Notes to self… page 77

Day 142 – 08/01/2020

  • Are half-finished projects during this long dry spell eating your lunch? Pick one and do it – the morale boost gives you a natural high.
  • If you’re having trouble concentrating, thus playing hell with pleasurable reading, try an anthology of short stories – they’re engaging without the commitment.
  • Is resentment churning because stupid people are making the chaos worse? Revisit times when you were stupid, willfully or otherwise. It won’t help… but it makes you lower your voice a little.
  • When the day has reached peak stasis, you’re ready to break out of your skin suit, and you feel yourself becoming languidly unhinged, do what the fitness watch says, “MOVE YOUR BODY!” Keep moving until you lose the urge to do the only honorable thing by committing hara kiri.
  • If you can’t google out the most perfect way to be healthy, start with less food and more motion – the details will follow in good time.
  • Since we picked up 15 more COVID cases in the county yesterday, sticking to the cave continues to be a good option.
  • When you go really quiet for a few months, your awareness expands and you notice just about everything.
  • Owning everything is a weakness – life isn’t all about you, so don’t take it too personally.
I care nothing for revenge… only peace.
