This illness has been rough. The cough and congestion are long gone, but the bone-deep fatigue has been slow to fade. I’m almost back to normal–as normal as I’ll ever be, anyway–:) and I am eager to write and blog regularly.
Our winners this week are Cheryl Gagne and Pat Yates. Each of you will receive an autographed book, as will the winners of next week’s contest–two names will be chosen at random, notified by Jen, and announced here. Just leave a comment, and you’re entered.
I’m almost through the first 40-day cycle of the Vimala Alphabet, and I am so pleased with the results, subtle as they are. If you decide to check this out for yourself, I would suggest starting with “Your Handwriting Can Change Your Life”, by Vimala Rodgers. The book is terrific, and it will get you off on the right foot for sure.
This is a case of do as I say, not as I did. Vimala recommends practicing only a few letters at a time, for 40 days. I have never been very good at following instructions, which is probably why my results have been subtle–I practiced the entire alphabet. Granted, I have a pretty good grasp on the letters now, but I might have seen more dramatic changes if I’d focused properly.
That said, I did see results, most notably a significant reduction in stress. I will be practicing F, R and S in my next 40 days, as these are the letters of creativity, among other things. I love the practice, and look forward to it every morning; I can feel my brain lighting up as I write.
I’ve been gobbling up the audio books since I got sick, keeping up my bullet journal, and–:)–checking out pictures of Rob Lowe on Google Images. It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it.
