Every evening I write down ten things that defined my day. I try to capture the good and the bad, things that I am grateful for, things that I am looking forward to, and what I do that day just for me, I really just write the little details that made that day different from others. I enjoy it and it works for me. Here’s some things pulled from various days over the past week:

  1. This was a tough week for me- I was very blase about writing- lots on my mind
  2. Does anyone deserve to be ghosted?
  3. Got into a stupid fight with my husband, and honestly I think he picked a fight about A, because he didn’t want to discuss B. Sometimes it’s hard to process our feelings/emotions
  4. I overbooked myself this week, for the first time in three years, and I need to start blocking off time to make sure I’m not running on fumes
  5. Allergies (the downside of spring)
  6. My new friends from writing group are awesome
  7. One of my writing friends was quoted in Time Out NY. I was oddly thrilled to think that I know that person!!
  8. I had a really great week with my daughter
  9. My daughter and I bingewatched a really stupid reality dating show and I just kept shaking my head
  10. There is some really awesome theater out right now

    1. I would tack on to Wynne’s comment that #8 is probably related to the ones she mentioned. Although you were doing wonderful things with your daughter, you were out of your normal routine. That in itself is stressful, and then pile on the wonderful, glorious time change which messes with our rhythms. In my old age, I have to wonder why the government thinks they should control time and why we let them. I guess control is the operative word.

  1. I love that quote, and, as always, your transparency and authenticity. When we can be who we truly are, free from constraints, regardless of those that don’t get us, self expression thrives, as do we. Excellent post, LA.

  2. Feeling stressed is no fun. I’m right there with you right now. A few weeks back, I saw a poem in the Times Magazine by someone I used to know here in Durango. That was cool! Very happy for her. I love my critique group (4 of us, twice a month on Zoom). I hope we can meet in person someday.

  3. That’s very diligent of you! Good idea to record the bright spots though. One can’t always remember them when they’re gone. Afterthought…I used to record my partner’s tantrums and follow up sulks. Mainly so I could point to the diary and say, do you realise you’ve been in a snit for 17 days on average per month?

  4. Some weeks are more challenging than others. I’m having a tough week and I’m struggling with what to write about because I’m so frustrated. So do you just throw someone under the bus or write about what you’re planting in the garden this spring? Yeah, I’m thinking tomatoes. Hugs, C
