I went out to dinner with friends last night to the new restaurant in the Presidio. Apparently, a bunch of new restaurants are sprouting up in the Presidio. This one, Pres A Vi, is right past the Lombard Gate in one of the new Letterman Drive buildings. The food was fine and tasty, but small portions. It just wasn’t enough food. I’m not a fan of tapas or small plates. Needless to say, I will not be back. I also had a margarita that was ok. How can you go wrong with a margarita? They’re either good or great!
I took a sick day today. I’ve been fighting this cold, cough, laryngitis for the past week and I needed the rest. I woke up, felt woozy, sent an email to my manager, then went back to bed.
I got something in the mail from my real estate broker the other day. She sends these tip sheets every once in a while to get her name out there and possibly get more referrals. Anyhow, this tip sheet was on staying motivated for the new year. Here’s what it said about journaling which I equated to blogging.
‘Journaling is key to keeping your life–and plan–in perspective. In addition to providing time for you to reflect on each day, it is also an invaluable opportunity to gain a true perspective on yourself. After a year or two, you’ll be able to look back at your writing as an objective observer and see how far your motivation has taken you.’
I’ve been blogging for over a year and a half now. Besides a few bumps in the road, it’s been an overall enjoyable experience. I’ve certainly learned a lot not just about myself, but how I choose subject material, how people react to what I write, how that affects me, boundaries, people’s emotions and feelings. It’s been really interesting.
