Gosh, it’s been more than a year since I added to my blog. The primary reason is that I’ve been busy writing blogs for other businesses, mainly real estate companies and law firms, plus other B2B projects and magazine articles…and well, you know how time can slip away.
And then something happened that I literally didn’t see coming: I broke my shoulder. The doctors had to put me back together again with what’s called a reverse total shoulder replacement — kind of like Humpty Dumpty, I guess. I am currently in Week 10 of my recovery and rehabbing at outpatient physical therapy.
For several weeks after surgery, I couldn’t type more than a few sentences at a time before exhaustion set in. Turns out our fingers are pretty well connected to our shoulders. Until you have a return of muscle strength and range of motion sufficient to reach the keyboard and type without lip-tightening pain, writing is not something you can do for more than a few minutes at a sitting.
In picking up where I left off last year, I resolve to get back on track and be a more consistent blogger. Of course, it’s my own website: I can write as often or as seldom as I want. However, I seem to have gained a new post-surgical perspective on how I spend my time, and I am no longer content to let it slip away.
