Feeling Down, So It’s Time To Be Grateful Acquire US

Generally life will get me down. So what am I going to do about it?

I’ve been means too sick to weblog recently or put up right here. I largely lay in mattress and cough. It’s a celebration! However I did get some e-book writing in. Yet another chapter, and I’ll be able to put up it on Kindle Vella. Now I simply must design a fetching avatar for the e-book.

I began feeling higher yesterday…marginally. I had vitality sufficient to remotely log into my 4 computer systems and setup SSH key pairs, moved some doge right into a devoted sizzling pockets, listed gadgets on eBay, up to date my dynamic DNS account to verify my internet and book servers have been working, downgraded Calibre and DeDRM to repair the Mac glitch with Kindle 1.31.0 the place the DRM keys weren’t handed to the brand new set up, then upgraded them so I could make DRM-free backups of my purchases once more, ignored the crypto-markets as a result of they have been miserable, labored on the inconceivable household jigsaw puzzle that would be the loss of life of me earlier than illness ever takes me out, learn loads of books, and laid down inbetween every job to recouperate.

What’s humorous is that what I need to do is vastly totally different from that checklist I simply shared with you, however I merely can’t train or do PT but. I can’t write so long as I can tinker. I run out of stamina. Similar drawback with learning Japanese. Or running a blog. I ponder why tinkering on my computer systems is simple, however engaged on them is tough?

I consider the reason being that I overlook to take breaks once I work, however tinkering is mental pudding, easy for me to do, and I take frequent breaks in between duties. You’d assume I’d set a timer and work in small blocks when working. You understand? The Pomodoro methodology? Ten minute increments? I’ve been so exhausted from these oxygen-depleting coughing assaults that come up from the underside of my toes, I’ve forgotten most of my coping methods.

So I’m typing all this right here to remind myself.

I haven’t gone into particulars on what I’ve been coping with this yr, however let’s simply say that I ate my Thanksgiving dinner quarantined in my bed room, so this present bout of sickness has me a bit down. I simply need to get again in form, socialize with folks extra, and experience my longboard for hours like I did final yr a number of occasions every week. However it’s December, we’re in a pandemic, Omicron is across the nook, and regardless that my knee PT has been delayed as a result of my automotive accident and COVID–19 (and now RSV), I couldn’t go longboarding on this climate anyway. If I owned a gun, I might put photos of viruses on a put up in my yard and shoot at all of them day till I felt higher.

It’s potential that I’m in a darkish place. Now that I’ve vented, I consider I’ll put up one thing optimistic daily this week till I carry my spirits.

Right here we go. Optimistic thought No.1: I’m glad I’m not lifeless.

Nope. Not optimistic sufficient. It sounds extra like a lyric from the Smith’s than an empowering assertion of gratitude. I’m certain I can do higher.


I’m grateful for a brilliant thoughts and geeky issues to maintain it entertained.

There! That was higher, don’t you assume? What are you grateful for?
