Allowing Myself

…to feel, to love, to be.

Sundays Are For (Week 27)

 

 

 

Today was an up & down, moon void-of-course type of day.

We slept in late because we were out late – our friends had a big house-warming party last night. Once up, we decided to drive down to the marina to walk Carter. It’s been cold & gray, like June gloom in July. I’ll take it though. I don’t know why, but I am pining for fall and the holidays, so being able to wear jeans and a scarf this afternoon made me extra happy.

We walked the marina and a little shopping center. Brought Carter down onto this dock and saw this gorgeous bird, though I don’t know what he is. He was a brave one though, letting me getting super close to snap a photo of him.

On the way home, we went to Jamba Juice, and then I spent an hour doing yoga. Loving it so much.

We watched Battlestar Galactica, ate lunch, took showers and decided to head out for lattes. Ended up at my fav place, but Carter didn’t feel well, and his continuous coughing up fluid made it extremely annoying to sit at the coffee shop. So with coffees to go and a quick stop by Trader Joe’s, we were on our way back home.

The dinner plan was grilled carne asada, but because this day has been all about foiled plans, the gas grill wasn’t working. Dinner turn out fine, but not as amazing as I’d hoped.

H started his work vacation. It’s been a nice weekend, having him home. He’ll be around all week, which frees me up to go running alone and put some good time in at the office. Hope your weekend was enjoyable too xo

Keep On Trusting

Today started out well enough. I took a long walk with the doggie, got ready for work, and popped over to therapy. The session went well, circling the topic of using the GTD process to keep on top of the tasks piling up.

For instance, “send out e-vites for three different events” felt like the most urgent task(s), the ones I wanted to panic about. But, I couldn’t move forward on these “next actions” until I received the proofed HTML files back from another department and pulled a few mailing lists (two of which I couldn’t do myself). So while these tasks felt almost desperate, I couldn’t actually do anything about them…yet.

Then the internet went down. Oy vey. Without the internet there is very little work I can do.

So, I didn’t. I wrote and read some, had lunch and waited around for my 3pm meeting. Having an iPhone helps – I checked email and responded to things as I could. Then I made my way to my meeting (at a mansion in Brentwood aka soooooo Hollywood) and drove back home.

And for some reason today, all of this was perfectly OK. I wasn’t frustrated that I couldn’t do work, wasn’t panicking about the urgent tasks and didn’t feel the need to nap, cry, hide or yell. I was 100% cool with it all.

It was an easy day to accept things as they are. I understand this is not always the case (revisit my almost month of blues here). It started from a good frame of mind but I felt my confidence high, believed in trusting, and reassured myself things work out.

When I realized the moon would go void of course at 2:40pm I tested a theory. I thought once the moon changed the internet would come back on, the files would be emailed and I would bat out all of that work in less than an hour. Of course, launching event promotion may not be the best task for moon VOC but I’ve found it’s a super productive time for me to finish up tasks.

Crazily enough, I was right. Moon VOC, trusting in my abilities and believing things will work out.

Perfection.
