Hello! And welcome to Week 4 of Contemplation.
Thanks again to Desley from musings of a frequent flying scientist, for starting the Contemplation series. Each week Desley chooses a prompt from her Kikki.K A Sentence a Day Journal and invites us to share our response. Here are my posts from Week one + two + three.
This week’s prompt: Name one thing you should do more often.
There’s always something that I wish I could do more often for example,
Relax because stress no matter how big or a small a problem is never healthy but has in the last few months become my middle name. I’m working on changing this but as usual I wanted results yesterday.
Read because I have fond memories of growing up, spending my time escaping into books and how happy it made me. I miss that feeling!
Write because one day (soon) I want to finish writing a book. But that will never happen unless I actually start writing something.
Exercise mainly because I am tired of hearing myself complain about the way I look. For the last 5 years I have been trying to reach a ‘’magic’’ goal weight and although I got super close to it a few years ago, I haven’t managed to get anywhere near it again.
HOWEVER in keeping with the prompt, if I had to choose one it would probably be Reading. I truly believe that the more you read the more your vocabulary and imagination improves and hopefully motivates you to make a start on your own (if that’s what you want to do).
I must admit that this year reading kind of took a back seat, until Sunday when I was off to the St Patricks Day parade (photos to come). Getting there is a bit of a journey, but it did give me the perfect opportunity to get reading.
Current book: The Girl on The Train. I’m only halfway through but it’s a page turner which I wasn’t expecting. I love when a book surprises me in that way. I hope to be able to write something as compelling one day, which proves my earlier point that reading can sometimes help motivate you to make progress on your own story.
