There is SO MUCH.
There is so much to do, and there are only twenty-four hours in each day!
How do we get it all done? How do we squeeze every last bit of enjoyment out of every day?
Well, it might have helped if I hadn’t laid in bed this morning playing this random new puzzle game on my phone. That ate up thirty minutes and it wasn’t really on my hypothetical list of things to do. Okay – Wheel Of Fortune deleted. Much better!
It’s been difficult to make time for writing recently. There has to be time for work (ugh), for the house, for Tee, for reading, for family, for friends, and (most importantly) for Teddy.
What happens when I don’t make time for writing every day is that every post turns into a snapshot.
#heart – Last week, Tee’s parents came to visit. They snuggled with Teddy, made him smile and laugh, and showered him with gifts and love. ❤
#body – I’ve been sticking to my 5K training plan (see here for more info!) – it’s been almost a month, but I’m still following the plan for Week 2. My theory is that my body will let me know when it’s time to move forward. No need to force it.
#mind – I am carefully considering signing up for a writing course at Harford Community College – Advanced Fiction Writing. I don’t think I have any business calling myself advanced – but I kind of just want to sign up and see what happens! When the time is right. I might wait until after our Thanksgiving Vegas adventure. (More on that to come!)
#spirit – Everything is #spirit lately. Even the same old things – ’cause we’re doing them with our cuddly teddy bear. ❤ BUT ALSO – we went to visit Fort McHenry this week as a birthday adventure with our future-history-professor nephew. We listened to a ton of Hamilton and took some awesome photos of the cousins together.
#soul – …………
My #soul nourishment has been lacking, majorly.
I have not been nourishing my writer’s heart lately, and I haven’t made much time for meditation or reflection.
However, I have plans – to sign up for a writing course (see above), to potentially sign up for a training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and to engage in some self-compassion work a la Kristen Neff and Brene Brown (see more info here!).
There’s more to write – there’s always more. THERE IS SO MUCH.
More to come.
