My “To Do List” has always been far too long. The price of hyper-activity and big dreams. Has actually served me well, so that is not a complaint. However, I am an old lady who needs to sit down every once in a while, and revise her priorities. That is am important part of staying emotionall fit and emotionally healthy.
Posting every day has been a joy, but has slipped over on to the must do, and my life is not getting shorter, so I don’t want to burden myself any more than necessary with this or that must do. Moreover, I am the only one saying I must post everyday.
Moreover, with the E-publication of my first parent advice book When Good Kids Do Bad Things.and the soon to be E-publicaton of Parents Are People Too, I am now blogging as The Parent’s Friend, occasionally on the blog Metaplume’s created for me as well as working working the social media. Makes me tired just to type it all.
Moreover. I still have hopes that Merlin and Meredyth will be published. Catherine Vaughan has taken over the book, and has already published Begetting Merlin on Smash Words. Classified as adult, some would say soft porn, titillating. Next stories deal with Merlin’s early life beginning with the soon to be published No Dragon Slains, less sex, Merlin’s brief reign as the Dragon Slayer.
Wannabe authors or already published but want also to be E-published, think about contacting Metaplume. Many of you are writing books as you write your blogs and deserve to be published. I am so grateful, Fiona happened on my When Good Kids Do Bad Things and asked to E-publish it.
Now back to when I will be posting “God ( which I expand to include Higher Powers, the Force, Fate, or the Grim Reaper) willing” as my mother used to say. Parent’s Friend: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Emotional Fitness Training: Tuesday and Thursdays and my repeated Shabbat Shalom post. It is highly likely on days I can read lots of stuff on the web, I will re-blog–that is my idea of quest blogging. I assume if you are out there, you do not mind re-blogs of your material. I love spreading knowledge. Thank you all for helping me do that and for keeping me strong.
STAYING STRONG TIP
Want to really sharpen your priorites. Here is an exercise I used when giving Stay Strong Workshops. You have been granted the rare right to know the date of your death. Tomorrow? How will you spend now? A year from tomorrow? How will you spend that year? Five years from tomorrow? How will you spend those years.
Bonus: Think about what will be said at your funeral? Not the pie in the sky stuff, but the real stuff. What would you like said. Set your priorities based on what you hope will be said.
If you have time to go here to let me know if you like new format better than the old ones. You will be practicing kindness, I will be grateful, and if you don’t have time to go, I can practice forgiveness. You all help keep me strong.
