๐ŸŒ My Day: I Woke Up, Alive ๐Ÿ’

QUOTES I’M ENJOYING THIS JULY:

โ€œBurnout is nature’s way of telling you, you’ve been going through the motions your soul has departed.โ€

– Sam Keen

“Itโ€™s only when we get kicked down that we see what we are made of. Itโ€™s easy to be positive when everything is going well, but the heart of all great endeavours is the ability to stagger back to our feet and keep moving forward, however grim it gets.”ย 

– Bear Grylls

Goings On:

Playing piano more, it’s easier than in the past with the free scrolling sheet music on Youtube, though even the slow is too fast it let me look at a few notes then pause and practice that. I’m working on Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven.

The garden, just got new flower seeds, but didn’t soak them yet… going to visit an aquaponic farm today and I am a bit behind in the aquaponic system… so kind of don’t want to start something new until I am more caught up with organizing what I already have.

I feel a bit dark and scattered, but I don’t know why. I guess trying to put on a cheery facade during the pandemic built up a lot of the darker feelings and they were waiting to be heard.

Doing well, but disorganized, want to deal with that, but I don’t have an action plan yet about what comes first and when.

Life Balance Planner Available Now (Free)

For the longest time I wanted a school style planner for adult life and I never found one that was right for me, not to organize my doctors appointments or write gratitude, but to plan my goals and organize my thoughts and projects. I finally made one after seeing another blogger go to the hospital with heart issues it made me more aware that getting better at self care will only continue to wait so long before my body will turn on me like an unfed feral cat… so I made this planner for myself, but it would be easy to adjust it by simply clicking what is there and retyping or even copy pasting images from the computer, if anyone is interested I can give a tutorial on adjusting it, but really it seems pretty user friendly, so I’ll wait to see if there is any interest and if there is I’ll try to cover that.

A NOTE ABOUT EMOJITHUSIASM:

For me, the emojis pay homage to our different, but equal psychological “lens” of the world and celebrate my respect to diversity…

I’ve was a huge fan of symbology before emojis even existed. 1. They tie the left and right brain together for me, but 2. they are different for everyone’s systems, I actually love that, so what looks beautiful to me, may not work or may be ugly on your system. It sounds like a flaw in article or web design, but to me it’s a reminder of how much our soul’s lens color our world (a lot, but not completely).

I love looking at my blog from my phone, tablet and computer and seeing it differently.

I prefer the emojis to not be broken, but when they are, it reminds me of ancient sutras with certain words that are lost to time, rendered incomprehensible by language shifts.

I find it beautiful, freeing and healing to so easily add some color and beauty to the black and white words (which have beauty of their own). I use emojipedia.org to access emojis since I write from a computer.

WHAT’S NEXT?

I don’t really know, I’m mixed up about being either a serious writer, gardener, garden blogger, or just a casual blogger, the question is not if I should write or garden, but how much to do either and how much to mix them.

Take an imaginary heart with you, they’re for you reader!
