Two things similar to crack cocaine that we use daily

Mid Life Celebration Visa cards
Never used these cards – launched in 2009 with another bank that loves MLC way more


Doubt is so easy to summon.

Same with fear.

It’s like crack cocaine isn’t it?

Ridiculously addicting.

And the withdrawal symptoms from doubt and fear are excruciatingly painful.

So we stick with doubt and fear. They comfort us.

But when we lead with action and decisiveness, we move forward.

Go, no matter how slow!

The time will pass anyway.

Why do we love big, positive news?

New Fiction book rack at bookstore
The world is over loaded with new books


Signed the contract, and paid in advance, for the first book to be published by Christmas.

Also overcame the fear of sending a digital copy of the book to a copy editor.

These things always seemed easy from a distance.

Joy Is A Choice

Joy is a choice I get to make every moment of every day.  Same with you, even if it doesn’t seem so.

Did I mention that I have a pile of emotional baggage as big as many of you?

Did I mention that my wife and I are disabled?

Did I mention we spent our life savings to become parents?

Did I mention our son has an incurable disease?

Did I mention that I’ve overcome addiction?

The list goes on and on. So please, please don’t say, “But you’ve got it made.  You are living the dream.  You are so fortunate.”

This would generally be considered an insult, and completely disrespectful.  And maybe the beginning of an excuse.

But forgiveness rushes in and all that’s left is joy.  Almost unspeakable joy.
