STARTING AGAIN WITH LESS – Day 99 and 100 in a year of…

Day 99 and 100, November 1, 2016 @9:06 am

Surprising how busy and strapped for time I feel these days.  When I get ***over with, I will do *-* is often in my thoughts.  That time never comes.  Something always fills that *** space.  I’ve been feeling fatigued and stressed the last few weeks.  My goal yesterday was to do less.  I did not succeed.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
