Day 61

Today I learned about the mixed effects of social-networking on self-esteem, about natural selection, about the architectural movement for functional housing in the 1920s, and about the life of this beautiful, courageous, wise person (be warned: I cried).

“The decision to be positive is not one that disregards or belittles the sadness that exists. It is, rather, a conscious choice to focus on the good and to cultivate happiness… And when we devote our energy and time to trivial matters and choose to stress over things that ultimately are insignificant, from that point we perpetuate our own sadness, and we lose sight of the things that really make us happy and rationalize our way out of doing amazing things.”

-Christopher Aiff

Today I meditated for 18 minutes. I did a self-guided meditation medley of breathing, awareness, and mindfulness.

Today I acted kindly by volunteering at the local charity diner (from Days 26 and 45) serving food, cleaning dishes, and conversing with patrons.
