Peace at 7AM in Florida in the Summer

It’s been awhile since I’ve last written largely because I’ve been so busy. But I have to record this one passing thought. I woke up today, a Sunday, and walked the dog at just before 7AM. The sun was out, but not too hot yet. The birds were chirping, but no humans made any noise or could be seen. No one had yet begun mowing their yard or washing their cars. It was just the dog, the birds, the sun, and me.

I’ve tried meditation. I’ve tried deep relaxation. But honestly, right now, nothing I know of can beat the natural, organic peace of 7AM in Florida in the Summer.

Friday, about noon Eastern

So it’s Friday, and this has been an interesting week, to say the least. For a lot of reasons, I don’t want to get into it too much here, but it’s been a very long week. It’s really caused me to do a lot of thinking about things in general, and come to a few conclusions.

1. I need to focus more on the present and less on rushing into the future. Too much time spent thinking about “tomorrow” is generally just wasting “now.”

2. Having a todo list on paper is SO MUCH less stressful than having it in your head.

3. I am really genuinely excited for the wedding, and I really do consider myself lucky to find someone so fantastic who gets me, puts up me with, lets me care for her, and is such a perfect partner.

It’s rare for someone like me – someone who reads and researches almost hyperbolically, has compulsive tendencies, and is so methodical and detailed, to truly stop and enjoy the moment. That’s my new mission.
