Happiness Month_Day Ten

Day Ten
Three Gratitudes_30/ 63
          I'm grateful:
28_that David has been gainfully employed at a very good job, where he’s respected and able to do work he respects, for over a decade.
29_that we live in an area where fresh valley-grown produce is easy available
30_that they invented Netflix and conveniently located its headquarters, and one of its distribution centers, right down the street

One Positive_10/ 21
Despite what I've been saying over the last couple of days, I got all obsessive obsessive obsessive today and completed, basically, all the remaining verses, about 11, for Lauren's little book. So YAY!!
          I did one act of doing something beyond the normal: Actually, not so much. I guess I can't figure out a way to be beyond-the-normal everyday. I'll just have to try harder tomorrow.
          I did exercise, Actually, not so much...David was home so dancing, yeah...no and it was cold out and...and...and I just didn't
          I did meditate, I did, again using my iPod, for 35 minutes.

Eleven days to go.

Yeah, I'm having a tough time with that one too. *scratches head*

To tell you the truth, one thing I am doing is trying to be a better lj friend, commenting with more thought given to what I say, commenting to everyone on mission101, reading little stories I wouldn't normally and commenting yah yah yah. I feel good in the doing of it, but unexpectedly, people are responding nicely.

I think, like you, I'm not around RL people much. David daily, friends periodically and in sort bursts, Lauren so, that basically leaves people on LJ as my main way of going a little beyond the normal.

I don't want to say this is what I'm doing in my post, it seems weird to say that what I'm doing is trying to be nicer to my LJ friend, but such as it is.

I've been trying to do a better job commenting myself, I used to rarely comment, or I'd keep it short and terse. Often I had no clue what to say. Since I've been trying to comment more often, I've slowly gotten to know a few people a little better, i.e., gotten used to the way they "talk" to me and more relaxed about talking to them too. I found it really helped me think of things to say in response to a post that would've stumped me several months ago.

Oh duh - that hadn't even occurred to me. Of course it's going to be hard to do anything out of the ordinary if I'm a hermit 90% of the time. LOL

'I've been trying to do a better job commenting myself,'
This is very cool and I've noticed!

'...if I'm a hermit 90% of the time.'
Exactly. I'm finding that when I do go out, I make sure to do something out of the ordinary just so I'll have something to write about :)

I'm envious of those who can meditate. My husband can manage to do that when he chooses but I just can't do that, even though I know it helps.

This is probably the fifth time I've tried to do meditation, unlike your David apparently, it's never taken for me before. I'd get so antsy I couldn't stand it. It's the music, using my iPod, that's made all the difference this time.

Can you pick up your Netflix or do you still get it in the mail? I would be at their doorstep every day.

No, sadly, we must still wait, but our turn-around time is pretty fast. I think?
