In my last blog post, I wrote that when you change something, everything changes. Often, we just want to change one thing and then are surprised by so many things changing, things we didn’t really want to change. But that’s what holds people back from changing anything.
After a brief halt to the life-changing events we’d started in motion, we’re back on track for changes. And they’ve already begun. I couldn’t spend one more afternoon in that house facing the intensity of the desert sun. It’s not my natural habitat, and I’d spent almost 10 years there. It was definitely time for a big change.
But I miss waking up in that bedroom, my morning routine of Rich going downstairs first to feed the cats and start the coffee while I stretch my back so I can get out of bed, get dressed, and join him downstairs to sip our coffee together. After morning devotions and kissing him good-bye for his morning commute, I would peek into General Hospital, play with the kitties, and then head up to my office either to work on some music in my studio, write a blog post, or write a scene for my current wip.
Around 10 am, I might take a morning break walking the neighborhood, and then return to whatever I was working on until about 11-11:30 to make lunch, watch the rest of GH, and then have my lunchtime chat with Rich. I loved this routine!
But it was isolating in that big house, and by the end of the day, I was nutty – lol! So here we are, throwing ourselves into a whirlwind of change, moving across the country, moving from a suburban house into an urban apartment, ready to get back to work and see what else I jump into – writing groups or music groups – this has yet to be seen.
It’s exciting and scary as I peek into the future and the past at the same time.
In the meantime, I noticed Raining Men got a 5-star review after its recent upload of version 2.0. Thank you. It encourages me to keep moving forward, writing stories and writing songs.
