So. June 2017. I watched The Lost City of Z the other day, and there’s a scene where the main character becomes caught in a fishing net and almost drowns. That’s kind of how June 2017 feels.
My new multi-focal glasses finally arrived, and I discovered that sometimes less clarity is better than more. And I had to sign up for a conferencing service that offers you a soft focus option that I found very hard not to engage.
|My transplant clinic doctor gave me a good talking to about my weight. I am starting to feel a little desperate now. As if I have tried everything and nothing is working. Though of course, I have barely tried anything at all.|
I started reconsidering activity trackers.
And it occurred to me that I need a better reason for losing weight and getting fit.
All those virile young men cutting down the trees made me feel old and frumpy and irrelevant.
Which is partly what started me thinking about an Outfit to Conceal Your Identity.
|Beauty: Home||😐||🙁||I think we can safely say that my plot is well and truly lost. There is so much crap everywhere that I just don’t know where to start anymore. On the plus side, you can still see the floor.|
|Beauty: Garden||😐||😐||I remain surprised by the amount of light in the garden with the trees gone, and the flow through to the house as well. It will be interesting to see how hot the house gets in Summer.|
|Friendship: Friends||😐||😐||Quick lunch with Katy, though other Katy and I couldn’t get it together.|
Thought about breakfast for a Dinner Party.
|Friendship: Creatures||🙂||🙂||Dogs are blessed creatures, aren’t they? Always content. Always ready to eat or nap or play as the moment dictates.|
I’m hearing the fox a lot now, and I’m wondering where its den is.
|Friendship: Contribution||😐||🙁||I offered someone what I thought was advice, but turned out to be product research. I feel used. Not Exemplum Virtutis.|
And then there was #withrefugees.
|Pleasure: Adventure||🙂||😐||Mostly crickets. But I got another Haiku on the board. And shared productivity journalling.|
|Pleasure: Recharge||🙁||😐||Managing to turn the computer off, but not read. There has perhaps been too much napping.|
|Wisdom: Growth||🙁||🙁||Mostly stagnation…|
|Wealth: Business Development||🙁||😐||See also Friendship: Contribution.|
Joined a “Mastermind” group, and while we have only had one meeting so far, it looks positive.
|Wealth: Income||😐||😐||Still haven’t calculated my book income.|
I increased my editing rates, and I’m still getting work.
My June 2017 Productivity Journal entries include a lot of notations that I didn’t get as much done as I wanted to, but I gave myself a few stickers as well, so probably a balanced month all up. I did feel productive enough to set a launch date for Holistic Personal Finance, but I’m going to wait a few more weeks before I announce it (to be sure).
How was June 2017 for you?
