For what it's worth, I have been busy helping others. I've been driving for Meals on Wheels and helping with our church fair, which helps earn money for the missions and outreach work our church does and I have to say that helping others is a great way to get your mind off of your own troubles. As such, I've been less concerned with how much I weigh, how I look and what others think of me. It's incredibly liberating.
On the other hand...being so busy has meant less time for my writing, another fact that causes me to chastise myself at times. I want to be a writer, I want to publish more (I haven't had anything published in more than three years!) but I haven't been writing and submitting. I'm fighting the urge to take out that bat and beat myself up. I haven't used that bat in a while...now where did I leave it??
Ok. I'll leave the bat wherever it is at the moment, but I'm doing my best to write, blog, chauffeur, cook, clean, etc. You know how it goes. And anyone who may be reading this who has any words of wisdom or suggestion is invited to share them here. I need all the help I can get!!
