For those who know I spent 6 months throwing up this year, you might understand why I’m behind. My biggest insecurity is whether I’ll ever catch up on chores, let alone writing. Physically, I’m much better–at least no nausea for the last week–but I don’t have the stamina I once did. If I continue to try to do everything, I will fail.
I can’t even stay up late anymore. So my fear of failure isn’t likely to subside unless I let some things go. “Let it go.” Like the song says. That probably includes IWSG. I haven’t been making the rounds like I should. My eyes are stinging just trying to finish this post.
I’m giving it one more month before I decide, but I suspect I’ll go back to lurking like I did a full year before joining. Then I can get a little inspiration each month but won’t feel guilty for not visiting or commenting on 12 other blogs.
If the mood hits, I’ll spend some time writing instead. Mom wants me to. She keeps asking for more stories about Frankie, the chicken I sewed up after a hawk attack, and that’s important to me. Frankie is now a mom herself, and she does her best to encourage her chicks just like Mom does for me.
That’s it. I am recovering physically from a serious health scare. That’s a real triumph, but it’s slow going. My mental recovery is slow too. I’m insecure about doing extra activities even if they’re meant to support writing. For the record, I’ve enjoyed every minute of IWSG even when I couldn’t decide what to write about. It’s a great organization with a great leader. I’m just not sure I have the energy to continue.
Now you’ve heard mine, what’s your insecurity? Better yet, what’s your latest triumph? I sure can use the inspiration.
