My inner thighs really hurt…… exercising is a bitch.
(I literally googled, “thigh exercise gym machine brown woman” … her emotion sold me along with the bottom caption that I screened shot right on the website. Which, clicking on that website didn’t make me feel better about being sore….For NOTHING! Haha… oh man.)
…. I’ve been in love with poetry lately; it’s so beautiful.
The short but deep ones are what get me. Who would’ve thought that 10 words can have so much meaning and depth.
(I posted this on my stories on @ELLERALI today. I love her poems and I look forward to reading them each day. It’s crazy how much they make me feel.)
That’s what I need to do. Learn how to keep things short but powerful → Essentialism.
I read a post on Medium today called “Why keeping a daily journal could change your life” by Benjamin P. Hardy. This is why I’m here right now.
I have a hard time prioritizing. I feel everything is important, yet I do so much but feel like I’m never done → Essentialism.
(I keep phrasing Essentialism because in “Why keeping a daily journal could change your life,” the author introduces a book called Essentialism. The link took me to Amazon where I was able to listen to an audio sample of the book.)
I’m in a constant learning phase; always reading, gathering more info that leads me to more things. I love it, but it’s distracting. Again I lose focus and then I get tired.
It’s noon and I haven’t even looked at my ELLERALI calendar today…. I just yawned.
How many TO DO lists have I made?? Waaaay too many.
I NEED A BIG FINISH. What is it…
2 Month Calendar of ELLERALI.
GO! FINISH! NOW!
But first… coffee.
It’s 8:34 PM and I’m exhausted. And my inner thighs still really hurt.
My goals today were:
Doesn’t seem like I did a lot at all…..
As embarrassing as it is to see my writing, as well as see my list, it’ll help me.
- Work on my penmanship if i’m going to be posting my TO DO lists.
- Prioritize my day more efficiently.
Now there are also things I did today that were not on my checklist. For example, laundry, cook dinner, and had a really productive chat with my good friend Gilbert. I should write those things down too to give myself credit.
But what I took most from today was, starting to blog again.
Most of the day I spent researching and overthinking of how to write a relaunch into my blog; how formal it should be, what I wanted to portray to my audience. I thought so much into it, I started freaking out and then got so exhausted from the idea of it. I called my friend Gilbert and he helped me put things into perspective.
“Writing is like going to the gym, no one says they regret it after”
So I just decided to write, to type up what I wrote this morning, and then to continue on my reflection tonight. Raw, real and now. Otherwise, I’d probably would not have posted this today and probably still be sitting on that dining table thinking of the best way to write a blog post.
I’m not aiming for perfection now, I’m just aiming to do it.
I don’t regret going to the gym yesterday even though I am sore. I did skip today to finish this task, but I don’t regret that either, because hello, I’m backkkk!
