JusJoJan ~ Jan. 25th

Today’s prompt: journal

December 6th, 2021 the e-book I requested sent to my 

Kinde Reader turned out to be the best self-love workbook 

I’d read in years.

Unfortunately, with an e-book there’s no way to complete

the exercises thus I treated myself to a brand-new journal. 

The work which at times actually was fun came to a close

on December 28th as did my 2021 Goodreads Challenge. 

All questions were answered with 100% honesty, and the

journal also is comprised of graphs, pictures and mini stories.

I learned quite a bit about myself beginning with childhood.

A journal is a great tool and one you can refer back to when

or if you feel need to clarify an event.

I’m glad I took the time to embark on this self-love journey.

I wish I could’ve purchased a paper-back or hard-cover of 

this book.

Sadly, neither are offered for sale.

New Year – New Me

To those who followed me faithfully I’d like to wish:

Happy New Year 2022!”

During my hiatus I’ve been working on other projects

and learning all about self-love.

Imagine – a bit unbelievable and bit late in game called life.

If you’ve ever taken the time to be 100 percent honest with

yourself, you might be extremely surprised at the outcome.

Today (at least for now) I feel I’m in a much better place

emotionally with fresh new ideas for the year ahead 2022.

For the month of January, I’ve decided to participate

in a new process.

Each day will find me dedicated to completion of ‘one’

additional task.

In 2021 life, (me, myself and I) overwhelmed me and

slowly I was sinking like a ship, drowning in depression.

“Why doesn’t anyone offer to help senior citizens?”

If felt like nobody truly cared anymore. This was reality

not what some would refer to as self-pity especially

since I’d continued to tackle other responsibilities.

A bit bewildered I faced the fact: ‘It was time for change.”

The choice was totally mine.

I paid out-of-pocket for some professional cleaning

services.

On the first morning the woman delegated to help me

brought along her mother (additional help) since she’d

taken her Mom to an appointment earlier.

It seems I was fortunate to have two ladies assist me

and only charged hourly price for one.

A wakeup call that day when the older woman possed

a question to me.

The immediate look of shock on my face resulted in

her quick apology.

It’s certain I asked myself the same prior to being

asked same by a total stranger.

The question has stuck in my mind like an intrusive thought.

Difference is the remembrance triggers me to act with positivity.

So today I’m returning to Blogosphere in hopes to fill up

ALL the days in my January calendar.
