Waning Moon
Neptune Retrograde

Sunny and cool

I bounced out of bed this morning appreciative of my life and the direction it’s taking, in spite of some of the glitches along the way. I’m very, very grateful to be doing what I love. I have goals to achieve, and even though I’m not sure how I’ll get there, I intend to turn my dreams and goals into reality.

I gave myself the day off from writing yesterday. After an over productive day like Saturday, I knew I had two choices.

The first was to turn on the computer, try to force myself to write, grow frustrated and feel like a failure.

The second was to enjoy a lovely autumnal Sunday as a reward for the previous few days’ of work and recharge my batteries.

I chose the latter.

That’s not something I would have done even a year ago. I would have tried to push beyond the exhaustion and the dry creative well and gotten angry at myself. This way, by allowing myself to recharge, I can meet my desk with a positive attitude and actually be productive today.

I’m learning. It’s taken awhile, but I’m learning.

I ran errands, read the Sunday papers, had lunch with friends in Old Greenwich, went grocery shopping, played with the cats, cooked a good meal, read a book, and put up the Halloween decorations. The apartment looks lovely and cheerful and we’re celebrating the harvest of a productive year.

This morning, I polished three of the four articles and sent them off. I need to fact check and polish the fourth, work on some more course proposals, and start work on Angel Hunt. It’s all possible.

Today, anything is possible.
