Hi, guys. How are you?
I’m fine but I had been piling post drafts without posting anything new since… well, since forever. During this period of writing negligence, I’ve been busy having a day job and telling myself that I didn’t have any time left to write. That was a lie. And a blatant one.
I was simply embittered by the notion that to have some pocket money I had to find a regular day job. So, since writing, and blogging were reminders of my inability to make a profit out of my creativity, I stopped writing and abandoned my blog. The notion still hurts a little but I’m making progress. For instance, I’m here.
During this period, I persisted with physical training and I had an on/off relationship with meditation. Currently, I ignore the email from Headspace while I’m becoming a fangirl of this other guy, Marcus Aurelius. I’m sure you’ve heard about him.
I’m still building my personal morning ritual. Will I introduce again cold showers? Mm… my recurrent sinusitis tells me don’t you dare! But I am open to other sorts of self-discipline. It has to be something less punitive on my frontal sinus cavities, though.
More or less, I reprised reading fiction, which I take as a sign of a more positive approach towards humanity, in general, and the part of it who call themselves narrators, specifically.
After my last possessions purge, I pulled the brakes on minimalism. Why?
- Reason 1: I mistakenly donated to the charity a book I cherished.
- Reason 2: I’m not the kind of woman who can survive an entire winter with a single coat. And, as you all know: winter is coming.
I have ideas about new post series.
Have a great day.
