Sweet Relief

The Logical Heart Knows Best

It’s such a relief when you’ve finished your work shifts for the week, you can stay up as late as you want and sleep in, no alarms. You feel so free and have all these plans in your head for how you’ll enjoy your days off.

I’m always overly ambitious and think I’ll get so many things done like I have loads of time and the time just flies by before I know it, it’s back to work again.

Time for me to tighten up my routine again. I make a list where I can see it, that lays out my daily activities and time allotments. It’s highly effective for me. And if I don’t get to do everything, it’s okay, I don’t beat myself or get overly obsessive about it. I’m just happy that I’m making progress 🙂

I was supposed to make my quarterly goals in January, now it’s March, oopsie. I’ve made a lot of changes since then and have met some major goals, like getting out of nursing 🙂 So this week I’ll set some goals for this next quarter.

I’m also doing Steve Pavlina’s Stature course which I’m thoroughly enjoying. I’ve fallen behind, but you can do it at your own pace, I want to catch up soon though because it’s wonderful doing it together as a group, he’s releasing the lessons as he creates them. I love the immediacy and synergy of the process. It’s like a co-creative effort. I’m learning so much from his example.

Also on the agenda taxes, ugh, lol. I’ve worked so many places, it should be a joy to get them done, heh… yay for online Turbo Tax, it’s made my life easier.

On Saturday I’m going to see Oprah on her 2020 Vision Tour. It’ll be nice to do something out of the ordinary like that. I splurged and bought a ticket months ago. It’s funny how I also think about how I’m gonna have to drive to a new destination and find parking, etc and it makes me tired and anxious, lol. That just means I need to get out more often! I’m out of practice.

Life is so simple and everything is right at my fingertips here, it’s so lovely that I don’t feel the need to seek very far. I’m not searching for external distractions so much anymore. My contentment is rising the more loving changes I make. What a relief!

My goal for this month is to develop a Facebook social learning unit group and to also get back into daily writing on Carokashu. It seems that things are stabilizing here, another big relief.

I’m breathing easier, I don’t have a cloud of dread hovering over me, hounding me, weighing me down. I’m getting lighter and lighter by the day. Literally, too, my pants are getting baggy and falling down, lol. And I haven’t even been exercising, go figure.

I’m not forcing myself to do things that aren’t aligned with me and what a difference that makes. It’s just common sense to do what’s right for us, we did it naturally as children, but the world tricked us into thinking we had to do otherwise, to conform.

We become trapped into doing what makes us the most money even when it’s doing us in. Honestly, how many health problems do people suffer because they’re doing things that are wrong for them? What if we all broke free and did what’s right for us, the things that bring us peace and relief? Would everything fall apart, or would it actually all fall into place?

What changes can you make that would bring you more peace and relief?

Maybe that will be a good topic for my Facebook social learning group 🙂 I’m getting excited about it now!

Sweet relief, ahhh 🙂
