Pottering around in the garden day, doing tidying up chores. It's a crisp, bright, gorgeous autumn day, with a brisk breeze and a blue, blue sky. I'm feeling positive today, despite setbacks on the work front. The economic downturn has now affected my biggest client, so this winter I am going to be looking for a new direction for work. I'll be asking myself many questions about what I really want out of my life, and where I want to be, and what I want to be doing. :)
Good eating continues. Still keeping the food diary, and am now trusting myself to keep my portions reasonable. Not yet registering on my bathroom scales, but a visit to the doctor is scheduled this coming week, so I will get myself weighed there.
The last few weeks I have been learning to bake bread and that has given me much quiet satisfaction and joy in my efforts. I've also noticed that my energy levels are up, I am pottering around and digging into long forgotten nooks and crannies of my house, and generally being much more active. I have all this amazing stuff, and now it is all in the forefront of my brain perhaps I will actually use some of it! My prescription for myself is to spend less time on the computer and in books, and more time doing active stuff, like gardening, house beautifying, painting, drawing, being creative with materials and going on walks. Feeding my creative soul. :)
It's really good to feel okay finally. I know this may only be a small blip up and maybe I might have more days of feeling dire ahead, but for now I'm quietly happy and it feels great.
