Despite my rant on Monday about the decrease in blog views, the followers number just keeps on rising. I absolutely love you all! I truly hope I never get used to this. As I said before, a book giveaway is coming at 1000! Thank you! – Viking

One of my favorite poems is Invictus by William Ernest Henley. The story behind the poem is also impressive: Henley contracted tuberculosis of the bone when he was 13. At age 17, physicians had to amputate one of his legs. Yet he wrote that: “In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor […]

It’s been a rainy August. Thank God I have music to keep me upbeat. I have been tackling a few projects that have kept me busy. Plus my mind has been whirling with thoughts about my personal goals. 

I haven’t really posted a lot on my social media except with my blog posts. I am starting to wonder if my parents are right that I have too many social media destractions. I almost want to take a break altogether and concentrate on my writing. I mean people have my email so they can check on me that way.

Trust me I have not hit a robot or ghost status. I am just looking for more. I changed my LinkedIn headline because I wanted it to be more professional.

I am also trying to figure out my personal identity and what my life can be in the future. I understand what it is like to be secluded from everyone I know. I mean I have lived in the shadow and went along with life’s plan. I did not expect to get married. In fact I thought that part had come and gone. Was I looking to live an ordinary life? I didn’t have the confidence to believe in myself that I could do anything. I was just a wallflower watching the world go by.

My last post was more like me. Describing what my healing process  has been like. Has it made me stronger? Yes! Have I turned over a new leaf? Yes many leaves in fact. I have learned to listen more and talk less. That maybe hard to believe, but I choose when I communicate things. Since my internet access is different than in the States I had to get used to not being able to be connecting like I am used to. Does anyone out there understand how I am feeling?
