Figuring things out

For the past month or so I've been home every day. That means not going to work. That's a big reason for that dry period I was in. It's been tough to figure out a routine. I do still go to therapy twice a week and the other days are on me to work out at home, which I do. But when I'm done the appeal is there to just waatch tv and relax. I mean c'mon Oprah's on at nine. :-) I admit it I'm an Oprah junkie, I'll hand over my man card for that confession. So, I'm starting to get into a routine of sitting in my home office and read or write or something constructive everyday. Today I did a puzzle challenge online to help my brain stay sharp or get sharp, depending on who you ask. The days of sitting in front of the tv weren't helping my waistline either. Although we have only healthy foods in the apartment eating too much of anything will fatten you up. I had lost a good amount of weight this year, but I've added some back on recently so we're being careful in that area too. I believe that dry season was God sent. For one, I'm so hard on myself all the time that I needed a break. Plus, I've been able to figure what's most important and get things in order. Sometimes we are so bent on staying busy that just because we're busy doesn't mean we're productive. I plan on being productive during this new season.

Getting there

Well, I'm not setting the world on fire, but I'm slowly getting my feet back on solid ground. I knew how I was feeling, unmotivated, wasn't something I was used to and somewhere I would stay forever. I just wasn't sure how or when I'd shake that funk. A few emails and comments with encouragements were good enough for me to slowly start doing something about it. Here's a step in the right direction, another post this week. :)

I finished my first month back at therapy this week, here's the update. I'm back using my "Forrest Gump" leg braces. Between the parallel bars I take a few steps forward and a few steps back. Which I've never done that in therapy before, but I've done really good with that. I've gotten stronger all around physically, I'm able to stand a little longer and better each time. Looking forward to getting back next week already.

Dry

Have you ever gone thrugh a dry period in life? You're not motivated, things that came easily to you are so difficult now. That's where I'm at right now. Sure I'm going to therapy and working out daily, but outside of that it's been hard to get motivated for anything else. I'm sure you could tell, I don't blog as much anymore. I barely feel the pressure to finish writing my book, let alone read a book. Write about what you know, well this is what I know, I'm in barren land right now. My church is in a season of GO right now and my pastor has been saying in his blog. ASK. Ask God, so I'm asking God to till my ground and plant some freshness in me right now.

Finally an update!

It's been a few weeks, I'm still here. I've wanted to update numerous times, but just couldn't find the motivation to do so. Tonight I got the motivation, Emily's mom told me to update my blog. It made me realize that people do read my blog and I can't slack. I know I hate when I check other blog's out daily and they're not updated regularly. So, I apologize.

Here's what I've been up to. I've been going to therapy for the past 2weeks. I've started going back to the center I was going to last year. I've already seen improvements and can't wait to see what's aead. I have realized during this whole process that it's great to look forward, but don't get so focused on what will be that you lose sight of what is now. This way it'll help me see the small progress I make daily. Ok, I also will be starting an MS medication Tuesday. Please throw up a prayer that there will be no negative side effects and that things will start to get better.
