This blog is really stuttering isn't it ? I play a bit, do ok then get go back to real life. Did poker become so unimportant ? The irony of course is that this attitude of it not being so important is what makes me play better when I do sit down. How to find a balance between motivation to play and the emotionless reaction to results ?
Another consequence of this attitude is blog being quiet. I don’t need to shout about winning at poker or excuse losing at it anymore. Whatever is, is.
Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn’t more complicated that that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.
I'm still going to the gym at least twice a week, sometimes more. I'm still playing poker at least twice a week. I'm playing the occassional live poker game.
So far today I haven't smoked or been emotional.
I am practicing accepting the present moment as it is.
I am not sure why I'm posting this as it is enough to write it, it does not need to be shared.
Ah well :)
