Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
‘Idál (Justice), 18 Raḥmat (Mercy) 175 B.E. - Wednesday, July 11, 2018
Gratitude List for 18 Rahmat.
Today I am thankful...
...for the French lavender body wash I used in the shower this morning. The aroma was heavenly and reminded me of Grandma Mary's lavender bush.
...that, so far, I have one response from "Fantasy Newsletter (July 11, 2018)" for my edition of the August fantasy newsletter.
...that I have 1106 points in My Survey account.
...that my Bank of America checking account is not overdrawn today.
...that I have 24,850 points in my YouGov account.
I sent this comment to "Short Stories Newsletter (July 11, 2018)" : "Writing about childhood memories, especially the traumatic memories, is called writing therapy or poetic therapy. I have practiced this type of therapy for a number of years, and I know it helps me deal with bad memories. I can't say how well it would work with someone else. I can only testify how something works with me."
It's been a good day. I read three of the newsletters, wrote a poem for the 48-hour challenge, reviewed some stories, and read a article on BahaiTeachings.org, I did some surveys, and I wrote a couple of paragraphs for the spiritual newsletter I'm editing for next week. I also wasted some time playing solitaire, and this means I'll have to fight the urge to play solitaire for the rest of the week.
I sent this to "Comedy Newsletter (July 11, 2018)" : I read a book, until my eyelids are heavy and can't stay open. I turn out the light, thinking I'll get to sleep. As soon as I turn the light out, I'm wide awake. I check the time on my smartphone, open an app to read something, and can't keep my eyes open to read. I go to sleep, wake up--thinking I've slept for three or four hours--and find I've only been asleep for an hour.
