What Have You Done Lately #1

Welcome to a new feature on my blog. Once a week – don’t hold me to the day – I’m going to post a little about my life and a list of things I want to achieve – short term. Just to let you see the person behind the writing and to create a bit of accountability.

For a long while now I feel like I’ve been wandering aimlessly and haven’t gotten much done. I have figured out what I want to do and tried to get started but get very little finished. I don’t believe the time was wasted; it has been schooling. Everything happens for a reason and although there haven’t been visible results, I know more about myself and what I want and that is very valuable. One of the things I’ve learned is that I feel better about myself if I can put a pretty little tick next to an item on a to-do-list at the end of the day. That is why I’m doing this piece, so that I have to shamefully admit, out in the open that I didn’t or did accomplish what I set out – trying to end on a positive. I can’t arrive at my destination if I’m walking in place, or taking no steps at all. You’re welcome to join me with your own steps.

achievedI don’t have anything to mark off as this is the first week, but I have already done some decluttering. It feels sooooo… good.


I am motivated to do more if I feel like I’m achieving something and what better way than to tick things off a list. I’ll keep it short, otherwise I line myself up for failure and that isn’t the point of this exercise.

  •  Post at least 5 blog entries excluding this one – I’ve learned the benefit of taking a day off from my laptop.
  • Write one short story to submit – Lockdown has exiled my muse, so I’m coaxing her back slowly.
  • Decluttering – bedroom and spare room – Clutter is terrible for my energy and adversely affects my writing which is no longer acceptable – it should never have been.


Tips of my fingers reach through the keyboard to connect with your soul, to make this world a little more gentle for each of us to navigate.

Feel free to post your own list in the comments and catch up with me next week. I’ll check-in on you too.
