On Thanksgiving Day, I enjoyed the day with a run in the morning, horseback riding in the afternoon and a great dinner with friends. I have a lot to be thankful for right now. And the unwavering love of family and dear friends is what I'm most grateful for this year.
I hope you'll support me as I write Jacmuir, a young adult series. It's a epic tale I've been researching and planning for five years. A dream inspired the start of the series and the development of Prince Oastomin so I'm excited to start this journey into the kingdom of Jacmuir. And the best thing about this series is that there's nothing out there like it.
I'm inspired by the children that have touch my life and a young man that adores Labrador Retrievers as much as I do.
Commitment means acting not just when it is convenient or comfortable, but whenever it is necessary.
Commitment means setting priorities and following them without fail.
Commitment is more than words, much more than just saying you will.
Commitment is doing whatever it takes to make it happen.
Commitment is available to anyone who understands and appreciates its value enough to live with it in each and every moment.
Commitment requires no special skill, only sufficient desire, and faith in the virtue of the endeavor.
Commitment goes ahead and gets the job done, even though opinion and circumstances may fight vigorously against it.
Commitment sees things through to completion.
Commitment bears the pains of the moment without becoming dismayed.
Commitment enjoys the pleasures of the journey without becoming sidetracked.
Commitment can be summoned in an instant, and can last for a lifetime.
With true commitment, what you intend is surely what you will be.
~ Ralph Marston
It’s a wonderful Fall day in Jersey. After listening to my colleague speak about her NY marathon race, I’m inspired to do more physically. I’m not sure if the desire will turn into running a half marathon myself or just increasing my cardio activity but she really motivated me to look at what I’m doing for myself.
Last night the tri-state NY/NJ/PA area watched the Yankees and Phillies with bated breathe. Since all of my closest friends are Yankees fans, I’m a biased towards the NY team. I spent the evening having a nice dinner and watching the game in the home of a friend of mine. We had a really great time. It’s just too bad the Yankees will have to play Game Six in the World Series. I really hope they finish this in the Big Apple so the city can come alive.
So after a night of a little sleep, I’m back at work trying to stay focused and work on some reports. Gathering statistics can be tedious but when you sit back and look at the data, it can really blow you away. I’m hoping to prepare a light dinner this evening and do some writing. I need to make up for last night’s festivities. It’s only 1PM and I’ve already started yawning. I need to eat lunch now to make up for the banana and cereal bar I grabbed this morning as I rushed to work. (Low blood sugar could lead to sleeping on my desk. And I don’t want that to happen.)
Hey has anyone ever looked at their lunchtime salad and wished it was a bowl of ice cream? That’s where I am right now but I’m sure the V-8 and spinach salad and feta salad will make me feel better in no time.
That is if I have a fun-sized packet of M&M’s when I’m finished eating.
