I have made some new goals for myself recently. In addition to my daily Holosync session (I am now on day 290 of that without a miss) and my “pen” writing in my paper journal (I just re-started after a 2 week break and am now on day 10).
I have committed to this blog for 6 days a week (Sundays off). And I kept to that schedule for the month of September, but I’m beginning to struggle with coming up with content every day. I need “Food for Thought.”
I need to read. Reading is my “food.” When I am engaging with another mind through a book, all kinds of connections start happening and there is a firestorm in my brain, and I think that I will never STOP writing.
But without food it’s like gnawing on a shoelace.
I have so many books cued up on my Kindle and on my bed table it’s not even funny. I need to schedule in some serious reading time. But where? Where can I find or steal time? What needs to go?
Today Facebook was down for awhile. I logged in and all my friends were GONE. It was highly disturbing. I felt like something I had painstakingly built had been destroyed. And in a way that was true. I have built something there: a network of shared moments, and shared lives with quite a few people, and I felt bereft when it suddenly disappeared. (It returned.)
But when I think of where I will find the time to read, I know it will have to be here; I will have to cut back on online activities. I spend entirely too much time here– time that would be better spent reading.
So I’m going to try to set some parameters here. Anyone have any experience with doing this? Like “no computer after “X hour” or before “X hour?” How about a media fast? Anyone done that?
I’d really appreciate your input on this.
