Sh*t Happens … And it is all good.

Last night my office roof collapsed and my office and bedroom were flooded. This was just another event in a long, long string of events. Just a week ago it was my car that broke down. Before that it was the accident that I had while being towed, and then the car...

Operation Awesome

My business has improved over the last year in leaps and bounds compared to 2013. I made some significant changes during 2014 and they have paid off. I still have challenges to overcome though and my income is not at a level where it can sustain me consistently on a...

Honesty is the best policy. Or is it?

Recently I was asked to leave a Facebook group because I posted a two star review on an author’s book on Amazon. The administrator of the group had very valid reasons for asking me to leave as he considers his group a support group and he felt that my review...

When You Feel Like Giving Up

This morning at 4am I woke up from one of my nightmares that happen now and then. I have no idea what the dream was about, but I woke up sobbing my heart out, and a sense of complete and utter dread that overwhelmed me and left me gasping for air. I lay there trying...

Who Defines Your Success?

  My life is a success! It’s not defined by what you think is success, but by what I think of as success. My life is not a success because I have a stable income, or own my own house, drive a fancy car or take long expensive holidays whenever the mood takes me....

Who Will You Spend Time with This Year?

As I reflect back on the year-from-hell I noticed that I had cleared a lot of relationship clutter from my mental closet. I reluctantly released those relationships that were draining me and causing me pain. I say reluctantly because they are people I care about, but...

All it takes is three words

During October this year I had a major falling out with someone over an incident involving my son. In my rage and indignation I vomited my disgust out on Facebook. This is an excerpt of what I posted at the time. “What kind of woman leaves a child behind at...

A letter addressed to the year 2014

It is sometimes suggested that you write a letter to yourself as a younger person, letting the younger ‘you’ know what became of their dreams, hopes and aspirations. I cannot see the point of that. That young, idealistic and naive Diana is long gone. What is left is...
A Fire Walk? Are You Loco?

A Fire Walk? Are You Loco?

‘Loco’ was just one of the adjectives that I received today after posting some photos on Facebook about the fire walk I did last night. So why did I do it? At the beginning of the year I went through a very bad patch in my life and I wanted to do something that would...
I have a Plan. Do You?

I have a Plan. Do You?

A few months ago I made a decision that I needed to setup multiple streams of income and they needed to be done fast. The goal is that in 10 year’s I have multiple sites or businesses that are generating revenue without too much day-to-day work being involved....
