This has been a very interesting first week. There is one word which comes to mind to describe this week. Wow!! I have been having a bit of a problem with the 15 minutes of sitting still and not moving any part of my body. As I am a control girl I found this to be quite amusing. Apparently I am one of those people who will find other exercises easier to master. The rest of the assigned tasks are going very well.
Something quite amazing happened this morning. I woke up before 5:00 am with what I call Vacation Energy. I very much enjoy my sleep and have never been an early morning girl. The only exception to that is when I am leaving for vacation. I wake up happy and excited to get my day started. Today was just a normal day. No vacation planned for today yet I woke up with Vacation Energy. It is now 9:30 pm and I am still going strong. Apparently my subconscious has taken notice of all of the changes that I have implemented. I have also noticed that I have a heightened sense of taste and smell. Although I have always been observant of things around me that seems to be heightened as well.
It is time for my nightly reading aloud and my 15 minutes of non movement. Tonight I am going to try something different. Over the weekend I was at the Miramar Air Show at the Miramar Marine Corps Air Station in San Diego, CA. We were invited guests at the Navy tent. It was an amazing day filled with displays of what out military planes were capable of doing including shooting things and blowing things up. We had a Marine stationed right in front of us. It was over 100 degrees that day. This young man was there to make sure that we were protected. He stood guard as he was instructed to do. It didn’t matter that is was really hot that day. He had a job to do and he did it. No complaints. As I watched him I thought about the training that I was going to receive over the next six months. I thought about the training that our military personnel have to go through. I am sure that there are times when they must have no movement. The difference is that no movement might save their life and the lives of those around them. I decided then and there that no matter how difficult this training was that I was going to succeed. I am off to do my 15 minutes of non movement. I am confident that I will report a successful outcome next week.
