Quote for the day.

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.” Harvey S. Firestone

Bullying affects all of us whether we are two or ten or fifty. I’ve seen people in their nineties treated with massive disrespect. I’ve seen family members treat their children as if they were less than the dust under their bed. Whether it’s a family member or a co-worker or that kid down the street. Never let a bully take up rent inside your head.


You deserve better than that.



Striving forward

I’m that person.


You know the one. I trip over the dog, the cat. Miniscule pieces of fluff. I forget to put out the cat food and only seem to remember when my little furry friends are glaring at me from their position near their food bowls. My list of “problems to conquer,” is huge. So how does that qualify me for writing a book, a series?

It does because the more I make my brain work, the more creative I get. I’ll never be blessed with a hard drive memory, and I’m okay with that. Do I still try to recall everything possible? You betcha!

Will I continue writing even if it takes me a few years longer than anyone else? Of course! Why? Because to get the job done I have to keep trying, striving ever forward despite the obstacles.

To make your goal come true, you have to push forward. So take that step, stretch out your hand and I’ll be here by your side cheering you on.
