My old journal, which really hasn't been around long is here: https://lindormrune.livejournal.com
Long and the short, I'm coming to blogging or writing a journal as I feel it helps to create a part of a routine that I'm trying to create for myself. You see, last year and for years before, I've been stuck in a deep and fairly destructive depression. Last year a lot of things happened and I reached a point that I was able to crawl out of the hole and now I'm doing what I can to stay out of it.
My intention is to do a daily blog on weekdays. I'll do an entry on the weekend if mood and circumstance warrants it, but this is meant to be a tool to help me stay on task and be productive with my days. Creating lists, processing happenings, reviewing challenges and developing my strategies to overcome those challenges.
One of my daily goals, other than remembering my medication, is to do my language lesson. At this time I'm learning Mandarin and Welsh. I'm finding learning the languages fun and I feel like I'm getting it. I've always had an interest in learning a language but only recently finally took the steps to do something about it. I have a good memory for song and story, so as a practicing Bard, learning a few languages should be within the realm of possibility. I think after these two (personal interest) I will learn Italian with my wife, as she has Italian heritage and then if that goes well, maybe I can move on to another! Ambitious? Maybe. However, studying languages is learning and as long as I'm learning it seems to keep me from having a certain recurring dream. So learning is what I will do! (In the past I've obtained my certificate in Death Studies, completed the Bardic grade of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids curriculum, and attended an Entrepreneur course which I used to launch my own business)
A new friend recommended that I come over to this platform as LiveJournal's LGBTQ+ stance isn't in line with my own ideas and beliefs. I think I'll like it better here.
Here's hoping that I'm able to keep up with my journal. Encouragement and comments are always welcome.
