Minute Moments of Wonder and Joy

Minute Moments of Wonder and Joy

Minute and minute are spelled the same but mean different things. I point this out because of the giggle it gave me to read it when I was gifted a moment to myself. A moment to breath and not be expected to find something or do something. A minute to write. So I opened my […]

Future Joys

In Write Yourself Happy the next topic is to write about something you’re looking forward to. Hard to do when everything is so chaotic and you don’t know what the new normal will look like, or when, yet but I’ll do my best. Just yesterday I thought back to a monthly smoothie date I had […]

Another Question from the Series

Wait for a publisher or self-publish? That will all depend on you and how long you want to wait. Both have perks, all have drawbacks.

Be Safe and Live

Be Safe and Live

Life is such a precious thing that can be taken from us at any moment. Something most of us take for granted as we go to work, come home, kiss our loved ones goodnight and maybe watch a little tv to wind down after a “hard” day. Our own safety should be our main priority […]
