Boss in the middle. – Day 2 Prayer Challenge – Wrap up.

IMG_0430Work 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!
