On better days and tiredness
(But in a good way)
Today has been a much better day for me. Though the weather has not been brilliant sunshine, there have been blue skies in patches and I even spied the sun a couple of times.
I spent the morning writing and got the bulk of another chapter written. I started my timer (for my ten minutes minimum) and by the time I finished, way more time had passed.
One thing I’ve noticed though, and I thought I’d share it with my fellow writers, is that yesterday I left it on a half finished sentence, and today, it was far easier to pick it up again.
It’s not a pleasant feeling when you have to leave it there, in some sort of suspended animation, and I’ll be honest, it made me twitch a bit, but I’m actually realising that the twitching is worth it, because it was so easy to jump right back in.
I found that I wanted to get going this morning, because I wanted to finish that sentence. I’ve done it again today in the hopes that it pulls me to write those oh-so-difficult, first few words tomorrow (I shall keep you updated).
This afternoon, I had an appointment for a massage to try and fix my back, which keeps going into spasm (it’s also super good for my anxiety). Then I went to visit a friend that I haven’t seen for a couple of weeks, and we had a good catch up (and I got to cuddle her very cute dogs). And then, to complete my busy day, I went on to Church, where we had a worship team practice.
I’m now home, curled up with my furbabies (who have finally forgiven me for leaving them for most of the day), with Law & Order SVU on the TV, while writing this.
I feel totally exhausted, but today, it’s in a good way. It’s nice to not feel that big black cloud of gloom hanging over me, and I intend to try and make it last as long as possible.
And so, my fellow bloggers, I am now going to leave you. I hope that your day was as positive as mine, and if it wasn’t, then have some virtual sunshine, and remember, without a little rain, there can be no rainbows.
