I slept long and hard, and am determined that today is the last day I will feel like crap. I am having a day of getting rid of things, including bad habits.
I awoke at 8.47AM, made tea, lit incense, and sat down to read my book whilst listening to this:
I then sat down to write out today’s To Do List, and wrote my gratitude list.
I’m not sure where today went, but it is 10.50AM before I get round to getting anything done.
10.50AM – GRATITUDE EXERCISE
The book I’m reading has a gratitude exercise which involves writing ten things I desire and being grateful for them.
I’m going to do that now before moving on with my day.
I feel really alive and uplifted after doing that, as though nothing could possibly stop me. I am looking forward to what’s left of today more than ever.
11.20AM – FINISH CLEANING OUT BEDROOM.
I finish the draws and pack up the pile of clothing that I got ready to get rid of yesterday.
I also research how much money from charity shops actually goes to charity, because it would be good to know that my donations actually make a difference somehow.
11.59AM – GET READY TO GO OUT
When I’m sure that I’ve gotten rid of as much crap as I can from my bedroom, I shower, shave, brush teeth, get dressed and pack a bag so that I can go into town and get the things I need.
12.36PM – LEAVE FOR TOWN
I head to town, buy my brother a card and a TicketMaster gift card for his birthday, then buy myself eggs, sponges, washing up liquid, and shower gel, and then some lunch.
After that, I head home again.
2PM – HOME, LUNCH, NAP
I get home, eat lunch and watch TV, then turn around and head back out to go and take my brother’s birthday present and pick up laundry from yesterday.
Then I get back and Sam calls, so I talk to her before taking a nap for an hour.
4.57PM – UP, UPDATE JOURNAL
I get up, stretch off, and spend a few minutes just waking up whilst my computer loads, then it’s time for action.
5.19PM – WORK ON NEW MEDIUM ARTICLE
I started this on my phone earlier, so now it’s time to get writing it. I’m going to give myself until 6.30PM to do this. Here goes.
I actually get the whole thing finished and done, adding 939 words to my total, and meaning I can cross another goal off my weekly list.
I get it scheduled on social media, then call that a day.
6.42PM – GET DJ SET READY
I don’t really want to do this tonight, but it’s helpful to Sam, so let’s get to it.
That was actually simple and straight forward. Now I’ve got about two hours before I have to sit down and think about DJ’ing all night. I’m going to spend that time wisely working on decluttering the kitchen.
7.09PM – DECLUTTER KITCHEN (OR AT LEAST START IT)
I actually did a pretty good job here, most of my drawers are done and decluttered and also fully cleaned. I washed dishes, got rid of a bunch of stuff, and feel better already.
I just have one more cupboard to do and the top of my kitchen units, then that’s another room done.
9.02PM – ONLINE DJ SET
This was long and dull tonight and I hated it. I’m thinking of quitting -or at least taking a break- for a while.
I stayed for some of Sam’s set, then went to bed around 1PM and fell asleep about 2AM.
REFLECTIONS ON TODAY:
Feelings of low mood this evening, but they can easily be moved past. There was nothing traumatic about today, it was another good day over all, in which I got everything done that I wanted to get done, and more. It’s just that I’m starting to feel the effects of not physically taking care of myself as best as I can.
I will try harder tomorrow.
Tomorrow is another day.
