Valentine's Day

It is a beautiful sunny day in New York and what I plan to do for my Valentine's Day is to relax and enjoy my solitude. 2009 had been a rough year with the loss of my mother, the loss of my job and the loss of my guy I was seeing. Even with all of that piling up in one year, I have to say that I am thankful and very blessed to be alive and healthy. Those are the things than money cannot buy. I have learned to love others and treat them well, but I have also learned to treat myself well and enjoy being alone.

It is funny. I have to say that my writing career has given me this great pleasure of relishing my time alone. In fact, this might just be the best Valentine's Day ever. Wow, how I have grown. What a difference a year makes in your life. Happy Valentine's Day everyone. Love others, but mostly love yourself.

Promoting other's work

Sometimes promoting other people's businesses or projects so they will successful can be good for you. As a writer, I have earned quite a bit of influence in the media and as a result love to share it with others. Whenever I see an interesting story, or know someone having an event, I find that it is a perfect time to write an article about it to spread the word. Word of mouth is a good thing and can work in many different ways as technology changes.

This may seem unconventional, since most people normally want to get the word out about what they are doing or their specific project. This is fine, but perhaps by spreading the word about something someone else is doing, it may help you get the attention you maybe seeking. I have found that this works much better than you think.

Give it a shot. It is always a good time to try something new. Promote someone else and watch your career take off as well.
