The day has a flavor of full moon energy. I felt it in the wind blowing around smoke and dust. I saw it in my clients who weren’t prepared and had a hard time paying attention. I recognize it in my own focus. It took me a few minutes to start a flash fiction story. I thought it would go one way, and it veered hard to the left. I’ll finish it this weekend.

Knowing that things can be wonky, I remind myself to take a breath and relax. This slows things down and keeps words and actions from creating a wreck. This goes for my interactions with others and with myself. Doing just the necessities, taking my time, being mindful of things around me can prevent accidents.

I have 3 stories left to write for MV2. Perhaps this weekend will be the finishing energy I need to pen the stories, edit the manuscript, and publish it. I’ve ordered a few author copies of the latest math workbook. I ordered them from new vendor, so no email yet (after a week) saying when they’ll print and ship. TS audiobook is on Audible. I haven’t uploaded it to Findaway Voices. I looked at my kanban board, and even after two months, there isn’t much to move. I considered my schedule and questioned why more writing wasn’t getting done. Writing is definitely happening! It just all goes towards my recertification.

Keeping energy in mind, I’ll see about editing my list of tasks and maybe crossing off a few items this weekend. However far I get, I need to remind myself to breathe, relax, and be mindful. How do you respond when energy is a little off?
