February Feelings – Reluctant

GROK Card - Reluctant - #NVC

Another day, another GROK card drawn. 28 days in February and I intend to write about feelings for all of them? Maybe this was a mistake! I’m worried you’re bored. I’m worried this is silly.

February Feelings – Resentful

It’s nice to be drawing random GROK cards, and writing about feelings here on the blog. I like working on this specific writing goal. I gotta admit, though, I don’t like some of the cards I’m drawing! I don’t want to write about envy and resentfulness! Alas, I’m committed to this project, and I’ll stick with it.… Continue reading

Day three of writing about feelings, after drawing a random card from my GROK deck. I hope these posts are interesting. I woke up today and heard this shame voice- “why are you wasting your time on a blog? You’re not writing anything good enough for others to read.” Oh dear.… Continue reading

February Feelings – Lonely

February Feelings - Lonely by

Writing’s been difficult lately. A pain flare with accompanying exhaustion, and stress beyond my norm, have hushed my creative voice. Today’s a day for flipping calendar pages, seeing blank squares, and letting potential swell. I’ve set a goal to publish blog posts about feelings every day in February. For this project, I’ll be using my GROK cards, a dictionary, and my personal experiences.… Continue reading
