In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Two Right Feet.”
What do I do to get my day started in the right foot? Nothing…absolutely nothing….for about 60 minutes or more. I know, I know. It’s lazy and boring but I have tried every other option and this is the only way that I can function. I have tried the getting up and jumping in the shower immediately.. didn’t work. I tried going to the gym immediately.. didn’t work. So, after almost 40 years of working different shifts and different hours, I have ME time or there won’t be any WORK time. I have gotten up as early as 3:00am to be at work at 6:00am.
I make my coffee the night before just like I am going to rush out the door in the morning. I pour a cup and maybe take 3 sips… that’s all. And if I don’t do the 3 sips, I feel like I can’t go on… I have my crackers and peanut butter… And do nothing.
The last time I overslept and didn’t get my hour of me time. I went back to bed and didn’t leave the house all day.
Call me lazy, boring, wasteful or whatever you want. If you want me to show up in life, give me a minute… or rather an hour.
So. for the sake of sounding modern and “hip”, I will call this my hour of meditation. I was “meditating” before meditating was cool.
