    I’m back from Honduras and a spell of almost 100% internet free days. I find this post to describe an Interesting idea, but decline as I have trouble keeping up with the small amount of writing and blogging that have presently committed.

    This is a wonderful blog and I love all that you are doing. It is interesting that I have been a published writer and a professional (not competitive) artist for many years, and I also studied life coaching from Eric Maisel, who is a great teacher and author. But for all of that, the everyday challenges of life as a senior have ultimately caught up with me, and so as a caregiver for my significant other, Richard, a survivor of breast cancer in 2016, and a survivor of PTSD from being assaulted and majorly bullied in 2014, I have become aware of how easy it is to lose everything we have achieved in life.

    I have written about this somewhere on my own blog, but somewhere in the early 70’s, my younger brother came home from Vietnam 100% disabled, and he is probably more than that now. It gave me a heart to work from that time forward through today with all sorts of physically, developmentally, and emotionally challenged children and adults. I worked in a number of school districts as a substitute paraeducator, aid, and teacher for some 15 years. I did not ever want to be permanent and have to deal with all the paperwork and meetings. I wanted to help the ones I worked with. It was that simple. And then I also started a nonprofit to help similar people who were fiber artists, and several of us ran that for some 10+ years successfully with no money in the coffers.

    The reason I have told all of this is that we all go through stages in our growth and development, and it comes and goes as the seasons of the year or as the tides go in and out. So we are always evolving as the earth itself is constantly evolving, and I have come to realize that what we have done or are doing or what we love or don’t, may not always be there. We must constantly continue to evolve in our own goals and dreams, and sometimes we must learn to just be OK in our infertile times. We don’t always have to be producing or doing. It is ok just to be ourselves and to enjoy such simple things as the water coming in and going out, or the sun rising or setting. That is enough because we can depend on those things happening every day of our lives no matter what else we do or don’t do, or what we have or don’t have. Thank you kindly for your great comments.

      Yes, Anne. ❤ You put it so eloquently. To just be is a gift and there are times when we can't be anything else, but still. There is so much pressure to be 'doing' all the time and we simply can't keep that pace up, especially when life gets razor sharp. There is grace in flowing and observing the simplicity that our souls crave.

      I am wrapping you and yours in much ❤ as ❤ is all that matters. ❤

      Thank you, Anne, for being you. ❤

        We have come such a long way haven’t we Jane? I am still in the setting up the website stages. SO it will be a few weeks before I launch that. But I’m doing some live events and a conference in a couple of weeks. It’s scary and exciting all at the same time.

          All power to your setting up website elbow, lovely. 😘 This is so exciting and I don’t know how I’ve missed your blog starting up again. I have always loved your posts. One the live events and conference… Jeannie, you have so got this. Xx ♥️ I just looked for your Facebook page, but couldn’t find it… probably me, with brains a touch scrambled right now! Xx

      Thank you, John, as that means a lot coming from you. ☺️ I have watched so many ‘how to promote’ your book videos lately and they mostly contradict each other. It got me thinking and I arrived at this. We write as ourselves, so if we flow as ourselves then it stays natural. Hugs Xx

        I like it. I have yet to figure out the newsletter thingy. I had 1600 followers and everytime I sent out a letter maybe 25% would open it. I finally said goodbye. Too much trouble. All the experts say have a newsletter. I think they are right it is finding the right mix and I think you may have it.
