Happiness Month_Day Fourteen

Day Fourteen
Six Gratitudes_42/ 63
          I'm grateful:
40_that I have one of best mother-in-laws ever
41_that David and I, despite serious difficulties, have made it 25 years married
42_that I have had Barbara since 1974 and Cindy since 1999 as my best friends.

I did what I want to daily plus had quite a bit of time left for my little story. Lauren called to say that despite being sick, she had taken her final exam today, she thought she might need to put it off until Thursday when she hoped she might feel better, so, I get her tomorrow!!!
        I did one act of doing something beyond the normal: If only. As a friend mentioned, it's hard to do beyond the normal, if you're a hermit 90% of the time. Such as it is. With Lauren home, maybe I can shake this one up a little. Maybe get some beyond-the-normal niceness going on. Could happen.
          I did exercise: I danced...danced...danced fifteen minutes away!! And I worked in the garden, actually planting instead of only just preparing.
          I did meditate: I did my not-quite-so normal 50 minutes with my iPod. I was vaguely stunned when I registered the time :) I do this first thing, right after showering, because it seems to energize me and then, it's off to the garden.

Seven days to go.

It was killing me listening to her on the phone, sounding so sick, and not being able to rush over the hill and get her. She is doing better, although she stills has a pretty bad cough, but i am doing much better with her here :DD

What a friend you are to come all this way to see a friend play. Please let me know.

LOL!! I'm actually going out in public today, real public, where I'll have to talk to people beyond saying "A pound of rye with caraway, sliced please". We'll see what happens. *g*

I hope Lauren feels better soon! :)

'I hope Lauren feels better soon!'
Thank you. She's still coughing away but at least she's doing it here instead of in her chilly dorm.

How'd your actually talking with actual people go? I'll be you did a reasonably adequate job, which is pretty much my gold standard :D

Reasonably adequate. Not that I'm clamoring to do it again so soon, mind you. LOL

Wow! 50 minutes! Can't imagine.

You sound energetic today; meditating must help. Exercise energizes me.

Solid successes must make you feel a sense of accomplishment.

Being able to keep up a kind of routine certainly does make me feel a sense of accomplishment and you're right, I think the meditation does help energize me. thank you for your lovely comment!

Meditating
You had a much better experience with meditating that I did. I found I could meditate - that was a surprise! - but I mostly just didn't want to. And meditating first thing in the morning? Never occurred to me. I am not a ball of fire in the morning, not an early riser, linger over my coffee and my newspaper until 10:00 or 11:00 a.m., then feel like I have to hustle to start my day. Changing that pattern would take a major effort. FanSee

Re: Meditating
I'm still up at 6:30 so after a busy couple of hours, I need a little slow-down. Honestly, I haven't meditated recently, but I still intend to periodically because I have had three or four seriously fine revelations while in my quiet place that have transformed bits of my life, important bits so...yeah, done well, for me, meditation can be a very good thing.
