How to Manage Your Mindset

When you feel like giving up turn to your tribe to help you manage your mindset.

We are nearing the end of November which means my mind is already on the New Year because if you’ve been following me and my blog for years you know I live by the motto “December is the new January.” Don’t wait until January 1 to work on your 2018 goals. Start now.

Last week I shared 3 things I believe you should do before 2018 to make next year a successful one. I believe you need to get clear on your vision, your worldview, and your goals. But I left out a very important step, perhaps the most important step. And if you don’t do this thing doing the other three won’t matter.

Before 2018 you must learn to manage your mindset. And here’s how I think you can do that.


How to Develop a Writing Ritual

Time management, or the lack thereof, is the #1 problem faced by most of the writers and bloggers of the See Jane Write community and probably the #1 problem faced by writers and bloggers in every community! The other obstacle that many content creators face is writer’s block. I believe I’ve found a simple solution for both: Write every day. You need to develop a writing ritual.

You need a time, a place, and a plan for each of your daily writing sessions.

My Holiday Wish List

It’s that time of year when close friends and family start to ask me what I want for Christmas and being a blogger makes it easy for me to answer. I simply write a blog post about my holiday wish list and share the link. So here goes…

FitBit Bracelet

This year I lost 20 pounds and I believe it was my FitBit that helped me accomplish this goal. I am obsessed with tracking my steps. I never want to take off my FitBit, not even when I need to be extra chic for a swanky blogger event. With this gold-plated bracelet, my FitBit will no longer clash with my outfits.


5 Things That Made Me a Happy Feminist This Week

Having a SOL Dance Experience with the ladies of See Jane Write was the highlight of my week.

Being a happy feminist has felt nearly impossible these days, for reasons that are obvious to anyone who keeps up with the news. And as we learn of more and more women who have suffered sexual assault by male politicians and celebrities, what’s almost just as enraging is the “Why is she just now coming forward?” bullshit that so many people — including other women — are saying in response to the allegations.

But the purpose of this post is to add a little happiness to your day, so I’ll step down from my soapbox and share with you 5 things that added a bit of joy to my week.
