When the going gets tough; The tough get going. This old saying always boost my resiliency.
Times are tough all over for most people. Even though we blame the economy and the pandemic — there’s more to it than that.

Webster’s definition is…
Yes, I'm that kind of person. I like to write while inspired, which certain music (country classic) gets me like that. I like to write when I want to, not forced out of bed early early or stay up late at night writing. I get discouraged trying to force those habits on myself. But I do realize being consistent is very important with any writier.
Whether you are the kind of person who likes to have a daily routine, or batch content at once, do whatever feels right for you. Listen to your body, to ideas that come to you, and use those surges of inspiration to write.
I loved your flowers. They made me smile for a moment. I too am a gardner. It's one of my passions. So, I would like to share a tip with you. IF you buy a sack of gardening soil (like Mircle Grow) and lay it down and cut an oblong shape out of it and plant some lettuce or spinach seeds in it, then all you have to do is water it. IF you see any bugs just spray them with garlic water. That's it. If it gets cold, then cover them up with a blanket or better a see through plastic container.

I'm still searching what what works best for my life style.

the definition of a successful person; is someone who finds happiness.
… life is good when you work on yourself — not when you get recognition. Hard times will define you. But you have to embrace the struggle and become friends with yourself. Accept who you are and own it. Never allow the desire for success to define you. That won’t make you a better person.
I’ve fantasized all my life. First I became a big dreamer, then a skilled fantasizer. What does this look like?
As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been a dreamer. It must have started in my early childhood. Is that natural? I think so, because dreaming is a precursor to creativity.
Because I’m good at daydreaming, it sparks my enthusiasm to live an exciting life, that leads me to fantasize.
Based on Merriam-Webster dictionary the definition of fantasizing means: indulge in daydreaming about something desired. Do you consciously daydream about something that you desire? What sparks your desires?
After being laid off from my job due to Covid-19, I’ve had a struggle like thousands of other Americans. Even though, I had a small savings to carry me for a while, and I appreciated the unemployment checks while they lasted, I’m facing some serious financial decisions for my future well-being.
After thinking through my various options, working from home seems like the best choice to me. It’s a shift that mainly takes some soul searching to manage my schedule and stay on task and avoid distractions.
