Coming home from very lonely places, all of us go a little mad; whether from great personal success, or just an all-night drive, we are the sole survivors of a world no one else has ever seen.

This’ll be another quickie post. I’m typing this while the edited vid for YT is in the process of saving in the background. It’s been a very busy week both in terms of work and home staff but overall, I can’t complain.
So for the past week I would say that overall I made some progress in a couple of tasks that have been a problem area. I resolved to improve upon this by changing the milestone to better reflect my current work schedule.
In a nutshell, I dialed it down just a bit. For meditation and exercise weekly goals, the strategy to get the ball rolling again was to make it impossible to fail by making the minimum milestone very achievable. In doing so, I can rebuild the momentum I had before.
On the flip side, I did not draw or write. These are activities I do during the evenings on weekdays. After I get home from work and take care of some home stuff, I can shift my attention to these creative pursuits. However, this past week, I encountered a couple of busy days at work which can mentally drain me to the point of physical exhaustion and a couple of nights where my commute home took longer than usual due to delays in mass transit.
So here are the results:
What I did:
Allowed myself for leisure time
Wrote a blog post
What I didn’t get to do:
Draw (work on my grid series)
Write in my journal
Tomorrow when I am more lucid I’ll try to figure out what I can do to “create” more time for all of these activities.
For now, I need to upload the vid on YT, post this on the blog, and call it a day. I need some rest.
Have an amazing week ahead.
