First off, I’ve decided to stop focusing on all five of my virtues every day and start focusing on just two a day. I feel like, for me at least, trying to work on all five at once leads to neglect and the failure to make any real improvements. I will therefore begin a more centered approach and work on just two a day.
Today I concentrated on tranquillity and industry. I had planned to try a type of meditation last night, but that didn’t end up happening. When it was time to go to bed, I just completely lost interest and didn’t do anything. So not my best moment, a failure in both tranquillity and industry. Other than that, I had a pretty good/tranquil day today. I was exhausted this morning, but by seventh hour (rep theatre) I was doing pretty well! I’ve got a lot of homework to do this weekend but I’m trying to stay positive and not let it weigh me down. So overall I’d give myself a 3/5 for tranquillity today.
I have struggled a bit today with industry, which is frustrating considering how on top of things I’ve been throughout the rest of this week. I didn’t finish a couple of assignments that could have been done in class if I’d been more productive, leaving me with weekend homework. And tonight, I let reading my mom’s People magazine distract me from homework (for anyone who’s interested: Paul Rudd, pride of Kansas and also the Shawnee Mission school district, is People’s sexiest man alive). I’ve made plans to be very productive this weekend and hopefully, I will actually be able to make that happen. Today I’d give myself a 2/5 on industry.
