When we change things, there is an awkward in-between space where we are letting go of the old and learning the new. That’s where I am right now: The awkward space. Leaving my safe home at Blogger – I began there in 2012 – and now settling into my very own website with all its own quirks. But hopefully, it will be easier for you to comment as I love hearing from you.
This website, NickyMendenhall.com, is where blog posts will be located in the near future. Right here! I had hoped to begin my new schedule of posting this week but I didn’t make it happen. Overwhelmed with learning all the new stuff, I decided to calm down and take the time that I need.
I will give you the tentative plan for what is in store:
The first Friday of each month: Freud on First Friday. I want to help you prepare for my in-process memoir which will describe my decade long experience in Freudian psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is different from any treatment modality I knew about and I struggled for many years to understand what was happening to me. If you decide to read my memoir, and I hope you will, this background material might help you enjoy it more and explain why it took me so long.
The second Friday’s posts: Attention To Attention. This is not a new topic for us but I think it is so important. If we are not in the moment, we miss so much. I’ll try and bring some new insights into the art of paying attention.
The third Friday: Peeking and Perusing Books. I’m not promising book reviews as I’m not very good at that though I’d like to be. But I will tell you what I’m reading – why I picked up this particular book. I will share interesting tidbits.
The fourth Friday: The Creative Process and the Inner World. This will likely include updates on my writing progress, tips for increasing self acceptance, ideas about how we take action without enough reflection. Helping you to thrive in the world is the goal of the fourth Friday.
Stay tuned for more information!
