I get depressed from time to time. It creeps up on me and blasts me out of the blue, and I have to cry for a week, and then kick myself and crawl out of it. I'm trying to kick myself into not wasting a week in a crying jag.

Maybe the guy was nice because he wasn't the one avoiding the stairs. emoticon I have one guy who drops my packages off at my porch ... and another guy who drops my packages off on my sister's porch. My house is directly behind hers, and we share a driveway. The crops in the field hide me back here in the horseshoe of trees, and if you don't drive on between my sister's garage and the barn, you won't know there are two houses. My sister says they plan on putting up a sign with my house number with an arrow showing to continue driving passed the garage and barn. I get tired of having to retrieve my packages from her porch. But, at least it's on my sister's front porch, and not some stranger's porch who would keep what was delivered.

Re: 2018 Chat


I'm practing to sit with my bad feelings and meditate and release them. It's helping, but it's not always easy.

I still believe that emotions need to be felt and then released - they are basically signposts, to alert us to something. Letting them go when they have done their duty is a good idea... not something we're taught in life.

I'm reading a fascinating book right now, by Joe Dispenza: "Breaking the Habit of Being You - How to Lose your Mind and Create a New One". (Lesa would bap me for that one, it's part energy work, part new age stuff, and part true wisdom.) Its main focus it to teach how to release old emotions, beliefs and blocks.

Re: 2018 Chat


So yesterday I got my tooth scanned. That was an interesting experience. Basically, I got to sit in a chair, with lead securing covers around me and getting a 3D x-ray of my tooth.

I walked there from work, which was okay. Right now, diclofenac is my friend - stupid back ache. I took the bus downtown after that, got some sandals I had been wanting for a while, and bought two deco items for my balcony. One of them was a replacement for a worn thing.

Still happy with my writing.

And this morning, I was thinking - just idle thinking, there's no reason - about what I would do if I knew I only had a short time to live. (That is actually a typical therapist question, designed to uncover true priorities.)

And my answer was that I would hustle to get as many stories published as I could. That mattered most to me, and it's a clear indication of where my plans should go. I mean, I love EFT and won't give it up, but maybe getting my priorities right is important.

I wish you lots of happy writing! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Re: 2018 Chat


Not a good weekend. Having to catch up on my bookkeeping and taxes makes me feel horrible. I know the numbers are bad. I know my businesses are failing. I do not know how to turn that around.

 emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Even so, I wrote. It's one of the few sources of joy in my life at the moment. (No clients, no sales...)

Today, I go back to the dental specialist, for another session with that final, twisted root canal. I hope this is it, and the next step is the crown. Truth is, I'm expecting another session, because I think he'll want to wait a week before filling it all. I'm so tired of this. emoticon

So yeah. Depression time.

Wishing you all better days and happy writing. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Re: 2018 Chat


I didn't work today. The brakes on my van failed so I spent the entire day in the shop getting them repaired. The mechanic told me I was lucky in that my van uses the less expensive rotors. I wanted to believe him but I was looking at a $1,[sign in to see URL] repair bill when he told me that bit of information.

Then I tracked down the reason the "It's a Dog's Life" skin wasn't behaving as it should and fixed it.

Finally, I made some additional progress on the "Battleship Row" skin.

I deliberately chose not to dwell on the troubles in my church. I'll let the actions made there by others percolate in the back of my mind for a day or so before making any plans in that regard.

Rick: emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm sorry about that bill, but brakes are somewhat important on a car... still, that is painful.

Yay for programming and writing fun. Sometimes, that's what we have to go after.

And I'm wishing you lots and lots of good luck and divine guidance for your church trouble. May there be good solutions.


So yeah. Root canal. No numbing. Some pain. We figured out what the rogue canal is doing, and yes, it is wiggly and tricksy. Specialist broke off the tip of his drill working to clear that canal and yes, the tip is still stuck inside that canal. He took an additional x-ray, computer crashed, rebooted (and YES, ran Windows 10 updates!!), so he gave up, filled up the tooth and sent me home. We'll resume the work in two weeks.

I am SO fricking tired of this. And of course, the adrenalin crash wasn't fun, either.

Considering all the current frustration, I am seriously considering quitting my two businesses and go on with EFT and writing as hobbies. I'll have to find out if I can do EFT legally that way. I do have the licenses. But I can certainly keep writing and building my backlist, and once the income surpasses the hobby threshold, I can go back and have a business again.

Right now, this feels like a good idea that will bring me much relief. It also feels like giving up...

Re: 2018 Chat


Yesterday was a bit of a rest day. And a thinky day. And a recovery day.

I probably won't give up my business. Thing is that if I only get one client once a year, I will probably end up going above the hobby threshold. *sigh* (Books will be safe for quite a while, so I will kill that part, most likely.)

Still need to talk about that with my tax advisor friend.

