As much as I hate to admit it when the Ubiquitous They are right…?
The Ubiquitous They were right: I do feel better (and more grounded) if I don’t check my email first thing in the morning. Or hop on Facebook within, like, four seconds of consciousness. (It’s not like I’m going to suddenly discover the mysteries of the universe on Facebook, anyway.)
I’ve spent the last couple of days waking up with my class text for the day, and doing my journeywork early, before my brain’s all cluttered up with daily minutiae, and…it’s true. It’s better. My day feels clearer. (sigh.)
Now, to figure out how to get this monkey off my back. It keeps whacking me in the head with bananas filled with curiosity when I first roll out of bed, and screeches at me that I might be missing something important. (Which I never am. Nothing that couldn’t wait thirty bleedin’ minutes. Not the point.)
I think, going forward, my wake-ups are going to be full of coffee, dog snuggles, and communing with the Council. The rest just isn’t important.
