Getting On With "It"!

Mired In The Florida Sand

Yep, that's me. Self-mired for the last few years in Central Florida. I have felt like I drove up from Delray Beach, got my "tires" stuck in the sand, and here I sit!

Before the move, I felt that I was so close to success, both Rob and I had good jobs and were financially solvent. We had a lovely small cottage and I had cleaning help for two years after back surgery. I had a wonderful circle of girlfriends who were fun and key in pushing me to write and self-publish my book.

I was in a writing cycle; it felt obsessive, but, now I know that is the nature of creativity. Even though I spent a lot of time on the writing, I had energy from the process that helped me with the domestic chores.

But, life moves on, and changes--that is the nature of life. I have had good times here; they are just different. Success cannot be measured by how much money one makes--it never has and never will be the right criteria.

I am trying to find my imprint at this stage of the game. I look at my image and am not sure who I am just now, not fully. "Joan" is a work in progress--under construction at the moment! I am in the journey, although it is so slow that it is almost imperceptible.

Blessings on you all, today. Do something nice for someone and for yourself, too--and smile!

Peace!
