Florian 122 Posted November 13, 2015 Author Share Posted November 13, 2015 Day 19What am I grateful for today?1. Getting up early. Still can't wait to begin the next day when I sleep. Seriously, sleeping is the only thing in my life right now I could do without...2. Writing. It's a form of acted out meditation for me.3. 10 Idea Challenge. Every day a blog post. Exhausting but good.4. Living in the US. I love the different landscapes and climates all within one country.5. Darkness in the morning. It feels like I am up before the day comes around.6. Low carb diets. Even though I am not losing much body fat right now, I am still committed and not giving up. See below.7. Brahms String Quartets. Although now that I write this I am listening to the Brandenburg concertos by Bach.8. My vision board. It's great to look at it every morning and remind myself of my goals.9. Having the whole day in front of me. That goes with getting up early.10. Warmth. I am grateful for a lot of things, and there are only a few things I draw a line - cold is one of them. What would make today great?When my video will upload to Youtube without any sync problems. And it did!Daily affirmation.If I am exhausted right now, it's just my body and mind catching up to new boundaries. Three amazing things that happened today.1. I published another blog post. I think I have it down now to publish regularly around 6 pm. I am also ahead two days of my won schedule. Meaning I have the raw blog post for the day after tomorrow drafted today. That way, if some emergency arrives, I can still post.2. I recalculated my calories and realized that my assumptions were wrong: steak does have fat. Surprisingly, I was surprised about that. So I recalculated my portions and came to a quite different result for my low carb diet - though still a diet I can follow. I'll see how that goes.3. I cooked for the next week. My non-stick frying pan really made me use only very little additional fat, which was great. How could I have made today better?I was a bit distracted in the evening - my energy level went down. Maybe I should have sat down with a book. People I want to meetPeople I'd like to meet are:(a) Open to new ideas and creative.(b) Definitely positive-minded.(c) They can be either intro-or extrovert, I am pretty much in the middle.(d) It would be a bonus if they don't depend on TV.(e) They like to share a beer or two in a smaller group.(f) They are entrepreneurial and want to create something.So... I searched for a "young professionals" group in Jersey City/NY, and the closest one just met today. Hmph! I'll join when they have a new dtae in their calendar.So I spent like forever searching for the right course on meetup.com, and of course where do I end up, me, the efficient German? The "Getting Things Done" meetup in NYC next Monday at 7 pm. But its' actually awesome, because the full title is "Minimalism, Simple Living and Getting Things Done". It's funny, because I could not really describe the group of people I want to hang out with - I rather be open to everyone. However, "Getting Things Done" seems to have found me.That is a central theme in my life: I wait until I see something I find interesting and then jump on it. I am wondering whether I should rather learn to do it the other way around: first define what I really like and then finding the right group.Be that as it may, I am stoked for having found the group.Then, I signed up for an opera meetup group in NYC, next meeting is the 20th of November for Puccini's Tosca.
