I'll admit I'm neglecting to post here lately. I'll be back eventually. But right now I'm doing all my blogging in a private diary with a focus on taking better care of myself. I write in that blog every single day, keeping track of how much sleep I get, what I eat, the activities I do, how well I do at drinking more water, and how I feel emotionally. I'm finding this is also a good opportunity to make short lists of important things I need to get done each day as well. It's all very mundane, but extremely important to me and no-one else. I write a short entry in the morning and again just before bed.
This devotion to a daily diary has been very successful in getting me back on track. So I will continue with it as long as I see a benefit from it and as long as it takes to get some good habits and a good routine in my life.
I still have a lot of care taking responsibilities, but I finally feel I'm not putting myself forever on the backburner. I am giving myself daily attention--no more putting that off for the vague future. But I'm still getting much done around the house and yard, too.
At some point I will return to blogging here, posting pictures of
flowers and birds, but hopefully also some original essays and poetry. I am
spending more time again at the piano and and finding a new desire to
return to painting and writing. So in those famous words, I'll be baaaack.
