April is just about over. Only one more poem to go after this one. Although it’s been quite the challenge, I’ve had fun so I think I’ll still throw poems into my posts, maybe once a week. The month of May I’m declaring as Focus on Healthy Habits month. Yee Haw! Doesn’t that sound fun!
I’m going to do at least one purposely healthy thing a day. The plan is to make these actions accumulative to build some better habits so I have more energy and feel better. Like one day I’ll make sure to go to bed on time, another day I’ll go to a yoga class, another day I’ll go for a bike ride, and so on.
And in May, I also will switch my writing focus back to my book. Mary Carroll Moore’s book “Your Book Starts Here” with all it’s information on creating, crafting, and selling your first book will help me get started. I’ve taken a class with Mary before, plus I follow her blog, and she really is good at helping writer’s get through the process of writing a book.
Last Wednesday was a tough day. My neck has been bothering me, so I went to the chiropractor who told me how inflamed my thready, scarred shoulder and neck muscles are. So? What’s new? He did his thing which hurt like hell! But is supposed to help loosen things ups. We’ll see… So far, it just feels like some big lug used my back and neck as a punching bag.
Anyway, enough complaining. I’m reading a book called “When Love Meets Fear” by David Richo. The book advises me that I need to sit with my feelings and just let them happen rather than eat an entire tub of Ben and Jerry’s Coffee and Heath Bar ice cream. So that’s what I’m trying to do. Just sit, breathe, and sip a cup of tea.
