Distractions Must End

As I sit here and sip my morning coffee, I confirm to myself that I need an attitude change. No, it’s not that I’ve been in a sour mood per-se, but I have been allowing myself to get distracted. I’ve been distracted from writing on the blog. Distracted from working on specific writing projects and just generally distracted. Going back to the blog, I’ve even been a bit distracted from working on other things around the blog; like picking out my new color scheme and potentially all together new layout. I am still going to be messing around with that in the near future. I have so many ideas for the blog, but again… I’ve unfortunately let myself be distracted by other things going around me and more specifically this ankle business.

I can happily say that I’ve noticed the swelling is coming down and the pain is not as frequent. I am hopeful and doing my very best to remain positive. I think I’m just a little too fearful for my own good, that no matter how better my ankle feels when I go back to see the ankle specialist I’ll be told I have to look into surgery options. I pray that is not the case, but time will tell. In the meantime though, I know I need to kick my own butt right out of this slight funk and get myself back on track with my blog and writing once again!

Okay, so moving on I am happy to share (in case some missed it from my Facebook post), that I got my domain name back! This is thanks to donations I received for the blog that I am so grateful and appreciative to those of you who pitched in. I am just delighted to be able to have, say and use janeridgewood.net all over again! I have so many plans for the blog and I am definitely going to be pushing myself to not let my worries distract me further so I may put all these plans into effect!
