One month to the last post here.
I have been coasting by and have been preoccupied by work (moved buildings, still the same job) and life in general.. I promised myself I would post here, come what may. The spirit is raring to write but the hand is too slow.
The good news is, I’ve been making strides on other fronts.
I have also finished reading Benmosche’s Good for the Money, and now starting JPE’s memoir. It’s literally a tome, and I discovered today, printed in small type, so this will be quite hefty reading for me. This will make my third of my six book target for the year and I think I’m ahead of schedule.
Reading again has been a very relaxing task that I am trying to make a habit of, like before. I am hoping to develop the discipline of actually setting aside time to read from day to day. While there are the hard copy books I love leading through, I really should try to go back to using my Kindle account which still has at least 3 ebooks waiting for me to read. The point is, I’m continuing to read.
I’ve also been actively organizing all my supplies — art and craft supplies, in particular, sorting the paper and the pen and the beads. It’s still a long way from being all set, but I am making progress.
I just wish I could have more time to stop and breathe.
I usually take my morning quiet time as a time to regroup and look at the so-called bigger picture. I sit at the breakfast nook, and I take the time to go through my magazines which sometimes lie untouched for weeks on end.. or I go through the news feed instead of typing away. I’ve taken to looking at other Instagram feeds I follow which allow me to sort of get updated with what’s happening in other fronts. I find that taking the time to sit and do things in a leisurely fashion helps me put my day in focus.
I try my best not to linger, though, and I always make sure I am conscious of the time. That’s how my typical day starts.
From time to time, I will attempt to begin a post here, but I have to get the hang of spontaneously writing without the temptation of editing and expanding my posts. I should start something that I can just write in one sitting. I wish..
And so I must send this off before I lose track of how long it’s been sitting in my draft folder like I am usually wont to do. Here’s to a better week ahead — waiting for spring and all.
