Journaling

During December I devoted much time to become

acquainted with myself.

The process wasn’t always easy since I had to admit

my own misgivings and learn how to handle often

awkward situations.

The book I’d chosen was on the Kindle (one I’d have

to return upon completion) and to highlight info

wouldn’t have been feasible plus no archived record

of exercises completed (lists, answers and drawings).

Ah, I opted for a new ‘Happy Thoughts’ journal and

thankful for the additional expense.

New Year’s Day I submitted a 5-star review on the

Goodreads site as I’d participated in the 2021 book

reading challenge.

As luck would have it when I hit the square to post

I received a near blank page telling me ‘an error had

occurred’.

Although I admit this was an annoyance I handled

the situation well. Thankfully the site allowed me to

print out what I’d written. Phew!

It’s much easier to retype work than rewrite it. I

left the computer and chuckled to myself about

starting off year 2022 with a technological glitch.

I perceived what happened that morning with a

healthy attitude.

Yeah me!



The Dreaded Process Xs 2

Three words: decide, commit and repeat

  1. No longer could I live in this manner; it’s unwise and unhealthy.
  2. Reluctantly, I admitted to myself it was time to hire professionals.

30-day challenges ahead:

  1. Social Media Detox
  2. Declutter the apartment
  3. Self-carebudget more time for self

It took me quite awhile to find the proper photo today coupled with toggling
back and forth between block and classic editing. 

Unfortunately, my budgeted computer time is about to expire and from past

experience  I’m fully aware:

I’m on my own to continue to clean up a sordid

life mess. 

Next post I’ll discuss my feelings on Part1 of this long overdue journey.


Fixed incomes don’t appreciate too many out-of-pocket expenses!!

Awareness of Cluttered Mind

Hurry old gal 
Record hour's details
Tomorrow no way remember treasures
Yesterday's posts reading pleasures
Similar daily newspaper articles choose
Friends' posts knowledgeable 'n amuse
Fun began with questions asked and answered
Keyboard nearly wore iced coffee unfavorable enhancer
Moved on to read a few Haiku poems
There before my eyes a robotic man pic shown
Let's listen to country singer Johnny Cash
Nice videos tunes played piano class
Next stop on hour's reading journey
A place filled with darkness and inner beauty
Decision print post few unknown definitions vocabulary
Selection sidebar's print option sudden vary 
Pop-up window choice page range specs somehow foil
Sat staring seventeen total count backward feedback toll
Time for one last read before having heart-attack
Once upon time follower returns memories unpack
Younger years happiness wedding bells chime 
Hour's officially up library's designated closing time.
