And I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, ‘If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is’.
Status: good. tried a new routine this morning. Decided to get up and get moving like I was going into the office. It helped that I was due to be booted from the unit for top-to-bottom cleaning after the construction, so I needed to vacate the space anyway. In any case, I kicked off the day just like I used to when I was still going into an office for work, except without the commute, and then started working after the morning start-of-the-day ritual of shower, food and meditation.
The end result?
Good. No, very good. Excellent. Productive. Very fucking productive. Turns out that the old routine is optimal for me. I guess 20 years of acclimation will do that to a person, or maybe it’s just a good fit for my personality. Finding myself less distracted, or less willing to allow myself to be distracted by things like, I don’t know, a video of a hamster licking his balls on YouTube. You know, high value activities which are a productive use of my time. Also riding a wave of encouragement after having such a good start to the day and very productive morning.
