This morning I was sitting with a headache and sounds being louder than usual. I stupidly disregarded that and went into work only to have to struggle home partway through the day trying not to fall over or vomit. After some sleep I made it upright again to sit.
Evening sit 30 minutes.
Lamrim Day Nine - Remembering the Kindness of Living Beings Very distracted sit. Probably to be expected given the craziness of the last week. Things should calm down a lot tomorrow.
Morning sit. Definitely a better sit than yesterday albeit a bit short. It is always hard to find more time in the morning since I am always eager to go work on all my exciting projects! Mind was more serene and it was easier to focus and breathe.

Lamrim Day Seven - Developing Equanimity Odd sit, as I had to shoehorn it in while my GF was in surgery (and I was running all over the place). Still, it made for a nice break in the middle of a hectic day.
This morning's sit including feeling all the reasons why in the past I was so reluctant to let people help me. Things that came up were feelings that I didn't deserve anyone's help, that I wasn't worth helping (and that I was worthless), that I shouldn't need anyone's help, that I had to be able ...
Evening sit. Today the main thing that came up was a childlike frustration about not being able to help someone who is having a tough time.
