For the first time in over a year, I feel I am turning the corner on the depression that has plagued me. During my lifetime, I have dealt with a number of hardships and kept right on going. I have to do that now as well. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my friends, who have been so supportive and encouraging. I did lose one of those friends to a sudden death three months ago and I will miss her always. But, I do keep in mind the encouraging words and notes she sent me. One thing she always advised was to find something each day to enjoy. Her something was drinking a good cup of coffee. I guess mine would be a great glass of iced sweet tea. Or a chocolate truffle!
As I am trying to turn the page in my life, I am re-organizing, re-prioritizing and de-cluttering. I have a full-time job so the spare time that I have is limited and I want to spend that time doing things I love. Getting my writing projects finished, more books read and enjoying down time, watching a good movie or going out with pals. I have considered what I want to do with blogging and other internet activities. What I enjoy doing online and also not letting the internet become a "time suck". I like having a blog. I plan to try out a blogging schedule on Mon, Wed and Fridays. Also Sundays for 6 Sentences and the other days, maybe book reviews. Fridays I want to feature a friend because I have found they are essential to life. Wednesday is for writing, something regarding craft, market etc. Monday is for me, just to recap my week for myself. I like Twitter because it is quick and I try to make most of my tweets/retweets informational and not personal. I can't imagine that anyone would care what I am going to cook for dinner! I don't even care myself.
In closing, try to make the most of your time and find something every day to enjoy.
