Excitement is mounting in the Norris household ๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽก๐ŸŽข

Wow. Probably the most exciting game of hockey Iโ€™ve seen. What a comeback by the San Jose Sharks to win the series in overtime. ๐Ÿ’

We finally got a win! Had fun watching the Jazz dominate last night. ๐Ÿ€

Earning this award was a great push to get outside and appreciate the earth today. It also served to be a great way to do my most important work: thinking. ๐ŸŒŽ

This might have been the most productive Saturday in months. Looking forward to relaxing with the Jazz game tonight. ๐Ÿ€

๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ Pause practice is a great centering tool I learned about today. At any point, take three deep, slow, relaxing breaths and allow your mind to be still. Iโ€™m excited to try it already.

Micah (age 6): โ€œDad, can you play soccer with me?โ€

Me: โ€œNot in the house, bud.โ€

Micah: โ€œOh, thatโ€™s right. Can you play with me in the front yard? It would be good for you to get some fresh air.โ€

๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ This is so important to remember. Even with good things, and especially with the bad, nothing lasts forever. This is particularly helpful with emotions. Allow yourself to feel fully, and let go when it is time.

Like a sandcastle, all is temporary

Iโ€™ve been thinking more and more about setting up a personal newsletter to share blog posts and happenings in my life. Iโ€™ve been looking at Buttondown thanks to @macgenie but havenโ€™t fully committed yet.

Enlightenment is the quiet acceptance of what is

๐ŸŽง Loved the latest episode of Core Intuition. I resonated with @danielpunkassโ€™s tendency to beat himself up (and then to beat myself up for beating myself up), and appreciated @mantonโ€™s validation and support to him (and me, since I applied it to myself). Great conversation!
