I neglected to mention that I would not be posting for two Fridays  but I’m sure you figured it out when I didn’t show up last Saturday morning. I’m back from a wonderful time at the best wedding and dance I have ever attended.

A few bits of wisdom I’m trying to take in from The Aware Athlete by Scott Forrester:

“Be ready to respond to each situation appropriately and you will survive, thrive, and prosper.”

Reading this initially, I thought to myself, but what happens if I’m not ready?  Scott anticipated my question: 

“Respond in a less organized manner, and you will not recognize all the possibilities available to you.”

I like this answer because we know it is impossible to respond to each situation we encounter appropriately (unless you know that no response can be appropriate). It is helpful to remember that disaster won’t happen if you are not ready, you just might miss something.

I’m thinking about how to publish my memoir and I’m reading that for 98% of authors, self publishing makes sense. I’m still investigating my options. If you have any ideas, please let me know because I want my memoir describing my experience in Freudian psychoanalysis to survive, thrive, and prosper!

What situations are you facing?

  1. "You will not recognize all the possibilities available to you." Is that necessarily a bad thing? Maybe you'll find a possibility you don't "recognize," something completely new and exciting and wonderful!
