To React or To Respond

‘Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? ~Lao Tzu

Quote How deep is the mud

They say that most of what happens to us in our lives is a direct response to how we have reacted to the stuff that happens to us and those around us.

None of us wants to react badly or wants bad things to happen, I hope.

A-Z 2016 badge

This month has been an above and beyond busy month for me and I am not complaining because the busy has been all positive! For the first time in my five-years of A-Z Challenges, I have fallen behind. I have plenty of excuses, I traveled to Las Vegas to speak at the most amazing conference, #BAMC16, traveled home on a redeye (what the hell was I thinking?) and have been promoting my new book, The Stranger In My Recliner. All of that +my beloved coaching clients and ghostwriting clients may be keeping me so busy I have fallen behind but all of them also give me the energy to Keep Moving Forward and to always think positive. It would be so easy to give up and take a nap but staying positive is an amazing superpower!

Today’s letter is the letter O

Obsessive-Compulsive-Disorder [OCD]

OCD is a series of irrational thoughts or fears that cause you to repeat behaviors that you believe will cause the irrational thoughts and fears to stop.

This or one of the many other mental health conditions can make it very difficult to move forward without support from friends and family and/or treatment. With support and treatment though, moving forward is possible!

Night Falls…

Today’s post is part of the annual A-to-Z Blogging Challenge. Each day of April (except Sunday,) we write a post corresponding with that day’s letter of the alphabet. For more information on the challenge and its creator visit:

My theme for this years’ A-Z Challenge is Keep Moving Forward ! Todays letter is N and is based on my newly released book, The Stranger in My Recliner. The book is the true story of Sophie. She was the eighty-year-old homeless woman that my husband brought home one night. She lived with us for nearly three –years. The book is out now!

Night Falls

It was cold. The sharp pains in her back and hand reminded her. Trying not to move anything but her eyes she scanned. She saw him and felt relief and fear. Getting up was painful but she had to make sure he was breathing. They both had to get out of there before the school kids walked by, saw them and got scared. The mothers would call the police. She did not want to scare the kids and she definitely did not want to go to the hospital or even worse, jail.

Trying to get the lyrics right…

Trying to Figure Out The Words to a Song?

Don’t you hate it when you listen to a song for a number of times,  but still having a hard time figuring out the lyrics, and asking yourself if it’s an alien language that you need to decipher? Or, you know what is even worse? When someone is getting the lyrics wrong and they don’t believe you when you try to correct them. Maybe there could be an app for that?

That would be great. But I have bad news. There was a study comparing how well two professional transcriptionists would compete against, the top of the line in voice transcription computer, the IBM Watson. Also known as “the smartest machine on Earth.” Their mission; accurately record four songs that were from country Taylor Swift singing “I Knew You Were Trouble,” Rock with Van Halen jamming “Runnin With the Devil,” a classic Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer,” and back to country with Brad Paisley’s “Ticks.”

Today’s Letter is: M- Moving Forward

It seems like such a simple phrase yet so many people find it so hard to do.

This weekend I traveled from Philadelphia to Las Vegas to attend and to also speak at one of my favorite conferences, BAM. It is a conference for midlife, women bloggers. This was the second year and it was fabulous!

Getting anywhere seems to be getting more and more difficult. Blogger and friend Barbara

April A-Z Blogging Challenge

For the month of April I will be participating in the A-Z Challenge. You can find out more about it here:

A to Z Badge 2016

I wrote this poem in a poetry class a few years ago. My first book, Bristol boyz Stomp was about to be released and I was so nervous. I had been feeling stuck in so many ways and I knew that having my dream of being a published author come true meant that it was time for me to let go and Keep Moving Forward. We only had 5 minutes to come up with the poem and a poet I am not. I should rewrite it some day:)

Being Nice is Selfish?

Kindness

Some psychologists believe that ‘being nice’ isn’t really so nice after all. They believe being nice actually comes from a fear. We ‘act’ nice towards someone because we want to be liked or we fear what others will think of us if we are not perceived of as a ‘nice’ person. As kids, especially little girls we were constantly told to ‘be nice’ and to ‘be sweet’ even to people we didn’t like. We were taught to keep the peace at all cost even if we were filled with hate. Some little girls learn very young how to use niceness as a way to get what they want and as they get older, as a way to gain power. Being nice is telling your boss to have a nice day because it sounds good but actually you could care less what kind of day she has.
