For the last two weeks, I have been off track. It is annoying because thought I was getting my stuff together. I got my second covid vaccination on the 3rd of February and suffered flu-like symptoms. I slept for like 3 days, I was seriously fatigued and I was thirsty. I drank a lot of water, ginger ale, and Gatorade. It was a different kind of sick than when I had covid in 2020. By February 6th I thought I was good enough to continue with my life and make this blog/website an interesting place. Unfortunately, I was wrong, as a result, there was no Monday post on February 7th. I apologize for that because it has been a goal for me, to be consistent. I miss Wednesday’s post all the time but I feel bad when I miss Mondays. It is like I am breaking a promise. Despite circumstances that might be the reason.
I’ve been watching Youtube videos on burnout. It seems like the new term for the writing world but it has existed for some time. It feels more universal because the condition is happening in many professional fields since 2020. It is quite possible it was a thing before that we weren’t acknowledging it because of the hustle culture we had established. I have some more things I want to say about this issue but I am not quite ready. So stick a pin in this and maybe I will come back to it in another post. I have written a few short essays on the benefits of health and wellness in the past on another blog. I may repost what I have written with revisions or post something new.
This will hit on Valentine’s Day. I don’t have a traditional valentine person. I don’t think I have ever had a boyfriend during this time of the year. It is a strange thing when you think about it. However, over the years I have come to terms with being single. I also wish we could celebrate other kinds of love along with the love we generally associate with Valentine’s Day. I read an article that spoke about seven kinds of love and the seven distinct Greek words that described them. It would be great if we can bring those terms back into general use. The actions themselves have not gone away just the terms we used for them all fall under the umbrella of the world love. This also feels like something that should be discussed in detail in another post.
This week the writing goals are the same, 8,000 words by the end of the week. I have started to read and listen to paranormal urban fantasy stories. Many of the series started in the early 2000s. I don’t know why I didn’t find these series then but I’m kind of glad I found them now.
In conclusion, I hope everyone’s week is great. Don’t miss an opportunity to be kind.
