New year, new plan

In a few days it will be 11 years since I began this blog. At the beginning I posted every day. And over the years, especially in the last couple of years, my posts have been less frequent. I come back and promise more but somehow that has just not been happening. I know myself well enough to know that I need to take heed of this and dig into what is going on with me that I do this.

The fact is that I feel I fell into seeing writing here as a chore, a chore that lacked the delight and even excitement of those early years. I remind myself again and again to write something here but the desire seems not to come. So how do I find that again? 

One thing I am doing is again taking down The Fat Chronicles. I will instead put my thoughts about fat here, in this space, the space where I feel they belong. Keeping 2 blogs going just doesn’t work for me.

I like thinking about and writing about psychotherapy, being a therapist and things related to them. So that will continue. And hardly a day passes that I do not note something about fat issues — something that makes me angry or curious or just wanting to say more. Back when I first started this blog, I also wrote about knitting and cooking and shows photos of my town and things that matter to me. I want to do some of that again. And also to pull quotes from my book and expand them. As I sit here writing this post, I see there’s plenty to write about, lots that I have things to say something about. 

So the issue is desire and discipline. I am not going to promise to make a specific number of posts every week. But I will promise at least one post every week. About something.
