New Year – No Resolutions – Just More of the Same

First of all, don’t get me wrong. I don’t make resolutions. Every day – every day – is a new day. I don’t wait for January 1st to improve my thinking, or swear off a bad habit, or start the diet ( you know, the one that will finally work!), or try to be a better person. I no more give dates on a calendar that level of importance on how to improve my life than I do the hour of the day to decide when I need to eat. If my stomach grumbles, I nosh.  I don’t wait for February 14th to tell my husband I love him and my daughter doesn’t wait for Mother’s Day to show her appreciation.

We take it as it comes.

What I do try to work on is my minute to minute thought process.  As I get older and closer to what I presume is menopause, I find it’s easier for me to snap. I get more irritable much easier and my new diet is composed of all the heads I bite off without warning.  Whether my imbalance is hormonal or not, I am trying to consciously make healthier choices.  I’ve spent my whole life allowing knee-jerk reactions to take precedence, so un-learning that behavior is new and just a bit challenging. 

It’s also so easy to blame others for making me feel lousy, but I know better. No one can make me feel anything unless I want to give them that kind of power. Everyone around me is a catalyst; what they do, what they say, how they behave can provoke my thoughts. I can observe all around me but ultimately how I feel and respond is entirely up to me. It’s my choice.

So for now, I will try to choose balanced, loving and moderately sane behavior. Until I get my period…

Discovering Arugula is available on Kindle!

Book Two in the Who Got Liz Gardner series – Discovering Arugula – is now available on Kindle/Amazon.com both in the US and the UK.  The paperback is still at the publishers but should be out before Christmas if all goes according to plan.

As mentioned in an earlier post, there was a SIGNIFICANT change to the third edition of WGLG. Eric Allen is now Eric Alexander.

It was my deliberate intention to picque reader curiousity by using my real maiden name + my husband’s real name, Eric Allen, thus = Elizabeth Allen “Hey, that’s the author’s name!” As a result, most readers would determine that Liz and the characters are mostly real. And so they have. Readers and critics alike.
Unfortunately, the revelation has intruded on the personal and private lives of me and my family.
It is for this reason alone that I have changed Eric’s last name to Alexander in the third and all future editions of WGLG as well as Discovering Arugula.
For my existing fans, nothing else whatsoever has changed. It’s just a name and afterall, what’s in a name?
