But I know I feel better and more in control when I write regularly and when I reflect on the important events in my life, so that is good enough for me. I have also been wondering about what to do for Lent. I try to do things, rather than give things up. But I know that when I drink wine, I waste my time in the evenings. This article really hit a nerve with me. For me, drinking wine too much numbs the edge of my busy life and my stress, but doesn't actually help me act or get things done. I have also realised that what is important to me is reading and writing.
So for lent, I shall be:
* giving up the wine (except for on Sundays, which is allowed in lent!)
* blogging once a day
* writing my nanowrimo novel once a day (however little)
* reading more
Let's see how it goes!
