The one that really hit, because of everything happening right now, was: “What I Wish I’d Known Before I Sold”. Specifically- No is not a four letter word, but time is. This struck me because- 1) while visiting my son in AK, I felt like I was getting farther and farther behind in work. Even though I did manage to get through three partial subs. But the whole time I felt like I couldn’t work unless they (son and grandchildren) were sleeping. 2) I have both daughters and their combined four children coming to visit for a week and I’m already grumpy knowing I’ll get very little done while they are here. Even though they both understand that I “work” from home. I know if I locked myself in the bedroom and worked, they wouldn’t say a thing, but I’d be feeling guilty the whole time. Since I won’t see the one daughter and her kids until January when I go up to baby sit while she has her third baby.
Right now I am struggling also with saying “No” to anything that may put my name in front of more readers. I won’t list all the things I’ve said yes to in the last two months. But just to warn you, if I am completely batty by April – it’s because I can’t say “No”. The only lesson I hope you all get from this blog is to learn from my stupidity. Learn to say “No” and mean it!
