30-Day Discipline Experiment – Day 9

It’s hard to have discipline when you’re tired.  It’s hump day.  Funny how we think we have to keep going and work on stuff every day.  Just because in my mind’s eye I can work on something every evening, doesn’t mean the body, mind, and spirit are willing. 

So tonight, it occurred to me is a free night (if I let it be).  Instead of pretending to work or working on something half heartedly, I can call this a night off and do whatever I want.  Actually I can do that almost every evening.  The freedom is heady!

Lately I’ve been asking myself “What does my spirit want?”  For me that’s been a surprisingly hard question to answer.  Tonight, though, I know that my spirit wants a night off. 

Here’s my short list of what I might do tonight after finishing this post (I’m brainstorming):  read (I have a house full of books), watch a video about discipline and self-control under pressure (sounds boring but I’m actually leaning toward that), take a walk along the river (I saw a bald eagle on the way home flying over the river), call a friend, zone out sitting in my red leather chair with my feet propped up on the ottoman with my eyes glazed over and my mouth open, file something (yeah right), make a salad (yes that will be dinner) … I guess I’m tapped out (must be tired). 

OK, It’s now Miller time :)

    I wish we all could have a Miller Time! :) I mean, we CAN, but only really if our name is Miller :)


    Hmmm…a bald eagle? Here’s what that means: Eagle – Divine spirit, air, the sun, power in battle, protection from evil, clear vision, success, prosperity, wealth, intelligence, renewal, courage.

    This sounds like a lot of the stuff you’ve been presented with lately and a lot of things you’ve been working on…gotta love it when the symbolism in our lives is right on time.

    Love and light,


  2. Hey Lena – cool stuff! Eagles are grand aren’t they. All the things you’ve said….plus an eagle eye :)

    Anywhoooo……my friend, thanks for these neat vibes. Cheryl
