You are who you are…

You are who you are.  You just need to find where your talents can make a difference.

In other words, you must find where you fit.

Let me back up a bit.

The conversation that led to this epiphany began how it always starts – with gossip.

My daughter mentioned that a married couple, we both know, always spends their free time with each other. I thought, what a concept, right?

The observation triggered a thought about the husband’s former girlfriend and how she thought he was a loser and fat.  She left him. Fast forward to the future.

The Invisible You

Who would you be if you didn’t care what others thought of you? Or better question, who are you when no one is looking?   Do you know? Have you ever met her?

If you haven’t; is the masked woman hiding her the reason you haven’t achieved your life’s goals?

When we spend time trying to be everything to everyone we forfeit our true self and our dreams go with it.

If this seems familiar, however, don’t sweat it. There’s still time to recover your Self and your dreams.  

Why did the Writer Cross the Road?


“I failed to write 40,000 more words to complete my NaNoWriMo2016 goal. Weird too, because I never fail to write 50,000 words. In fact, I’ve probably written more than 10 million words to date.” -My response to “Happy December, Writers

So, why would it be so difficult for a professional writer, such as me, to hit the mark of writing 50,000 words in 30 days?

Please note, I’m not making an excuse for my failure.

“Excuses are the tools of the incompetent.  They build monuments of nothingness.  Those who dwell in them rarely excel at anything else.”

There is, however, a lesson in failure – I missed the mark due to an improperly identified goal.
