Give Up or Live Up, the Follow-Through

Many of you joined my rally cry the other week and proclaimed "Live up!" with me. I have been living up a little more than usual, but I need to take it to the next level. I am going to use the motto to define my goals each week.


-I have been meaning to track hours spent writing, online, being happy, etc., but I just don't have time. Uh, give up.
-I will start tracking the things mentioned above today. Yay, live up!


-I have not defined a WiP and I am sucking at writing right now, so I'm just gonna quit for the week. Give up.
-Between sixteen different projects, I wrote 21,500 words in September, I will be proud of that, even if it's not defined. Holla! Live up!


-I am getting fat. Give up.
-I am getting my ass on that bike. Live up!


I am so totes going to live it up this week. You two?


My sis took this pic at the marina, totally had to share it with you.

  11. JONATHON: I was losing a TON of hair all at once, for a reason too lengthy to mention. Of course, I was upset about this, but then daughters and I went shopping and you know what? Hats rock! I have so many hats now. And the hair loss thing has slowed down (let's hope that continues), but either way, I have hats! Live Up!

    Congrats on the huge word count in September! Mine was 0. But I'm not giving that up, yet. I started writing again, and it feels GOOD.

    "I will be proud of that, even if it's not defined..." Jon, you wrote a lot! Who needs it to be defined? You're doing the work and that's awesome. That's enough. You rock!
