Some Days It Just Doesn’t Work…

…my brain that is.

You Can Do ItI did manage to make some changes to the Theme of this page again today in my journey through Blogging 101 but that is about I managed to accomplish that was productive all.

Because I can’t seem to make sense out of anything today I will just direct you to a great blog I read a couple of weeks ago.  I am working toward incorporating the idea in it into my life because I know it works.  I have tried it before but this time I will make some adjustments that should support my effort.  I bought a white board to hang in the office for myself so I can see it and I will find a way to display it on my phone and computer screen as well.

Note to self:  Don’t let your blood pressure meds run out again.


About Peggy Guiler

You just never know what show up on my blog. As the name implies it is about the stuff of life just like Spilt Milk. Everyday events spark thought and contemplation. Special events in the community, the country or the world may strike a cord and get me talking. Sometimes it's about people in my life or circumstances, sometimes about my garden, sometimes about a book or a political issue. Always it's about something I am passionate about. In my business, River of Hope Enterprises (, I work as an "Certified Coach" (International Coach Federation), a trainer, consultant and speaker. and as a spiritual director. I also drive a school bus to keep the wolf from the door while I build my business. I love the kids on the bus (most of the time). My family is grown and I have three grandkids who thrill my heart but I don't get to see any of them very often. Circumstances of life have made "family" difficult. My son died by suicide at age 16 in 2000 and the strain on our family relationships since has been huge. Mental health is a field where I worked for almost 22 years and where I still do some consulting and training. That combined with my own battle with depression and my son's death weave together to form some of my greatest soap box items: suicide intervention, suicide bereavement and peer support in mental health are right on the top of my list. Social justice is an underlying passion. Keeping the wolf from the door as a single parent was full-time work and my career path as a journalists was augmented with cleaning contracts, cooking, retail clerk, and bartending. I have known hard work and am grateful for the experience and perspective it has given me. A firmly grounded faith and a passion for learning has now taken me toward a new field as a Spiritual Director and I am soon adding to that a license to marry people. As I move toward retirement I am very aware that I have to keep working so I chose to do things which will meet my modest financial needs and also my love of supporting people in their life journey. Woven into all of this is my love of writing. Trained as a Journalist, and having worked in the field as a freelance news writer for many years, I have a great love for writing. This blog is a new beginning for me. As I hone my skills and begin to form a daily discipline of writing I hope it will lead to more writing in the future.

    Hi Peggy 🙂

    This post is very useful because we all feel lack of motivation in our day to day lives and I ckecked out the link which lead to a beautiful article which has a lot of information on how motiavtional quotes actually work. I have used such motivation in my daily routines.

    I used to read certain quotes again and again everyday when I was young and they got instilled in my memory/subconscious gradually. I feel this is how they work—it’s positive programming.

    I hope you stay motivated.

    I have felt so uninspired in everything this week. I did manage to get my Words Crush Wednesday post up, it’s great filler and relieves some of the guilt for being lazy this week. I’ll definately have to follow the link and see what might get me feeling motivated again. 🙂 Be well.
