Early Reflecting on A-Z, Discipline & Haiku

This A-Z is the bomb diggity.  I am meeting new folks.  Melanie Crouse is one such person.  She is fantastic.  You must check out Melanie’s Stories

I did and I listened to the optimal living daily #852 podcast on 7 discipline mastering practices by Leo Babauta.  Say that 3 x’s fast.  🙂

First off Justin “the voice” had me at hello there Jilly.  I could listen to him 4eva.  Now I am gonna stick to what I say I am gonna do.  Like exercise and eating right.  I won’t spoil it for anyone, listen for yourself.

In less than 10 minutes I learned that I am gullible and very easily influenced.  I need to quit it!  lol.  One step was to sit in your hunger for a while (I am paraphrasing) Doing so would teach me that the world will not crumble if I am hungry.  If I sit in my hunger, I realize that I will survive and I can then make better choices like eating an apple instead of gorging on chips.  But they are Lays and no one can eat just one!!!! However bad Jilly tendencies came back.  Causing me to create this Haiku.

my brain is fuzzy

because I’m very hungry

bad habits die hard

I like sitting in it.  Hunger pangs are addictive.  Then when I do eat, bliss.  Like the chips I scarfed down the second I entered the house.  And that is not good folks.

My daily share.  Sorry for the dark turn.  The next one is funny.  I promise.

As always, more to come.




Searching for quiet

His mind is loud and screaming

Way out of control


#SoCS ~ Cramp

Let’s give this a whirl shall we?  The prompt today is cramp.  Hmmmm.  Think, think, think!

Cramp, stamp, tramp, camp, ramp, amp

Why am I rhyming words?  Am I going for poetry on the line of roses are red?  Ugh!  Saccharine. Let’s try Haiku. 5/7/5.  Simple right? Wrong!


Waves constricting and flowing

Cramps give birth to life

That is awful!  Don’t worry I won’t quit my day job. To make up for it, I leave you with this:

As always, more to come.
