Just One Of Those Days

2013-01-27 10.31.38Yesterday was one of those so very rare days, when everything in the world seems to line up and progress becomes effortless.  I woke up mostly free of pain, dodged the showers on my walk to Caffe Nero, had a great time reading before heading home just before 10am.  The plumber arrived on time to fit the new fire in the living room, which is rare enough, but he was a great guy jovial and full of stories.  While he worked I worked, energised by his example to fix a half dozen nagging jobs around the house that had been waiting for months.

In the afternoon, glowing from all these accomplishments and well fed with smoothies I spent the afternoon writing a strategy paper for work and then jumped on the exercise bike to catch up on my Instapaper ‘videos to watch’ queue.

The day finished off with a family dinner and TV around our new glowing fire.  Perfect.

Progress is so hard at work now days that I sometimes forget how wonderful it feels, especially when it’s framed by good food, good company, relaxation and meditation.  Of course it didn’t last, today has been a trial.  I’ve had a migraine most of the day which I’ve tried to battle, with only limited success, in order to let me finish the document that started with so much promise yesterday.  Still there’s always tomorrow.

the photo today is of the bleak windy sand dunes that decorated this mornings walk, as I was trying to listen to a podcast by the overpowering Tony Robbins who I’m sure has important things to say, but he’s an extroverted extrovert and too much for my introverts ears to cope with.
