Rambling about current events
Hello, hello, hello! I’m happy to announce that “In the Moment
,” my new article, was just published on Thrive Global. The joy that I feel every time one of my articles gets published is unwavering. Every single time I get that e-mail from the editor stating that “your article is now live on Thrive Global,” I want to dance, run all over the house, and text everyone that I know to share the great news. That feeling immediately awakens my inner child, something we all have inside us. It is something that, after work, family, and responsibility, we all forget about.
So, yes, it is a huge boost of “I can do this” happiness. Self confidence.
During my years working in education, I always reminded my students to believe and achieve in life. Here I am, at my age now, still striving to achieve new goals and follow dreams. One of my current goals is to be published by The New York Times or the The Washington Post. I got close two months ago. The Washington Post liked one of my queries.
I’m the happiest when I am working on multiple projects. Without any projects, I feel restless and unhappy. I guess our brains are programmed to need work in order to feel happy? Who knows? Maybe that will be a new article someday. Maybe, with the help of my friend, psychologist Dennis Ramos, we will be able to understand more on that.
As for now, I’m currently, working on a new article that I feel very passionately about, and I can’t wait to share it with the world. It is called “How Loneliness and Depression is Affecting our Elderly.” Yes, I know, it is certainly a sad subject.
What we might think is a normal part of the aging process may not be normal at all, according to the CDC. To help our elderly be happier in their golden years, there are some stigmas we, as a society, need to understand and change. I was surprised by what I learned.
Stay tuned. I will submit that article after the holidays.
I hope everyone had a great Halloween. I did not get a chance to dress up, but I will do so next year. I promise!
We certainly had an awesome time, just us as a family, blasting Halloween music while my husband grilled some delicious steaks. The perfect holiday atmosphere flowed all through the house. I also made our favorite Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread, a Halloween tradition of ours.
Okay, it is time to wrap things up and go on with my day. Leave a comment below to share some of your favorite Halloween traditions.
Thanks for reading, talk to you soon!
