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!



A New Way of Thinking

If the mountain seems too big today
then climb a hill instead

If the morning brings you sadness
it’s okay to stay in bed

If the day ahead weighs heavy
and your plans feel like a curse

There’s no shame in rearranging
don’t make yourself feel worse

If a shower stings like needles
and a bath feels like you’ll drown

If you haven’t washed your hair for days
don’t throw away your crown

A day is not a lifetime
a rest is not defeat

Don’t think of it as failure
just a quiet, kind retreat

It’s okay to take a moment
from an anxious, fractured mind

The world will not stop turning
while you get realigned

The mountain will still be there
when you want to try again

You can climb it in your own time
just LOVE yourself until then.

What Day Is It Anyway? Wednesday April 1st 2020

Answer to question ‘what day is it anyway’

Another day ending in letter ‘y’
Twenty plus four distancing socialize

Desire to share humor icon saved
Social media sources refuse behave

Soon discover no choice relinquish hope
E’er update pictoral post number thus cope¬†

Pensive person usual refuse give up
Today tired and acceptance out-of-luck

Television channels – radio stations
Internet pages full situation labelled grim

When alone with nobody else around
Pefectly okay chat with arachnid found

Some good old humor benefit health
A giggle for lonesome who take care themself

Humorous post read:

Day 4 of social distancing:
Struck up a conversation with a spider today.
Seems nice.
He’s a Web Designer.
