Incoming Refresh

At the moment, it’s Saturday afternoon. I’m sitting in my living room with my husband, both of us working on our computers, and watching ST:TNG on Pluto TV.

I haven’t updated this blog in almost 9 months, which is disappointing. I’m frustrated, because I spend a lot of time creating content – on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitch, and Discord. I’m not alone in this. But the ease of using those platforms, and the immediacy of feedback, has kept me posting there. I’ve lost sight of the fact that putting time & effort into creating content for myself and my brand is always better than creating content for platforms I have zero control over.

I don’t exactly know how this blog will evolve. But I think it’s time to step back from social media and focus again on posting and building a following here. I hope you’ll join me.


You Are Capable Of Amazing Things

Night sky, outline of trees, and the words "I have the power to manifest my dreams" in white font against the stars in the sky.

There’s a lot of negativity right now — online, in your social circles, in the news. And all that negativity can erode optimism and drive. You can’t control the things around you; you can only control your response to outside events. Your response determines your outcome. When others are being negative, look for the positive in the situation. Keep taking inspired action to reach your goals. Make an effort to complete one task a day that will inch you closer to whatever you’re trying to achieve.

Believe in yourself. Don’t listen to the naysayers. You have the power to manifest your dreams.
