Why writing about writing?
Well I’ve been meaning to post on a blog for some time now, but instead of getting on with it I’ve just pictured loads of things I’d write about rather than actually getting down to it! I do write 3 times a week, so it’s not that I’m completely out of my comfort zone its more I’m not sure what it is I want to write about! In this case, I feel I should just write about writing. I just want to mention I’m dyslexic and I’m defiantly only telling you this as I may read something that isn’t there and post as if it is! (Invisible ink syndrome)
So what do I write about 3 times a week?
Basically myself! How life’s going and where I am on the happiness scale. I have fair few floors, as no doubt we all do. However, I’m in need of change. That’s why I’ve started to keep account of what my day to day habits are. I have a daily to do list. The three main things on this list are,
- Read my daily pledge or Affirmations – ( Read to the end to view)
- Meditate – 10 minutes is ideal however im happy to get away with a quick 5 minutes as well.
- Exercise – It can be as small as 30 press ups and sit ups, weights or Running. It’s all about the endorphins! I tend to aim to do a minimum of 10k a week. I’m unable to always keep to this. Life is busy and I have been known to get off this path I’ve invented for myself. Check my progress this far….. 157km today but I’m am intending to do around 400km by years end.
What’s the meaning of all this?
I suppose I started all this because I needed to get myself back to work, plus I needed to work out where things were continually going wrong. How much do I drink? What are my triggers? Am I even looking after myself? Is anxiety something that I can learn to control? Can I stop drinking? Basically, its been a journey so far and I’m still learning which is great. Here’s an idea of what I’ve been writing about to date.
Getting back to work after spending 3 ½ months off sick from depression/anxiety. At the same time getting off anti-depressants. To then be made redundant after returning to work.
I stopped drinking (54 days) very difficult, and I believed that I could do a year my views about drinking clearly changed when dairying here.
Got a new job and lasted 2 ½ days. Then went back on to anti-depressants then off them again, revisited the Daily To Do’s! I now will be starting a new job in September.
SO,.That’s that. Basically, I’m Writing about Writing because that’s what I’ve done since January and its helped me a hell of a lot. I’ll leave you with my daily pledge that I read aloud and believing.
Today I will stand tall with my head held high knowing I will give to the world as much as I can, I push myself to lead the way with passion and energy, I am prepared to learn as I change so will my world.
5 things to quit right now
- Trying to please everyone – There is no need to please everyone just consider
- Putting yourself down – Gravity pulls you down so you should big yourself up
- Living in the past – If you’re always looking back, then you will never be in the present which means you’re effecting your future.
- Fearing Change – To improve our lives change must happen. You’re not still crawling like a baby, are you?
- Overthinking – Is something we do when we worry. Why acknowledge worry? Why not change thoughts to positive ones?
Remember every morning with progression and a positive attitude you will succeed.
Belief is waiting for you every second of the day, just give it a chance and it will appear. – Barry2Baz 24/01/2017
