2017 Goals, both MS and non-MS related

2017 green grass 3d happy new year

It is that time again. Last year I was pretty good at fulfilling my promises to self, so hopefully 2017 will bring as much, if not more, satisfaction. Patting myself on the back for successfully keeping my resolutions. Does that mean I am officially an adult?

Projections for 2017 (in no particular order):
* Actively seek literary agent
* Clean up 2016 NaNoWriMo project
* Develop my next manuscript
* Review 10 books a month (or more). My goal is to pay for Boone's summer camp in full with review money this year.
* Get on the sub list???? (Not totally committed to this yet.)
* Arrange more book signings in new/different locations.
* Learn how to knit socks.
* Be more devoted to my MS Self-help group.
* Do something creative with my front yard.
* Be more diligent with my journal writing.
*Exercise more.

Well, there it is...my list, so far.

HIGHLIGHTS OF 2016:
* Best book(s) read: The Little Paris Bookshop and Chef Interrupted
* Boone placing in Globaloria competition as well as math Field Day
* Boone's sixteenth birthday
* Ampyra
* Hanging out with my mother A LOT
* Starting MS Self-help group

Have a happy and safe New Year's Eve and a prosperous New Year.

See you in 2017,
Lisa

Riding the MS broom

Do you ever feel like the ultimate witchy woman? That is actually a rhetorical question because I know you do. We all do whether we mean it or not. And guess what? We have a right to feel that way. Our brand of broom is a touch one to ride. That is why I truly believe that our supreme master, who ever/whatever that may be, doesn't throw us more than we can catch.

MSers (I read recently that this is an inappropriate way in which to refer to individuals with multiple sclerosis. The source of this judgement obliviously does not live with the disease. MS Warriors are far less offended by such a label than that.) are strong individuals who thrive on finding a purpose, a solution, a balance.

We are dependent on our co-pilot Common Sense. Care Givers are a beautiful addition to our lives, but many MSers (I did it again!) are not fortunate to have someone to clean our broom and dust off the daily spider webs that clutter the  cognitive mess of our brains. I learned that long before MS becam…

Yoga Burn gives new incentive to my morning routine.

I am not one much for online shopping indulgences, but a couple of weeks ago I allowed myself the rare treat of purchasing the Yoga Burn program advertised on Face Book. This morning I completed week one of the monthly scheduled routine and I even took time to meditate under the guidance of Yoga instructor Zoe Bray Cotton.

Laugh if you must, but I really, really, enjoyed the meditation exercise. I realize this is a solitary activity and I will never practice this in front of husband and/or son. 

I felt wonderful afterword, though. So at peace and relaxed. I always knew I was a Zen Goddess at heart.

What I really love about this program is that it "is a comprehensive online yoga course directed toward women only."  The older I get, the more I appreciate anything to do with "for women only". Weird, huh?

Zoe' voice is so very soft and inviting. As she leads me through my morning poses, I really feel as though she is my new morning bestie. Of course, I have only comple…

This Writer's Euphoric Journey

It is November and that means National Novel Writing Month. I participate every year. As always, I am behind on my writing goal for the month: WRITE 50,000 WORDS  IN 30 DAYS. 

With only two days to go, I still need 10,000 to finish. 

So...I will see you here again on Wednesday or at the end of my journey of 50,000 words. Until then, breathe.
