Maximum capacity

The other day my husband and I were watching some show, and one character says to another, “I’m thinking about retiring.” To which the other character, a work colleague, replies, “From WHAT?!?”

And we laughed really hard and out loud together!

Because who hasn’t been in the situation of comparing workloads in a given moment, whether out loud or in your head?

Online Writing Seminar, Take Two — A Spring Gift for You!

With the arrival of Spring, we begin to look past our natural winter hibernation. Here in northern Minnesota it’s presently a bit of the in-between: birds and critters are starting to move about, while we still await signs of green growth. Yet everything points toward revitalization as we expectantly place our outdoor chairs back onto the deck and watch the show.

At this time of year we start to grow and move ourselves once again, too. Maybe we look toward our tried and true pastimes that bring us joy, or perhaps new interests are sparked in us. Either way, it sure feels good to perk up and feel excitement and anticipation again!

With that in mind, I’d like to share another Becoming An Author writing seminar! Last July was such great fun for everyone that we’re offering another one, and it’s in a couple of weeks!

This free event has a very limited number of seats still available. We had actually closed the registration back in January due to the workshop being so full. But my Zoom room can hold a few more so I’m opening ‘er up! Anyone who registers beyond our attendance capacity will not be able to participate live and will be put on a wait list, but I’ll still send you the recordings. Check out the tab at the top of this page for the “Becoming An Author” Writing Seminar if it is of interest to you, we’d love to see you join us!

Seeing the hard calls for what they are

“Difficult… Very difficult.”

We often confuse difficult choices with no choice at all.

Kerri Richardson, From Clutter to Clarity

I see myself in this. “I really had no choice.” Didn’t I…? How often do I use this as an unconscious reason for my inactions? For my actions? For not making the hard call. For making the hard call, but not taking responsibility for that.

We’re not talking Sophie’s Choice here, people. This is about knowing our truth, but not really owning it. Giving our power away.

Do you do this at times, too? Who in your life is in your head right now, saying this? (It’s so much easier to see it in others, isn’t it?!? Just remember, other people are our mirrors…)

For me, I tend to experience this through my inaction, my not speaking up:
