In the Trenches—Day 288 Year 2:  Doing What Scares Us

Day 288 Year 2: It’s been a long time since I’ve logged-in to write an in-depth “In The Trenches” report—237 days to be exact!  It is now far from daily and is more like a bi-annual report.  My last two (brief) posts were about the Declare Your Dream Experimental Motivation Project.  It’s easy to write about that because it is a constant source of joy.  My last substantial report about being in the creative trenches on February 20th—Day 51 Year 2: Transitioning—was a rather melancholy, whiny laundry list of why I hate transitions so much and how I was so exhausted.  Re-reading it makes me want to go back in time and slap myself in the face a la Cher to Nic Cage in...

Posted by

New Declared Dreams!   The Declare Your Dream Experimental Motivation Project is now 183 Dreams strong.  And the dreams run the gamut.  There are dreams that make you think, dreams that inspire, dreams that motivate, dreams that confuse, dreams that make you sad, dreams that make you go, “hmmmmm.”  There are dreams that seem to be in code—only clear to the Dreamer who declared it!  But with each new declared dream that arrives—no matter how big or small, realistic or fantastical, selfish or selfless, simple or creative—power, hope, inspiration, meaning and motivation arrive with it.

Travel Column: Up and Away, Down to Earth—The Outer Banks, Corolla, North Carolina

Dear Friends, This month’s escape, in many ways, is a trip of firsts: the first trip with my beau and his children; the first trip with he and his friends; and the first trip to the Outer Banks along the Atlantic Ocean in North Carolina.
