Ponderings……

Well, here I sit on the first day winter, listening to Christmas music on a cold Chicago morning, just pondering some good news I just got from my publisher. Turns out my book has gotten a bit of a push in sales in October. Good news for so many people, or so I hope. I so want to reach out to others and let them know they are not alone and there is hope through the NUCCA method of chiropractic adjustment. It’s the only thing that has gotten me out of bed in the morning.

The other bit of good news I nave been selected as the Top Female Executive for Life for Authorship for reaching out to others by writing my book by World Wide Who’s Who in Executives, Professionals and Entreprenuers! Earlier this year I was selected as VIP of the Year by the same organization for the same thing. I told this to my marketing rep and she told me that would make me more interesting to book buyers and she said to keep up the good work 😉 Hmmmmm……so many years of bad luck; Maybe the tide is turning and things will roll my way soon. I remember feeling so stressed about spending money on it, especially before I got my disability, even though I knew I had to in order to make myself known. Now I’m ok with it…….I see Gods’ plan for me unraveling. I’m hoping 2014 will be a slam dunk for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome!

Another tidbit of info I would like to share with you is an event I have coming up.

Sorry it’s been awhile, but…..

Hi all….it’s been a long few months for me. So much so that I was too stressed out to write anything, much less anything positive. Of course, stress can be very tiring, expecially when you have no strength or energy to begin with.

Anyway, I hve been doing a lot of pondering about my life and where it should be going lately. I truly have no idea. I have prayed to my Maker about this, asking Him for answers, only to not hear anything back; or so it seemed. Then it dawned on my about a week ago…..maybe I’m not supposed to do anything right now. Maybe He’s waiting for just the right time for me. After all, the Lords’ Prayer does say THY will be done, not MY will be done. Perhaps I’m supposed to patiently wait for now. Hmmm……a lesson in patience. He knows it’s not my strong suit. Yes, He knows what I need. More lessons to be learned; He knows me better than anybody.

In the meantime, amongst all the stress of the past few months, I have made a decision; I am going to be much better to myself than I have been in the past. I have always been the type to do the right thing and take the straight and narrow. I still am. BUT~there’s not a thing wrong with indulging yourself a little, either. Since I have not been able to for years now since money was so tight( and it still is a little tight)I decided to buy myself a Christmas present. Just a little something for ME for a change.I was thinking, “Oh, gee, I shouldn’t money is still tight,” but then I decided~and I apologize ahead of time~ THE HELL WITH IT! I don’t ask for much or expect much out of life, so why can’t I do for myself for once? Yes, money’s still tight, but so long as I don’t spend a lot, why not? The money will take care of itself. It will all work out, it has in the past. Sometimes you just have to do for you. You have to give yourself a break. God has gotten my through the worst of this, He will get me through the rest as well. All I have to do is sit and listen.

That’s it for now. Have a wonderful day everyone!
