One Month

It has been 31 days since my last post.  I am reeling from this discovery.  I won’t make excuses, but I will try to explain briefly.  You see, I created this blog with a purpose: to reclaim my smile.

It worked.

In less than one year, I quit the job that threatened my well-being.  I set up goals and met them.  I started reading again.  I started writing again (here!).  I won NaNoWriMo.  I participated (read: walked) in a 5K to benefit breast cancer research.  I put myself out there.

On a larger level, I developed respect and caring for myself.  I have adventures.  I relax.  I sleep at night.  I stay hydrated.  I eat three times daily and exercise regularly.  I save money, but value time.  I smile.

I’m really quite happy now.

***Thank you, blogging.  Thank you, WordPress.  Thank you, readers.***

I’m in the process of evaluating where to go from here.  I still strive for constant improvement.  I still knock off annual bucket list ambitions.  Those are “smile scavenger” worthy topics.  But for now, I think I’ll focus on my creative writing blog.  Perhaps we’ll meet again…
