Some people are so “messy”. They like to get in other people’s business and cause trouble in those people’s life when it is really none of their business at all. Messy people thrive on gossip and rumor spreading. They’re never happy unless they do! I try my best to avoid them , not so much in actually avoiding the person but tuning them out and refusing to play into there ploys to start a good juicy tidbit of gossip. We all know at least one “messy ” person . Maybe we know them at work or church or maybe even in our own families . And what would our lives be without them ( and that’s a story for another day) to add such edification to our lives? But we can control how we respond to these people in our own way and thereby control their messiness .

Starting a new adventure can really be slow sometimes. Especially when you are trying to work full-time and blog about a new interest and hopefully a new career in the future. It is amazing what you can do with an iPhone or a laptop. I am still enthused about it and my goal is to make it work for me.

In the past I wrote a lot of letters to friends and loved one with the intent of encouraging them and helping to lift their spirits when they were down or struggling with life’s issues. But, over the years I grew weary of the task realizing that I had become someone who needed encouragement but never seemed to get it in return. So I just stopped. Was that the right thing to do? Maybe not , I don’t know. I do know that it caused a void and a sadness in me that I don’t think I will recover from sometimes. No one seems to care about one another anymore. They just go about their life and never bother to consider anyone else or make an effort to stay in touch . And then there are those who live there life in “cliques”, If you’re not in theirs then you don’t matter.

On a more positive note , I want to make my future a little brighter and challenge myself to put forth more effort and consideration toward others. And although some of this content really doesn’t have anything to do with narrating books it does speak to the fact that I can move on and try to find my niche in the world of blogging.

Narrating Books

At this point in my life I have decided that I want to try book narration . I have begun a 5 day challenge and am on my second day . This is a new adventure for me and I am excited to see where it is going to lead me. I have always loved reading but now I find myself with less time to “pick up” a book much less read it . Therefore, I now listen to books on audio whenever I can. What I like about that is I can listen almost anywhere I choose. Yes, I am looking forward to my new adventures as I learn how to be a narrator.
