The Halloween headdress is an observation of my impulse spending. I had to buy Halloween candy for work, so I went to the drug store, and viola, they had minimal Halloween costumes for buy one get one 50% off. How could I resist?
Never mind that I’d have saved money by not buying it. Nevermind that I wore it (and the boa) for a total of five minutes–MAX–while the kids came trick-or-treating at work.
Never mind. It was BOGO 50% off !
Plus it lights up and has ribbons and stuff.
I’m not sure how Intuition came into my book collection. Perhaps it was a Barnes & Noble discount, perhaps it was a gift.
I try to read 10-15 minutes every morning–to learn new things, personal growth type things.
I used to enjoy reading metaphysical stuff. I started it and immediately felt resistance to reading it. But I trudged on, wanting to read every book I have before getting new ones.
Normally, when I dislike a book, I can say exactly why: the writing, the plot, the themes that narcissistic men who stalk women is sexy (ahem, Fifty Shades), but this one I can’t say. Perhaps if my inner guide were awakened, I could better pin-point it.
I managed to skim through it, really trying to read parts of it but finding myself skipping ahead, time and time again.
So. Yeah. Didn’t like it.
But it served a purpose: it reminded me that I had fallen into “playing” at meditation. I set aside time every morning, set the timer, and sat. The dog’s butt was a distraction (my dog’s butt speaks in “Scratch Me NOWNOWNOWNOW!”) , the constant to-do list in my head a constant distraction.
I was doing but not really doing, therefore playing at it.
So I’m a bit more focused now. That’s a good thing,
47 things filed. Some trash, others organized in sub-folders, such as Medical (hanging folder), smaller folders: Lab Work, EOBs, etc.
UPPING MY GAME:
Going into my fourth month (wow!), I realized that it’s time to up my game again. So I’ve done two things:
- Committed to completely clearing out one shelf, one drawer, one something every week.
- Started a new challenge to run in tangent with this one: Getting Healthy.
This week, I’ve managed to clear out my entire shoe-portion of my closet. So yay. All of my shoes, with the exception of one, are paired. I’ve managed to lose one of the shoes that I wear most often and have determined that it has NOT been brought outside by the dog, although whether it’s been digested is still a mystery.
Not a bad way to end 2015, quite frankly.
