I JUST FINISHED reading postings by Brenda over at Coffee Tea Books and Me and Matty at Lazy Bee Farms..... both share about taking things a little slower and enjoying whatever it is you're doing, even dishes after supper. As this resonated with me, I wanted to point the way to their posts, just in case you are feeling a little overwhelmed or in need of a refreshing stop along the way.
I've been busy with things like my monthly newsletter and homemaking chores today, but my real joy came in seeing the progress I'm making from my regular trips to the gym these past four months. Not only have I been feeling more energetic and flexible, but the unexpected bonus is that some of those 'funny little sore spots' in various places in my body are gradually disappearing. (If I'd a known that exercise would make me feel so good, I would have started years ago - LOL!)
This week I was excited to realized my body was suddenly ready to take it to a new level. So I upped the size of the weights I use, and I actually jostled myself out of my usual walking routine by adding a zip of jogging around the track. Nothing serious, but I feel I've entered a new level. And I'm loving it! Truly! So I had to share!
Which reminds me, another fun project I've been doing is researching and material gathering for the blogging/web presence workshop I'm presenting at the InScribe writers' conference this fall. When I first started blogging a couple of years ago, everything seemed like 'greek' to me, but in re-reading a couple of the same books I took out of the library back then, I see how much I've grown and developed in this genre. It doesn't feel like Greek anymore! Of course that just means I can take blogging to a whole new level too. by experimenting with more blogging tools that are available.
You know, that growth has been in part to many of you, who so generously share your ideas when you've discovered something new. That's definitely one thing I want to pass along to people who will be in my workshop -- to let them know there's a wonderful kindred connection waiting for them too when they join the world of blogging.
Mmmmmm.... when I think of it, I think I've been experiencing some of those glimpses of heaven in unexpected places. Beautiful!
