Typically, people dread Mondays. While I do not dread them, Mondays are not my favorite day of the week. HOWEVER, today is a great Monday! As the counter states, “Paul’s Heart” has had over 50,000 views officially this past weekend. Among some of the other stats that I have completely not remembered, I have published 764 posts (765 including this one). There are 252 more posts in draft form, and hundreds that are just prompts. And then there are more than a dozen published stories and articles that I have share on this site. So many readers have either commented or written me with questions, situations, seeking advice, or simply just to say, “yeah, I totally get that.”
Just some of the topics that I cover regularly:
- cancer and survivorship
- parental alienation
I am driven by the expression, “those who cannot do, teach.” Because I am a cancer survivor, I cannot donate blood or organs. Because of cancer treatments, I discovered the world of adoption. I have taken on discrimination and won. I do not tolerate bullying at all.
But my one goal with “Paul’s Heart” has not been met yet. Actually writing a book. I have begun the process many times, each with a different concept or approach. The only conclusion that I can reach as to why, is that I have not experienced yet, that one key moment that will either be the beginning, the focus, or the conclusion of such an endeavor.
In the meantime, I will keep writing about things I cannot do, but can help. I will continue to be a voice for those that do not have the ability or confidence. I will research and find answers, point in directions where to find answers.
I will also keep looking for, and printing guest stories from you, the readers.
From the bottom of my most grateful heart, thank you to all of you who have read, shared, and appreciated “Paul’s Heart” over the years.
