Kryptonite is routine, same ol', same 'ol.

Excited about, looking forward to traveling to Bali, learning how to play the cello, taking voice lessons.

Thinking about how to live a more fulfilling life, how to live more in alignment with nature, technology and if it will ultimately lead to the extinction of humankind.  

Changed my mind about whether it's in my best interest to strive, be productive, do it fast, give 100% at all times, and never quit; its OK to acquire enough, take a respite, slow my roll, let it be good enough, and release when it no longer supports my well-being.

Stuff I love doing includes writing poetry, journaling, drawing, painting, crocheting, coloring, listening to and watching interviews, watching movie trailers, going to the theater every week, Zumba, dancing, singing.

Right now I’m struggling with getting back to walking everyday, stretching regularly, including some kind of weight lifting a few times a week, and getting to bed before midnight...argh!
