Do you vacation on Someday Isle?

“Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future. The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune’s control, and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.”Seneca

Somehow I believe that it’s human nature to dream, to imagine a better life. It’s how we evolve and develop. But dreaming is one thing, striving to achieve that dream another.

But it’s difficult, right?

To find the energy, the time, the motivation to pursue your dreams…

Non-believer

Do you want everyone to believe in you even though you don’t believe in yourself? Do you want people to support you even though you haven’t done anything to earn that support?

Do you think the world doesn’t notice you for who you are? Do you think the world cares about the way you talk about your dreams and goals? Do you think everyone else doesn’t see you procrastinating instead of being dedicated to your dreams?

Sure, you can whine and moan about it and get some fake sympathy from fake friends who’ll laugh at you behind your back.

But… Continue reading

Strive to be yourself

Modern day technology allows us to access information faster than ever. More information than ever. Keeps us connected. Keeps us in touch with people half a world away.

But there is a dangerous side effect to such a high level of media consumption.

We forget who we are. Continue reading

Brave, not perfect

I awoke to 2019 old enough to know better. To know better than to expect a shiny new feeling in a shiny new year. But I awoke content in the moment. I hope you did too.

I chose hearty oatmeal with my youngest rather than a morning aerobics class. Talk about “old enough to know better.” In my prime, I used to awaken on New Year’s Day more in need of an Alka-Seltzer than aerobics or oatmeal. My, how our choices change.

This morning, fittingly, I talked to my oldest son as he begins a new chapter in his life. Sounding excited as he drove through cornfields on a country highway, he is on his way to what I hope is a wonderful new adventure for him—college. He is approaching this adventure as he does all others, leaping in with both feet without looking both ways before crossing. In…

What are reblogs?

Well..

I’d call them trailers for blog posts.

Let’s say you write a blog post. So, I choose a short snippet of that post (usually the first lines) then add a link to your post. I put this on my blog.

This way, over 133, 000 people get to see this short preview. Those who want to read more, click on the link and go to your blog.

It’s a way to gain exposure.

A new beginning

snow

A new day, a new year, a new beginning. Each year, on the first of January, we look back on the year that has passed and try to see the good, the bad, to figure out how to make things better. We try to learn form the past, and probably, we also spend a lot of time imagining a better future.

We have 365 days to change what needs changing, to become better, smarter, happier. Our hearts filled up with renewed hope and dreams and expectations, we make plans and lists. Continue reading

Are You Serious about Blogging?

The Art of Blogging

Do you know what is the biggest secret to growing Your Blog to thousands of adoring readers who follow every word you publish?

Would you like to know?

Let me be blunt: there are very few people in the world who can tell you.

The vast majority of so-called A-listers are bright but otherwise normal people who were in the right place, writing about the right things, at the right time.

Many of them pay thousands and thousands of dollars on advertising.

Why would they pay such outrageous fees?

Because they stumbled into popularity. Because they realize they got lucky, and they are desperate to seize the opportunity before it slips away from them. Little do they know, that we always make our own luck.

I turned this blog into one of the most popular blogs on WordPress to date. I did it by studying from all the great…
