Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Daily Ritual.”

Think about your day. Select one of your daily rituals and explain it to us: 
why do you do what you do? How did you 
come to adopt this ritual? 
What happens on days when you can’t 
perform it?

If there is one thing I try not to forget to do is take my high blood pressure pills. When I’m down to my last days worth of pills, I’ll procrastinate as to whether I need to take them anymore. That only leads me to miss a day or two. Then…. Look out! I turn into a scary bitch. Ask my boyfriend. That is probably the reason why he always reminds me to take my pill and occasionally he’ll hand me the damn pill with a glass of water himself. I love him 🙂
The reason I have to take these pills is that I had high blood pressure and had a mild heart attack a few years ago. Anyway…

A WordPress Ritual.

No matter what time of day it is I always check my computer email and login to my blog – Ok. I usually look at my email about 4 or 5 times a day and am on the internet all day long. It’s easy when you have nothing else to do. That is pretty much me in a nutshell. Doing nothing I mean. I’m pretty optimistic to make blogging the highlight of my day, though. Sometimes -ok most of the time – I get stumped by the Daily Post. Today for example. Standard daily rituals come with a sense of habit and when I’m not on the computer I long for it I guess. Before I started blogging seven years ago, I had lots of time for other things like Church, bike riding, talking to others. By creating a blog, I have another purpose excuse to go online and be on the computer all day an active part of the blogging community. What I have come to realize though is that blogging is hard and I’m not a writer. The Daily Post helps you create a blog you are proud of. At least that is a general idea isn’t it? If only I can write better. I used to like Plinky. It had a way of sucking those thoughts right out of your mind and onto the blank screen. In fact, it was a place where I had fun. I am sad to see it has shut down because the WordPress and Blogger platforms are harder for some reason and I can’t write effortlessly as it was for me on Plinky, which puts a kink in my creative writing flow, or maybe I just don’t have anything to say anymore. It’s more like I can’t write.
