About half a month late.
I got the idea of doing self care chronicles from none other than Wentworth Miller’s Facebook page. (That would be where the “half a month late” comes in–I started reading these on his page at the beginning of February.)
These, like his own, are going to be small snippets of things I’ve done for myself. They will not be fully detailed blog posts of their own.
Sometimes I will link to something (or several things) I’ve found on social media, sometimes I will post what I’ve done for myself or what I think I should start doing for myself… and sometimes I will post both, particularly if what I’ve seen other people doing happens to be related with what I’m doing or trying to do.
And let us begin.
This, of course, is where I should’ve begun the chronicling.
As I’d replied to Went’s post, self-care for me usually means laying in bed with a good book or working on my writing. Sometimes it means dabbling in other creative pursuits.
This I definitely need to do…. again. And again, and yet again.
I don’t know how many times I’ve cleared off my dresser but it just seems to attract all the clutter. Especially when someone decides he needs to display his toys on the newly-cleared area.
My “puppy” trying to do everything except the trick she was asked to do, all to earn that treat.
No woods to be found hereabouts, not unless I’m willing to drive a ways for the sole purpose of finding a good place to walk, but walking up and down my road isn’t bad.
And depending on the weather I can always get some decent pictures… yes, I can even find new things to photograph in the same familiar surroundings.
Like my first-ever Instagram upload:
I think a week’s worth of belated posts is good for now.
More progress of my social media searches and my own self care to be posted later! Now back to the YouTube backlog and migrating some other travel pics over to Instagram.
