D – Dormant


This is my version of the A to Z challenge. 

D

Dormant

Meaning: Inactive but capable of becoming active

Dormant.  Boy does that ever describe me the last couple of months!  I’ve basically written Nothing since December.  Shame, shame.

That’s why I decided to give myself this challenge.  It is at least a way for me to write SOMETHING each day.  Maybe it will help me get back into the groove.

Another D word.  Have I just been too Distracted?  I’m not sure.

Those of us that write have all experienced this at one time or another:  I sit down with my faithful little laptop and stare at the blank page in front of me.  Nothing comes.

Somehow, I think that if I stare at that blank page long enough, like magic, something will pop into my head.  Lately, that hasn’t happened.

In the past, I would hear a line in a song, or something someone said and that was all I needed!   My mind was off and racing to fill up the white space on the page.  What the hell happened?  I’ve been stuck before, but not for this long!

Another D word.  Discovery.  Tomorrow I take off on my little adventure.  I’m going someplace I’ve never been before.  Just me.  All by myself.

I’m excited about this.  I look forward to seeing a new path of roadway and new scenery.

I’m trying very hard to Be Present.  “Enjoy the moments” is a phase that a friend of mine uses quite often.  Simple, but powerful.  It reminds me to stay focused on today, now, the present.  Tomorrow will take care of itself.

All we really have is the Now.  Tomorrow is never promised.  Yesterday is gone.

Well, looking back at what I’ve written here today… Wow.  I’ve really rambled today!  I guess this has been a good exercise for me.   Letting my mind just, go.  Writing it all down as I go.   Is it Good writing?  No.  But it’s writing and that’s the point.

 

 

Kicking and Screaming!


Alright, alright!!  I changed the theme up on my blog.  I have resisted for a long time, but after getting some feedback that said my blog looked “generic”, I decided I better try to spruce it up.

After looking over about a Zillion themes, I settled on one.  🙂

What is this new thing with WordPress, About.me?  I had to sign up with them in order to create an “About” page?  Maybe more revenue for WordPress.  I don’t know.  But After several failed attempts, I finally figured it out.  Sheesh!

I hesitate adding too many widgets to my page.  I think it just clutters things up.  But I will tweak the page a little bit here & there.

If you have any feedback for about the new look, I would appreciate hearing form you.

BY THE WAY, I would also LOVE to hear feedback regarding the CONTENT of my blog as well.  I’m tough, I can take it!  Bring it on!

Thanks all!

Penny

Lost Momentum


Alright.  Enough!  I’ve let someone rain on my parade long enough!  I’ve seemed to have lost momentum here.  But I am going to do my best to let the sunshine in and carry forward!  I’ve had my pity party.  It’s over and done.  I signed up for the Zero to Hero Challenge again because I felt since this was a new blog with a new beginning, it was time I did something WITH my blog!!  I’d like to thank my favorite peeps for hanging in there with me on this journey.  It has not been an easy one.  Here’s to the future! 🙂
