Use It or Lose It

That title could apply to a lot of things.  Yearly budgets at work.  Muscle tone.  Memory.  In this case I’m talking about the moment that a blog thought comes to mind.  I have blog moments all the time, many times a day.  What I have found is that if I don’t write them down within 12 hours, I lose energy to write them down ever.  The ideas remain.  But the momentum is gone.

This is what has happened to me in the last week.  I’ve been bummed out about work.  Really bummed out.  That saps my energy in every other part of my life.  I’m trying my best to do 2 things: first, try to keep my energy up by simply knowing that this situation is temporary and I can’t let it get me down; two, try to fix what is wrong, either where I’m working or by finding something else better.  Number 2 is much harder than number 1.

Anyway, I lost my blogging momentum.  I thought that since I still had the ideas from the week that I’d just get caught up and write everything down on the weekend.  Then I discovered that that just doesn’t work for me.  I have to use it or lose it.  Live, and BLOG, in the moment.  So, instead of writing about the week, I will show you the few photos I took that will have to be enough to represent the week.  It’s a writing write-off this week.

I see the swans every day walking to work and they are so pretty.  They are also difficult to show off how lovely and how big they are.

Right after taking these photos it started to snow.  When I got to my desk, everything was white outside.

Another photo I took in the week was of our illegal coffee machine at work.  It sits on the window sill next to my desk.  We are not allowed to have any electrical devices at work.  Out little coffee cartel has TWO, the coffee machine and the milk heater/frothing machine.  Shhhh. Don’t tell anyone.

Next up, a small post about running Sunday morning.
