Did you ever play the board game SORRY! as a kid? The first player to get all four pawns from the start to ‘home’ would win the game. The draw of a card or being booted by an opponent would send your pawn back to start.
I hated that game. Almost as much as I hated Dodge Ball in gym class.
Both games are great metaphors for life. We learn how to bounce back after taking a hit and going back to start. While on the sideline we study the other players’ moves. We return to the game wiser and stronger than when we left.
I guess that’s where I find myself these days. Back to start.
The month of July is always a busy one, and this year I didn’t roll with the punches very well. SORRY! Back to start. I didn’t gain any new weight, but I didn’t lose any either. So as the old saying goes, pick myself up, dust myself off, and begin again.
I stumbled over a book by Julia Cameron called Writing Diet: Write Yourself Right Size available on Amazon. Having followed the Artist’s Way program many years ago, I decided this might be the key to success.
Every Sunday I’ll be blogging about my Artist’s Way journey, and I would love to some company. In the meantime, I will keep posting about my quest for fitness, marathon training and everything else. Stay tuned!
