Writing Again

Writers seem to be either stressing over the “dry spell” they are in or stressing over what they write!

I’ve been in a funk for a while but do believe that the light is finally shining! I’m writing more lately.  A lot more.  It feels pretty darned good, I’ll tell you.

I visited my doctor a couple of months ago and she put me on some new medication.  I’m sure this has had a part in my feeling better.  But I think it’s more than just the medication.

I’m taking better care of myself these days and this is probably one of the major reasons for my lift in mood.  I’m eating better than I have in my whole life, most likely.  I’m exercising 5 or 6 days a week.

I’m seeing Huge Benefits from making better choices, in what seems like a very short period of time.  Not only am I feeling better, but I’m also losing weight that I’ve needed to lose for a Long time. I have more energy. I’m getting more done and I WANT to do more.  I’m sleeping better, even though I’m sleeping less!  I go to bed tired.  But it’s a Good Tired; from exertion.  I haven’t needed or used a sleep aid (melatonin) in a month!

I’m spending more time doing the things that I WANT and need to do.  Like working on my house, working out in the yard, etc.

And I’m writing again!

Happy Friday, all and as always, thank you for joining me on this journey. ❤ Penny

    Hi Penny, thank you for your loyal readership and stopping by my blog today! ♡ The first line of this post really drew me. I can say for certain that relate to lamenting over production and content. It’s important to remember why you started writing in the first place.
