Fearless Writing Challenge; Day 91: Change is Coming

Have you missed me?

I took a few days off, perhaps you noticed.

I’m at the end of my headcold. I feel silly for whining about it, especially when I have friends and family who have very real health issues, and I am complaining about a cold.

In other words, I am very thankful that’s all it is, because I know it could be much, much worse.


I am happy to report I am on the mend…still coughing, still stuffy, still fatigued, but on the mend. A few more days and I will be 100%.

I’ll be better about eating my apple a day to keep the doctor away.

In fact, I might be teaching again, so it should be easy to get that apple, right? 😉


What’s Really Going On?

You know I haven’t been feeling like myself.

I’m not sure I can explain to you how I am feeling. There is a lot going on that I am not able to share with you (see? I do keep confidences!) Let’s just say there are little fires and bigger fires within my extended family that need monitoring, and that has taken up my heart and mind recently. #thinkgoodthoughts

So there’s that.

And there is turning 50 soon.

Which has seemed to have led me to a place of great transformation. The things I thought drove me, propelled me, pulled me, pushed me…they don’t seem to be doing that right now.

Accomplishment. Noteriety. Acknowledgement. Minor fame. Fortune.

Is this a new normal for me? I’m not sure.

What will the new skin look like, once I am done shedding this old one? I don’t know.


In the meantime, I am keeping busy and oddly (for me) not thinking too much. More doing, less thinking. It feels good.

For now, I’m just letting the brewing happen, slowly.

Then I’ll see what I am left with.


In the meantime, I don’t anticipate blogging every single day. I’m aiming for a few times a week.

Tell me, how are things for you, as we head into the last weeks of the year?

    1. Maybe it’s because it’s the season to go undergroud, hibernate, go dormant…not sure. I definitely get introspective in December because I am usually on retreat near by birthday AND I do a review of the year as I head in to a new one.
