If you look at my blog then I really haven’t been up to much at all. And, in a way I haven’t.
The truth is I have made a conscious effort to stay away from computers and technology much more. Although I confess to being an Instagram and Spotify person, those two I really like and are great unwinding tools for me, the rest I have tried to just leave alone. I have been successful, pretty much too.
I went away to Wales, and took some pictures which I will edit and share because it a beautiful place, but it reminded me that there is the world outside, and getting sick and all that involved, did eventually, lead to me making adjustments to how I am living life and what is taking priority. As I mentioned, this summer is an opportunity in my competitive life, which this blog, and, in fact, no blog, is about, that may never come round again, and I am lucky to have the opportunity to devote a lot of time, effort and energy to that. Right, now, somehow, it is entirely possible, and this shocks me to contemplate, I am actually one of the better competitors, in my category, in the country.
It really depends where you look, creatively, my office is still very much a declutter and dejunk project. I really have too much in too small a space, and I could not effectively do what I wanted to do in the space I had, and it was really not working. So I am committed to finally, sorting that aspect of my creative life out, and using what is a big space effectively towards a goal, and yes I do have a goal. But that is taking time because it is not a priority.
Also, I am learning skills and losing some of the fears that my “illness”/neurological issues have created and am getting the confidence to slowly embark on ventures and ideas again, but I know this is going to be a very very slow process, both because its not something I can put in number one spot immediately, and because I just do not have the energy levels I had before to devote to anything. And, also wisdom as taught me that cakes bake better on the right heat for the right time, and rushing never makes for a good final product.
So, unlike other Dear Diary’s this more of an update, check in, where i am, which is here, doing my thing, trying to do life and tackle the challenges this blog has talked about, and which are still very real and present, while focussing on the opportunity I have in my competitive life, and yearning a little for my creative Mouse to get out and scurry soon
