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.
