This whole blog phenomena is still pretty new to me so I called this blogging/website expert (a friend of a former colleague) to see if she could help. She was nice enough in a drill-sergeant “you can’t handle the truth” kinda way.
And her truth was that I should be blogging daily and that was the single biggest favor I could do for myself. Really? Because my therapist told me loving myself was the single biggest favor I could do for myself. And my hairdresser claims that getting my hair colored every EIGHT weeks is the single biggest favor I could do for myself. And the Evil One tells me that working out three times a week until my eyes bleed is the single biggest favor I can do for myself. Me? I believe a glass of wine everyday around six is the biggest favor I can do for myself. So in the spirit of Charla – I do nothing. (Not even the wine part). I am completely paralyzed by the idea of blogging daily that I don’t blog for three weeks straight (I’m hoping my dozen fans noticed my panicked sabbatical). In the meantime, I wonder what I am capable of doing daily. Well, I eat every day, I sleep every day, I drink three Diet Cokes every day, I call someone I love to chat every day. I email every day. I used to have “you know what” with my husband every day. I brush my teeth every day. I shower (but don’t wash my hair) every day. I take in the mail every day. I try to love my kids every day. Ugh, surely that’s enough?
