Today I spent my thirty minutes of morning meditation concentrating on getting my massive payroll done. I imagined, in painful detail, doing the payroll. What a way to start the morning. LOL I did relatively well, all things considered (with a lot of help from co-workers). I stopped taking calls from customers at 10am when it became clear if I kept taking the calls I’d get nothing else done.
I managed to finish the payroll and get out of the office by a quarter after six. Got home and got with one of my beta readers to go over edits in the book. I think now I’m going to chill and go to bed. I have to get up bright and early for another day at the office. Then Thursday I’m going to spend my morning helping out with cleaning over at the new building. I want to at least feel useful by helping out there. But I am reserving the afternoon to get back to DPM and start hitting the editing hard and heavy. Dictation makes for some hysterical errors. Belial is now THE LAILE (so you all know). LOL I think Shaelyn and I (and all the other betas and editors) have found a new inside joke. Let’s just hope He knows we say it with reverence. 😉
So all in all, I’d say today was another productive meditation. One of the things I’m noticing is that I have already fallen into a comfortable place meditating both in the morning and at night. I’ve been reserving my nights more for ascension and communication practice, while my morning meditations are always intent driven based on what I need to get done that day. I think once the thirty days are up, I might keep doing it, though I might drop the time down to 15 minutes just to see if they’re still as effective cut in half, and use the other fifteen minutes for yoga. So looks like I’ve incorporated more daily work, but it’s been so helpful in keeping me focused that I think it’s worth the extra time and continuation of the practice.
What practices (that were supposed to be temporary) have you ended up keeping as part of your daily routine just because you found it so helpful?
