I was listening to random TED Talks this morning and something in Leila Hoteit talk got me to thinking about memory and memorable. Two main but very different ideas to write about today.
Memorable... maybe my memory is fine, I'm just not engaged in doing much of anything worth remembering?
Memorable - I have this week of time when I planned to be out of the country. Now what do I do with the time? Yesterday I felt good about the time spent. I started and completed an online defensive driving course that will save me money and took more time than I would normally spend. I also completed the next step for the Girl Scout project that I had procrastinated about. Finally I cleaned out and organized ALL my email and online Google drive files and folders! I felt good about it at the end of the day and I feel good about it again today.
So much so that this morning I thought to myself... what can I do today that will make me feel good tomorrow and be fun today? For some reason that is a new thought for me... Write and read came to mind. I only have a ton of books to read. And, OMG, I could use that walking machine and music stand (that I bought and is now in the basement). Wow, I'd feel really great then!
Is this normal? That these things are just now occurring to me? Just curious.
I got off the scale this morning, a couple pounds up, and thought about how good I felt all day when I was a couple pounds DOWN. I then realized that when I indulge or not in food... I'm not depriving myself by curbing my appetite... I'm trading pleasures. I can choose the food in the moment or the good feeling of loosing a pound or two. It's just a choice, not good or bad, right or wrong. Wild, huh!?
What shall I forgive this day to amuse and delight?
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
