I know myself. I work hard and I play hard. With that I know that when I get to my weekend I rest and read and my new thing is listening to podcasts. I can recommend Serial; Death, Sex and Money; Welcome to Night Vale; True Murder and Stop Podcasting Yourself. But I digress…
A friend recently gave me some good advice, she credits her husband for this gem and it is very simple: ‘what have you done for you today?’ It is an excellent question to pose.
The older I get the more I realise I need to look after myself in order to be of any use to my students, my husband, my parents and my friends; or anyone else I come into contact with.
I wanted to write more and I needed a goal.
I’ve been reading a lot about 365 day challenges and I know I won’t be able to publish a blog post every single day. Not with the hours I am currently working. So, I’ve decided to do one a week for 52 weeks instead. That seems like a lot, considering I have been on the site since December and this will be my 20th post.
So, watch this space. I have 3 or 4 short story ideas in the works and will be writing about the nature of my doublethinking in the coming days and weeks.
