Well, this thing that I’ve been fighting off is moving along. Started out with a sore throat and now some more congestion and general fatigue. I’m so glad I only have one more night to work. Especially since last night was all kind of CRAZY busy. Wow, 4 CERT calls, non-stop busy. I sat down once to enter some computer data and eat my string cheese. When I left I was so hungry I wolfed down my cashews in the car!
Since I was so exhausted I just slept so soundly. I don’t think I even got up once.
I REALLY hope tonight is a bit better.
Quesadillas for dinner — simple and good. It started freezing raining after dinner and is still going. I’ll have to leave a bit earlier tonight to make sure the roads are okay.
Meditations from the Mat (Day 23)…
~~the second yama is satya and it concerns TRUTH
~~we must work hard to speak the truth and live the truth
~~little by litter we notice, then drop, our old habits of embellishment, obfuscation, minimization, self-aggrandizement, omission, rationalization and exaggeration
~~the process calls on all of our powers of self-control
~~as the layers of falsehood fall away, an intimacy develops with our own truth
Things making me happy today: sleeping incredibly soundly, being able to vent about work to Kimm, only working two days in a row, the sound of rain falling
