365 Gratitude Project: Mind the Gap

November 1, 2017

Sorry for the long silence; each day I’ve intended to take up the pen, or rather the keyboard, again , but I made it almost half the year before completely losing momentum. There are a few entries partially complete in draft form, but I grew anxious each time I reviewed them and as the weeks and months passed it became more and more difficult to face the growing number of empty entries.

It’s been a difficult summer filled with both highs and lows, big changes and fewer hours for myself –  it’s taken all my energy just to keep going each day without allowing myself to slide into depression or to allow those around me to see or be affected by my struggle. I’ve fallen back into my pattern of trying to help or be supportive of those around me without taking care of myself – though my physical health has shown improvement of late.

I’m going to table the project for now, maybe pick it back up next year. In the meantime, I’ll be documenting my progress as I defend my title in the 2nd Annual Great Admissions Reading Challenge.

Thank you all for your comments, your time and for allowing me to share my story with you.
