gno kicked my o-l-d butt. i couldn’t get a nap in before going out, so i was on ike’s already. but it was super to see all my old raver friends, and to dance for a while.
aunt flo had paid her visit late friday night so by the time i woke up on saturday (after another 5-hour sleep) i was running at about 30% effectiveness.
instead of walking the dogs and laying back down, i went to mickey’s for cribbage brunch and a surprise friend showed up so i stayed longer than intended. i got home around 1230 and laid down and missed a costco run with mom :( she said she had one of the last carts available so it sounded like a blessing in disguise for me that i missed it, but i still feel badly.
i got up around 4 and did my journal spread for next week, read my new cooks illustrated, and played fallout for the evening.
i skipped yoga yesterday for the first time in two weeks, but convinced myself to do it this morning.
today’s lesson is “make each moment count.” and the quote that stood out to me is this one:
The very centered and present Buddha taught us that all suffering is caused by wanting to be closer to or farther away from where you are right now.
matt would always tell me never wish time away when i would say “i can’t wait for the weekend.” i guess that’s about the same.
being in the present is hard for my brain which is very focused on time and numbers and little milestones that need to happen each day.
but, i’m trying.
