The first time I did this challenge day 7 was a revelation for me. It was the day that I came to realize that I was trying to learn what it was that separated the people who fight life and lose from the people who just get it.
Today was not quite as reveloutionary. I didn’t do as well as I ‘d hoped with food or with getting work done. I was really successful until 2 o’clock and then my willpower just died.
It doesn’t help that the book that I started on Sunday (the one by Herman Hess) is mind blowing and I just want to read it all the time.
It has gotten much easier to read. I think my focus level is way up from Sunday. But, it is midnight and I am just writing my journal now even though I got basically not work done since 2 pm.
I did go to a book study, which I had to selfcontrol myself into going to, and I did make some homemade bread, which feels quite relaxing and creative, so it wasn’t a complete loss of an afternoon.
But, I was dissapointed becasue I did make the promise to myself to start going harder.
These next few weeks are going to be hard exercise of the brain. This is where I start creating new pathaways. And, just like starting a new work out, it isn’t going to be easy and I am just going to have to accept that.
Tomorrow I am doing 6 hours of writing whether I like it or not. Plus I am going skiing at 330, so it has to be done in the morning. (I might not go skiing if everything is pure ice – the weather is crazy right now).
