*Since my family first got an NES, I’ve had a controller in my hands. Exploring new worlds, meeting new characters and experiencing stories… in some ways, I’ve just connected better with the world through games. However, it’s also very important to me to be present in my life, to improve myself, to go out and MEET the people I’ve connected with online and to expand my knowledge. I spend hours in games; how do I level myself up?
In this weekly series, I’ll chronicle how I’ve improved my “stats” with completely arbitrary scoring.*
-2 Intelligence – How did I make myself a little smarter? What did I learn?
I learned that even planning a relatively small elopement is pretty involved. And I think I have wedding brain.
-3 Charisma – How was I less awkward or more beautiful?
Awkward mess alert. The highlight of my week was dropping my favorite bottle of perfume on the bathroom floor (and my foot), shattering it. On the bright side, my bathroom smells magical now…
+1 Strength – New workouts, breakthroughs, challenges.
My spin addiction is back! I seriously recommitted to myself and my health this week. I ate nothing but good foods and juices and incorporated 2 new spin classes into my routine. My Tuesday night guy is SO motivating!
+2 Defense – Where did I consciously avoid or deflect negative energy?
I am so proud of how well I deflected cravings and said no to binge eating.
+1 Luck – Something good that happened this week.
If you dont work in a corporate bureaucracy, this will be less exciting for you, but my Webex license FINALLY got renewed. I can host meetings again!
+1 Wealth – How did I save towards my goals?
I’ve decided to revive my #NoSpendFeb experiment for August. Aside from wedding expenses and bills, minimize all spending! Speaking of bills, I have decided to take them OFF of auto-pay. For the last couple of months using auto-pay I have felt LESS in control of my money. It’s a reminder to do EVERYTHING with clear INTENTION.
