Passwords Lockouts

It would seem that I neglected my blog page, and I have. Sort of.

Password lockouts have kept me from blogging. I don’t claim to understand why my password stops working, but here I am after what seems like being held down by a size 15 shoe on an athletic foot which of course would be on the connecting leg. That’s as far as my mind film goes.

I’m all right. I have survived worse. Like being pinned to the couch by my seventeen pound cat. They know when we have a full bladder. They prove their mysterious cat knowledge by kneading the bladder.

In the meantime, when I’m not trapped on my furniture, I have noticed new readers and followers, so thank you for  keeping me alive! If the password gods have mercy, I’ll blog again soon.

The sun has graced my part of the world with its occasional grin today. It’s been grey for a month. I must get out there.

Thanks again, and have a sunny day.

The Last Stretch

Oh-so-human Trials

Don’t despair if someone is resisting your goal. Perhaps celebrate it as a sign that you’re closer than you thought. No matter what you’re heading toward, keep driving your efforts until you can stab a flag in it.

Thanks for reading. 🙂

January’s End

Oh-so-human Intentions

Sometimes it’s just the middle of January and BAM—there goes a resolution—swirling, plummeting out of reach.

Is it that we fickle  humans aren’t steadfast in our “Dear Me” loyalties? Are expectations too high, or perhaps the initial “Happy New Year” excitement spurred us on? Did you do it? Did you promise yourself? To what extent?

Nice instead of nasty? Walk the dog twice no matter the weather? Eat less, dance more? Read more fun stuff, less news? Nicotine freedom? Treat coffee with more respect?

What really, really matters deep within?

A quote has been at eye level in my writing lair for years. I find it to be most effective in January, and it self propels itself. It is, perhaps, a doable resolution:

“I am only one. I can’t do everything, but I can do something, And, I will not let what I can’t do interfere with what I can do. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will. [Edward Everett Hale] (1822-1909)

Thank you, Sir.
