As I’m sitting here getting over a 3 day…something….I’ve had a bit of time to sleep, be sick and reflect. As, I’ve mentioned, I’m working towards a different future. I’m working on a healthier lifestyle. I’m not perfect at it. Nor, do I ever expect to be.
Today I was feeling a little better from whatever virus took over my body, and I decided to learn. I decided to learn about technology, essential oils and various writers’ tools on the internet (which I guess could also fall under “technology”).
Oh, what a wake up call! I’ve never considered myself computer illiterate. I still don’t. But….there’s certainly a computer literate gap. When did this happen!? Wasn’t I just on top of the game, 10 years ago? Oh. Okay.
I have to say, though, this learning process has been great. Frustrating! But, great. Mainly, because it was the wake-up call I needed to understand that I’m not “on top of my game”. There’s SO much out there!! So much has happened in 10 years! 20 years! I can remember logging into AOL from a land line. What? OH, that awful sound of trying to connect…
Thank goodness that part of technology has long since gone.
So, today, I was feeling better. I decided to make my sick day worth my time. I researched, read, gained insight, wrote and problem-solved. The last point was the biggest learning experience. Problem-solving. I didn’t know what I didn’t know. After an hour of working, it hit me….OH….that’s what it’s supposed to be like!
Have any of you experienced this? It’s not comfortable. But, after more research and investigating, it all came together. At least, it was more cohesive in my brain.
I don’t know if this post will have an oily journey inclination. But, I’m diffusing Abundance™ . This oil combines oils such as Orange and Ginger, which were used by ancient cultures to attract prosperity and magnify joy and peace. And, I need to attract all of the prosperity, joy and peace I can! I have to say it is bringing me some peace and clarity.
So, in the parameters of this post, I hope you go forward with your dreams and desires. I hope you always reach further than what is comfortable. I’m a major introvert. This is not comfortable for me! But, I believe in my dreams and desires and goals. I believe in learning and stretching oneself. It’s important to grow. It’s important to keep our brains activated and busy. My father has Alzheimer’s. So, I’m committed to keeping my brain active and learning as much as possible.
Promise me you’ll do the same. If we can all keep learning, we will keep ourselves young.
