So far, so good. Two seasons down in 2010 and I’ve managed to not completely destroy myself and the world. But as Jackie Chan told Jaden Smith in the awesome Karate Kid movie: “Your Focus needs more Focus.”
Saw this quote this morning: “I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
Unfortunately I’ve been tilting more and more towards enjoying the world as I plan my day every morning. Of course, this is not balance and frankly, I don’t know how Katy has allowed me to get away with it for this long.
I love the summer and I love using auspicious days as a means for starting something new. Especially refocusing. Now, since refocusing on this weight loss situation hasn’t been working out (neither gained nor lost so I can’t complain), I’m going to switch gears for a season and dedicate myself to something more important and possibly meaningful.
There’s a couple of things I can do to Focus on my Focus. But last night I was struck with the idea of dedicating myself to daily random acts of kindness. What better way to demonstrate L.A.G. than actively searching for ways to improve universal karma? We’re all connected, helping you helps me, what you give you receive and all that blah blah blah aside…I’m hitting up this RAOK for the entire summer as a means of staying focused on what is important. Loving. Giving Thanks. And remaining Present.
I found a list of 70 daily acts of kindness. So if you know me, hold me accountable. Ask me what today’s ROAK is from time to time. Make sure I’m posting updates here, not to show off, but to show up.
June 21 RAOK: 1. Open the door for another person.
Hmmm..I do this all the time anyway. BUT today I’ll do it mindfully.
