I decided not to delve into my sinus problems publicly, because I don't want illness to be the first thing you think of when you remember ol' Sherri Blossoms. I want you to remember the good energy, so that's what I will focus on. I will say that yesterday was a bad day and today has the potential to be bad, so I will likely be off-line much of the day in order to preserve my eyes.

Despite the intense pain centered between my eyes and radiating over my right eye, I dragged myself up to my writing space in the shed loft. I decided a couple of days ago that I would go up no matter what, even if just to sit and stare at the wall. When I first got up there last night that's exactly what I did, but then I did a meditative visualization meant to activate the chakras, found here. The visualization relaxed my brow enough so that I had about 20 good minutes to work. I would not have done this exercise downstairs, nor would I have had my document open downstairs, so I'm glad I went up. I got a couple of pages edited and made notes for my next session.

I'm tired of life getting in the way of writing. I've been giving it up too easily. DH in a bad mood? New movie from Netflix? Migraine? Kids want me to play? All excuses I've used, along with many others. So to answer Mapelba's last question honestly, I haven't been giving up much of anything for writing lately. I'm ready to change that. It's not a fruitless exercise. It fulfills me. Maybe it's pointless to make a habit of going upstairs in the evening when it will all change when school starts in nine days (yes, I'm counting down), but I don't think so. The commitment will carry over to my new schedule.

Headache aside, lately life has felt generally peaceful, happy, and easy. It's a great feeling, and I want to share it, so here's some ~GOOD ENERGY~ coming your way. :)

  1. Thanks for the positive energy - I'm fighting a tooth-related headache at work right now and am struggling to get through my normal Monday morning 'to do' list.

    I'm glad you're making more time in your life for your writing - treat it as a job and it will BECOME an income generator for you :) I'm trying to persuade Ben to do the same thing. He procrastinated on writing yesterday - first it was, "after lunch" and then it was "when this movie's over" and then it was "after I beat this level of Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii." Any suggestions for how to push him in that direction?


  2. If he wants to, he will. If he doesn't, he won't. All you can do is call him a lazy-ass procrastinator and ask him what he's so afraid of, and the rest is in his hands. ;)

  3. I'll let you know how that goes. Mind if I tell him that I'm quoting you word-for-word? ;)

  4. Hey, I could use some good energy! And maybe that's how I managed to get the dishes done AND laundry too today, so thank you. :)

    Seriously, I'm sorry about your headaches. No, it's not the 1st thing I think of when I think of you. I think laughter when I think of you. :D So I will try to send giggles your way, and smiles, and the joy of writing - because that's not just what you do but who you are. And I love you. :)
