The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – January 25


Yesterday I spent the day doing as little as possible. I realized the other night that it has only been two weeks since my body revolted, and in a state of total exhaustion, forced me to sleep for the better part of four days. I and still have days where I feel like I am wearing a lead suit. Try rising from a chair, climbing a flight of stairs, or opening your laptop to type. It takes determination.

It took months to reach such extreme exhaustion, and fully recharging my batteries will require time. I still have obligations, but I have reevaluated, rearranged, reassigned, and renegotiated everything possible. I added one critical stress reliever — a daily afternoon meditation hour that often resembles a nap.

No matter the challenges and the obstacles blocking my way, I maintain the item at the top of my list as a non-negotiable. Yesterday I wrote 306 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.
