Today I lamented a bit, I admit, as I didn’t have a fresh, new wellness topic to share with you all. I went on with my day and reviewed how I was doing so far. I guess you could say it was a Maintenance day.
Today I paroused through my lovely Bloom calendar, which I’d neglected to complete for a bit. At this point it becomes more of a journal of What I Did, vs. a plan of what To Do. That’s okay. It gives me an opportunity to be grateful. I rather enjoyed writing “Finished Reading Harry Potter Book #4 with Dear Son!” because that was a special, memorable milestone in itself.
I also reviewed my personal finances. After last week’s money manifesting, reselling of items and canceling of subscriptions/ services, I now have to follow up with these companies- as I am not seeing the refunds credited to my accounts just yet. (Item #10 from last week was: Claim What’s Mine!) And now I can go back to Half Price Books to trade in my Goblet of Fire cassettes for cash.
It was a good time to revisit my goals and set my intentions. I want to review my mantras and uncover what I am really saying to myself. What goals are left over from last year? What can I do about them? What new goals have found me?
I didn’t complete my Guam novel last year, but I did visit the island, made connections, and developed more ideas. I got a new idea for another creative nonfiction book: short stories with recipes (very do-able!). Also, I flirted with writing a jukebox musical. This one intimidates me, I admit, but honestly I have so many ideas here, it’s time to just do it. (Hello, three day weekend!) Something that I really enjoyed last year was an online course. I love learning. It’s like school, in the privacy of my own home, under a blanket! I am considering one or two courses that I can take in 2016.
I reached out to my friends and family. Connecting is so important. Chatting with my Bestie and my sister keeps me grounded. Chatting with my new writer & reader friends is so fun and exciting. I found a new Twitter thread to follow and even participate in. I have identified a photo to contribute in a future Monochrome Madness photo call. I scheduled the next few guests for my Friday Friends series.
