Day 365 Now What?

Posted by themirrenlee on 02/01/2013

Okay, officially, as opposed to reality, this is my final post for the 365 day writing challenge. In reality, I’ve written a few more, but 365 all had the same category in common (I’m just sayin’ …).

So I’ve proved I CAN be disciplined in my writing. I’ve also shown that I can be a complete idiot by not writing anything in total yet.

So what now indeed? I’m reading everything I can find on individual methods of New Year’s resolutions to expand my knowledge base of ideas. Or is it ideas base of knowledge?

Either way it sounds kind of wanky.

All I need to do is simply figure out what I want to do this year.

I know that includes writing, travelling and acting. Maybe coaching in the right conditions. I don’t want to keep doing anything the same way forever, which is what was happening.

Then find a way to get my health to agree to it all.

My first big achievement will be getting on that plane to L.A. (via two days in Fiji) come January 27th.

That in itself will be as huge an accomplishment as writing every day this last year was.

I think I just need to take a deep breath, pat myself on the back for being disciplined, and do a lot more thinking.

I’m just sayin’ …

Day 313 Hand Me a Fork

Posted by themirrenlee on 11/11/2012

One big thing that’s come out of having a chronic condition is that I know my own body better than Kim Kardashian knows how to attract publicity!

I’ve known for 3 days that I’m building up to another sinus infection. I can feel when things aren’t quite right. Sure enough, today I started to burn a fever.

I’m usually prepared for this as my doctor gives me antibiotics to have on hand. She knows that I am more than prone to infections that spread to my asthmatic chest, and last for weeks. She also said I should take them when starting dental work.

So what did I do? Left them in Sydney! Now I have to drag myself to the clinic tomorrow (hoping I can get in) to get more. I’ll also have to see if I can – or should – keep either the physio appointment tomorrow, or the dental one on Tuesday. Such a nuisance.

Trying to plan ANYTHING lately seems like wasted effort. I know everything happens as a lesson, but the only one I think I’m being taught right now is how to stick a fork in my head.

The only answer is to take advice from Scarlett O’Hara and think about it tomorrow.

I’m just reachin’ for a fork …
