in the process of deciding what it is I have to do. This is because I have a choice in the matter. If say, you don’t have a choice in the matter, you don’t have to make a decision. And if you don’t have to make a decision, you don’t get stressed.
A case in point: This morning I had an hour between 10 and 11 a.m. in which I could act upon several options. I could study for my Woofer tests, write this journal entry, work on my Gift of a Good Ride proposal, or take Tinni for a walk. All were equally important. Choices. That’s the killer. It’s the toilet paper analogy. If we had just one choice when I went to the supermarket, I would be less stressed.
I decided to write this entry (first in my journal) because I have yoga class this afternoon. This is what this is for. I could write it during the time between strength training and yoga class, but I felt like sitting down for a bit. I’d have to stand if I were to work on my proposal since I type at my standing desk. I guess I’m feeling lazy.
I’m losing steam as I’m writing this because I doubt anyone is going to hang with this dispatch this far. The subject matter is like my dental history, of interest to me but not of interest to anyone else. Plus, I don’t think that I did a good job of defining the term underwhelmed. In writing, audience is key. Grab them early on, by the balls or ovaries, and hang on tight. Do not hesitate or all will be lost. Alas, my reaction time wasn’t quick enough. Geez, I wonder what Pete is going to come up with in the way of an accompanying photo.
