I Will be so Happy and Proud of Myself When I Finish Writing My Memoir (Daily Word Prompt is Chuckle)

My Loud Bipolar Whispers!

My Loud Bipolar Whispers

I sometimes wonder what people truly think when I tell them I am writing a book, a memoir about my life.

People that know me and know part of my story think it is a great idea. Other people who do not know me well or know my story at all sometimes act like they are impressed, but are they really? Some people do not say anything at all.

Find Yourself A Goal Buddy!

My goal buddy is my wife.  I bounce ideas off of her constantly to test their merit and get feedback.  Conversely, when she is about to begin a new endeavor, I am there for her.  As in all things in our life we make sure we have each other’s backs, no matter what.  She is about to begin the 21 Day Fix and I will be right there with her the entire journey.  I will be making posts about our progress to keep everyone informed as to our opinion of the program and its effectiveness.

Having a “buddy” is essential to success as he/she provides support, encouragement, motivation, etc.  If you do not have one I strongly advise you to begin the process of finding a buddy sooner than later.  Here are some tips:
