Lounging About

The Logical Heart Knows Best

I’ve been taking chlorpheniramine for the past 2 days and it’s helping, except I’ve been so sedated, so I gave in today and lounged. I feel so peaceful and relaxed. I watched a cute movie Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel, read the news, ACIM, and Facebook. I meditated and watched a David Bowie video on YouTube. I’ve been horizontal most of the day. I also practiced typing and Duolingo Japanese.

I wore myself out yesterday, did a lot, got my quarterly goals almost done, will finish tomorrow. I’ve decided my body needs more rest than I want to admit. I meant to wake up earlier today to attend a CGC coaching call, antihistamines got me though. I’ll make the next one though for sure.

I signed up for another year of Conscious Growth Club today, yay! I wasn’t sure if I’d have the resources to do it a few months ago, but somehow, incredibly it worked out. I’m so thankful! CGC has helped me so much, it’s been invaluable. So many supportive, caring, open-minded, intelligent, compassionate people who keep me inspired and motivated. It’s so wonderful to connect with people who really care about the impact they make by the way they choose to live while developing themselves to create positive ripples in the world.

Our state Colorado is going to begin reopening next week with details to come in the next few days. It’s vague saying they want to keep it at 65% open with social distancing measures still in place.

Whack a mole begins.

My plan is to order some better, more breathable comfortable exercise masks so I can continue nature walks and the only other outing will be grocery shopping, so I will be continuing the same.

It’s gonna be a quiet, low key summer where I will work on my health and learn new skills and experiment with different ways to express myself creatively until I find a niche where I provide optimal value for myself as well as others in this transitioning world we’re experiencing.

There are so many changes in store for us. We have an opportunity to shape that change. Time for innovation, imagination, kindness, and compassion. What are some ways we can help each other stay rooted in love so we can make the most beneficent choices?

Something that helps me is to remember that I can’t see everything, I’m not omniscient, I’m still learning, I may be mistaken about some of my snap judgments and beliefs. I can always listen, keep an open mind and respond calmly and respectfully, or decline to even engage when provoked.

I can pause and go within, asking what would bring the most love and peace in this situation, to release the grip of fear that may have overcome me, we all are prone to fearful reactions. We’re human. We can also practice empathy and forgiveness while also maintaining healthy boundaries.

I’m having to take lots of deep breaths and lots of counting to 10, lol during this pandemic time. I try not to get exasperated, but I still do, and then I try apathy, but that never lasts, lol. So it’s messy, so be it. Then I laugh because there’s not much I can really do about so many things. So I write in my little bloggy here, lol. And sometimes I still wish I were a robot, it’d be less complicated, heh.

Let not the little interferers pull you into littleness. ACIM
