555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 66.
Time Awake: 8:01 a.m. Stepped out of bed at 8:49. Went back. Slow start.
This is the actual Day 66! (Inside joke)
Wrestlemania Weekend has past, which I utilized as a “get away” from the regular routine of my Life. As with previous years in San Francisco and Seattle, while being away I get an opportunity to soak in an unfamiliar surrounding, which in turn causes me to look at myself and my Life. And, perhaps most important, I learn.
A few non-wrestling things stuck out.
I know, more than ever, what I want. And I feel the overwhelming drive to do all the necessary steps to achieve what I want.
It also became clear what lingering things still exist and how they impede me. In the “365…” project, I wrote of the “elephant in the room.” To this day, the “elephant” still exists. But referring to it in that way does not help me.
The “elephant” refers to a difficult time in my life, parts of which are still ongoing. Certain actions have started and will ultimately take care of the situation. But there are emotional elements that I never noticed. And there are the lingering parts of what I’ve referred to as “baggage.” I got to see first-hand the damage that’s been done, things I’d never even considered.
All of which is very, very good. I’ve learned. I KNOW things about myself that I was clueless to until this weekend.
This provides a new focus, new additions to the “Things I Have to Take Care of” list.
And I enjoyed the weekend beyond words. Win-win all around.
