It's finally happened. After three years, I finally managed to forget my own bloghop. >_<
I remembered on Thursday and then yesterday, I had to clean out the garage (it was a public holiday in South Africa) and I was so exhausted by the end of it (huge garage... looooooooooots of stuff) that I completely forgot about literally everything I was supposed to do.
But I have to at least give a bit of an update, so here's my Update Day post anyhow. For those of you wondering what all this is about, a bunch of us have set some huge or just super important goals. On the last Friday of every month, we post updates on how we're doing. The accountability and encouragement just does wonders.

Last month, I decided to be a bit more kind to myself than I was lately, so I haven't really set much in the way of writing and money goals.
It's just hard to chase down goals (impossible, even) if you're barely able to keep going because it feels like you're drowning.
To give you an idea of where I was this past month, you can check out my previous post. It wasn't pretty.
But then you guys reminded me that sometimes, it's just necessary to step back. So I decided to go quiet. To stop pushing and prodding myself.
I picked up my needlework again because the repetition of stitch after stitch just soothes me. And good thing, because there's about 250,000 stitches to my current project.
And slowly, without me really realizing it, I started to feel better.
So for this month, I'm going to see if I can maintain what I've been managing lately, plus a few minutes of writing every day. Let's say five minutes.
Just a simple addition, to see if I can ease myself in as simply and as painfully as possible.
How are you doing?
