BLOG: 6's & 7'S
In the past few weeks, a lot has happened. I have been cyber bullied, verbally attacked, threatened in person to the point of having to involve the police, had/have an unresolved health issue, am dealing with a sick pet and we won't even talk about the really stressful stuff---on the good side, I started yoga, am planning a trip to see my youngest son in a few weeks, LOVE my job, even if it is only adjunct, and, oh, yeah, I got a publishing contract for my book, They Call Me Crazy.
So, how does one deal with the major swings, the highs and the lows, coming from all directions? The Kelly of my younger days doesn't come out to play too often, which is probably a good thing. I choose my battles wisely now, and don't let those that add no value to my life have any place in it. I am a kind person, and although I love a good argument, I don't like hate, and when I see that in others, I don't allow them in my life anymore.
For those that don't know me well, I have narcolepsy and the side effect that is most difficult and most apparent for me is cataplexy. Without going in to much detail, let's just say that any excess excitement, whether it be positive or negative, puts me to sleep. Yes. I try to control my emotions so I don't pass out at inopportune times, but, I do anyway. So, I've slept a lot this weekend---We'll call it the celebratory nap.
Did I mention the publishing contract?
I have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and congratulations from my friends; I thank you each and every one. I hope you continue with me on this crazy journey, even if I sleep most of the way.
Random thoughts for Jen: Now, will someone please explain to me what the selfie fascination is with men and their abs? I get it, guys, I really do. You have worked so hard for those abs, and the tan, and I'm sure you've waxed, and you are proud. But let me tell you something that you have completely missed:
Man boobs negate a six pack.
There. I said it.
If you are working your abs to the point of rippling you could spend a little time on the boobs. Just a little time. Please.
THEY CALL ME CRAZY coming soon from Red Adept Publishing!
