nipping at my heels

11 Sep

Okay, so I guess posting everyday didn’t work out. I feel like I would just end up making crap posts to fill in space, and that’s not entertaining. Plus, I’ve been too worried about school this week to make sure I posted every day.

As I predicted, failure on the NaBloPoMo thing.

Also, I’m having some issues with my meditation practice as well. I’ve been keeping up with it and doing it almost every day. But the last couple of days have been brutal. I can’t concentrate on my meditation at all. I end up just sitting there thinking about all the crap I’d been thinking about all day long.

I think I’m going to write this off to “last week sucked” and try to start fresh today.

So “return” is the theme for NaBloPoMo September posting. This could mean all kinds of things. I feel that it’s appropriate for this particular time in my life because I feel like I’m returning to my roots and figuring out what’s really important to me. These are the things I’ve been thinking about lately.

Beauty has always been important to me. I enjoy finding beauty in everyday life. Here’s something that I think shows this simple kind of beauty.  It’s tilt shift time-lapse photography. It’s footage of real life, tweaked to look a little unreal. Enjoy.

So, I’m going to try to post something every day for the month of September for NaBloPoMo.  I have attempted in the past and have failed, as is indicative of my ability to commit to a routine. I guess I need to do a behavioral intervention on myself.

Also, I downloaded a nifty app for my iPod that is a meditation timer with fancy bells and a log of all the time that you meditate with charts and graphs and such. This might seem a little counterintuitive, since mediation isn’t supposed to be about reaching any particular goal. But, because I can also be a perfectionist I think it might keep me motivated to meditate every day. I wouldn’t want an unsightly gap in my graphs, now would I?

…is the March theme for NaBloPoMo.  Oh man, I can do a lot with that.  I’m gonna give it a go again, seeing as how my February posting was pretty spotty.

okay, i lied

So, I haven’t lived up the NaBloPoMo rules and I’ve skipped a few days of blogging.  I guess I’ll have to try again next month.  But, I’ve missed a couple days for a good reason: because I have a life and I’ve been doing things with people. Yay.

I’m also slacking on the meditation everyday thing.  My resolve is not quite as strong as it used to be when I was a younger person.  I used to have steel will.  I guess I’ll just have to try to do better, and try not to be too hard on myself…because that’s not really the point anyway.

In other news:

I thought this article was interesting.  Apparently women can tell the difference in the smell of sweat from a man that is aroused and a man that isn’t aroused.  Makes sense.  I think body odor is a huge part of attraction and chemistry and such.

Anyway, I’ll be back on the ball starting……now.  Right now.  I promise.

So, I’m doing NaBloPoMo for January.  If I like it, I’ll do it again next month.

Anyway, the theme for this month is “best.”  But, I don’t necessarily have to follow it, so I don’t know if I will.

Wow, I’m indecisive.
