“The most exquisite paradox: as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all… As long as you want power, you can’t have it. The minute you don’t want power, you’ll have more than you ever dreamed possible.”
― Ram Dass
Hello and welcome to another week!
Whoever you are and wherever you are, well done. Just, well done. I mean it.
Everyone is going through their own stuff in their own way, having their own ups and downs and that’s ok. Welcome to the merry-go-round of life.
A dear friend of mine forwarded me this link to a great blog piece about this very thing. In a nutshell, it’s ok – no, it’s more than ok – if you want to change your goals and metrics for measuring success during this time. Sure, some of you will have taken on a cooking challenge and have the time to crush the novel you’ve been meaning to write and run a marathon in your apartment while learning the cello and acquiring a new language. To those people I say, “bravo!” indeed; that’s mighty impressive, really.
But to those of you who are just safely and successfully navigating another day – feeding the kids, maybe getting some work done or applying for a job, negotiating a bank loan, checking in on your parents, teaching long division – I also say, “bravo, well done,” and I mean it. Genuinely.
Success right now may look a lot different to success a couple of months ago. So be kind to yourself and be ok with it.
Now, for some cool stuff…
Jeff Bezos is building a clock. Not just any clock – the biggest clock in the world. It’s 500 feet tall, in a mountain, powered by day/night thermal cycles and will run for 10,000 years… well, that’s the plan. Check it out here.
Sleeping. This might well be the definitive guide to pillows – you’re welcome. But please remember to keep your spine in a nice, neutral posture… zzzz…
Soup. I *built this soup a little while ago and it was delicious. Easy, tasty, great for when/if the weather turns. The oldest family in the world eats this daily as part of their routine. Not a bad time to build a good routine, too.
*Napoleon Dynamite reference.
That’s me for another edition of Mindful Monday!
And May the Fourth be with you.
