It can pump me and it can calm me.
Music plays an important role these days.
I’m glad that I became an Amazon Premium Member so that I can have an unlimited access to music and I can even select a play list based on my needs.
Nowadays I can easily find the word, mindfulness, on Japanese women’s magazines.
There are many magazines at my beauty salon and I read about it briefly the other day.
Today, I was standing in a train on the way to my dermatologist.
I needed to hold a rail because a train was packed.
Since I was holding a rail, I cannot play with my mobile.
I looked outside, but I couldn’t see anything because windows were all fogged up due to a cold rain.
I remembered MINDFULNESS.
I didn’t close my eyes, but my surrounding created a perfect situation to listen to my feeling.
I have frustration.
While waiting for my turn at the dermatologist, I browsed on internet to learn more about MINDFULNESS.
Now it’s time to listen to my feelings to love myself more.
Perhaps, I can practice while I’m taking a bath because I sit in a bathtub for 10 – 15 mins in nice aroma and I’m relaxed.
I was off line for a while.
It wasn’t my will but I detoxed this weekend, both physically and digitally.
I had good days and bad days and bad days eventually forced me to detox.
Last week, I was busy with good days.
Weekend: I went to Wakayama Prefecture to visit temples and enjoy being in nature – ocean, waterfall and mountains & trees.
Monday: I went to gym.
Tuesday: I went to an ear doctor for check up – nothing is wrong, I can go for more diving!
Wednesday: I went to body work.
Thursday: I went to see physical trainer.
Friday: I had girls’ night. We had so much fun so we had a little too much of red wine.
Monday: It is a Japanese national holiday (Spring Equinox Day); therefore, my office is closed. I finally woke up and be active: doing laundry, cleaning room, even went to beauty salon to get my hair done.
Since I slept through Saturday and Sunday, I didn’t eat and I open SNS.
I was forced to detox; but I feel fresh.
My body is lighter (lost few kg over weekend) and my mind is lighter (didn’t care about message – I only noticed I received few today).
It’s difficult to detox for me because I don’t have a strong will.
It is a perfect timing to change my diet – eating meat and vegetables only.
Let’s see how it works.
I will share more about it after getting result on me.
Of course, I brought an umbrella with me.
I hooked my umbrella on my arm when I was on the train.
The train stopped suddenly and I lost balance.
I didn’t know what had happened then.
I saw a man suffering with agony.
I’m not sure whether he was lucky or unlucky, he was sitting.
When I lost balance, I poked him, slightly above his knee cap where you can feel the gap, with my umbrella!
He understood it was unintentional.
He forgave me quickly, but he couldn’t stop groaning.
I had to get off quickly because a train stopped at my station.
I silently promised to him that I won’t hurt anybody with my umbrella again.
