Back from the Dead (does that make me a zombie?)

Hello blogging friends. If you still exist. Which I know you do, just maybe not here.
The world, such as it is, has got me down. My birthday is coming up (in 3 months) so I decided to do 3 months of good things. And maybe also to give up that other social media thing that is not, in my opinion, GOOD.
I will try to post every day, but if not, at least every other day. And I will talk about the good things I am doing, because I will do something GOOD every day.
What do I mean by GOOD?
That makes me feel good and hopefully is also good.
I have a few goals.

  1. To connect positively with my Son, age 13. This is harder than it seems, but so far has consisted of me asking him open-ended questions and also trying to hug him (harder than it seems!). I will let him teach me a game. I'm also going to take him out for a treat drink and reading in a cafe.
  2. To do "exercise" that makes me feel good about myself rather than feel like a bag full of garbage left out in the rain.
  3. To drink less.
  4. To walk more.
  5. To volunteer. With Son? I hope.
  6. To get outside as often as possible, weather be damned!
  7. To get together with friends more often, for movies, or coffee or walks or yoga or whatever.
  8. To do yoga consistently.
  9. To meditate.
  10. To be grateful every day.

Welcome back, DW. So excited to follow the trail of your goodness. There are good things and people left in the world, and you are one of them.

I'm glad you are here. You are a force of good wherever you are.

Oh, I love this. I have been trying to imagine my way back into blogging. So (maybe) one good thing is that you will kick me into writing blog posts again. I LITERALLY cannot wait to read what you write. And I'm using "LITERALLY" in its dictionary sense.

(and one more good thing: I have Indridason for you and will soon have French.)
