Or I don’t know. I mean, I’m doing this on my phone. What I mean is I’m typing all this on my phone, versus my laptop or just a decent keyboard. Using just my thumbs instead of the glorious technique involving all fingers on both my hands. Behold, the power of my opposing thumbs.
I mean, I don’t even know what that means. I took melatonin a couple of minutes ago and I’m hoping I can produce something of value right now before that kicks in, IF it even kicks in… which I’m sure it will.
I nearly forgot to post my daily workout video on YouTube so that’s where I was before deciding to jump into Evernote. It didn’t help that whoever or whatever detects and decides on copyright claims finally wised up to the fact that I watch a good deal of Gaki No Tsukai while I work out, and blocked the visibility of my original video. I had to work on Splice to (1) just zoom things up so I upload the video quicker, and (2) to properly work in a YouTube approved audio clip.
I mentioned in said video that I was feeling pretty lazy – not chill, but lazy – today. I didn’t do that much of a workout. And quite frankly, I don’t want to do this either… but I think I do need to get words out of my system, and as that happens, I don’t know, I guess the memory block or the writer’s block would just get purged. I really would want that.
I have a lot written down in another note, to be honest, from earlier today – they do count as words for today’s quota, but they also contain information that I’m not ready to make public. It involves a business venture I’ve jumped into, that much I’ll say.
I guess it’s also safe for me to share this – if you have something going on, and if it does prove to be profitable, then you shouldn’t stop improving on it.
The blessing of a business is that you have far greater control over your time, but you ought to respect the time you’ve been blessed with, before you start feeling regrets. In other words, treat your time right, and time will treat you right. This applies just as much, and especially when you know what to do, but are just too lazy to do it.
Respect the people you cancelled appointments with, respect the people you suddenly stopped contacting by making the most of the time you gained from these sacrifices. Make the most out of the time you have, not by overthinking how to make the time count the most, but by actually doing something.
Go, and learn as you go, as opposed to learning before going. I’ve seen this work countless times before, and whether things turned out for or against me, the learning stuck to me a whole lot better, because my entire being was more involved in the process. Expose yourself, and take in all the air as you step out of that comfort zone.
And I’m not vilifying the comfort zone. Nor am I giving the outside world higher praise. The point is to be fully present, wherever you are; reap the most benefit, and make the most out of your time by way of being fully present, wherever you are.
And again, as you make the most out of the time you have, you respect what and who you sacrificed along the way, in your efforts to make more time.
I’m having my own mixed emotions about writing this, because I shouldn’t be confining my words to just the 1000+ I place here… I really should be aware of all that’s being communicated by my entire being, beyond the words. I really should be writing without words, speaking without sound.
So yeah, as I said to start this all off, help.
Im barely halfway through the thousand and I literally have 1% left of my battery.
Well, now I’m charging but I’m not somewhere the snooty part of me calls conducive for writing. (Gasp) am I then, out of my comfort zone?
Sweet Jesus, help me. I don’t know what to say, I don’t know what to share, I just want to go ahead and burst out, in empty sounds, a wordless explosion of surplus energy… in a blaze of glory better experienced than shared in words.
Lord, help. Yes, I suppose it would benefit me, to pray, in the absence of anything else to say.
Thank You, Lord, for the luxury of having a literal hand-held computer to efficiently write and share what I have or what I don’t have in my head. I do remember ages ago that I was enjoying doing this exact same thing, on a Palm TX – one of the first, if not the very first devices I’ve had closest to a smartphone in the earlier parts after the turn of the century. Today I do the same thing I could imagine 20 plus year-old JB was doing back in the day – releasing energy the best way I know how – by writing, and praying, and praying in the form of writing, if necessary.
I pray for anyone and everyone who reads this. I pray for the blessing of no less than God – the Creator of all things seen and unseen, the maker of the heavens and the earth – to fall upon and be seen and taken in by everyone who bothers to read all of this drivel and rambling. I pray that the life-giving Gospel given through Christ and proven by His finished work would be made known to one and all, but especially by the people who read this, and even the families they represent.
I pray for an improvement in their circumstances if necessary, but more than this I pray for the supernatural peace that goes beyond all understanding to keep their bodies, minds, and entire beings together as they endure everything they are going through right now. I pray that in the middle of this faithless world, that they would taste and see that Christ paid the ultimate price for them to understand the unfailing love and faithfulness of God towards them.
May we all have peace in spite of all the storms we face. May we all have great peace before the storms we hesitate to engage in.
May the everlasting love of God – made known to us through His Son, Jesus, and in His death and resurrection – hold us captive and overwhelm us, that we would overflow in said love and peace.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
