spooky makes a compass


Recommended Posts

it's been a while, friends!

 

here's the brainstorming for this challenge, based on an ACT therapy tool about living into your values. BUT HOW YOU MAY ASK???

 

well.  by tracking my time. i have been playing one particular game a lot lately (genshin impact) and it's taking up too much of my time during the day. there are other things i need to do, i need to make the time. but i need to know where i stand, first. so this might be a stages challenge? what is my next step after tracking my time?

 

finding the ways i want to be spending my time:

- meditation

- chinese

- insurance certification for work

-VARIOUS OTHER THINGS

 

i also used to do daily inspirational quotes so i think resuming that is a good way to get me jump started for the day. i haven't been sleeping well and had my second covid shot tuesday so i'm not feeling the best, but i sat down in the shower this morning and just felt like i needed something new. or something old that's new again. so that's why i'm here!

 

looking forward to going around to all the other threads and saying hi to old friends.....i miss the doodlies!

 

here's today's inspiration:

 

Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you.

challenge details are up, but this challenge is about finding my way so it'll be a little flexible :)

super tired yesterday so i went to sleep early (like 9) and woke up at 4am to my cat meowing at me and then couldn't get back to sleep :( so i played genshin impact...for almost two hours...i love the game but is that the energy i want to start my day with? is that my true north? i don't think so. i think the goal is to cut back, not to stop, so right now just being aware of how much time i've already spent on there by 6am, but no judgement on time already gone. this has to be non judgemental observation of how i spend my time so today's tallies will go here:

 

  • genshin: 4-6am

Especially when you're not feeling too well and focusing is difficult, 1h of course work sounds like a great start. You can do the things!

<33333 SO HAPPY YOU'RE HERE!!

 

yeah i'm still having difficultly focusing, rip, but at least i've done something! we can do this!

tallies:

-genshin: 6 hours

-course: 1 hour

-work: 2 hours

-nap: 3 hours

my energy is really low, so pinpointing the causes of that once i've tracked my time for a few more days will be a good next step. gotta write how long i'm spending on things here without judging myself (very difficult) but i'm trying to just be as honest as i can, because this isn't about looking good, it's about getting good.

I love that this is an observation challenge and has no judgement attached. This is the path of wisdom and balance. 

 

I believe in you.

Be gentle with yourself.

happy saturday!!! i ended up napping again yesterday AND this morning. i'm thinking energy levels are a clear concern, though maybe i'm still recovering from my shot? basically napping and genshin and playing with cats with the rest of my yesterday. more genshin, napping this morning. gonna feed my cats their lunch, they're getting rowdy lol.

also drinking water this afternoon, and thinking about how yes, i need to know how i'm spending my time, but that also having the mental/emotional/physical energy to do the things i want to is something to keep in mind

did an hour of my course, hoping to do maybe 15-20 minutes more later. i'm behind where i wanted to be by now so just upping how much i do a day by a little will help but not overwhelm. definitely harder for me to keep track of my time on weekends when i feel like everything should just stop for a while

i'm keeping my overall life goals in my battle log for now, it'll give me something to refer to when i feel lost, and ideas for future challenge goals. good to have it all in one place! will probably post inspiration and organization/life skills ideas over there too

oh also i've been sitting outside with a cup of tea reading other challenges for inspiration. will probably take a shower in about an hour and maybe try to tackle a bit of my room which is a disaster zone.

Welcome back!  I like the idea of starting with just measuring and assessing.  The non judgmental part is hard but crucial to keep from getting overwhelmed.  We're here for you!  <4
