I am having a terrific day. I just needed to start out this post by saying that. There’s nothing greatly special about it. I set my alarm for 11:45am. I had went to be at 2:00am. Everything was normal. I woke up at 10:00am. I laid around in bed for about an hour just drinking in and out. By 11:15am, I was ready to wake up and got dressed. I ran to the gym. I did the gym thing. I then wrote a blog post on the way home. I showered. I called my best friend. And my day has just been so vibrant since then. The weather is beautiful, and I’m ready to keep the positive energy flowing.
When I arrived at Starbucks today, I realized I wanted a blueberry muffin. I haven’t really thought about it much over the past week or so since I cut it out. Really though, I have cut out quite a bit of my sugar intake. I worked two days at the pizza shop, and didn’t eat any of their delicious cookies. I have been eating bananas and almonds instead of a blueberry muffin. When they Starbucks got the blonde espresso, I cut out sugar from my coffee completely. The real improvement is the alcohol consumption over the past two months. I still go out. I still have drinks. I just am not out all night, or if I am pace myself to keep myself relatively sober. I’ve shifted.
I have begun to discuss what is next for the evolution of me. And it’s not exactly complicated. I need to buy a coffee pot. I can still have my iced coffee. The espresso may be a bit complicated. But I can figure all that out as I go along. The soy milk park is just as easy as the coffee pot. I use have to get it. I just need to do it. This will push me into a much better financial place overall.
So, I begun this today. I went and looked up how much a coffee pot would cost. I then looked up how much a personal espresso machine would cost. Then realized I needed table space to put this, which could double as a workspace at home. I fell in love with this idea almost instantly. (Yes, this happened as I was writing this). It means that my late March and April goals is to finish setting up the kitchen that my roommate and I should have done almost a year and a half ago when we moved in.
I even thought about the idea of paying for my faux-Van Gogh that is probably still sitting at the place in South Dakota that I had it framed. And then I just decided to send a text message to have that taken care of and sent to me, although I’m not 100% sure if it will happen.
I am literally just taking everything in the moment right now. Everything is moving so fast. It’s a wonderful experience.
Today, I am just trying to live in the moment and make things happen, and to just be happy with the awesomeness of today. That’s what today is about. Presence.
