I’m grateful the past does not dictate the future. The Mindvalley Reunion in San Diego was a great experience all around; very glad for the teachers, classmates, the total attitude of humanity+. Also happy for LA friends and beautiful skies and city skylines and my healthy happy family. So strange that August is nearly over, I’m still surprised it’s already August; these are my common refrains and I wonder when/if they leave me. What do I look like when I’m through? I’m already pleased, satisfied, and very grateful for the journey, fast and slow as it is, as I am. And happy birthday dear Evadne, I’m so lucky to have you in my life and we’ve seen and shared so much good already and the best is yet to come.
I am a big fan of past-Alicson who squirreled away these different kinds of very bright high quality light bulbs; was concerned for a moment I wouldn’t find a bulb that wasn’t daylight and dimmable (haven’t wanted one for yearsss) yet here it is! ::happy and in good bright lightness::
Problems with Redbox: 30-minute lock-out for password fails (do people really bother to come back in 30 min?) Contact is discouraged outside live call/chat hours; chat doesn’t seem to care about anything.
The day is Easter-colored with cobalt blue sky; bright fresh green leaves; magenta azaleas and redbuds; white lily of the valleys, dogwood blossoms; tulips and bleeding hearts; chirping finches and flitting sparrows.
I play the email game and my email wins 95% of the time. I don’t think it’s a strategy/tactic/approach thing—I have those— I think it’s a life and heart thing and it’s not in my genes to revolve around email.
I’ll keep playing on occasion and see what life lessons I continue to learn out of the whole experience.
*update four hours later: Ouch. That was a painful blow. Email is winning harder now.
Ummm… You didn’t break it, it was only sprained.
What could he have said? She voiced exactly what I’ve wondered too many times.
