Getting My Life Together


While working through the organization and inventory of my bookshelves, I got hungry and wanted a snack. And it occurred to me that all I have in my house is healthy food. I am currently 20 pounds under what my weight was back at the end of September 2013. A lot has happened in my life, and one of those things is that I’ve made an effort to eat healthier.

My life also crashed pretty hard in the last month and some change. Working through everything that’s happened and trying to get my life back together hasn’t been easy and the last month especially hasn’t been much fun. Things still aren’t where I wish they would be, but I’m hoping that writing this and leaving it on the white board in my kitchen will help me focus more on the good things and less on the negative things in my life.

You can tell that I’m a writer because that’s what I thought about when I realized I wanted something to snack on. I might even be a poet sometimes, but I try not to focus too much on that aspect of my creativity. So now I have written one of those seemingly sappy motivational things and posted it all over the internet places that I own or operate.

Look! I wrote something! I think it’s not crappy! Yay! And now I will post it and share to EVERYONE! HA! Take that, internet! And in true writerly fashion, I am certain I will eventually reread and see all the things I posted and groan, wondering what I was thinking. And when THAT happens, I will say to myself, “I wrote something! I think it’s not crappy! Shut up, stupid brain!” 🙂

Today is also my first day walking without crutches. So the idea of dancing seems like such an unachievable goal, but I CAN WALK!!! I’ve only been on crutches for the last three months and now I can walk without crutches! I will learn how to walk. And then I will learn how to run. And all the while, I will learn how to dance 🙂
