Procrastination - Part 1: "Punctuality" (Day 24)

Within the next posts I am going to be walking a specific pattern that I have allowed and accepted myself to participate in, which is procrastination in every field I have to express myself towards what I enjoy and don't enjoy.

I am going to start with "punctuality". For a long period of time I have been late for work, practicing with my band and meeting people/friends.

Regarding my job, the typical scenario is as it follows: 

I program my alarm at 6:30 am because I start at 8:00 am. But, when the alarm starts ringing, I add 10 more minutes and then 10 more and so on, until I "feel" pressure and concern for the possible consequences I might face with my boss.

I usually arrive 5 minutes late for work, which is not too much, but as nobody tells me off, I continue doing the same everyday. 

I have realized that I have become addicted to that adrenalin of being in a hurry or "danger", only participating in polarity because when I get up late I am worried/scared of arriving late, but then when I haven't been noticed by my boss, it's like "phew! Everything’s fine!".

So, I am not taking responsibility and moving/changing myself, because I am expecting others to tell me what I have to do.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to participate in polarity when I first feel scared/worried and then once I notice nothing "bad" happened, I participate in the mind activation of a positive feeling of "relief".

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to be addicted to polarity movements instead of physical movements.

I forgive myself that I have not allowed and accepted myself to see/realize/understand that I do not have to expect others to tell me what I have to do as something/someone separate from me as one, because if I realize a specific point in self-honesty I have to physically move myself.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself the thought "just 10 more minutes - once the alarm rings - I bet I can make it again" - to exist within and as myself.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to trust my own thoughts and back chats. 

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to let my mind, thoughts, feelings, emotions, and back chats direct my physical movement. 

When and as I see myself reacting with the desire of sleeping 10 more minutes after the alarm rings, I stop and breathe. I realize that my participation in the desire/thoughts of remaining there inhibits me from physically move myself and be me as the physical the directive principle of my experience.

I commit myself to stop and breathe once I hear the first ringing of my alarm at 6:30 when I have to be at work at 8:00 am. and release the energy.

I commit myself to get up immediately after the alarm rings at 6:30 and after doing the four-count breath.

Getting Angry with Students (Day 30)

Within my job as a teacher I can remember a few moments in which I took things personal, but they happened during my first year. Now, I am on my third year as a teacher and it's hard for me to get angry with students, because I prefer to address the issue through communication and agreements.
Today, I got angry with a student and I didn't even realize it until another student that was next to me said "teacher, don't get angry".
The scenario went as it follows:
Students were presenting oral reports. Before they start, I take the time to tell the class that they have to be quiet while their classmates are performing, because I have to assess them and if there's too much noise, I can't hear very well.
It was hard to me to keep them completely quiet today - teachers know that not all lessons with the same class work the same due to different factors -. So, I had to constantly stop and say "guys, be quiet. Your classmates are performing". That happened d…

When You See Only What You Want To See (Day 162)

Someone made an observation about me after communicating with them a couple of times. They noticed that I tend to see only what I want to see; meaning, that I understand things in the wrong way.

At first I was within myself like “But, how can that be possible if I try to be objective when I observe or listen to the information being shared?”, until today while watching a video and then, when giving it a second watch, I realized that “Hey, the first time I watched the video I understood something completely different to what I am understanding now”.
So, I asked myself “Why did that happen?” and in self-honesty I can say that I was not fully aware of what I was doing. I was watching the video, but at the same time having a chat and also concerned about a problem I had. 
It’s like for moments I am paying attention, but then I go into my mind. Then, I get back to my body/awareness and I listen to the information and ‘understand what I want to understand’ or what it’s related to what I was t…

Mr. Nice [Day 174]

I read a conversation between two people where they were talking about me. Person A was sharing a ‘problem’ that had had with me, while Person B was judged by me as Mr. Nice, because they were not supporting Person A, but adding more to the problem. What I mean by ‘adding more’ = no practical support, but continue talking about the same thing, without a solution, but only supporting Person A’s words without questioning them.

What I didn’t like was that for instance Person A was saying stuff like “He said/did this and that, fuck him”, while Person B went “Yes, that’s too bad,he is wrong, I understand what you are going through. Fuck him”, without even knowing me in person, without even talking to me once at least. So, I went within myself “This person thinks they know me? Plus, Person A’s arguments were an interpretation of the events, so Person B was basically reacting to Person A’s reaction. That’s why I say it was not supportive, but reactive.
Why did I judge Person B as ‘Mr. Nice’? …
