Ok so you all will probably be thinking “duh,” but I need to say this “out loud.”
I feel great about how today went. No I did not get a job, nor laid.
But I kept my word. In a self help course I did in 2000, the definition of integrity is honoring my word, and doing everything I can to keep it. And if I realize I won’t be able to do that, communicate that to whoever is involved.
There were many things that I wanted to do:
-I prayed before bed
-I stretched my hamstrings and my arms (I’m stiff, can’t come close to touching my toes while straight legged. And also, I have limited strength in my left hand, grabbing things with just my fingers is weaker. I have limited typing range. Stretching helps. Doctors haven’t helped.)
-I said my affirmations (Yes, I’m one of those. I often have a lot of negative stuff bouncing around in my head. Especially now that I’m unemployed. So I’ve found going out of my way to say positive affirmations keeps me positive.)
-I meditated twice. (I recently reblog get The Benefits of Guided Meditations which has links to some YouTube guided meditation videos. They do the job.)
-I visualized (I find visualizing my goals already mine puts me in a good mindset.)
-Looked for a job today with very few distractions. Applied to some good jobs, followed up on interviews, networked.
-Ate and hung out with a friend on the cheap. I’ve been splurging so good to reel it in.
-With that friend had a great conversation about what’s going on in each other’s lives
-Got him on board with an idea for a talking heads comedy video blog (vlog)
I think I’ll do it again tomorrow!
