May 2019

May 2019 marks a small but significant change in direction for little writing business. It seems that April’s clearing out had freed some time and space for other concerns. It remains to be seen whether that’s a good or bad thing.

There’s nothing to see just yet, but if it works out as I hope, there’ll be a significant difference this time next year. Though there’s still rather a lot to do to get started for the new financial year!

Beauty: body
I enjoy exercising my lean, healthy 59 kg body several times a week.
• Eat < 5g of salt and sugar per day.
• Walk 10,000 steps per day.
• Sleep 8 hours each night.
70.0 kg
70.5 kg
It’s really hard to find processed food that comes under the limits for both salt and sugar.

Not doing too well on the walking, but I’ve removed some of the fluid build up and am dropping a compression stocking size. I’m really happy about that, aside from them not having any in stock and having to wait for a pair from Europe.

Sleeping mostly good.
Beauty: presence
I have thick glossy hair that compliments my beautiful clothes.
🙂🙂Still ugly in between hair, but following a coconut oil treatment, at least it’s glossy! Got new undies.
Beauty: home
I live in a comfortable home that soothes my soul.
🙂🙂No move on the new items on the list, but plenty of snuggling up with a blankie and a doggy in front of the tv. Or with a good book.
Beauty: garden
My garden is lush and abundant, providing habitats, weather protection and a mystical threshold.
😐😐We’ve been doing some pruning and tidying, but I still haven’t found the old garden plan.
Friendship: friends
I love meeting new people, and as I am friendly and outgoing, I make friends easily.
😐🙂Been to a couple of lunches, and to see Toseland and his new wife (Katy of course).

Plus I’ve booked my tickets for the Emerging Writers’ Festival. Looking forward to that!
Friendship: creatures
My creatures are happy and healthy and find my garden a haven.
🙂🙂All good on the creature front. I saw six possums the other night. And the magpies have taken to hanging around on the deck. I love hearing them sing. Sometimes it seems like they dance too!
Friendship: contribution
I share my knowledge, time, and money with those who need it.
😐🙂Didn’t leave the house much in May, but passed on some useful information to people I knew would benefit from it.

And offered some advice about what to do first.
Pleasure: adventure
I am brave and adventurous not afraid to try new things.
😐🙂Mays’s adventure relates to work with a big trip to the State Library to look at some old manuscripts. I love touching old books that someone had to bring out from the bowels of the library. I like to imagine them coming out on a silver tray, but I expect it’s a bit more prosaic.
Pleasure: recharge
I work hard and have the right to rest and recharge.
• Turn the computer off by 7 pm.
• Read 78 books in 2019.
🙂🙂This month’s books include; Princes Gate, The Rabbits, Lucky Bitch, Outer Order Inner Calm, and So Good They Can’t Ignore You. I’ll be trying for more fiction in June.
Wisdom: growth
I learn and grow every day.
• Visit a historically or culturally significant venue or event each month.
🙂🙂May 2019 has been more about choosing than growing. But now and again, you need to sit back and let it sink in, don’t you?

Like controlling your life, or family values.

Though I heard about the Libro de los Epítomes and got a little more interested in keeping books.

My May 2019 productivity journal tells me I spent a lot of time slowing my ship so I could turn it around in time for a new start for the new financial year. My stickers run the full gamut of emotions, and I’ve recorded the intention to be nicer to myself about not always meeting my ambitious goals 🙂

So what was your May like?
