I have really loved the new scroll we are to read. It’s been another crazy, stressful week, with more opportunities to be clear about my choices……to choose peace or worry, stress or surrender. I won some, and lost some.
I love the scroll this month because I really needed and daily benefit from the reminder of how precious every day, every moment really is – so why waste it on things I cannot control? On silly ways of spending time…like browsing the big brag book, also known as Facebook. (as I just typed this, the auto correct of this blog posting software automatically capitalized that word, wow). I have definitely minimized my time there, which I think is great…but I have not completely eliminated it. (thankfully, there are some inspirational words on it, too).
One of my goals is to get to the point of only ‘checking’ it once a day, for no more than 5 minutes.
One cool change I’ve noticed in myself? I am still loving being cell-phone free. I still of course plan on replacing mine, but boy I just love not having the temptation of checking my email many times a day. In fact in the car, not checking it at the many long lights in our area, has helped me become so nice and calm, and able to rehearse my affirmations, the poem and some parts of my DMP that I’ve memorized by now, that I am less affected or riled up by some of the rude drivers on the road, that cut people off etc. It’s like the traffic light calm is spilling over into other parts of my (driving) experience…which has been a struggle for me ever since we moved to this area 5 years ago, by the sheer size of it, and its crowding so much of the time! To me, it truly is a little miracle, and I hope it stays that way.
