Four A’s of Easier Life: Accept, Allow, Adapt, and Adopt

80 INSIGHTS

As you all know, life can be tough. No matter what positive spin I put on it—and I am positive—life’s challenges are at best difficult. Yes, they provide the contrast helping me appreciate the good times, but still…

As I reflect on life over the years I’ve gathered tools that help me ease the burdens of life that are within my control. And more are within my control, and yours, than I once thought.

What I call the Four A’s: Accept, Allow, Adapt, and Adopt help make life easier in the areas under my control

Accept: Embracing What Is

Acceptance has been difficult for me. For much of my life, control was a dominant behavior. I controlled my emotions, often appearing aloof, when aloof is far from what I felt. I attempted to control my environment by working hard to make things the way I wanted them, then working even harder…

A Writer's Path

Bluebird

by efrussel

I took a Twitter break recently, and it’s gotten me thinking about Twitter. So, a Twitter post.

I’m not one of those people who thinks Twitter is absolutely integral to your success as an indie writer. I think there are loads of ways to be successful as an indie writer, and I can see how Twitter might be one of them, but, well…

Yesterday marked three years— ooh, pretty flowers

This blog is three years old.  And what can I say?… It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, and… whatever else you had to answer to on the final essay in High School English class.  Aah, I remember year one of this blog like it was… three years ago.

When My Blog Died

It’s not just your blog that may have been dipping in stats, it’s across the board. I know I’ve had less interest in blogging in general, trying to make more productive use of my time— er, different use of my time. But seasonal changes aside (Summer sun), remember to stay engaged…maybe not every minute or hour, but…showing up is important.

Vitals over necessities, YES… gotta have & find purpose, awareness— a.k.a., live; otherwise, you’re just existing. …On that note, it should perfectly okay to be away from the blog sometimes, since actual living and breathing come first. Not everything written goes up, am I right? 🙂

A Holistic Journey

EKGgreenI want to file an official complaint as a subscriber to the Holistic Wayfarer for going MIA on us. (Completely forgetting she’s been out week after week with his son while keeping the lessons going.) You need to blog again, be reminded there are good people all over the world. They want to hear from you. When you don’t blog for a while, you crawl into yourself and scowl about the people who are !@#!. You become deeper, happier, and look out when you engage your readers. You should take a few days off school, give T a break, and just BLOG.

Where I’ve been is a good question. The kitchen, trying to keep up with You-Know-Who’s sumo appetite. Foodie is growing before my eyes. We’ve been at the annual appointments I saved for the summer (photo…

Why Blogging Is A Must

Proof that writing can be very beneficial. Austin wouldn’t even be writing for The Nite Show if it wasn’t for the mental exercise he employs for his WordPress blog.

The Return of the Modern Philosopher

JumpstartHappy Saturday, Modern Philosophers!

I thought I’d try something different with this week’s Jump Start Your Brain post.  I know it’s late in the day to give your gray matter a jolt, but I wanted to share some Deep Thoughts that will kick your thought process into high gear despite the hour.

Recently, someone asked me why I “waste my time” blogging when I could be focusing on money making projects like screenplays, books, or a TV show.

I know the person meant well, and I laughed it off with a witty answer, but now I want to take the time to explain why blogging is a must for me.

Blogging gives me focus.  Sure, I don’t make any money from this blog, but it certainly gives my life focus.  I’ve written at least one blog post every day since November 1, 2012.  No matter what kind of day…

Flying by…

It’s June.

…And now that I’m back online after being nickled-and-dimed on…data. —I shouldn’t even be talking about data…but the only service with coverage in this remote area…is expensive.  Beyond being pulled away, it’s the reading and the mood swings—er, stress as an introvert, that makes being pulled away from the reading (and making the reading worth it) feel like a vacation.
