Currently, I am on the treadmill at work listening to Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood….that’s right, we have treadmill desks that we can use when we want. Yes, I have a Blank Space radio station on Pandora. I also may have been treadmill dancing because no one else is in the treadmill room. I needed an attitude adjustment…Sitting at a desk all day kind of wears on the soul a bit. I am not particularly fond of steamy 90 degree weather either so I’m not doing my daily walks on the outside. I let myself forget how good it feels to walk, to clear my head, and to “shake it off”.
So here I am trying to make my mind a blank space kind of like it was when I was 22…I seriously could probably write an entire post with sentences including one or more Taylor Swift song titles but I won’t. See this walk and Taylor Swift have already drastically changed my attitude.
I woke up to the sounds of my baby’s voice. She makes my heart happy and light. I shared a morning routine with the person who I couldn’t imagine life without. I left my beautiful baby in the hands of the most capable and loving hands besides her own mothers’. I listened to a podcast that got me interested in meditation. I read a funny blog post by a blogger I had checked in on this morning because she had been so quiet but she’s still up to her shenanigans. I did some mindful breathing before my work day started. I have a nifty desk that raises and lowers..and a white board…gah, I love a white board. I ate a good home cooked meal for lunch. My training class got pushed back (Woo). I get to go home in an hour to be with the people who matter the most. We will be well fed. Well slept. And loved.
My life is good. Sometimes I forget. I should not let that happen.
