Okay, this is lazy of me but I am still not 100% back to myself (and yes, I know, I promised an update and haven’t yet but I will.)
If you’re going to Asilomar tomorrow, please let me know so I know to keep a look out for you. I’m the quiet one who’s usually in the corner near the potted plant so if I’m not looking out for folks, I can sometimes come home and never connect with people I want to me.
I’ll be there, greeting you!
I’m driving down with Danna Smith and Linda Whalen. See you there!

My Personal Challenge for April
After reading your blog I realised just how much I beat myself up about stuff.
The first question I asked myself then was why?
Taking time out sounds good to me. Taking time out for myself sounds even better.
I think I also just realised that in this life I am trying too hard. I trying for perfection and that is far too hard for anyone. Yes life especially my life has its challenges but I am adding to those with things that don’t even need to be there.
Worry about things before they even happen if in fact they do. Worry about things that have happened in my past when it is hard enough to cope with the present. The right here right now stuff. If I take away my past and not worry about the future I might just be able to cope.
Funny how 100’s pf people can tell you the same things but until you are ready to believe them yourself. To believe in yourself it is impossible to do. I have said it before I find it easier to believe in the good in other people and neglect to look for the good in myself.
So goal for me for as long as I can anyway to start trying to find something good about myself each day. Maybe in April instead of doing the poetry challenge or a Haiku challenge. It will be hard enough for me to do that.
Note to self for April find something good or positive about yourself each day. Lets see if I am up to the challenge. After all how hard can it be to find 30 good things about oneself. We will soon find out. I will anyway. Not sure if it is something I can share. I may just let you know if I succeed though.
