Whether you journal

In the morning,

Or you journal

In the eve,

You journal to get

Your thoughts out

Or you journal,

So that your words

Flow.

This journal is for you.

 

 

 

Whether you

Journal a short story, haiku,

Or to make

The lines rhyme.

You journal as a release,

After a long day,

Or to capture a quote.

Perhaps you journal

To savor an old memory.

It does not matter why.

 

 

 

Always remember,

Writing in your journal,

Is personal,

And never, ever

A waste of your time

My Publishing Journey- My Three “E” approach 4.18.19

The margins and gutter are set!

I have re-learned the areas of word set up, I obviously 🙄 have forgotten since the last time I self published!

Everything transfers perfectly to PDF, then uploads lovely to Amazon publishing.

Pages paginated? ✅

Table of Contents on right hand side ? ✅ 😁

Copyright on back of Title page? ✅

Author/Publishing prose readymade and in place for introduction? ✅

NEXT?

When I publish, I look at it as an adventure! As with the set up, I need my THREE E’s!

🎈Experience!

🎈Experiment!

&

🎈Expand!

(or shrink) upon

the next step!

I now go through and look at the journal through the eyes of someone who loves to journal! ME!

Tooo long! 😝

Time to go through and shrink it down a bit!

Better too much than too little!

Still working on it! 🥳

Kind Regards

Own the Day! 1.31.2019

Good morning all. 

 19 degrees here in North Carolina! We are extremely lucky considering other parts of the country are experiencing sub-zero temps. 

I wanted to share a little something I wrote a few weeks ago. When you endure days with anxiety, panic and depression, you often have to reach deep to find your strength.

Writing brings my inner strength to the forefront of my mind and helps me  grab onto the life I deserve! Putting my thoughts on paper, re-enforces the positive and gives me a little extra push, for my continuous journey forward.

Part of #winning is learning what it takes to be your own cheerleader!

 

Own the Day

‘Own the day or the day could own you.’- Kallie Knight

She was back! The drug, the doctor had prescribed day before yesterday, had taken her to a euphoria buzz, onto fog brain, then about 12 hours later, weakness, severe headache, heart palpitations accompanied by a sore throat.

Thursday had been a waste.  She couldn’t sleep. She couldn’t think clearly enough to perform the simple task of washing the dishes.

Damn doctors, she thought. Why can’t they listen? She had told her new primary care physician, that anything he prescribed needed to be the lowest dose then divided by half.  Thank heavens she had taken half a pill, 10 mg of the 20 mg prescription.

The drug? ESCITLOPRAM. It was supposed to enhance her mood, work with her current depression med. Now, she knew, when and IF she attempted it again, she was would only take 5mg.

Right now, she had responsibilities. Her dogs, prepping to finally, after a month and a half of living in an interim place, to MOVE! A REAL apartment!  The place she would call home.

K smiled as she  looked forward to hanging her hat!

YES! Today she would start to move a few things.  Luckily, her daughter who currently lived there, had the second bathroom cleaned out. Today, she would pick the items that could fit into that room. Only, fifteen minutes away from her current location it was like the difference from night and day.

Troutman, NC was a slice of heaven! Acres of fields, open space with the bonus of horses and cows, down the road. It was the one place, her whole being felt at home.

 

 

FINALLY, she felt HOPEFUL!

Doing the best one can, under any circumstance is what earns a person the title of survivor.

Feeling intense relief, she sipped her morning coffee, and felt exhilarated!

She KNEW-

TODAY, SHE OWNED THE DAY!

A quote for today!

“If you have an idea of what you want to do in your future, you must go at it with almost monastic obsession, be it music, the ballet or just a basic degree. You have to go at it single-mindedly and let nothing get in your way.”

-Henry Rollins
