We often think of trials in our lives as bad things, but it's within them that we learn more about ourselves and change to adapt to the situation. We discover what's important in life in our lives and what we might need to change. Be thankful for the difficulties, they're helping you to grow. Double tap if you agree! ✊
#awesome#journal#believe#me#write#inspire#storyteller#story#bookworm#wow Today, I felt diminished from an unexpected quarter. On the eve of retirement and working fewer hours, I had expected some acrimony. I was not disappointed. People look through you; anything you say ceases to have meaning because, after all .... it's not like you have a stake in the work. In the scheme of things, you have become a non-entity. Now, this is not something I would want to dwell on . . . If I stop caring or being the delightful person that I am 😡, then Boy Scouts will not be helping me across the street when I am 92 or the nurses at Emergency will pretend they can't find my vein. So I got this journal with a marvelous cover (I hope you can read it!) which cured me of my pity party. And it will be filled with the wonder that is me! 🤓🍕🕺(Thankfully, its only 50 pages!)

A Tyburn poem is a six-line poetic form where the first four lines consist of just a single, two syllabled word, that all rhyme. Line five and six has nine syllables, with the fifth to eighth syllables using the words from lines 1 and 2.
For anyone wondering what 10:30 at night and running a business/editing a novel for publishing/writing an 8th novel/working a full time job looks like... voila! (At least, if you're Elysia and can't sit on a couch as recommended) And I love like 98% of it. Entrepreneurs, writers...who can relate?! #writer#entrepreneur
Our relationships don't simply grow on their own. They can run status qou, fade or thrive. You have a choice to face your relationships and build them, tear them down or let them drift.
Focus on your Heavenly Father first and foremost. Do this through prayer - regular conversation with Him - and through reading & studying His word.
It's this way that He'll provide what you need on a daily basis - with His strength and wisdom - to deal with all other relationships.
