I have had no inspiration to write this past week. I was visiting Mr. Right and family in Minnesota over my birthday (two weeks ago) and since my return I’ve been speechless, unable to start a new project here.
I’ve logged into WordPress several times over these last ten days in an attempt to put something together but for some reason, I didn’t see the number until tonight. I’m not religious and certainly not superstitious (or am I?), but seeing that I have a total of 666 posts published (since 2007) kind of jumped out at me.
That number has been sitting there, unwavering, for over a week. I can’t let that affect me and it certainly hasn’t been the cause for my writer’s block (although missing my boyfriend & loved ones has been) but I’m hoping that being aware of this – as well as the negativity that’s taken over – will help get me back on track.
I have a lot to share, much to talk about and promote but I do need to address, first, my lack of activity. I mean, it’s not like I’ve been so busy with life that I haven’t been able to focus on writing. It’s been just the opposite. I haven’t been motivated to do much at all, instead dwelling on my “situation,” missing my boyfriend and loved ones in Minnesota, letting negative thoughts take over.
We all let that happen from time to time, but for me, this last week has raised a major red flag, alerting me that something needs to change. I need to change, start embracing the positive things that are going on around me, the wonderful ways in which my son is developing and growing, and make time to get active.
Tomorrow, I will be getting my membership set up at LA Boxing. They have kindly offered my son and I membership in exchange for a one-month promotion of their facilities and services.
My goal in these next 30 days is to not only get in shape, physically, but to keep track, monitor and share how staying active positively affects my mental health. I have no doubt that after I get some endorphins and adrenaline pumping once again – and on a regular basis – that my world will start to look different.
Wish me luck!
