One-Minute Writer - Touch Up

Today's One-Minute Writing Prompt: Touch up

What in your life needs a touch up?

Actually, I'm the one in need of a touch up. I honestly don't know how my hubby has put up with me the past 4 years. Since the death of my sister, I've been living in a bubble of grief - and I've let myself go.

I need to get back into the exercise habit - my body is sorely out of shape. I need to do something with my hair - I haven't colored it in almost 4 years and the gray is taking over. I need to get out in the world more - I've totally isolated myself from friends and family.

Simply, I need to start living my life again. Grief has been in control too long and it's time for a change - time for a touch up of life.

this is so in line with the wider angle lens i was talking about having read on the naked soul.. i too have to make some serious changes in myself and the way i see and do things, but i will be the first tot admit i haven't a clue where to start...

recently i have lost about 20 pounds and cut off most of my hair as i want the natural gray to grow out so i can see what i am dealing with,, so i have started making some external changes, it is just the internal ones that are really tripping me up right now.....
