My Wednesday...Hump

Well yesterday at work proved to be as productive as my other days have been but when I got home...with the expectation of a rehearsal for my upcoming play...everything changed.  My son had a few errands to run and I told him I had to be headed to the rehearsal around 6:15...well 6:15 came...6:30...6:45 and at this moment...I was one heated woman when he came home around 6:55...I wanted to strangle him...I was so upset I couldn't even look at him...I had already texted the cast alerting them that I would either be late and if I had to cancel rehearsal...would text again.  WE HAVE A SHOW IN 14 WEEKS!! Needless to say, rehearsal was cancelled.  I was not happy....

So I decided to go out and get me some dinner from Smokey Bones...I needed to cool off and the brisket is awesome...I would use the rest of what seemed to be a hurdle as some extra time to write and work on finishing the biography I am working on...to no avail.  Not only was my cable out..the internet was out as well which hindered me from working in microsoft word which hindered me from getting any writing done.  I felt like "what in the world is all this about"...and wanted to scream.  After speaking with Timewarner...they sent the signal to my modem and box and everything was once again...working.

But after all of this...I truly did not want to do any work.  I was too frustrated...to upset at the current events so...I rested....played a few games on my phone and looked at TV...something I rarely get to do and guess what...it felt good.  Did I get anything accomplished...well in a matter of speaking...yes.  I accomplished...rest.  Something I truly needed to do.  You know as a writer if the atmosphere is off...so is your creative ability to produce a written work.

What did I get out of all of this...well when things do not go your way...you have to recognize that maybe they weren't suppose to.  I did...and I am all the more thankful..they didn't.  Until next time...

A Time to Turn

In everyone's life there comes a time to turn.  Turn why, you ask?  Well if you have lived as long as I have, 50 years, you learn that your quality of life is much more important than your quatity of life. As you grow and develop relationships with others, at one time in your life those relationships are important to your continued growth.  But as you age, and my prayer is that you will, you learn that those relationships that at one time seemed to be beneficial to your very existence, are NO LONGER NEEDED.

When I decided to move from my hometown and live in a totally different city and state and time zone, I knew that there were some people I was saying goodbye to, for the last time.  I knew there were people who while essential to my projects and my overall well being, no longer had a place in my life.  I knew this and with a sadness, accepted it.  When I returned, I no longer had a desire to be near them or associate with them.  I had made a turn.

A turn for the better.  This …

Press In Your Pain

It has been a while since my last post but a lot has happened in and around me.  Some good, some not so good, but all came together to make me a stronger woman and for that, I am most thankful.  In the past few months I have learned how painful a press can be.  We hear that when life hands you lemons to make lemonade.  Well friends, that is easier said than done and I am sure there are a lot of you out there who agree with me.  When life hands you a lemon, most of us do not think of making lemonade rather, we think of the seeds that it contains and how sour it is to taste.  We think about how difficult it is to peel a lemon and the sting the smell can cause in your nose.  In other words we think about all of the things that make it difficult to get to that lemonade.  That my friends is process of pain.

When we are in pain and I am not talking about physical pain per say, we hurt, we ache, we are uncomfortable, and we want to be left alone to deal with that pain.  We want relief, yes, …

Mobile Motivation

After each new year begins, many of us are motivated to do better.  We want to lose weight and we want to get that promotion and we want to start that business.  We want to be better spouses and better moms and dads...better friends.  But do we have what it takes to make motivation work?  What do I mean by that?  Is your motivation mobile.  In other words...IS IT MOVING?

We live in a mobile society where we carry mobile phones and each app we use has a mobile part to it and we are so on the move, everything we do and touch has to be mobile.  But are you...mobile.  Are you motivated enough to move that motivation to lose weight?  Are you motivated enough to make the necessary changes on your job so that you will be up for that promotion?  Are you motivated enough to make changes in your relationships that will make it better because YOU are better.  IS YOUR MOTIVATION  MOBILE...IS IT MOVING ALONG WITH YOU?  The answer to that question for most of us is no.

We are only motivated when mo…
