Day 202 through Day 205

This week has been interesting. I don't have day-by-day recollections, as I have not been for a few days. I do have running logs to keep track of time though. On the 12th, Monday that is, I ran 1.04 miles in 9 minutes 14 seconds, likely as a warmup. Then I ran 3 miles...

Day 198 – Day 200

Day 198 – Day 200

I am not fairly certain that I can remember Thursday and Friday. Today it is Saturday. Based on my MapMyRun statistics, it would appear that I ran 4 miles on Thursday. That is, I ran a mile in 7 minutes 12 seconds, and hen I ran 3 miles in 23 minutes 51 seconds (at a...

Day 197 – Airport Drive

Day 197 – Airport Drive

In the morning I woke up at 6:45 AM from sleeping on my back, simply by rising up. I told my guest, that I had offered to drive to the airport forty five to fifty minutes away, that I would be ready at 7 AM. Then I got dressed, got my phone, and was ready to head out...

Day 196 – Hard to Remember

Day 196 – Hard to Remember

Yesterday happens to be a bit hard to remember, because I'm also trying to remember the previous night to Day 196. I accidentally wrote about the night of day 194, just now, in fact I wrote two paragraphs, before having the idea to go back and check to see if I had...

Day 195 – A Great Day

Day 195 – A Great Day

Today I woke up at around 10:30 AM and messaged my friend in the morning, I also meditated for 21 minutes while listening to Kiran Bedi's interfaith song which is 20 minutes and 38 seconds. I did not need a timer a result. I have the song and repeat, and after it goes...

Day 194 – About to Meditate

Day 194 – About to Meditate

Now that I've sat down to write what I've been up to today, I had a hard time remembering. Upon some further time, I remember. I wrote a letter to my roommate, which ended up being two pages, one physical one that was double-sided. I had to lower the margins to narrow...

Day 178 – Day 191 – A Long Hiatus

Day 178 – Day 191 – A Long Hiatus

Looking back through the calendar I can't believe I have not written in two weeks. The idea itself, of having let 336 hours meld into one written memory seems absurd to me. What could have been so important that I wouldn't have had time to write? Maybe this was a...

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.
