The A-Z Challenge

All the Insecure Writers Raise Your Hands…

It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means it’s time for the monthly meeting of the Insecure Writers Support Group.

 

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time.

My theme this year is KEEP MOVING FORWARD

All of us, no matter who we are or where we come from will experience different levels of disappointment and loss at some point in our lives. Whether it is a rejection letter, we didn’t get chosen for a job we wanted, a relationship ended or a close loved one passed away it is painful. The ways in which we deal with our disappointments and losses can be as different as we all are. Each one of us feels some level of grief every single day of our lives. If we cannot find our car keys we become angry, we deny that the keys are lost or that we had anything to do with them being lost, we panic, we bargain with God or the universe or pray to Saint Anthony and finally we accept that we need to stop, clear our heads and accept that we misplaced our keys and we need to find them. When we lose a love one we have all of those same feelings of grief, greatly compounded. Our lives are turned upside down and the world stops. Some of us find it difficult to move on. We struggle to return to ‘normal’ not realizing that we are forever changed and will never return to what was once ‘normal.’ We must find a way to move forward and adapt to a new ‘normal.’ For many of us that is easier said than done. We find ourselves needing a lot of help.

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.

Positively Powerful Thinking…

This month I am participating in the annual A-Z Challenge. You can find out more about the challenge here:

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!
