My final reflection for February 2014 is late because I’ve been having a really hard time writing it. I’m not even sure what draft I’m up to. Let’s just say the number is high. The problem is that I feel like I have a lot to say. As soon as I get halfway through saying it, however, I begin to suspect that what I’m saying is better suited to its own topical essay than a monthly reflection.
Basically, my thoughts are a mess.
So I figured that, rather than banging my head repeatedly against this particular wall, trying to write a reflection that just won’t come out right, I’d give you the highlights instead. They are as follows:
1. I spent most of February getting settled in, including buying furniture and décor to make our new home as comfortable as possible.
2. I decided to take this whole “life change” thing seriously so I, along with my hubby, am changing pretty much everything, including our bank and our car. I even decided to grow out my hair for the first time in 20 years! We’ll see what else is in store from here.
3. Toward the end of February, I started to get out to do more things and meet people. So far, I’ve been on some great hikes and have met some really nice people.
4. I’ve been feeling disappointed in myself over two issues. The first: not doing as well on a job interview as I could have (although I am still, in theory, in the running for the position). The second: not making any progress in self-publishing.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, it’s point #4 that gave me fits every time I tried to write this reflection. I’m considering writing one (or two) essays about it later this month.
That's my February 2014 in a tiny little nutshell. If you're stopping by to read, why don't you tell me how February went for you?
