2014 Best Advice
January 4, 2014 6 Comments
Happy New Year! I had a wonderful holiday season and hope yours was too. There were lots of relaxing and enjoyable gatherings with friends and family, including a fun wedding, and lots of baby time. Our eldest is still recovering from her car accident in September, and the new mommy had a battle with a kidney stone, but those were the only concerns this year. We know to count our blessings.
This is why I’ve decided to share the one post that seems to be the best advice to begin the year.
I had the opportunity to read Judy’s memoir prior to publication. The story follows Judy’s relationship with her foot, that had been an aggravation to her life activities, her whole life. Eventually she chose to become an amputee. Really? Choose to cut off your leg?
Yes, and it’s a wonderful and personal journey that she shares with readers who have no reason to make such a choice. But it’s also an inspiring story of how to assess the need for positive, if highly radical and often discouraged, change. Judy is also honest regarding how to adapt to when what’s holding you back is suddenly gone. There can be a whole new set of challenges!
For one of those warm and fuzzy – awe how wonderful – stories: The meemaw effect by The Bloggess is one of her departure from the raw and ribald posts.
I am getting my energy back and feel the clarity to really attack the edits on my next novel. The holiday decor has been stored, and the closet of disaster has been cleaned.
