#Instaverse: Blank

Monday’s optimism was a little tarnished today, mostly because I forgot Rule #1 of the Internet: don’t let other people’s success diminish your own achievement. Sometimes it can be hard to be objective, and then you remember all the good work you have done and everything is okay again. Everyone started somewhere, after all. This is as good a space as any for me to begin.

#Instaverse: Uncertain

Anxiety is my nemesis right now, that and a rather significant sense of mental exhaustion. One is undoubtedly linked to the other, and are likely to increase in their ability to inconvenience as time goes on. This poem celebrates the day that I got my act together and resolved to sort out this issue once and for all… It won’t ever be totally fixed, but I can learn how to manage it better… and that’s where we are now. Onwards and upwards!

#Instaverse: Disaster management

My Monday began with a broken kitchen sink tap. Everything was fixed by teatime, but in the intervening period, and awful lot changed. It’s odd how these things present themselves, as I remember the last time this happened. I appreciate all the support and understanding as a result. Welcome to a new stage of our journey 😀

#Instaverse: Intimidatory Tactics

After five days straight at the Gym, because THIS MATTERS TO ME DAMMIT, I’ve begun to let other people’s judgement cloud my own. Fortunately, I have poetry with which to deal with such moments, and then I can go away and be a better person as a result. Also, I can still lift heavy weights and still run without too much issue. These are all great things.

Always be the better person.

#Instaverse: Not Normal

This was the first poem completely written in the car. It contains the best descriptor I am ever likely to come up with in relation to how my life was before the Pandemic. Undoubtedly the poem of the week by quite some way, and because it was written in transit, it is presented in Evernote.

#Instaverse: Art for Art’s Sake

Today, it took me a bit longer than normal to finish the recording, because I got distracted by making some art. Occasionally, it is good to do things than just what you always do, day in and day out. In this case, I made two graphics, both of which I am equally proud of. It’s a great place to be right now creatively for me, and writing these poems every day is undoubtedly helpful. Everybody needs a space to expand into, once in a while. Graphics are mine. Talking of which, I need to take some more pictures…

#Instaverse: Told You So

I retook the Myers-Briggs Personality Test last week, as part of a Patreon marketing course, and it turns out I’m an Advocate. That means I’m the one in your Twitter feed pushing you to follow your dreams or suggesting ways you could improve your existence. As a result, we now have a poem for that. I sense there will be poetry for lots of new personality quirks going forward…
