When I started this blog I decided to try writing every day for 30 days. I missed Sunday the 15th because I was out exploring a museum with friends and then on various virtual hangouts.
Then I delved into a new knitting project, a hat for my best friend.
This was all time well-spent I think.
In the past, my pursuit of perfection paradoxically caused me to fail (pardon my annoying alliteration). For instance, if I missed a post I developed a mental block and stopped. Or if my grammar was not perfect or the graphics were not beautiful, I would start to resent my work.
Today I have compassion for myself. Today I strive for a slow burn – a consistent stream of ideas with some margin for rest and focus on other things – instead of an explosion of energy and motivation followed by radio silence.
This evening I spent some time thinking about how my life has changed in the last year, what I have grown to care about, and, in turn, what I may want to write about. A few ideas that came to mind outside of Salesforce and nonprofit technology are:
- Spirituality and my relationship to a higher power
- Dyspraxia/neurodivergence and learning self-acceptance
- Women in country radio – why aren’t there many?
- Codependency and how it is engrained in our culture
- The importance of moderation
- Setting goals and rolling with the punches, how to balance
- Self-care is doing laundry
- Sometimes spending money is okay!
- Cognitive dissonance: tech and border patrol
- also maybe sharing some poetry?!
If any of these sound cool, do let me know and I’ll focus my attention on those topics first.
