I’ve been intentionally giving myself a little break from the daily posts since I am no longer attempting the daily challenge. I did, of course, manage to miss a few posts here and there in my challenge, but overall I am pretty satisfied with the result. I like having the freedom to write without the challenge, but I have come to enjoy having my space to express myself. So I’m here to spill some thoughts onto this (web)page.
I am working on my draft of my little weekend adventures as I delve into my attempt to do some more travel writing. So what am I doing writing this post instead of working on my other one? I organized my home office a bit, and I am now enjoying a less cluttered desk and listening to Hilary Hahn perform J.S. Bach’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in A Minor. I love to clean and organize…once I’m done with the process. I struggle with this, and I don’t know why. Having an organizing environment is so satisfying, and the process to achieve it isn’t even all that bad. So why am I so lazy sometimes? I think it’s just a matter of me building the habit so I can do it on autopilot.
Speaking of habits that I should build, I woke up earlier than I have in a long time. It was 5:30 am, and once I saw there was light outside, I found myself unable to go back to sleep. So I decided to head out the door for a walk around the neighborhood. It felt very nice to be outside so early in the day when the air is slightly chilly, and all is calm and quiet.
Now I will end my night with my usual habit of reading before bed. I sound like grandmother happy about completing chores, reading before bed, and looking forward to waking up early.
