Today was my day off from working at The Villas – so I made it a day for working on my article. I made good progress though I have about four or more hours of work on it.
The best thing is I am learning to write in a new way. Most of my writing to this point has been journaling – this is my first attempt at writing an informational article. I spent the whole day researching. Tomorrow I hope to start putting it together.
If anyone is interested in following my journey of starting a small business I added an email subscription form a little bit ago. You can also follow me on twitter and hopefully in the days to come I will start a Facebook page for the business as well. Lots of bits and pieces to put together. Basic Business Promotion
I have to share a funny thing about Buddy the cat. For the last two days he has been spending the whole day on top of the hot water heater pipes in the kitchen. A very uncomfortable seat and I couldn’t figure out why he would stay there till I realized this afternoon that those pipes are warm! Of course cats like warm places. So, I went and found an old towel and made his new spot a little more comfortable. I think he was appreciative.
After putting in a full day on the article I rewarded myself with watching one of my favorite movies, The Truman Story. It’s been a while since I watched it and I enjoyed it a lot. The first time I watched it I thought it was crazy and didn’t make any sense all through the movie but when it finally clicked what was going on – I’ve become an avid fan. I think the author of that film captured a basic thought we all have (or at least I do) in that we tend to feel the world is intensely interested in everything we do.
I remember my mom telling me as a grade school kid whenever I was sure I looked funny or didn’t have the right something or other to fit in, “That no one will even notice.” Of course I didn’t believe her. I was always sure everyone noticed everything I did wrong. How could they not? It was so obvious!
Al-Anon has helped me a lot in getting that attitude adjustment leveled out.
