mind and body

I’m in one of those moods today. Not quite sure if it’s euphoria or delusion or excessive endorphin production, but after last night’s pep call I feel invigorated.

By “pep call” I mean that every Wednesday night I have a scheduled phone call with a unique friend and we discuss our ongoing projects. He is working on growing his internet business, and I’m working at my writing projects and we help each other along the bumpy, foggy road to executing our dreams. Last night’s call fired me up for some reason more than others.

My mind awoke fresher this morning and my vision of writing freedom seemed a little bit closer. Four hours a day, I tell myself, four hours a day. My god how good that sounds. I really enjoy these calls and would suggest, if it is possible and you are trying to achieve a tough goal or dream, you try to set one up for yourself. Not always easy to do as I think you need to click with the right person on the other end of the line for it to be helpful. I do hope he (my pep call contact) is being nudged along by me a little and finds the calls useful as well – even if sometimes all we do is have a mutual excuse session.

So anyhow, like I was saying, my mind seems to be in a pretty good space today. Now, if I could only say that of the shell which houses it.

My body is showing its age. Now this is not meant as a gripe session but only as an acknowledgement that my body is older than I would like and I sometimes forget it. It still functions adequately for most daily chores, but when I stress it now (like skiing and skating) – I’m afraid I have to pay the price. I went skating last night even though the aches and pains of skiing Monday were warning me not to try anything funny.

I did okay (no falling down or pulling anything that I know of), but though my mind is healthy my body hurts today. Actually walking to my desk this morning I had a pain down my back, a nerve twitching, trying to send signals of “please lie down now and don’t get up”, but I had to press on, get to my seat and create this post or you would have nothing to read this morning . . .

I am so good at deluding myself. And you are so kind to humor me for it.

I could ramble on for a few more paragraphs, but I think I’ll stop right now. Try not to make this a season 8 and 9 of the X-files.

Enough is enough.

I’ll be back tomorrow with more. And hey, it may even be interesting, but I don’t want to promise then disappoint.

Thanks for stopping by.
