The Old Grind is history.
I went beyond and transcended the Old Grind today. I threw myself into my work and enjoyed it as much as I could. I kept reminding myself.
Like any other day, I started wearing down as the day went on. But it was still a concept in my mind, to treat my work as an opportunity.
I like concepts. The last few have been very helpful to me, including the Hedgerow of Warring Angels. I thought of it today, invoking it.
And Gigantic Strides. I was thinking if I get a whole list of these concepts, I'll indeed have to make a list, so I can look at it.
Maybe I can make my own deck of spirituality cards, like where a person will pull a Gigantic Strides card and accomplish something big.
Or a Hedgerow of Warring Angels card, then be surrounded and protected by the Hedgerow, clearing the way to fulfill your great destiny.
My mentality reaches for what comes next. I don't know what it is. But it's somewhere in the folds of that gigantic thing inside my head.
Now it's late. I've been up since 5 a.m. I need to do the dishes, clean the catbox, take the dog out, brush my teeth, and go to bed.
Even though I'm tired, do I consider doing all that the Old Grind? No. Thank God for my dog and cats and that I get to do the dishes.
I didn't really want to write anything else tonight. But I thought, "That's just the Old Grind talking." Write it! It's an opportunity!
