Article Is Done

I wrote almost 100% of it yesterday—the day it was due. Then I spent the evening chopping it almost in half to meet the word count. It is HARD to ax good material: last night I felt like I was slashing my way through the jungle with a machete. I’m SOOOOO glad it’s done, or at least, that I’m done with it. I did WAY too much work on it. I wish I knew of a way to parlay the rest of my research into another article on the subject or slightly similar subject. Hmmm… maybe I’ll ponder that.

Now I’m just hoping that all those inspiring stories that I heard about people who exercise despite serious health conditions (to help manage their conditions) will continue to prod me to rise from my office chair and work out regularly.

Dr. Davis said, “The deposits I make today into my bank of health really have to last me through my lifetime. And it really is an issue of choices.”

He also said, “Even those folks who can do only a little bit of exercise, they smile more, they look at you directly in the face more than they did before. They wear clothing that says more about themselves that begins to show that confidence….And people feel that they are beautiful people. It’s an unusual transformation that happens and it doesn’t take very long.”

So far, so good…

    This reminds me of when Nono exhales long and audibly and it makes me feel all relaxed even though she is the one doing it. Do you know what I’m talking about?

    Yep. Another article takes wing! It’s a good thing to be writing: good for me, good for my career. This one was just tough, for some reason.

    Thanks for the encouragement!
