Reflections

Yesterday, today, tomorrow.

Most of the time I personalize my columns or share other experiences that are close to me. Sometimes another’s experience might help you or myself decide about our dilemmas.   

Also, suggestions I might make may help you to decide how to work through some of your issues.
    
I am going into a new year. As this New Year approaches, I stay home and reflect upon my yesterdays, today, and tomorrows.  This has been my ritual for the past 20 years. I am not a bore, and enjoy me! You know the expression, “been there, done that.” This is true for me.
    
My personal Yesterday’s accomplishments, among many, were wonderful. Awards, self-published books, anthologies, printed three foreign books, speeches and being honored. The yesterdays have been rewarding, memorable and fun. Especially when after earning them, these came as a surprise.
    
Today I was putting energy into finding a publisher I have spent time and energy seeking a publisher because self-publishing my books was an economic burden for me. Every time I received a paycheck I would self-publish and add more books to my pile — either to sell or send to publishers. That was insanity at its finest for me.
    
Time is not my friend, because I don’t have enough of it. I read an article, and I am not sure if I shared this comment — that if time is moving fast in your life, you are productive. That makes sense to me. Each day, I fill my life with productive activities that I enjoy. As I write this column, it seems the morning is flying by — because with each stroke of the key, this piece will be beneficial to some readers.  
   
Writing, one of my passions — I knew the two books would be great sellers, and information that would help men and women jump start their erotic lives. Because I had research other books of that genre, I knew mine could be a fun stimulus in men and women’s thoughts. The books are works of fiction. The purpose of the books is to encourage men and women to know more about their bodies.
    
Tomorrow — which has changed since yesterday. I continue to put a lot of energy and money into cartridges, and paper to keep supplies for my writing career.
     
I do my best thinking in the morning. I am exhausted by evening time because of my busy schedule during the day. But it is all good. My thinking mechanism comes on around 5:30 or 6:00 a.m. I continue thinking. Sometimes I lose the thought. Then I might lean over where I keep paper and pencil and write the thoughts. At times this can happen in the middle of the night.
    
Now I am into Tomorrow and am very excited. I am no longer looking for a publisher. I believe an agent will benefit me. I know this adventure will be as adventurous as my yesterday’s, today and tomorrows.
    
Now I want to do presentations on ageing. Why? I look good and we are living longer. I know I would make a great model physically and verbally. Telling women your life can be renewed. Depending on where you want to use your time.
    
Reflection and time: What had been in your crystal ball yesterday? Your past?  Bleak? Downtrodden? Uplifting or exciting? Would you change?  Can or was age a factor? Did you let this affect you?  Have you been using your time wisely? I’m aware health can come into play for some of you. So enjoy today and your future!
    
I enjoy reading e-mail.  Drop me a line at Midgettssf@aol.com.
