Work hard, smart and focused. That was the result this morning when I prayed to God and sat in silent meditation. I probably prayed for about 12 minutes or so. 10 minutes go by pretty quick when you are praying/meditating.
15 minutes should come easily next week. So here’s my report on the day;
Today, I felt a peaceful calm. I haven’t felt this way in quite some time. It’s almost too peaceful for what I had going on. There are days where, if I’m being honest, I feel a lot of anxiety. I worry about things and overthink situations. I put pressure on myself and others to accomplish a lot. Today was not one of those days. Today, I felt confident. So confident, that I almost felt like I was outside my body. Strange.
I had a training class where I was learning things I’ll need to perform tomorrow for another group of folks. It is something we do every year, so I understand my presentation, I just need to deliver. It shouldn’t be that hard.
Today, I felt like things came pretty easily, which sort of makes me uneasy. Usually before this event I feel nervous, but I was focused during training today. I really pushed myself to do the work I was supposed to do, at a high level. I took advantage of resources and prepared myself mentally and physically. In short, I’m ready.
When I got home, I remembered my failure yesterday with my daughter, so when she got home from cheerleading tryouts, I reminded her that I loved her. (But I didn’t mention her new hairstyle, which of course she mentioned to her mom). You can’t win em’ all. I then told her that I did notice her hair (which I did), but that I hadn’t said anything because I just didn’t think of it. I don’t know if that helped or made it worse. Oh well. I’m sure I’ll be learning a lot as she enters her teen years. That’s probably a whole separate blog! Haha.
Seriously though, I tried to be courteous to everyone in my home. I believe I did ok today. I’m sure it has a lot to do with my quiet time in the morning with God and the fact that I failed yesterday and refelected on it here. Interesting…
Tune in tomorrow. Going for day three!
