In a moment I will be closing my browser and will be leaving it off, until I have finished my major reading task of the day. Ditto on the e-mail.
I will be re-engaging the difficult book I began on Saturday. I really need to get through it today and it could take all day.
When I need a break, and that may be often, I will take a 5 to 10 minute break. I may even set a timer, and will get some exercise by attending to some need for order in this house. (This house seriously needs order.) I’ll do what I can in 5-10 minutes and then re-engage.
If by 1:00 I’m sick of the house I’ll run an errand that needs to be run and settle in at a coffee shop to finish the task.
By 4:30 I’ll head to a hair appointment. I think I’ll check the e-mail/blog around then.
I will be in bed by 9 to accommodate the very early morning.
(Thank you all for being so encouraging and so confident in me. And I have to say that I find it funny that you think I am so diligent and disciplined. I am only doing what I have to do. Honest. If I could skim this book… I probably would. But I love your enthusiasm! I do. You’re the best.)
may I breathe deeply,
and honor the intentions
I have made this day.
