Sometimes I feel like I am doing the dance of one step forward, two steps back.
No, I did not type that wrong.

I have so many things that I want to work...
I have so many ideas and thoughts...
I have so many plans...
And am struggling to find the desire to do anything.

But I am trying.

Reading Update

I've come to the conclusion that the blogger app on my phone does not like me.
I tried to copy the book list from my previous post and now that post has been deleted...
Not sure why or how.
But I can say that I do not like the blogger app as much as it doesn't like me.
So, I am leaving all of the wording that was copied from that post, even though it was posted awhile back with the added books.
And I had to look up all of the links again - AUGH.
I love to read. . .
LOVE it!
Haven't done near the reading that I used to...
A thing called life got in the way.
In 2012, I tried to kick-start the one book a month idea.
I did get 12ish in, though it definitely wasn't one per month.
That did get me back into the mode of reading, but I tend to "reread" old favorites or pick up a mindless, quick read. 
I am going to target 12 mindful reads this year. 
I am off to a good start...
The hardest part is finding mindful books that don't bore me to tears.
