Did you ever see the Simpsons episode where Homer turns to Marge and says “No TV and no beer makes Homer something something” and she says “Go mad?” to which he replies “Don’t mind if I do” and then dances around in a crazy fashion? Well, after 6 weeks of no home phone or Internet I am feeling somewhat similar and am just so happy to be back online.
To celebrate my re-entry to the 21st century I am aiming to blog EVERY DAY for 30 days! After that I will see how I feel but I would like to get back into the habit of blogging regularly and I read somewhere (probably on a blog!) that if you want to develop a new habit you need to do it daily and ideally as part of a habit you already carry out every day. So… I check my email every day (usually about 15 times a day without even realising!) and I have decided that I will compose my daily blog every morning before I check my emails.
In this way I am being creative rather than reactive, I am staying in the flow rather than being pulled in different directions by a glut of new emails filled with shiny, happy promises of health and wealth.
