• Another 100 Days of Good Karma: Day 299 (Keeping Busy)


    Wednesday, May 6, 2015

    Run/ Walk/ Bike/ Elliptical (Today:  4.42 miles;  Running Total: 280.03 miles)

    Day 299 of *Another* 100 Days of Good Karma.

    Here I am on day 299 and I suddenly don’t know what to write about.

    Really?  Writers block hits now?

    I want to tell you how I’m moving on. Plans I’m making. I want the final days of this story to end neat and clean with all the loose ends tied up.

    Except that’s how fiction works.

    Meanwhile, in real life…

    My right breast is really sore from the expansion the other day. My skin is still peeling from radiation burns. I still get tired and need naps.

    It’s still hard to think too far into the future. I can visualize until about the end of summer. After that I get a little panicky wondering what my health will look like by Christmas.

    I’m still re-learning to focus for longer periods of time. After a while my brain aches and I get tired.

    Knowing this I’ve thrown all of my limited ability to concentrate at this blog.

    After Day 300 I’ll still update the blog a couple of times a week, but I’m excited to be able to move on to new projects and dedicate some of my time to learning to write fiction.

    This summer is already shaping up to be busy. That’s not a bad thing.

    I need to keep busy or I’ll go crazy.

    I’m still training for a 10k race (6.2 miles) in June.

    During today’s training run I was very aware that the air was warmer and Houston’s humidity is back with a vengeance.

    I was also aware that the breeze lifted the hair off my head.

    Y’all… *pause*.  Go back and read that again.

    I have enough hair that it lifts. off. my. head.

    Do you know how amazing it feels to say that?

    I’m dusting off my resume and trying to remember the correct answers to interview questions like “What’s your greatest flaw?” and “Why did you leave your last company?”

    Let’s see if I remember how to be professional and not talk about my boobs in every other conversation.

    So I’m keeping busy. Too busy to stop and think about what might be happening at a microscopic level in my body.

    Right now busy is very, very good.

    Today’s silver lining: BOOM! I came up with something to write anyway.

    Take that, writer’s block.

    What’s your silver lining today?  I love comments!
