Day 177 – I Ran a 5:51 Mile with No Training

Day 177 – I Ran a 5:51 Mile with No Training

I'm extremely happy about my day. Work was work, as usual. When I asked for help on a few tickets I was told I need to pick it up, so I guess I will start to pick it up to the best of my ability. I've been told things like this before in all of the jobs I've had...

Day 176 – Talk About Long and Tiring!

Day 176 – Talk About Long and Tiring!

Wow, what a long and tiring day! I only worked on two locations for my job today, one of which was extremely difficult since I had to find gas and electrical lines 200 feet around an intersection. The total amount of lines came in at 20, one short of the number of...

Day 175 – A Nice Note

Day 175 – A Nice Note

It was extremely cold in the morning, I'm talking 1 F cold. As a result things were slow. My batteries were freezing, my toes were freezing, the ground was frozen and I could't get a ground rod in, it was crazy cold to say the least. At some point in the morning a...

Day 174 – Work, Tantra Learning, Work, and Work

Day 174 – Work, Tantra Learning, Work, and Work

Today I went to work, in a car that was more of a sled than a vehicle. I kept getting messages from my coworkers, on the group chat, about how they counted over a dozen crashed cars on highways, and how one even flipped over on its side right next to them. With...

Day 170 – Gifts

Day 170 – Gifts

Last night I found out a distant friend's birthday was either yesterday, or today. I called them and sang them happy birthday, and played a bit of flute in between. Then today I sent them $25 to use for a class or two of yoga. It's interesting to me that I've spent $7...

Day 169 – Energy

Day 169 – Energy

You know these days I don't meditate daily. I wonder how I can go from extreme discipline to none. I want the freedom that comes from routine again, so much, but maybe I'm afraid to commit. Why is that? I doubt in a few years from now I'll be kicking myself for being...

Day 168 – Tired and Tired

Day 168 – Tired and Tired

Today's been a tiring day. After work I came home, showered, cooked dinner with my friend, and then prepared two packages of tea to go out to two people. One of which happens to be the person who helped me out when my car got towed to their family's towing shop, many...

Aristotle said “we are what we habitually do”.  If something is important, you must do it every day.  If you say, “I will take some time next year and do that” – you will never do it.  If something is important and will be part of our legacy it needs to be done every day and become routine.”

“Don’t let your imagination be crushed by life as a whole. Don’t try to picture everything bad that could possibly happen. Stick with the situation at hand, and ask, “Why is this so unbearable? Why can’t I endure it?”

“Carpe Diem. Momento Mori.”  Seize the day. Remember we must die.
