Two Sundays since the beginning of the year, two weeks worth of pages from my Daykeeper planner already filled out, and here are my thoughts on this project so far:
- documenting daily makes me mindful of my thoughts and actions
- it meant recaps at the end of each day and if nothing big stood out, you notice the littlest things which, I'm starting to realize, are equally important (if not, more)
- the Daykeeper is a planner that keeps you positive and encouraged
- but although I've become somewhat more grateful towards life in general, I'm still wrapped in fear that all good things come to an end
|just a little self reminder|
I've been exercising consistently again and it keeps me centered. Knowing that I'm physically fit is an assuring thought and I'm grateful for what I'm able to do with my body. But there's this continuous cycle of swallowing bitter facts about our existence that we will all eventually die. Ugh. Whenever I find inner peace, dark truths enter, grabs a hold on me, and never lets go easily.
It has done me some good, at least: I thirst for more in life; worries seem so mundane next to these realities. Some nights I close my eyes thinking how it's a miracle just surviving the day and I wake up the next morning amazed at how I'm breathing still.
