When you're down, the only way left is to go is up...
Rock bottom is not a place I ever want to be. I freak out when I get even remotely close to failure. I'm not one to throw in the towel, but sometimes life has a different direction than you plan to take.
I've had my self-esteem crushed to the point of no return. Rejection has my feathers ruffled, and when you're constantly turned down, you start to believe that you're the problem. I don't want to stir the karma pot,
We row our boats merrily down the stream of life, but it isn't just a dream. It's about chance. A gamble if you will. It's what we do for ourselves in order to make it through.
Every day can be a challenge. Family motivates us, so we work hard, and try to do the best we can. We sit at our desks, our counters, or our assembly lines, and daydream about the possibilities of something better coming along. Be it a better paying job, a career change with added benefits, or simp
Following your dreams can be a collection of the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sometimes you really feel like your in a Clint Eastwood movie. You have good guys, not so good guys, and the bad guys, but sometimes Clint isn't around with his 44 magnum.
When you're that pale rider on that lonesome journey to your goals it can be pretty rough. You work to live, and live to work, but life isn't easy come easy go. I really wish it were. But with a hard working mans ethic of being
Inspiration is that cute little muse that sits on your shoulder, to lend us a helping hand when we need it the most...
I have had several inspiring moments over the past few weeks. Moments that moved me, moments that pulled me down, but even with the good, and the bad there were those times when I needed a reality check.
The most inspiring moment for me was when American Pharaoh beat all the odds, and the generations of horses before him, by winning The Triple Crown. For
I juggle through my week like a professional, although I cannot really juggle, but it would be the best description I can use.
I've had a great week,and writing a chapter a day keeps the straitjacket away. I've also heard back from another agent on the book I'm querying. It was a rejection, but it still came with an inspirational compliment, "A lot of potential, just not right for me," that gives me hope to not give up writing. I cross that agent off my list, and patiently
This past week, I began writing my third book in my fantasy romance series. Even though I try and balance a busy schedule, my day to day activities between family, work, and trying to keep physically fit, I must work in time to write as well. Some days this week have been busier than usual, but I at least squeezed in writing one chapter every day.
Monday was my first set day that I programed time to write, after I dropped kids off at school, and then went for a walk at the
Today is the Winter Solstice, or also known as Yule, and this is the my gift to you, the fans of my Dream Big column. Although it's not been quite a year yet since starting my column, but it has been recording milestones, and with the seasonal change to winter, it made sense to me to post the very first coulmn, and the original title, that was enevitably shortened of course. The Dream Big concept was born, and became over the next several months a diary of sorts, and to this
Tonight I watched the behind the scenes look at the great painstaking mission of the making of Snow White. One million and a quarter dollars for an animated film in that day in time must have been an event to be had. As an almost unheard of event it took a lot of ingenuity, and a lot of miracles to make that first full length animated feature happen. But the birth of Snow White from the Grimm Brothers Tales didn't just happen overnight, it was dreamt about for years before it
I have been humbled by my past, I look to the future with open eyes. I see through to the other side, and past my fears. My journey will not end here. It is only the beginning, if I'm only given the chance to prove I'm worth it.
I want to be who I am without restraint, an unbridled creature who lives for the moment. I wish to be looked upon as an equal, not as if I were minuscule. I am more than just the person whom you'd never give a second glance to. I am the one you sho
