Day 2 began at strike of twelve. I did some relaxation yoga in my bed to help unwind, but unwind it did not! My brain would not stop, thinking wildly about my three classes for the fall session – their evaluation papers, their syllabi, their weekly lesson plans, class rosters- it’s never ending.
Anthony awoke to find me not in bed which saddens his heart but we gave hugs and kisses and he gave me my quote for the day, a positive one at that:
“Easy big fella”
to Goober quoting Tracy Morgan in Cop Out
And now Goobs is going nuts chasing his tail like a dog. I want nothing more than to be tired and curl up with the kittens in bed sleep by Anthony’s side but this stream of consciousness is keeping me awake. I have written two and a half pages in my bullet journal already -go me! I am a quarter away from my 500 word daily blog post. I am one glass of water in. Things are turning out very well.
Today’s focus is: have a positive outlook. I want to remain happy and positive. I intend to write down three positive things I did today, for myself and for others. I want to remember to smile and look for the good in every situation. I have a list of to dos that I keep thinking of more to add but don’t want to over whelm myself.
If I am working I assign myself three tasks to each category. If I am not working I up the tasks to four and add an additional category, the To Dos! Theses are usually things that would go by the way side if I didn’t write it down somewhere. I just tune out that part of life and let it pile up, figuratively and literally. So why not push myself on my off days.
I also upped my physical activity to a workout session, over stretching and yoga. This is my motivation to start the day, after I have really woken from my night sleep- should I be so lucky. I hope it gets me pumped to take on the rest of my list with time to spare to add more, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Anthony has recently taken a liking to How I Met Your Mother and I feel our bond growing. I then start to wonder if I am putting all that I can into our relationship. We both deserve the best and we aim, without always succeeding, for the ultimate romance. To shed some love on to that light I think that I will write him a love letter like I used to, when I would pack his lunch before work.
Or possibly a love note like when I used to post Post-Its up with short messages of affection and admiration. I think if he could wake up to something to show him that he is own my mind and no other, he would have a wonderful start to his day.
