Exercise!: I have so much energy! I rode 9 miles to and from work today. Jogged around the neighborhood for 30 minutes or so. Rode my bike, softly, for another 30 minutes....which leads me to
Gratitude...Over the weekend as I was walking home from a laundry run I plucked some amazing smaller purple grapes, not sure what variety. They were from somebody's vine hanging over their wire fence. They are so good! As I ate them I silently told myself to come back and ask them if I could harvest some.
And....I did tonight...spontaneously...took the extra shirt I was wearing and piled them up on it, wrapped it up and flew home on my bike.
I feel like a really young child in how excited and proud of myself I am
My boyfriend and I also harvested a box full of navel oranges last night, in a parking lot. Two beautiful thriving orange trees producing yummy juicey fruit...which I ate today....yum!
I'm grateful that I'm following through in promises to myself.
My appetite/appreciation is very big lately and, yet, its modest too...I love they're together like that; the large appreciation and the modesty.
Feelings: overall, very grateful. My perspective is bright and productive. At work, I talked to the manager about a few of my concerns, and provided ideas and suggestions...which is usually something out of my comfort zone...but today, I just did it.
So with that in consideration, my feelings are clear, and the ability to perceive is clear and strong-willed...which also brings me to the post made about the connection of glucose and willpower! Yes!
Growth: Talking, expressing my viewpoint, drinking enough water, following through on earlier self-promises.
Gratitude: I'm grateful I feel grateful, and I'm allowing it to come through and flow through, I'm grateful my defenses are recognizable and transcended by choice, and I am fearlessly making the connections to be expanding on being grateful without apologizing in the empathy in that I understand what it feels like to feel disillusioned...or ungrateful. So I am grateful I'm becoming stronger to be grateful...self conscious, a little awkward, but I am grateful I recognize these aspects, too, as parts of climbing the ladder of persistent, knee-jerk, consistent, reliable, perceiving the world in love, and I am grateful
Goals: Well, my fridge is full of local grapes and oranges! One of my earlier goals is currently within honor.
Another goal? Well, I'm going to start in saying; try to run at least 3x a week. Annnnd, to receive the "yes" for the country cottage I'm applying for tommorrow.....fingers crossed and flowers from the garden on my porch, tied together, crossed!
