Feeling a sense of accomplishment – my new novel


Share this :   | | | |

Too often, we get so busy with our humongous lists of things to do, that we fail to pause (let alone stop) and recognize our accomplishments. Aside from missing out on the fun of doing just that, we also can cheat ourselves out of a sense of satisfaction with our lives.

Part of managing your stress level is to find balance in your life. To pace yourself. To have silly fun times as well as the more serious focused times. So whether your most recent accomplishment is a new book, a video for your blog, a chocolate cake made from scratch (what the heck, celebrate even if you used a boxed mix)… learn to pat yourself on the back.

If you’re active in any of the social media like Facebook and Twitter, go ahead and post a quick blurb about what you’ve done. It really feels good to be part of the human race, instead of plodding along working like a drone and not even letting others know what is going on in your life.

So, ahem, I’d like to announce my supernatural mystery novel, called “The Calico Tapestry” — it’s now available in paperback at amazon.com and you can buy it by clicking now: The Calico Tapestry

Hi Evelyn,

Congratulations on your new book. It must give you a sense of accomplishment to publish a book. I think most people have at least one book in them, but never get around to writing it. Sitting with a blank page in front of you and ending up with a book is a real "piece of work".

I agree that happiness is an inside job, and I think that God is in charge of the inside as well as the outside. Remember the saying, "If Mom isn't happy, NOBODY is happy"?. That applies infinite fold to God.
