Sorry! Sorry! Sorry! Sorry! I’ve been a very bad Wattpad writer and reader these last couple weeks (my school had a two-week Winter Break). I had big plans to catch up on my reading and writing, but--nope. Instead, I caught up with the rest of my life. I’m not going to lie--it felt good. In my absence, I discovered my life needed more balance. Aside from my full-time job, writing, networking/interacting on Wattpad and sleeping (which were my focuses for most of 2018), I also need: 1. Exercise/Healthy eating 2. Dating 3. Spending more time with family and friends 4. Caring for my own physical/mental/spiritual well-being 5. Going back to school 6. Cleaning more! 7. …And other stuff In other words, I need to find a better balance between chasing my dreams (writing) and enjoying the life right in front of me. Because as I focus on some moment in the future that may or may not ever arrive (my dreams)--the “real” moments that have arrived are passing before my eyes. I need to slow down a bit and enjoy the life that’s right in front of me--because before I know it--all the stuff I've taken for granted will one day be gone. Bad Boy Programmer WILL be completed in 2019, but the updates may be a bit slower than before. Hopefully you understand. I do cherish all my readers who've journeyed with me so far on this project. In fact, I cherish y'all so much--I feel terribly guilty for reducing my time spent on Wattpad. I hope these slower updates aren't seen as a letdown. May 2019 bring many blessings for all of us. I think it's going to be a great year. I look forward to spending a small part of that year with all of you in the coming months. Take care, Marilyn PS: There could quite possibly be a side project coming soon--one where I share how well Amanda's online dating profile held up in the "real world." ;)
You and I are in similar boats, though I just got out of the hospital on Monday. Hears to taking care of ourselves and keeping writing fun and balanced within our lives. And to healthy eating.
