Writer’s Block

I’ve been wanting to write something for a while now. Sometimes, I feel I don’t have anything worthwhile to say. Experts say when you have writer’s block, the best thing to do is just write. Odd how that works. So here I am just writing whatever comes to mind- assuming something will.

I love springtime. The days are longer and warmer. We get more sun here in the Pacific Northwest in the spring than in winter, which helps elevate my mood a little. Everything seems a bit brighter and cheerier these days, even though we had snow covering the ground yesterday morning and my allergies are going nuts.

In exactly four minutes, I will be caffeine-free for 100 days (not counting the time I ate dark chocolate and my heart started to race from the moderate amount of caffeine in it.) It has been quite the journey, but one I am glad to have chosen. My mood is more stable as are my energy levels. I even jogged on my mini trampoline for thirty minutes yesterday which is something I haven’t done in months.

I have been seeing a naturopath for a couple of months. She put me on some herbal supplements to help balance my mood and lift my depression. It seems to be working for the most part; my children are grateful for that! I am not against antidepressants for those who truly need them, but I was on them many years ago and didn’t like the side effects.

I’ve been thinking a lot about thoughts (see what I did there?) Researchers say we have an average of 6,200 thoughts per day. Isn’t it strange that you can literally think about what you’re thinking about? You can be having a thought and then analyze the thought while you’re thinking it, so crazy! The mind is a curious and wonderful thing.

Lately I’ve been feeling kind of stuck in a rut. I think it’s because I don’t really have any goals that I’m working toward. After I get done writing- whatever this post is- I’m going to sit down and write a five-year-plan. I know it’s important to have dreams and aspirations for the future; but I also know that the Lord’s purpose will prevail, and I’m completely okay with that.

This concludes my ramble session for today. Thanks for bearing with me and have a great week! God bless.
