New lifestyle

Monday, September 14, 2015

I was recently approved for disability and will no longer be perpetually broke. So I can afford healthy food and I have time to study whatever I like. It's up to me what I will be doing for the rest of my life, I don't have to worry about making a living, just keeping my health and the health of my family in order. I had always hoped to become a writer (I don't have to make money at it - I just want to write) I'm thinking of a self-help book for introverts on manners. I think that shy people (even pathologically shy people) have trouble with feeling like they are not being polite, so I want to look into books about manners and write a simple book maybe in the for Dummies style about how to have good managers and honor your shy nature. How, being yourself and being polite is even possible. But that's just one idea.

I am also fascinated with my new home town and studying the history of the area. Apparently Dixie highway came through here and there used to be a train station (and a passenger train) somewhere around here. These are the kind of details that thrill me and maybe people would want to know what I find out.

Or I could write something else. It's completely my choice of what I do with my time from now on. What an exciting predicament. If anyone has an idea for a book they'd like to see, I'd love to hear about that.

I haven't been doing great on Sleeping, eating properly or taking care of my self really well, but I am working on starting on that. I am working on feeling well enough to start an exercise program. I found a gym with a pool. I have no idea whether or not I will be able to afford such a thing, but this week I will go and see.

It's a new adventure. i am no longer a professional person, I am a disabled person and that frees me up to pursue whatever excites me. That's a pretty happy prospect.

    Glad to hear you're moving forward in a positive way! I recently retired from my "retirement job"! LOL Anyway, it's exciting to have the time to pursue your passions in life. I'm still trying to figure that out, though! emoticon Hope you'll be able to take care of yourself first & foremost. emoticon
