Wow, it’s been a year since I have basically even looked at this page. To say my life has been busy recently would be an understatement. Buttt I am getting my priorities back in line and that includes writing.
So lately, I have been super stressed. Like stressed x10. Basically, it is destroying my whole life. My skin is breaking out and I can’t sleep. I decided it is time to attack the problem and get my life back into the swing of things. A couple of months ago, I read this book called Sleep. It was very inspiring, and I did try to implement a few of the things I learned but, as time passed, my new habits slowly disappeared.
Last night, I decided I needed to make some changes in my life in order to be the kind of person I want and live the lifestyle I always dreamed about. My first step was going to be implementing a sleep routine. So last night, I put my phone away early, cleaned my room up, and remembered that writing your thoughts down before you go to bed was supposed to help clear your mind, so you can sleep better. I opened up my sleep journal and started writing. I thought I was just going to jot down a few thoughts, but words just kept pouring onto the page. I had forgotten how therapeutic writing can be.
As I was writing, I remembered my blog and the idea came to me that I should document all of my thoughts and feelings on there. So, I am back, and I am having a really good morning. I slept great last night, woke up at a decent time, got laundry done, and I have rediscovered my love for writing. I sincerely hope that I can stick with it this time as I reassess and prioritize my life.
