Today’s reluctant admittance: I probably need to be doing more to become a productive “morning person” if I’m going to give honest pursuit to my future/projected adulthood goals. Not that any of them particularly require my full attention early in the A.M. at this point, but an increasingly full schedule both personally and professionally can really only be half-managed if you sleep through the morning, late-morning, and sometimes even the early afternoon. Womp womp.
Today’s needling anxiety: I’m glad to be endlessly busy and working hard my first few weeks full-time on the job…but that is called a “career,” and when the downswing of activity hits I can’t continue to tell myself that I have earned total relaxation. I thoroughly enjoy my deadline-free hours…but I fear that if I don’t push myself out of my comfort zone and challenge my proclivity to leisure-lounge, I’ll never see progress in my loftier, more long-term ambitions.
Today’s gratitude: a well-woven, tailored, true-fitting pair of slacks. Not all gratitudes must be profound. Hell, maybe there even is a little profundity to these threads. I don’t think I’ve ever owned a pair of chinos that felt this good before. Can pants be profound? I don’t know; I’m just out here asking the real questions in life.
