when your ducks don’t line up


The excuses have run out and I am finally taking action.

Back in December I started my official website, the one I had been wanting to create for way too long using my name as the URL and that would not have any advertising (unless I were to choose to advertise). I sought and received help with all the technical stuff that I still don’t understand. All of my posts were uploaded onto the new site and things were pretty much ready to roll… Except that somehow I thought all my ducks had to be in a row.

Why is it we humans like to get our ducks all in a row before we are able to do new and uncomfortable things?  I don’t know the answer except that maybe we think if everything is just right, our chances of success will be greater.

Six months later my ducks are still not lined up. The stars and planets haven’t come into alignment either.  In fact, this seems like a terrible time to say “SCREW IT” and just announce my new website.

Sometimes you have to just let your ducks be a mess and move forward without them.
They will eventually catch up.

Today I proudly announce my blog, i choose gratefulness at

I feel a little bit famous.
I feel a LOT scared.
My name is now attached to this crazy woman’s heart and thoughts written in blog posts.
And I am ready to take the comments, the compliments AND the criticism.
In fact, I welcome them.

Stop by and take a look around.

I am truly grateful that you would take the time to read my words.
