I’m back from Toledo. It was freakin’ awesome!
Okay, not really. But I actually did have a good time during part of the trip.
Here are some things I learned from my trip to Toledo:
1. Perrysburg, Ohio (a suburb of Toledo) is a cute little town with great little pubs lining the sidewalks.
2. The La Quinta Inn there isn’t bad, either. There’s a gas station less than a block away with a very friendly, funny cashier who will gladly sell you the liquor of your choice.
3. When your coworkers get drunk, it can be quite interesting to find out what they reveal about themselves.
4. The Dog Whisperer is a good show.
Why the Dog Whisperer, you ask? Well, a couple of my coworkers mentioned how much they like the show, so I thought I’d Tivo it. I have already watched three episodes and am enthralled by it. I especially like how the dog trainer (Cesar Millan) talks about how it’s important to keep calm energy around dogs. In other words:
Calm = Power.
I feel like I can totally use that advice in my daily life. I mean, I can get all excited and bubbly (as I am wont to do), but beneath that excitement, I want to maintain a steady calm energy.
So I’ve decided to try to meditate every day.
It can’t hurt, can it?
Just think--I could meditate every day and become enlightened.
And all because of a trip to Toledo.
