I can’t say I was paying more attention today, but I wasn’t as hard on myself. And even better, I practiced first thing in the morning. And even better than that, I have class this afternoon. I often give myself a pass on days when I go to class. There’s no reason I can’t do at least a gentle practice in the morning (or evening).
I was clearing away the breakfast things when the thought popped into my head, “This is a good day.” My guess is that the morning practice was partly responsible.
