Next Steps
[First entered without any correction October 2014]

My daughter wanting a bike after 3 years of avoiding bike use is a strong signal to me that some good is coming from the move. At the very least, it is a shift in attitude, in which she is reclaiming one of the things I know she really likes to do. It is a bit of clarity about depression and how that condition can rob you of who you truly are for a while.

I am happy that I am in a position to get her the bike and accessories she needs. My writing is slowly coming back into focus as well, and that is probably a sign too.

I went for about 5 months without writing in the blog, and I can see that the change in schedule and location has had a big impact on my comfort (having a creative time and space). Now I agree to pat myself on the back for writing every two weeks.

I made a written list this morning. I was awake before the sun was up, and my mind was already planning more than Wonder Woman and the entire Justice League might accomplish in a day. So I wrote out every task that came to mind. I placed a box beside it if I thought it had priority for the day and could be checked off. this is the clarity I need for being mindful of my next steps.
