Random stuff, reflections on the meaning of life and death, humour, self-deprecation, a bit of bad poetry.

Hey, I have one follower! I don’t know why that makes me happy but it does. I enjoy sharing my thoughts and observations, particularly when it stimulates participation. I read Leo Babauta’s blog entry on Why You Should Write Daily and decided that a few days a week is better than nothing. Here is the link.
The one thing I do not write down is to-do lists. But that doesn’t stop me from making endless mental ones which is exactly what I did this past week while I was off work.  Taking stock today, I can partially cross off two items. So what did I accomplish during my time off apart from fretting over what wasn’t getting done? Well, I took Sami for a decent walk at least once a day if not more (I’m not the only one who got pudgy over the winter months).  And I laced up my running shoes four times last week, hauling my spandex capris up and over this burgeoning muffin top of mine as I ran/walked/held on to the treadmill for dear life, panting to a new workout mix on my iPod. I also rediscovered the pleasant and calming ritual of making loose tea and shared some new blends (including orange-chocolate and chai) with friends.

Do you see a pattern here? Not quite the balanced lifestyle yet, but getting there. The problem with stay-at-home vacations is the tendency to feel as though we have to constantly be doing something or at least checking something off that infernal list. As a rule, I don’t like to travel with an itinerary so why should living be any different? Ha!

In any case, it will have to do for now and saving the world will have to wait. As Leo Babauta reiterates in his blog, the key is to make small changes, stick with them long enough to make them habits and forgive the lapses.

Do you make lists? If so, do they work for you? Or do you have a different strategy? Feel free to share, lonely follower. 🙂

    I hope it didn't sound as though I was fishing for followers. At this rate, I'll have to keep editing my entry where it says \”one follower\”.
