Just to be honest, I was born on Monday.
I used to weekly summarise my progress in my self-improving path on every Wednesday but, since I decided that I need to write more, I prefer to let Wednesdays to The Charming Cookie Jar and move this recap to Thursday. Also, I really love Thursday’s Child by David Bowie and it makes me feel so cool listening to it while I am writing my post.
So, today marks my second month of mindfulness. What has changed so far? Not so much on the outside, but a lot on the inside.
On the outside:
- still following my morning routine;
- still struggling to not spend my mornings on social media or browsing the web;
- still struggling to find a good afternoon routine that gives me free time to take a walk or go to the library.
- I created a wall of goals, which for me is more a wall of notes and inspirational quotes.
- I have more than 50 new followers on Ninatrema and 10 all brand new followers on The Charming Cookie Jar! By the way, I love you guys. Keep on following, you’re going to read more and more in the weeks to come.
- I opened a Twitter account @NinaT76 and started to talk to a lot of strangers.
- My routine and my new, more positive, mindset allow me to work more, to work better. So I decided to post here on every Monday and Thursday and to post a new story or illustration on The Charming Cookie Jar on every Wednesday and Friday.
On the inside:
- clouds of negative thoughts have been spotted moving far away from me. The time before bed, my moment of greater grumpiness is now a nice moment to cuddle with my husband or to practice meditation while he reads beside me.
- I am more relaxed, open and happy in general. I am more prone trying new things.
- I am experiencing sudden epiphanies, about my past, my relation with my parents, my day by day reactions and relationships.
- I am experiencing a new feeling of affectionate coolness towards a totality of past and present personal issues. Actually, I don’t know how to be more specific. It’s like watching things happen to someone that is not me, but to someone that I like and comprehend.
