“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” – Robert Louis Stevenson
What seeds did I plant today? I found myself focusing primarily on social goals and maintaining my relationships.
- I called my great-aunt to check on her. My great-grandmother, her mom, died this week and she took it hard. She seems to be doing better now than when I saw her on Saturday.
- I talked to my step-dad for over half an hour. We rarely talk at all, but we both enjoyed spending time together when I was in Michigan this week. My mom has a poverty mentality and they’re both just very stressed out right now. He and I have never really been close, so it helps that I’m supporting him at this time.
- I briefly talked to my dad. It was his grandmother that died, so I wanted to make sure he was okay and find out how the funeral went. He has some good memories of his grandmother, but he seems to be okay.
- I went to the bar with Amy. I rarely go out and I feel especially broke now, but it was nice to spend a little time together out of the house.
- I talked to Tiff about moving back to Reno. We both loved it there and living together was amazingly easy.
- I exchanged a couple of texts with Justin. That’s all it takes to remind me that he is wonderful and I am glad we are friends.
- I applied for a job and started a drastic overhaul of my résumé.
- I called a temp agency, but I’m not sure what to think. I’ll finish my résumé and then take it in to a few different places on Monday.
Some days I don’t use my phone at all, but today I managed to really connect with people. I’m not very good at that, so it was nice to find it so easy to do.
I found this exercise really helpful, so I’m going to try to make it a weekly feature.
