Please do not leave comments or feedback.  Prayers welcome.  Thank you.


I saw an episode of my favorite television show.  It took longer than expected.  But I wanted to b/c I kept procrastinating on it.  Seeing high quality content, is a priority, although it should be done after I finish my priorities, not before. I must be very careful about what I put in my consciousness. It seems I've demolished quite a bit of time by playing online MMORPG's, social media and movies. I remind myself i"m only here today because of the part of my morning routine I was capable of doing.  Instead of holding the whole world on my plate, which is scary, I should only think in terms of reducing suffering for myself. I admit that part of my I played MMORPG's or spent time there was first, feeling fearful that there might be a message for me from some bitter player or other, but that's letting other people decide my fate for me.  I do not need to read messages from ANYONE. I'm not in a relationship with anyone in the MMORPG. I realized something recently about myself that I want pleasure to be open and shut case.  I am not looking for a lingering circumstance.  I don't have to feel guilty.  I owe nothing to these people. So part of what fueled my procrastination is guilt, that and I thought i could conjure a deeper relationship with someone that I could not.  I knew in my heart those people were off limits, but I kept logging in.  So it's time to cut the cord and get back to the reality of where I'm at.  I know I was taking a nice pill of dopamine essentially, but it's not real, and I can have a comfortable life.  My goals right now are to finish my education, and work at a company where I can earn my desired salary for at least four years.

Ideally on work days, I'd like to wake up at 6am, do my breakfast-pills-exercise, hygeine routine and be done by around 10:20am, go to work for eight hours, attend any necessary meetings.  So I set my timer for 10pm, but I keep like groundhog day, not actually doing the selfcare at 10pm and I keep on watching movies or getting feelings of guilt when I do get in contact with another person that get in the way of my agenda, and that's not okay.  There are some basic things that I need to do in order to feel comfortable with myself, and they are: brushing and flossing my teeth or at least rendering myself in the position where I have done so, running (or walking depending on the day), doing my cardio routine for upper-body comfort.  That's why I devised this routine.  That's why I do it.  I wish I could do it sooner, and I think having a treadmill would help with that.
