Getting Back to Here

Hello. I've been gone a while from my blog. I'm back. We'll see if any words are back with me.

Yesterday I came up with what I want to do in my life. Oh yeah, that. Well, here goes:

An introspective human writer who helps children and everyone.

Hmm. Interesting. How exactly does that look? I'm not sure. And I didn't necessarily mean that my writing will help people. It might. It involves wanting to help people, somehow. I guess I'm still working on it but it's nice to have something written down.

I cleaned out my pantry today. It was good to get that done. Sadly food did get thrown out but I also learned what we have and I got things organized quite well. I found out that I overestimated our cracker-eating capacity a great deal in the past. There were many, many crackers of unknown purchase dates. Most are now gone. But I recycled boxes so it wasn't a total waste. Close though.

I've been overwhelmed when I look at book lists lately because I am interested in so many books. I haven't been reading that much but I'm always reading at least one book. I have a passion for books.

Eating better has long been a concept that sounded like a good idea. I've started to do it. I did feel pretty good today.

Another change in my life, and one that is perhaps enabling me to make other positive changes, is that I started trying to remove the word "should" from my head. I'm 44. I can do what I want. If I want to eat better, I will. If I want to clean my kitchen because I will like the end result and perhaps even the process, I can. No one needs to say anymore, including me, what I "should" do.

Well, these are some of the things going on for me right now. It's nice to write again. I was feeling a little shy or something before I began this post tonight. But I'm glad that I wrote anyways.

I hope that everyone is doing o.k. and being kind to themselves. I'm not telling you what you should do, however. That's up to you.
