Sadje’s Questions to me:

What is the best thing about blogging?

There are several good reasons to blog. And rather than choose just one, I will share a couple. I love making new friends around the world. And I love the chance to write.

Have you written or plan to write a book? If so what is your genre?

I have lost count of the novels I have written. I think I have 13. I’ve written them for NaNoWriMo, either in November or inventing my own month. They are mostly sci-fi/fantasy. They were fun until the time to edit. I am horrid at getting that done.

Do you make life seriously or are you a happy-go-lucky person?

I used to be rather Pollyanna about things. I still mostly lean to the optimistic viewpoint. But lately, seriousness attacks me and threaten depression. I do have clinical depression but most meds don’t help. I have to work on it when I feel it coming in. Though there is plenty to be discouraged about, lack of sunshine can get to me. Thank goodness we have had a few sunny days to go and sit outside and absorb that vitamin D.

Do you believe in coincidence or you think everything is predestined?

I think the answer is somewhere in between. Though I have been a Tarot Card reader for a long time and even did it for a very short time for pay. I just felt that folks relied on it so much they didn’t mind spending their hard earned money just to find out if they would soon get rich. I did feel it worked well as a counseling device. I could use a card to find out what was hurting the client and help them find ways to work on that in their lives. But very few clients used that. They called often and wouldn’t try to get out of their own way. What that told me was that if something seemed coincidental too often you are drawing it to yourself by thinking on it a lot. And nothing is predestined that a thought process can’t pull you out. If you think all is doom and gloom and you look around and can prove it is, you have brought that to yourself. There are many books about manifesting. Yes, it is hard to do–until it isn’t.

Closing your eyes and imagine yourself in a place you have always wanted to visit. Where are you?

I miss the beach. Any beach. I miss being out on the ocean. We got to go on a cruise to Alaska once. Never would have thought this Southern California girl would like that cold. But I loved it. I figure it was the water that was made my inner mermaid happy.

Bloggers I would like to present this award to:

Well, here is where I will break the rules. I’ve gotten all the way to this part of awards before. I love all the blogs I follow. I have a hard time narrowing it down. And then people hesitate to accept because of this same reason. So here is what I’d like. If you want to accept this award, please let me know. If you want some questions to answer choose mine or follow the blog chain back and find a few you really have a desire to answer. I know everyone is busy right now, especially if you are trying to keep up with Just Jot It January.

 

Congratulations to you all. I hope that you guys can accept this and pay it forward, but if not you can give it a pass altogether or you can just answer the questions. Your call. If anyone feels able to answer my questions, please do.

Just Jot It January is Linda G. Hill’s gem. The prompt “Master” is brought to us by Sadje of Keep It Alive.

When I saw the prompt I went musical. “It’s a lot/It’s a lot…” With Depeche Mode. Then I found myself in Les Miz with om pah pah om pah Enter Monsieur

 

Since it is January and everyone is talking about resolutions or possibilities of healthy living I thought how many things I want to master. Like I’d like to move without pain. Eat, drink, and move with a mastery of self and pain. I think it is possible. I’ll keep trying.

The other day I found that Udemy is having a sale on classes for editing. It was such a good bargain (and I hope they are good people). So, I’d like to master my writing.

Okay, maybe mastery is too perfect. I want proficiency to the point that I like what I’m doing and unafraid to share with others. What I have learned over my life is that perfection is lonely and never fun. It can send me running away if I find myself working in that mindset. On the other hand, not trying will never  get you there. Finding a balance of trying and being happy in the attempt seems the only way I can do anything.

Does that make sense? I was raised by someone that wanted perfection. Wouldn’t let me leave the piano until I could play a phrase or song perfectly. The bed needed to be made perfectly, the house should be cleaned perfectly. But that parent was bipolar. The house would be so clean you could eat off the bathroom floor, or she’d be laying on the sofa in complete depression. So as an adult, I had a hard time finding my own levels.

I needed to find how to be happy playing the piano. Singing helped. I needed to find how to clean and thought I had it down to happy until the fibro hit. Then I found I had to be happy with whatever my body allowed that moment. Delegate and be happy with how they do it–or don’t.

It seems that nowadays I have to look at every movement for every job and goal. Oh, and maybe the word happy isn’t it. I think I could happy my way back to weeks in bed. When I really get into something, say working on a pair of socks, I can enjoy it too much. Hands hurting for weeks but nice to have the socks done? The trade-off is too off. So the aim is to do just short of the goal. Be happy with the results later. Not the way we have been taught. But maybe more the master of life by knowing limitations?

You would think at 69 I’d have this whole concept mastered. Live and learn. Have you found mastery of life easy?
