Changing your location, changes your attitude!

 This past year I have had the privilege of teaching some extraordinary men and women throughout my classes here in my office in Palm Desert, as well as the classes I teach at Inter Valley Health Plan and even the classes that I have taught on my travels.

One of my students that I love and treasure has given me so many special gifts since I have been her instructor and her friend.  One gift is the use of her family’s home on the ocean in San Pedro.

This past week I spent 4 days with her and another special friend and we had a great time celebrating her birthday.

The gift of being her guest at this beautiful home overlooking the ocean is breathtaking.  I feel so fortunate and blessed to have the opportunity to knock out some of my writing projects in such a beautiful location.

Friendship is the best gift of all, but opportunities that come my way this year in so many forms of good deeds from my students and friends makes me forever grateful.

I am grateful to each and every life that I have taught, from your kind words to your thoughtfulness in so many ways makes me humble.

If your writing has become blocked, try writing in a different location.  Take your laptop or notepad and pen to another location in your house or head to a secluded quiet nature preserve, or into a noisy coffee shop.  See where you go and what happens differently in your writing.  You will be glad you did!
