Round One–Week Eight in the Rear View Mirror

The past few weeks have not led to any blogging, so I clearly am not meeting that goal. Things are generally better they were when last I posted, so I’m pleased about that. My sleep is still not where I want it to be, but there is definite progress. In part, I was thrown off by having a conference in Denver. The change in time zone was exacerbated by getting back to town at midnight; my poor psyche didn’t have a clue what time it was for a day or two. I have been using essential oils (thank you for the suggestion, Chris Kincaid), as well as turning off screens an hour before I go to sleep. Both methods help immensely.

Despite not blogging, I have been continuing to plan the A-Z blog posts for April, so that goal is coming along. I have also put in many hours on the sabbatical project. I have been hyperfocussed (ADD is sometimes handy), and spent over twelve hours this weekend working on it. The fiction is simmering in the background, but I can’t seem to give more than a few minutes a day to it. The good news is that I will be at the point where the non-fiction and the fiction intertwine in about a week, so there may be more synergy there.

I’m not at the point of giving up any goals, although I am falling behind on keeping the day job at bay as well as neglecting the blogging. I believe both goals are still within reach, if I just stretch a bit.

How are you doing with your goals? Just in your grasp, or still just beyond your fingertips? Whichever it may be, I hope everyone has a productive week.

  1. Some of my goals are moving along well. Others, not so much.

    I’m feeling a deeper peace about this than I ever have. I’m very aware that everything in my life is in a state of flux, and that it takes longer to do most anything when so much is changing – even if grief and the death of a longtime spouse and best friend isn’t the reason.

    I’m learning that it’s actually more productive to give myself lots of space between tasks – and to accept that I’m sometimes going to be drawn toward doing things that weren’t in my original game plan. I’m finding that trusting those feelings and honoring them, brings a banquet of possibilities and insights.

    I hope you can continue to do what’s most meaningful in as many moments as possible.

  2. Hi Elizabeth! I hope you’re sitting down. I know, yes it’s me. It’s been a while since I’ve been by. I’ve been sick with Lyme and to be honest, exhausted. So not much writing or blogging has been happening for me. I just don’t have the energy. But I am so that you seem to be doing better. Glad to see your post in my email. And it’s so great to see you meeting most of your goals. Keep it up! 🙂
