I've been idle for too long. Why you may ask? Because I've been busy being busy. And this busyness has taken me away from my writing.

Yes, I've published posts in response to contests and other challenges. But I've let slip my one reason I joined the blockchain..to write. To date, I've numerous drafts labeled "Part 2." When I scroll through my Drafts list in Peakd, I notice at the bottom of each the indicator that it's been over four to five months since I last visited to work on it.

Numerous offline projects and family matters have filled my thoughts these past several months. With over ten family members passing away since January of this year, our family has had it's share of grief. Some were victims of the pandemic; while others succumbed to natural causes. I know many families have dealt with this issue in 2020. To them, I send my sincere condolences.

The other issue has been my health. I was on a path to progressing extremely well. I thought I was on my way to reaching my goal. I was only a few points away from my desired A1C level the middle of last month when I caught a nasty bug. My doctor thought I may had contracted COVID-19, but I only had a severe sinus infection, together with mild bronchitis. She was extremely careful because coronavirus has some of the same symptoms.

The bottom line is my mind and body has been out of whack the past two months. This has caused my A1C numbers to elevate. This affects my blood pressure also. I'm used to both numbers rising when I fall ill, However, I'm now going to test different Diabetic and sinus medication combinations.

I've been busy trying to get well. And this is the most important of all because if I'm not well, I don't even feel like getting out of bed. But I have to because I'm helping my grandchild with online schooling this semester.

This has also affected my activity on Hive. I've been feeling sluggish and not wanting to be active and engage on Hive. My writing has suffered the most. I used to push myself even when I didn't feel well. Not any longer. New attitude. Last week though, I managed to publish three posts. This is down from posting weekly for the past few months.

I love being on Hive and engaging with everyone. So today, I decided to create a new plan of action while I was preparing dinner. On the menu for today was just a cobb salad and some fresh fruit:

20201018_134845.jpg

For my plan of action, first I decided to write about my plan to sort it out.

Next, I decided that my intended course of action to accomplish my goal is to slow down and regroup. Three to four post a week is my new routine. If I feel like it, maybe more. I've had a sense of incompleteness since the first of the year.

To hopefully solve this, I plan a return to all my previous unfinished writings and start working on them. These stories are ones I intended to provide a conclusion to but never got around to it. So look for part 2 or higher of my previous stories. I hope to be able to finish at least one per week.

Wish me luck everyone.

If you've had plans for Hive that you've placed on hold or some unfinished writings you would love to return to, let me know below.

Thanks,
@justclickindiva

Happy rest of the week everyone with whatever your endeavors.

Good Luck to you.

I didn't write a single post last week, and by commenting on multiple posts I'm burning writing time for today, also.

I don't worry about it much. I like a three post per week output for me, but if not it's OK. Sometimes it just means that I don't have anything particular to say (especially if I don't have a travel series working) or that I'm not ready to share whatever is in front of the line.

I do most of my writing in Google Drive and I have literally thousands of unfinished posts. Very few of them get revisited.

On a selfish level, I'd like to see you post more. I genuinely like your posts.

Thank you so much for your kind words. I always appreciate your input, support and encouragement. The mind and body has to be one for a post to spring forth, lol.

Half the day's gone, and I feel like going back to bed later. Can't seem to get enough rest these days. I'll get back in tune though. Have a good week ahead and please stay safe.

Hi sweet we talked about all this and we both decided change was needed. We worked about asses of and well we both know that we wanted things to change. Maybe we worked to hard hahahah the fact that the numbers are elevating is not what you were working for, so a new road map is the perfect plan. Know I love your blogs and the numbers is not important.

The teaching of the princess this semester is a beautiful gift in these trying times and the fact that you can be her teacher is special. I look forward to your writing talk to you later

Thank you so much for your continued support and encouragement. Yes, we do work hard, but as you always say in your posts, "just don't be busy." I'm going to make it count towards meaningful activities going forward.

@justclickdiva, I am sorry to hear you haven't been well. This year seems to be taking it's toll on so many people in one way or another.

Your health is important, and I think your plan of action is good. Take care and have a good night! Hugs coming your way! 🤗🤗🤗💜

It is all good! I have been sick myself... tried to get well while still writing (only a few sentences) and posting photos.
Ohhhh... that looks so appetizing!

Thank you for visiting and for the encouragement. I appreciate it. I said I would get started, but not today. Definitely tomorrow.

Hope you get to feeling much better. I know when I don't feel well, I can't think straight. Everything seems the same.

Take care and have a good week ahead.

You take care and have a fabulous week.

Iddle... pish posh!!

You know I joined the Blockchain in 2017 (thank you @bearone) posted a few things, then got hit by a terrible Multiple Sclerosis flare up... so was away for some time. Then, I came back, and was asked to join in at @theterminal... now I'm P.R. Moderator, and member of 100 Discord Groups.

What's my point? Poo... I don't know! Honestly though; we love having you as a Moderator and just want to say...

You're appreciated... and relax... real life always comes. !tip

100 Discord groups. Get a grip Wes. How do you find the time. But in all honesty, I see you everywhere on Hive, darting in and out, building bridges as you say. You're one of a kind.

I do understand about the MS. It can be debilitating at time during flareups.

Thanks so much for your insight. I always appreciate your support and encouragement.

When are you ever going to slow down?

Plenty of time to rest when you move on...

You are most welcome my dear friend. I try to help other's, because... well, we are supposed to!

Lol...
I tipped you twice!! Merry Christmas !!

Well,Merry Xmas to me. Didn't know I'd been that good. Thank you so much. You need a rest, lol. I've been doubting myself all last week with voting/commenting and not seeing it right away. But I just don't do it twice and wait and see.

I appreciate the thought and support. I'll use it wisely to Power Up next two weeks. How about that?

That's what happens when you try to type and play with grandkids!! You do what you wish with it 😉 ✌

Hi Wes. I understand from a comment I saw in Peakd support that the tipu bot was running amuck for a few days. So it wasn't anything you did I don't think. Hope the tipu bot finds peace after spreading so much cheer with other people's funds. Anyway, I got a double delight early Xmas present.
