I have completed my first full feature size novel. Off to editing now and hopefully a publish date soon.
A labor of love, the hardest part will be the dedication as so many helped me or pushed me to get here.
A few weeks and it will be time to start book 2!!!!
Have an amazing night!
The sun sets on another day...
Today's picture was not a sunset, but it was fun taking it and enjoying the walk at this location. Unfortunately the sunset was eaten by clouds at the last minutes, but I have received several in email today for those days in the future.
Having just seen "the Revenant" the consistent message was to loom at the trunk of the tree in the storm, and though it sways, the core is what lets you know it's power. I agree, but feel that the roots take it even further. As you look at the tree, deep roots will allow survival while shallow roots will mean potential disaster.
So as the sun sets on another day think not only about making each day the best day of your life, but also about making your core the strongest it can be, so as we enjoy tomorrow as well. Remember who you are at your core, and have the honor, integrity and passion to lead others. trust that others will do the same, and when they don't help them find the way (Or maybe find the door, oops, did I say that)
Smile, love life, live for each day, and wish upon a star as a promise that life will be good as long as you make it good!
The sun sets on another cold day...
Sometimes it is amazing how some people can be so cold, walking away from the warmth of life and embracing the cold pricklys in our world? Don't know the cold pricklys? It is from a story my grandmother used to tell me called the "Warm Fuzzy Story". I need to rewrite it as the person who wrote the book "Fuzzy's" did not follow the story I was told, so I suppose I will do that in the near future.
The gist of the story is there are two types of people, those who share their love daily and are there for everyone, and those who are cold and prickly, and just survive.
As the sun sets on another day, embrace warmth and love, and stay warm and fuzzy. After all, life is meant to be more than just a word...
Live life, love more, and make every day the best day you can have, until tomorrow....
Once upon a time...errr, ooops
The sun sets on another day... (that's it)
You know there are over 41 articles with the word "hope" in it that I have penned since the reset of 29000 sunsets. That seems like a lot. Hope is a strange beast, in fact I had three separate items dedicated to hope, hope 1, hope 2 and hope 3. Once upon a time a woman told me that no one had ever fought for her and she could never hope for that. When I did, she did not fight for me (Probably making me hopeless, lol). How many times does hope align like that for people in the world? One side hopes, and the other side blunders or does not believe in hope.
So, now I want to replace the word hope with action (we can rewrite the song to "A little less hope and a lot more action") when appropriate. After all, sometimes you have to change your path and find another way,and not necessarily focus on an action that is unwanted, unmerited or unreturned. Instead we should act to make our lives better, other peoples lives better and to live our life to its fullest and maybe then people will will act with us in a common direction.
As for those who lose hope, or choose a path that is not to fight, well, I know how that ends too. So lets just avoid losing hope, period.
Live life, love life, find the good way, and make every minute count towards every sunset you have...
