WORK IN PROGRESS

I think of myself as work in progress, like dough rising to the occasion as time progresses.  Some days I rise higher and faster and other times I’m a little slower, but I always show up and make my best effort.  Today I am making bread.  The dough is rising in the heat.  I am wilting a little.  Win some and lose some.  That is how life is.

Today is the second day of my being FaceBook-less.  I have deactivated.  I am friendless.  It is exhilarating the first day.  It is so freeing not to have connections.  Well 158 is not that many to most FaceBookers but it is alot to me.  A woman is rich indeed if she has that many true friends.  I am lucky that I do have a few good friends but I am no social butterfly.  I am actually surprised that I have 158 people to add!  Day two sans FaceBook is not so carefree.  I have no notifications, no gossip, no photos, no news, no uppers or downers.  I have no emails.

I have no friends and no emails.  But….I do have a life.  And so today to quiet my unease of this new situation, I restarted my quigong exercises, I sewed, I baked and I wrote.  I am working on a life of quality, not quantity.  Tomorrow I will do something new, something to break my pattern of being always in my comfort zone.  I will dig for my passions.  I will get to know myself.  I will be my own best friend.  I am a work in progress.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
