Oops! I just learned that I can only post one blog a day, here on site! Yesterday's, day 6 was actually, early this morning, as it was after midnight!

Today, was more research for a very extensive critique, that is far from sharing!

Several hours, already spent on notes, and the outlining process.

I've been putting off getting into my messages, until, after, but realized that I was communicating from 10:00 pm-2:00 am, and was making more mistakes, just due to brain burn-out.

Today, I'm stopping in early, as I realize, the training is important, if I'm to I have a vehicle, to share my ideas....ie. A website!!

By, 6:00, I will stop, this, and get on to, just that! It's about balance!

I hope everyone, has had a restful weekend.

Love this community! I feel, so blessed!

There really is a tremendous power in being consistent, Barabara. I really commend you for taking up this writing challenge. I'm sure you're already learning things about yourself that you never knew.

All the best to you!

Veronica, if you only knew!
The challenge, for me, is qualifying the information, from my head, which, at this age, came from many, many sources...pulling old books off the shelf, and being able to "give credit, where credit is due"...Background information...digging deep.
This morning, I went looking for my original astrological chart, which was not to be found, yet, I ran across my baby book!
I mentioned the "verbal dyslexia" in an earlier post. Mom gave specific instances, that "were so cute!"...What an epiphany!!
"More will be revealed!"
Thank you, for your thoughts...Gold!
Have a blessed day!

WHEW!!!

"Digging deep" will expose a lot of things, but there are some great treasures in store for those who take the time to do so, so keep digging, Barbara!

Those "Aaha! or WT...?" moments...all necessary for that self-understanding and acceptance...Warts and All!
You, understand!
That "digging?"..."sometimes diamonds..sometime time coal!"

Hey, Barb. I have an issue with balance. I get so into the community and their comments and blogs that I don't get as much done on my own site that I want too. There's so much to do and so little time. I'm working on finding a balance myself. I want to start adding blogs to my routine, just haven't figured it all out yet. See you at the top.

Yes, Don, that balance...
I, too, can spend much time, as I'm loving the folk, here, but it's priority, that's got to stay in focus.
For, instance...I'm writing everyday, that commitment, I made has to be met, so this morning, I wrote for my after midnight posting slot. By taking care of this, first, I'm now free to face the web building, which is not my preference, but without,,,what's the point of having it?
Before embarking, on that, I will visit here, briefly, answering private messages, and addressing comments form blog posts and other personal communications.
Adding people to my following, is something for later this evening, like hanging out on FB, but with a mission.
I guess this could have been a post in itself, but , again, priorities.
Yes, Don! See You,at the top!

Hey, Barb. Thanks for the come back. Like you, I try to get the community stuff done first. That frees me up for the rest of the day to work on my own website. Up until now, I have had plenty of time, since I have been off with a back issue. Now I go back to work tomorrow and my available time will be substantially shortened. I'll get it figured out. I am determined to make it work. With everyone's help, I'll get there. Thanks again.

Back to "corporate work"...I feel for you, Don! LOL

Think quality "break time". I used to spend needless time in the teachers' lounge, usually a lot of griping and complaining.
I started eating in my room, sometimes alone, and sometimes with a couple of my female students.
Quality over Quantity! I cherish those memories, of the time with, "my girls".
What can be down with a 10 minute break, besides smoking a cigarette? Food for thought...

Yes, I like what you said about balance. Once in a while I have to play with my 2 year old granddaughter when she bursts into my room. She calls me Mom, because her Mom calls me Mom.

So on the weekend, it is 2/3 training, 1/3 playing. When I go back to training, I am refreshed.

Yes WA members are one of a kind that's for sure. Seven months ago if someone told me I would be doing this I would have said they have rocks in their head.
Looks like the shoes on the other foot now.
Sleep well, Barb!!!
