Today was an awesome day! My Mom and I spent most of the day at a religious seminar, reconnecting with friends, and enjoying some great panel talks, speakers, music, and round tables. It was wonderful.
When we got home, the family all joined up at Cracker Barrel for a nice dinner. Now we are all home taking care of full stomachs and just enjoying one another’s company. It’ll be a night of watching a movie on Netflix and then heading to bed.
I hope everyone is having a terrific day! For those of you who celebrate–Happy Cinco de Mayo!! Please be safe out there and take a Lyft, Uber, or Taxi to and from wherever you are headed.
Until next time…
I’ve got a few things to cover today. The first is to offer my thanks for all the new followers this week. Thank you so much for following Daily Ramblings. I really appreciate it. The next thing I want to cover is my new character trait I’ll be adding in February. February is the month I pursue the character trait of detachment. So far, I have the following character traits on my list of pursuit each month: discrimination, tolerance, forgiveness, and contentment. This has been an interesting journey.
I have also been monitoring the habits I’ve been establishing for the last year. My daily journaling and blogging are finally wired in. I literally cannot go a day without getting these done. It is interesting when you think about how our brains work. Initially, the brain resists the addition of a new task or habit. Then it begins to tolerate the habit. Finally, it expects the habit to be accomplished. This is the one surprise I attained over the last year. I have always been looking for some form of a trigger or sign that I have truly mastered a new habit. My realization over the last week was proof to me that these habits are ingrained. Now, I can begin looking at other habits.
We’ve got snow again last night and it is clean, crisp, and white. I love the Winter season. It is nice to feel the cold when you walk outside to shovel the driveway and sweep off the walkways. It is nice to feel the temperature difference when you come back in and pour yourself a nice cup of coffee. I finished the rough draft of my book and will begin the rewriting process on Monday. I have been contemplating the writing process or just the process of creation in general, and writing a book is no different from painting, sculpture or any other type of art form. You always start out rough and slowly transform the creation into a final product. I am glad I began this project last year and stuck with it.
I hope all of you have a terrific Sunday!
Until next time…
Since my last thank you posting, Daily Ramblings has added 23 readers to its audience. My heartfelt thanks to all of you who have begun following my blog!!
I hope each of you is getting something from my work. If you would like to see anything different, any additional content, etc., feel free to comment on one of my postings and I’ll take it into consideration. For those of you who are new, here is my weekly schedule:
Ted Talk Tuesday
I don’t do a heck of lot on Sunday, other than what I want to do. This is my one day per week that I literally “do nothing”, hence the nickname I’ve given it – “Do Nothing Day”.
My Do Nothing Day today consisted of reading Aristotle, some game time with my buddy playing Starcraft II, and listening to music on Spotify.
Thanks again, everybody! I really appreciate the follows and the comments this week. See ya tomorrow.
Until next time…
