Ha Ha! I kept my word. It's Monday and I have a post. It's a relatively short post, but I have one because I'm trying, and isn't that what really matters?
So, I was out on my walk when I came up with an idea that will help me keep up with some kind of schedule. Back when my brother was on a naval vessel in the middle of the ocean, I used to collect things and interesting tidbits that he might find humorous or informative in a word document. When he called home, I could tell him all about it or I would just print everything out and send it to wherever he was stationed. One of my walks reminded me of this and I decided I could do that for my posts. I always think of things to write during the week, but never remember come whatever day it is I decide to post, in this case every Monday. So I figure, why not write in a doc every day and then edit and post every Monday afternoon. Seems like a plan. Let’s see if it works.
Well, it already hasn’t because I didn’t write down anything from that day or the day after and I had a very interesting dream that I think would’ve been a good read that I didn’t write about either. All of that information wasted, lost to the abyss that is my mind. It’s okay, though. Lesson learned. I can keep track of my thoughts later.
In the interest of saying something helpful, I'll say that you shouldn't forget to look after yourself. Take care of your body, watch what you eat, exercise, and drink plenty of water. I say this because I had to visit the dentist today and I was afraid that I wasn't controlling my sugar levels again and that I was going to have to lose another tooth. I've already lost four. It's not enough to brush and floss when your own saliva is eating away at your enamel. I didn't lose that tooth, though. Turns out that whatever is wrong with that tooth needs a cap not a filling. It was sort of like a wake up call in that I've been slacking in my nutritional and physical needs.
It's kind of difficult, you know. The body needs a rest day so the muscles can do their thing, but the trouble with a rest day is that it's even harder to get moving when the rest period is over. I think I write the same way, like when I get an idea in my head, I'll keep going until I'm done with that thought and then I'll take a rest day and won't write again until I force me to do it. Something like that. Just take care of yourself. You want all your teeth for as long as you can keep them.
Inspire, motivate, believe. Let’s all work together to make a better world. We can be each other’s cheerleader. We all rise together.
