I’m linking up with Lecy today from https://asimplergrace.blogspot.com/ for a coffee date post.
If you and I met for coffee I’d suggest a restaurant which has so many different teas and coffees to choose from and serves breakfast all day.
I’d ask how you are and tell you that I’m busy with work and even though I’ve been here for over 12 years I’m still learning new things. Today was a great example and the time has flown as I’m making notes of a new process I’ve learnt which will save me time in the future.
I’d tell you that I’m loving the meditation course I signed up for. Going again tonight and looking forward to learning new ways to calm my mind. This morning I realized that I’m putting into practice my resolve to be more mindful. I had a terrible nights sleep and was a bit cranky this morning. Felt really meh about silly random things and then forced myself to take a step back. I reminded myself I was in a bad mood because of lack of sleep and to put it into perspective. It doesn’t mean this morning was going to be a bad one. Or the day. Or the week. Yes, I was cranky but yes, I felt better after having a cup of tea at my desk and reading quietly for a few minutes before the day started.
I’m also trying to overthink less. I made a comment to a friend this morning about somebody we know. Immediately felt bad and thought I should send an explanatory e-mail about why I felt like that. Again took a step back. If someone gets off on bragging and treats it like a national sport I am allowed to be unimpressed and keep my distance. Why am I feeling like I need to justify my reactions to inappropriate behavior? The days of me justifying how I feel and finding a list of explanations are time consuming and unnecessary.
If we had coffee, I’d tell you that I am reading a book on eating for your blood type and it is SO fascinating. For years I’ve been eating foods on the ‘avoid list’ and telling myself they are good for me. I’m making notes as I go along and this week I changed hubby and I’s grocery list to only include foods that were on the suggested lists. Early days (started Monday and today is Wednesday) but we’ll see.
As we finish our drinks and breakfast, we’d agree to meet again soon. Next time you choose the place.
