Good evening! I don’t have much time, because I am sleepy, it’s late, and I want to read a little bit more of the Patricia Cornwell book that is on my nightstand, since it has to go back to the library on Saturday. But I did want to continue my thought process from last night.
To start us off, this is for the kind words about me, my blog, and our friendship.
Also, let me clear up a couple of points from last night. I’m not concerned about my blog’s identity in the blog world. It’s my blog, I say what I need to say, I love that there are some people out there who dig it, and our bloggy friendship means a lot.
My blog doesn’t lack identity or purpose. I consider this a “healthy living” blog because a healthy body and a healthy mind and a healthy soul and a healthy family are inextricably intertwined. My issue with my blog right now is that it isn’t serving its purpose. (poor blog, it’s not your fault, it’s mine!) My blog is called “Merf In Progress” because I want to make sure my life is always progressing — that I enjoy life, that I raise amazing children, that I nurture my marriage, that I’m healthy, that my family is healthy. I want to make sure my blog focuses on that above all — is my life progressing? Am I stuck?
Right now, I feel like I am treading water. I look at myself, my daily routine, my home, and I feel like I’m making no progress. Every time I walk down the hall, I see the messy piles of junk, the unfiled papers, the photos that need framing, the pictures that need hanging. But for some reason, I don’t organize, file, frame, and hang. I just notice them, let them bother me, and move on.
One thing I know is that there is no point complaining about things and taking no action.
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.
That’s enough for one night. Stay tuned for the continuation of this stream of consciousness. xo
