I’ve felt the heavens shift today. I think I’m going to be ok. I’ve painted my blues away. When the going gets tough, I fake it and keep going. What else can I do? Pout, stay in bed, cry, give up? I did none of those. I kept my daily schedule. I ate lots of chocolate chip cookies and some ice cream. I said no to exercise classes and swimming. I didn’t shower yesterday. I haven’t yet today. I don’t smell, not sweating much. It’s winter. I read. I painted and painted on my little index cards with watercolours. I’m working ahead on my 365 Somethings 2018 project. That’s what I do with my excessive energy. Now I’m feeling almost like an artist. I am an artist!

Suprisingly, I don’t feel any fatter. Not any slimmer either. I guess I have Sheba to thank. She still dragged me out for walks, like it or not. When I look around the house, it is not any messier than its usual state. Astounding! I must be doing something right, sticking to my good habits. They have stuck with me through thick and thin. I’m ecstatic. I’m in heaven. I could dance without music.

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.

  1. I’m glad you got to do some things you enjoy and eat what you pleased. I only got to read for half an hour. I still haven’t gotten around to finishing a long overdue post I’m trying to write. It will be a long night. I’ve stalled too long on this and another, and although I’ve been sick for two days, I think I’m about normal again. Wish my list of things I have to do that I won’t want to do (sales tax form, etc) weren’t so long.

      Oh, I hope you are feeling better, Barb. It’s a bad flu season. I wish for things I don’t have to do, too – like income tax season coming up. I do my pleasure read with my tea when I get up. I’m reading Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller. It’s quite captivating, hard to put down. I’m trying not to read ahead to the ending which I tend to do. 🙂
