Well, I’ve learned more isn’t always really more. I used to try to do a lot in a day and felt good about that. Now, I try to do the few important things (be with family, be present). It is really hard to not be doing stuff for me. But, it has been so helpful to be present and let things that don’t really need to be done go.
It’s been a while since I’ve been here. My hero’s – hard to say. I really admired my dad for being steady and balanced in life. That really inspires me because it is so important for others to have someone that is consistent and reliable. Now, as a father I see how giving and how much loving sacrifice that is for a family. Truly putting others first is simple hero behavior I really admire.
The first thing I thought about was laying on the ground outside and looking at the sky. I often do yoga outside in the morning and take time to breathe and stare at the sky. One day last week a Bald Eagle was soaring along so I tracked it across the sky. For me, taking the time to connect and observe nature is a ritual that connects me to the sacred.
That things are not that different. I’m not very social and being home is comfortable for me. I’d like to be more social now though, I’m wanting more connection, I want to be more social.
Also, I’ve had to take a step back from work email and discussion. I’m not being helpful and need to refocus on what I’m doing and how I’m helping.
