Wow! What a wonderful few days of blogging. I have some new followers, and my most recent Haiku has received more likes than anything I’ve ever posted. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that people like what you have to say. I woke up this morning and after scrolling through my WordPress notifications and getting to know some of my new followers, I was hit with a harsh reality – be careful what you ask for, because you just may get it. My primary goal with blogging is to engage others, and now slowly but surely others are becoming interested, which now means I have to write.
Blogging has been manageable the past few weeks, however Christmas break is quickly coming to a close and I’m beginning to feel the pinch of knowing that on Monday I go back to work, and I begin two new classes. This reality has put me in a bit of a funk today. I know there’s plenty of time to do everything I need to do, however balance has never been one of my strong suits, so like everything else – the work in progress continues…
I’ve been down the past several days with walking pneumonia and an ear infection, both of which I’m sure are feeding into my “woe is me” mentality even more. The codeine cough syrup has made me sappy and contemplative, which if I felt better would provide some great writing fodder, but has only left me feeling blase’.
The good news for today is that even despite my codeine induced sappiness and contemplativeness, I haven’t wavered from a decision I made recently to end a relationship with a man I’ve been involved with the past several years. Trust me when I say, this can be tough when you’re rocking a medically induced buzz, but by some miracle I’ve managed to stay focused and not succumb to my emotional side. This is progress!
All in all, it’s been just another day –
…a day when I’ve only gotten out of bed to let the dog out
…a day when I’ve yet to get dressed
…and a day when I’ve watched far too much Hallmark channel.
…it’s also been a day for which I’m profoundly grateful for, and one I’m glad I could share with all of you.
