it to the compost heap. 

 

Sunday I did nothing. 

 

My ankle still is uncomfortable. I do not even like walking.

 

I am concentrating on going to bed earlier.

Sorta trying to get things done. I  actually started to make something today that has been bothering me for over a year.

 

Things are extremely slow at work. My father is being stupid. I listened to him apologising to someone for not paying an account and five minutes later tell an estate agent not to try and sell his rental property.  He has been talking about selling it for more than 20 years. 

 

I need to talk to someone.

I do not really have any idea what happened during the last week. My brain is kept on a sort of even keel with medication, and I am sort of coping. 

 

My ankles are still not really well. I have skipped Parkrun for the past 3 weeks, it is not good for me not to exercise but I just do not have any energy.

 

Insert bad word here.
