My third day into this journey, and I can honestly say that I have not made a habit out of this yet.
I want so much to develop the thoughts on my 15% from yesterday, but did not allow enough time for note taking between posts. Good lesson learned, but what do I write about today?
My first two days went like this:
Day 1: establish a new goal, and hit the ground running (weekend day)
Day 2: get up early, and get inspiration after stretch and shower (another weekend day)
Day 3: today – rise early (on a weekday now), stretch, shower while thinking about 100 different things to write about, and can’t help but keep looking at the clock and wondering “…can I keep this up and have something meaningful to say in the small time I am devoting to writing/posting?” This all as my professional to-do list keeps flashing in my mind the most important things to get done before 10:00 am and beyond.
My most positive thought as I was stretching and showering this morning was the fact that I have set aside this time to do something that is really for no one else but me in that moment. This is a time nobody is depending on me (or paying me) to do something, and I can use the human gift of thought and inspiration that could be given by nothing other than a caring Father. In the big bicture, this small something will make me better for those around me the rest of the day. You’re welcome :).
Ramblings of day 3 are coming to a close. If nothing else is gained from this experiment, at least I will have done something worthwhile before 7:00 am besides drive to work.
