Thank you for the comments and emails on my previous post. You really do help me with your intuitive words of wisdom and practical common sense. I have noticed that since I have opened up more and showed a somewhat 'bleaker' side to my personality (this year in particular) my blog is not as popular as it once was. I surprise myself by not being too bothered about this. I don't mean this in an uncaring way. If people want to only read blogs that show the varnished side of life then that is fine, but I need to express the tarnished side too. I guess the quest for 'my heart's desire' in my previous post will be found by being authentic in all I do and by not pretending that all is fine when it really isn't.
Whilst I have been pondering this week, it occurred to me that I have never been one for forward planning. I usually only plan a few days ahead at the most. The trouble with this is that I never have anything to look forward to. This must change! I am going to pencil some things to do in my diary so that I have a metaphorical carrot dangling to get me through the months. I was thinking of things such as a visit to an art gallery or a farmer's market or a craft workshop etc. Do you have any more suggestions for me to fill my diary? If so, I would love to hear what you come up with.
