January Recap

 It’s the last day of January. January always feels like an eternity. I want to do a self check-in. 

This past month I posted daily. I have managed to post every day since November 1st. Consistency. I did some of the WordPress bloganuary daily prompts that I found interesting. I also have been doing some daily and weekly word prompts. I enjoy how everyone gets the same prompt and writes such different and beautiful things.  I entered a couple poetry contests that I found on Instagram. 

I meditated and took walks. I had a health scare, ended up with pre-diabetes, and am working on taking better care of myself.  I did hard work in therapy and have found a place of peace about my body that is welcome and long overdue. I read 12 books in January.  Everything is OK by Debbie Tung is a graphic novel I stumbled upon and felt it spoke to me about how I feel with my depression.  

This past month I went to dinner for my Mom’s birthday, had family in for a Steeler game, had an amazing Christmas party with my #RockFam, went to the Embracing Our Differences meeting after reading #bannedbook GenderQueer, and I *almost* won Liverpool, but still managed to lose. It was our first time playing in months and it felt good to hang out, spill tea, eat pizza, and play cards. I FINALLY took down Christmas on 1/27/23. 

February-I don’t know what it has in-store for me, BUT I want to keep going with the walks and meditating. I want to keep treating my body with love and kindness. I hope to be able to write enough to have a post everyday.

Not a bad month, even if it felt like a year.

Here were some basic goals I posted at the end of December. I feel like I did pretty well at taking care of myself.
