Sure, my writing has been minimal, but that seems to happen when I'm thriving in other areas of my life. I tend to find new things to get excited about (often) and I plunge into them.
Right now, I'm very interested in animals. (Although I always have been.) I lovingly blame the current "knowledge obsession" on my job at the doggie daycare/groomery, and my own pets -- my two fish and my two cats. I've been reading about them and learning about them, and it's been so fun. I want to be a lifelong learner, and this is just another way for me to keep that up.
I've been reading more. Biographies have always been my first choice, and I've been learning about an array of interesting people this winter -- from Prince to Wanda Jackson to Barack Obama.
My work life is thriving and I can honestly say that I'm proud of what I'm doing and what I'm accomplishing. That feels great.
I was dreading the winter blues this year. I tend to get nervous right after Christmastime each year. While there have been those darker days, overall, I've been good.
I've been busy, so I don't have much time to get stuck in my head. I painted my living room, got some pet fish, and I'm still brainstorming my Little Free Library for the spring. There's so much to look forward to this year, so I'd like to think I'm in a pretty good spot right now, and I'm going to continue to make sure it stays that way. That's all we can do, right?
