I don't like how I have been spending my time lately. Too much facebook, too many Wheel of Fortune games on my phone, too many crossword puzzles.
I have a stack of books beside my bed that I want to read and mindless apps kept luring me, sucking me in.
And don't get me started on mindless TV.
So last Monday, at my prayer group, I asked for patience and strength to make some changes.
On Tuesday I deleted all the game apps from my phone. Step One. (Always the hardest).
On Wednesday I sorted out the books beside my bed and found one I really really wanted to get into.
Yesterday, I started to read a book about inner development called Christ Consciousness, and spent time out in the sun sweeping off the porch, sorting clothes, and shopping for a few odds and ends.
It was a good start.
I got all my work finished for the contract I had, and put it to bed (this meant I could invoice for the work - yay!).
I started a new journal with the following words:
It is auspicious that there are nine words.
The nine hierarchies of the Spiritual World.
The nine worlds in Lord of the Rings.
Nine is an auspicious number.
I have done a little of everything on the list this week except get to the piano.
After swimming I will pull out my Grade Nine Conservatory book, or my Bach Inventions.
I have a feeling that today is going to be a good day.
And don't think I have totally lost my senses - I did watch Survivor on Wednesday night, and Shades of Blue last night. Because?
Because that's how I roll.
