Sunday SunDaze

I'm so shocked that I've made it this far with my 300/500 word-a-day challenge to myself. It proves the old cliché that says when you put your mind to it, you can do whatever you want. Although this post comes really late in the evening, I'm happy to still be getting some words in.

The day has been so hectic, and I'm feeling a little bit of writer's block again. So I'm going down the route of talking about the mental workout my brain has been getting recently.

My mind has been so full with thoughts and ideas of how to improve my life and the lives of my family members. Every waking moment, if not spent reading, has been used to calculate this, estimate that, or run through the various what-if scenarios. Even in the reading I do, I find ways to relate it to people I care about and think about. I have been weighing option after option against scenario against the pros and cons of anything and everything that could be from the cause and effect of this and that.

It’s tiring to do this all-day long. It’s strange to think that a lot of this thought processing wouldn’t even have the ability to occur had I been fully employed. Or rather, it might happen but much more drawn out over time and probably only late at night after a long workday, chores, eating, and other household administrative things. Maybe that’s why historically all my ideas took so long to come to fruition. I should be thankful to have this time to think, and I am.

Sundays are usually a time to rest and prepare for the week ahead, but it felt like today was just a blur. I have a busy week ahead. It includes helping my mom, my mother-in-law, and my wife with various appointments. I need to pick up my 3rd box of organics from the CSA program that I’ve been writing about. I have a potential business meeting regarding an investment I am making. And then my cousin’s wedding rounds out the week of excitement.

I look forward to being able to continue writing this week. Hopefully I have more interesting topics to cover and enlightening / insightful discussions take place throughout the week.

To all my readers out there… have a great week! (391)
