Refocused & Ready

fd140716forestThis is my first check in since we started Round 3 about two weeks ago. I’ve been taking some time to get refocused, and to put my “keep it simple” plans into play.

I had to wait about a week for my new laptop – and it turns out it’s my old laptop, refurbished and good as new! I was pleasantly surprised when our computer guy said that my trusty Dell was still a good machine and just needed some work. I have it back now and I’m very happy with it. I did, as per one of my goals, re-organize the filing system on the laptop. Now my documents, pictures, and other things are much easier to access. The new filing system and the faster performance make sitting down to work on the laptop a breeze rather than a frustration. I’m so thankful to have my main writing tool upgraded!

Blogging is back on track as of this week. I posted 3 times on my Starcat’s Corner blog, and I have two guest posts in the works. I now have an ongoing list of topics for blogging, which is a huge help. I’m also halfway through reading Blog to Win Business: How to Enchant Readers and Woo Customers by Henneke Duistermaat. The title sounds a bit overly commercial, but I feel that many of the techniques will be helpful.

My spiritual practices are going well, and my focus on health too. I’ve had some new insights thanks to dreams and some thought-provoking reading. It’s all connected to my life as a whole, so it impacts my creative work too. I’m more open to the daily flow of life, and I’m seeing the bigger picture as well. That may sound rather vague, but it’s all still percolating. I’m sure I’ll write more as the insights continue to flow.

This coming week I hope to focus more on my editing and writing projects. See you on Wednesday for the next check-in!

  1. Hooray for successes both big and small! As someone who recently replaced her laptop completely, it sounds like such a godsend to just get the old machine back but better. The book sounds interesting; I’ll keep an eye out for any of your thoughts on it. Keep it up, especially on going with the flow of things. It’s a simple thing on paper, but can be strangely difficult to actually do!

  2. Hooray for the return of the laptop (I can’t count the number of times I’ve helped people realize their old machines were really “okay”… past fingers and toes at least; often the repair is really cheap and involves updating drivers and removing old programs that never uninstalled themselves correctly).

    And you’re right, Nikki, it does sound like a commercial name, but then, people who do well at business often do well because their methods work….
