In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ready, Set, Done!.”

Okay, freewriting. I’ve always loved the concept, but I rarely do it. Yet I know some of my best poetry has come out of freewriting.

What I’ve been thinking about lately:

  • My dad and how he’s shaped my life
  • My identity
  • Stress and happiness
  • Weight. Food. Bleh.
  • Work/life balance
  • My wonderful kid
  • Relationships. Bleh.
  • How do I meet someone? Will I ever meet someone who fits with me?
  • Cancer
  • Blogging
  • Money. Bleh.
  • My job. Volunteering.
  • Progressing on the cello
  • Winter. Bleh.

I want to blog about all of these things. I will, in time. BUT some of these topics are more personal than others, and while I do want to write about them, I’m a little shy about putting myself out there.

This isn’t a very insightful post, is it? I’m not feeling very creative these days. Work stresses and tires me out, then I get home and want to do nothing. I know it’s just temporary. This too shall pass. So, focus on making it through today, making the best of today, and tomorrow do the same.
