Cool, Calm, Collected

It’s one thing to have a very calm Sunday, but to carry that attitude all the way with you into the next week is so unheard of! Be that as it may, I do feel very lucky to have spent the day without any traces of stress or worry especially since those two things have recently become synonymous with my existence. All day long I’ve felt very light and buoyant, almost as if I’ve got a handful of balloons tied around my waist.

Since my mood has been so lifted today, I figured I ought to make the most of it while it lasts and I started on the first assignment of the next module in my course. The module hasn’t started yet but I thought it would be a good idea to get a head start on the inevitable while I’m in good spirits. Plus, this module is all about creative lighting and I’m finding it very interesting and stimulating thus far. Tomorrow I’m going to start on the second assignment and see how it goes, and maybe by the time the module starts I’ll be all done with my assignments!

Productivity is a wonderful thing. I’m amazed at how effortless all of my weekly tasks seemed to be today. The weather was so nice that I even sat outside on the patio and had two separate meals! Also, I went to the gym on time and had a great workout and made some progress on the monkey bars, too. I’m really enjoying this spell I’m under, if you couldn’t tell. It’s empowering and uplifting to breeze through the day without feeling the weight of my mind bearing down on me all the time. Oh, and I made cupcakes so it looks like my good mood is useful for more than just productivity, folks.

All in all, I’ve had a stellar Monday. Productive, thoughtful, energizing, and most importantly, calm. See you tomorrow!
