What a Ride!

Have you ever wondered at the turn of events that one encounters on their journey through this life? We start out with such great intentions and then, whoosh, we get waylaid. This blog is a case in point. My first passion is writing and while I have completed two more NaNoWriMo novels, I’m not any closer to having any of my novels published.

While I publish articles and other pieces virtually every day at my 8 to 5 job, personally, I just haven’t made any headway on the novel front. Why? you ask. Well, let’s just say that my focus has broadened significantly over the past couple of years. I have now taken on photography, which has also been integrated into my work life. I am doing all of the advertising, media, and website/blog information for my department, which incorporates both my writing and photography and graphics skills.

Then, to add to the chaos, I have also been focusing on my health and wellness, changing my eating and exercising. My goal is to be healthy and vital until I am at least 120 years old! I’m not quite halfway there, so my kids better look out! Given that I’m an adrenaline junkie with a love for speed

As part of this wellness journey, I’ve just discovered Young Living Essential Oil products. We have all used essential oil based products all of our lives, but never connected the dots. What a change these have made. I totally love their cleaning products, but the oils themselves, are the best in the world. Yes, I’ve done my research and then some. What a difference they have made in the health of my family and our furry ones.

I feel I have been on an incredible learning journey. From improving my writing, to learning to use a DSLR camera, to using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, to building media and websites, to health and wellness, I have been on one heck of a ride. I sure hope it continues!
