A few days ago I decided I needed a new morning ritual. I
had gotten into the habit of waking up in front of Facebook. Then 3 hours later
I realized I was still on the computer and it was too hot to do anything
outside. So I decided to postpone turning on the computer until noon each day.
So this morning I randomly woke up at 7 AM. I purposely didn’t
turn on my computer. I went next door to feed my neighbor’s dog. She was very
happy to see me and had to run a few laps before she settled down enough to
Then I set the hose down to water a tree, and sat down and
scrubbed the rest of the gourds I got last Tues. I watered the garden. I pulled
up some sad tomatoes that never set fruit and got attacked by hornworms. I can
plant garlic in that tub now.
I wrote a long letter to a friend. I spent 30 minutes
reading my meditation book and thinking about what it said. I put out birdseed
for the quail and sparrows. I made bacon and eggs for breakfast.I moved some boxes that were blocking the
front door after I moved my bed yesterday. Then I spent the rest of the time
working on an embroidery project for my Etsy shop. I even went 30 minutes past
noon because I was so engrossed in it.
Still about 50 times I thought of something I needed to do
on Facebook or on line. For example, I was going to play my guitar, but I need
the computer to tune it, so I postponed that until later. It’s going to take a
while to break the Facebook habit.
First I’m going to do my blog post and then go on Facebook.
Now if I play Candy Crush I won’t feel guilty.
And I hear thunder, so I’m glad I got the outdoor stuff done
before it starts to rain.
