Good morning crickets. Welcome to day number two-hundred-ninety of Operation Achieve Anything. The last few days have turned ended up work out brilliantly. First, there was the fact that I not only got all caught up on any missed hours from my day job’s system outages, but I also managed to fit in a side job and get not just caught up but ahead of my work for this blog. Yesterday was payday, so I walked to the store to replenish my food, which also knocked out all of my Fitbit steps in one fell swoop. By the time I got home, all that I had left to do was to fit in four hours of my day job.
When I sat down to get to work, I got another notice that the company was all out of tasks and to try again tomorrow. Though it sucks that I now have more time to make up since the hours lost was due to an issue that was out of my hands, any effort to get caught up would be entirely optional. I also received another email informing me that I had more work available through the side job mentioned above. So I may just consider that second job as my financial replacement for the missing hours.
Who knows, my mind may change but either way, with the news of no work, I opted to just take a break and do a little day drinking, in an effort to get back on the graveyard schedule that I fell out of while spending quality time with my dying dog. I haven’t had a day where every waking hour wasn’t filled with work or other obligations since she’s passed, so I needed to reset my energy and headspace. I ended up crashing super early which allowed me to get back on my graveyard schedule last night.
As of right now, all I have to do is compete and publish this post and tweak and post my SNL review for the day, and I’m all done with my day. I’ll then be able to go to sleep and wake later in the day where I will probably review tomorrow’s SNL and possible start making up some of those missing hours depending on how much time I have until it’s TV time with the family. Either way, it should now be easy to stick with the schedule that frees up at least four hours a day because it allows me to plan all my tasks more efficiently. Then I can get back to cleaning this site so I can move on to the next step and actively start to promote it.
So, that’s how things have been now let’s get into today’s assignment where I was supposed to stop dwelling on the past. Though the book meant that you don’t have to hold on to what you once were like if you were a jerk in college, you don’t have to be a jerk now. I took it more to mean to stop harping on old issues since my identity is fluid enough as a human chameleon that I freely let old personality traits come and go as needed, but I can still get hung up on thinking of every single dumb work that I said during the most insignificant of conversation.
Though I see the fact that I replay these moments over and over again as a curse, I also see it as the main reason that I am such a huge fan of writing as a way to solve the mystery of me and the way that I’ve flounder throughout my life. After living on this planet for forty-two years with this curse, I’m grown so used to it that I couldn’t imagine a life without it, even if it leads to a lot of internalized pain.
I’m currently losing a lot of memories that I have about my last batch of friends since I no longer see them meaning I no longer continuously have these miserable reminders running around in my head to factor in potential old stories to bring up to keep my position as the group’s storyteller. I almost feel like I miss these old memories of moments as much as I miss my actual friends, so I don’t really see the benefits of being so quick to release every thought from the past. Plus, I always find it funny that the same people the deal out any sort of adage about not holding on to the past are the same people who love to remind us that those who don’t study history are doomed to repeat it, without even seeing a hint of irony.
Of well, that’s all that I’ve got from yesterday, so let’s get into the task for today where I’m now supposed to pretty much practice The Secret and start to be more active in visualizing how I see my ideal life and the let the Cosmos do the rest. I’ll go into why can’t stand this nonsense when I check in tomorrow with my next update. Until then, it’s now time for me to sign off as usual by saying, good day and good luck to you and all of your projects.
Talk to you soon.
