Exercise, like writing, needs strategy

I FEEL YOU-I need a strategy Some days, I feel like I am in over my head—pushing to make my ability to write sync up with my former and present success, while still working a full-time job, creating time for exercise, and my husband and family, and spending time with other writers. For years, it has been a struggle to stop the insanity. My multi-tasking-ever-busy-lifestyle has been the reason my health took a backseat and why I have not seen some of my best friends in far too many years. I need a strategy. As I am contemplating the end of

Personal Post: Weekend thoughts

Personal Post: Weekend thoughts

Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain. –Joseph Campbell This is a personal post! I have stumbled through the weekend, and now I sit contemplating the whole 70 hours or so. So how does it feel? I’m proud to have not been on the Internet as much. But it meant not having my access to all things literary. I didn’t check blogs, or surf. People keep asking “Did you hear?” and I have to tell them YES! And I don’t want to “hear” anymore. The tragedy that happened over the weekend sickens me to

Ideas and change equal creation

I made a list of items (ideas) I’m currently working on and things that I could probably work on in the future to up my cash flow.

I have 8 things in the wings that could probably help me get to my lifestyle reboot sooner. It’s trying to take in all 8 “ideas” at once that is killing my flow – I think that’s my adult ADD kicking

Striving for greatness requires practice

Striving for greatness requires practice

I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true — hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it. Ray Bradbury Growing up, we all had a dream of being something. Maybe a dancer in the Nutcracker, or a singer in a band. I wanted to be a famous author like the ones who wrote the books that I escaped into when my life was too demanding. So far, not famous. Not that I am not still hanging onto my dream!

The Best Way to Stop Worry

The Best Way to Stop Worry

Not long ago I posted about my business(es) and how I know business like nobody’s business. Well, that is true, but still, I am not a complete winner. Yes, as I hang my head, I have failed at stuff. Like leaving a job that is paying more money than I have ever made for another job to work from home. Not a good plan. Things that seem to good to be true oftentimes are just that. Yet, for me, failure is no long an option. I cannot afford to fail any longer but I refuse to worry about making a
