Whatcha got for me?

For the last month, I’ve been waking up between 3 and 4 a.m. every morning.

Every. Morning.

No exceptions. I’m getting a cosmic poke in the ass to do something. I’m just not sure what.

I watched the late, great Wayne Dyer many times on TV…

I am most emphatically NOT a churchgoer. If you’re offended, then this is not the article for you. However, stick around if you don’t care where a person worships or how they worship. You are my audience.

I believe we’re granted a kind of grace in aging. Though that’s one of those things, you don’t wake up and realize until you’ve been on the journey for a while. The realization comes on slowly for most of us and for some unfortunate souls, it’s never recognized at all.

I devour content on Medium.

Then compare what I think and write to the content that I’ve read. I’m not pithy enough, not worldly enough, not in touch with current events and trends, I don’t make the leaps of intuition that others do, and I’m the laziest researcher around.

I haven’t been able to sleep worth a damn for the last three nights. Each morning, my husband has asked if there’s something bothering me. Each time I answered in the negative.

Nothing’s overtly bothering me.

Just write, every day.

It’s not hard.

Sit at your computer. Write.

Grab a pad of paper. Write.

Start a Blog.

Write on Medium.

Write on Facebook (which is like trying to make the sound of one hand clapping any more). But it’s still writing. Write.

Tweet. Oh wait, is…


An Overwhelming World

Information overwhelm is one of our most significant challenges in this digital age. We are bombarded from the moment we wake up until the second we fall to sleep.

Despite the vast amounts of data that come your way every day, there are practical methods to filter out, declutter, and…
