Blog Update

TRYING TO GET BACK ON TRACK.

I know I haven’t been posting much. Aging finds me trying to do more but with less stamina. That said, I am hoping to use post some  Quick Posts like this one three or four times a week. Time will tell.

My main goals remain publishing several new books as well as turning some of my eBooks into paperbacks. A slow process as I haven’t won the lottery needed to hire editors and formators. Grateful, my brain mostly works and for the joy I find in writing and trying to share knowledge.

Amazon did turn When Good Kids Get You Into A Gotcha War into a paperback me. It costs less than a lotte and it is a good gift for parents of teens. Actually, as adults also try to get you into such wars, you might want it as an adult.  A Gotcha War is when someone pushes your buttons in an effort to get you to act crazy so they can feel superior and smug

Should you change to buy this or any of my other books please consider leaving a review. Thank you.

LIVE WITH AWE AND WONDER

 

The Golden Ratio.

I don’t get the math but I do stand in wonder and awe of creativity. We humans may be less than a grain of sand on the shore or a drop of water in the ocean, but we are. Knowing that is the wonder of it all. 

Remember what matters, be grateful for all you have been given, and practice kindness.

Ban Perfectionism: Good Enough is Good

Perfection is beyond the reach of we mortals.  Fortunately, for most things, good enough is good enough. Moreover. often,  bad is good enough, particularly when it teaches us something new or reinforces major lessons we too often forget. 

Remember what matters, be grateful for all you have been given, and practice kindness.

BE WITH BEAUTY: STRENGTHEN YOUR EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

 

 Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.

 Confucius

Learning to fully aware of the beauty of this world is one of the easiest Emotional Fitness Exercises. It is even easier if you make an effort to create beauty spots here and there. Favorite pictures scattered around your house.

I have a black thumb but can grow succulents. I enjoy their beauty several times a day. 

WARNING: Habituation is a human trait that means we get used to seeing things and don’t really notice them. It took me three days to finally wake up to the fact that my husband had shaved his mustache. That can happen to the beauty spots you create. Work at staying aware. You will enjoy more and grow stronger.

Remember what matters, be grateful for all you have been given, and practice kindness.

FINDING HAPPINESS

Image and quote about how fragile happiness is.

We can’t always decide to be happy.  As the poem suggests it is a fragile gift. Treasure it when it comes to you. Hold it in your heart and paste it in your mind’s memory book. 

Remember what matters, be grateful for all you have been given, and practice kindness.