And there are two things I can (and need) to do as soon as possible:

1) Get an ebook written that positions me as expert. Working title: "The Write Mindset - Bust out of Writers' Block with EFT Tapping"

2) Create an online class from my 30 Days Daily Writing Habit. It simply means editing the text and adding video. I hope that'll work on Teachable. That'll be more social proof and chances for upselling. It might even make me some money, although I don't want to make it expensive.

So yeah. Time to get cracking. Or even better, time to discover the fun of this stuff!

Happy writing! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Re: 2018 Chat


I didn't manage any work for my businesses yesterday - except having an awesome call with a guy from my cell phone provider's call center. I need to get receipts / bills from them from last year, and I can't access those online anymore. Totally my fault for slacking. He enjoyed our conversation so much that he is sending them to me for free. emoticon

(He also got curious about EFT, and asked me what I'm doing. When I mentioned I didn't have clients, he was surprised, said he loved my voice and way of communicating, and told me quite seriously that it will get better. I was almost in tears at that. Imagine support from such an unlikely source.)
  emoticon emoticon

I did set up today's blog and newsletter, including recording another video. I think I look horrible in it.

And then I wrote the report of the horrible torture scene someone had to watch. Now Zell has to tell his friend in turn, and one of them will recognize the bad guy. And that is the next big challenge for him... he'll go into a gladiator kind of setting to uncover all those crimes.

Today, the weather is brilliant again, and I will write on the balcony. I'll also need do more bookkeeping... and set up a better system.

Wishing you a great day and much writing! emoticon emoticon

Rick: We're missing you. Or at least I am. I hope that whatever is going on can be resolved. emoticon emoticon

Not much to say, really. Weather is nice again, I'm struggling with bookkeeping and tax stuff, and I'm making time to write every day.

Writing has become a source of joy. And I will write about that journey and market the heck out of it. emoticon emoticon

Looking forward to the weekend.

Re: 2018 Chat


Writing is fun, at least writing Zell, and other fiction.

I must also write non-fiction, to give a boost to my coaching business. Thing is, it feels like a chore. I just want to do EFT with people, dangit. At least I figured out one major problem, so now I can move ahead. Hopefully.

And of course, bookkeeping for a failing business is making me sick. So I need to start making money for my own good. emoticon emoticon

It's beautiful weather here, not hot. Almost warm enough to be in just a t-shirt... almost.

Wishing you a lovely day! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Re: 2018 Chat


Difficult day on Sunday, but it all worked out in the end. I will now be going on on my birthday next week.

Also had a lovely chat with my brother, and I wrote on the balcony.

Did another month of bookkeeping, and it was a really good month! Yeah! More of that!

Re: 2018 Chat


I'm a little disgusted at a few things, and quite angry about a few others. No, I don't want to go into details.

I'm seriously considering starting a blog with political and cultural rants, though. Just not sure where and how. And not sure I want the hassle of policing hateful comments.

Of course, if I blog under a male pen name, that probably won't be too bad. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I learned a lot about those "strategy calls" that coaches do to get to know potential clients and well... sell... their courses. I hate selling, but I want clients, so I suppose I need to find a way to reconcile those two.

At any rate, I will revamp my sales pages and my other communication. It feels both exciting and terrifying.

Wishing you happy writing time. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Have you come across this channel? Not sure how helpful she will be, but just in case. (Sorry if I've shared before. I can't recall where I've shared what I share.)

[Edit]

I just watched this video ... it seems having other channels link their followers to you might help. Maybe do cross interviewing videos? emoticon

Re: 2018 Chat


Thank you, Jox. I will check those out.

I have also decided to make a new board where I can post my thoughts. Access will be to selected friends only.

It took me most of yesterday to finally process what happened and make decisions. It may be somewhat life-changing. I hope it'll be good.

I also found a few job offers in my home town, and I will apply to them. My weekend will be busy!

(One of them utterly fascinates me: It's at the university library, for a position to create online teaching material, including video, as well as maintaining a website. My skillset should be a perfect fit.)

Writing has been going well. I'm afraid there is some waffling and back and forth - but that is actually normal for the situation my MCs are in right now. I will dial up the drama soon.

Weather was very hot yesterday (over 28C), but it has cooled down nicely. It's also cloudy today. No real chance for rain which would be much needed.

Wishing you a happy day and much writing! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I hope the info is helpful. I've had company since last Thursday, and they should be going home tomorrow. They brought their cat, who has been into everything. Me and the dog will enjoy being alone once again.

Jox: I hope the company was fun, despite the cat. That must have been a bit of a challenge, especially for your dog.

Thank you for the link. Yes, I'm aware of the podcast. I love Lindsay Buroker. I think she's rather awesome, and she has a marketing background. That shows in her success.

Today will be interesting. Since I'll go out for dinner tonight, I have to write in my afternoon. That is a deviation from my habit, so I'll see how well that goes. I also suspect I'll be glued to FB today.

I have taken tomorrow off, and I'm looking forward to a long weekend.

Wishing you lots and lots of writing! emoticon emoticon emoticon
