On top of striving to be happy each day, this lady begins each 24 with intent, focusing on filling those hours I am allotted in the pursuit of such as you see in this status…… Love, Grace and Gratitude. Such a simple quest, oui? The pursuit of constant daily happiness. It seems so easy. Life, however, presents its argument in ALL our lives. None of us is immune. It is how we handle it that counts. Perhaps we should all take ourselves TO that happy place–rather than waiting for it to come to us. Starting at 10 A.M. July 14, 2017, this quest begins anew. As it will on July 15th..And the 16th.. How fortunate I am to have had a mother who taught me this profound truth. Since the dawn of recognition of self and a purpose in living at age 7, because OF HER GIFT I have always had intent and focus on that end from the moment I arise each day. Usually, SOMEHOW, SOMEWHERE, I find it to some degree, if only in tiny miracles and unexpected places. In my existence, I have grown to expect serendipity.. Life and all it’s foibles and pitfalls is ours to […]
I FORGET SOME DAYS THAT I AM A PUBLISHED AUTHOR for I have stepped away from it, giving in to the emotion of fear of rejection simply because my first novel has not been a smashing success. Units sold wise, that is. Albeit, my reviews have been fabulous. From what I have been told, countless times, many who DO read Call me J, book one of my Holy Snappin’ Trilogy, are bereft as they take in that last sentence. They WANT protagonist Annie to continue on in their lives! It’s a thing every writer craves. We all dream about Readers falling in love with our characters. Still…… YOU who are reading this and nodding your heads will understand as you read on. You who are, like me, a dreaded ‘indie author’ who sweats the same blood as a ‘REAL” published author, then sweats even more blood once it becomes a reality. An actual BOOK book. Yep, you. YOU know what I mean here. I digress. Back to the point at hand.. How cowardly of me to be fearful. It is so unlike the writer that I was that produced the manuscript in the first place. SO. Going along with what […]
You that know me intimately know I live by this credo and i encourage YOU to risk–to take chances–to step out of your comfort zone and DO life–rather than let life do YOU. Don’t accept anything less than what you aspire to and when you risk and things turn out differently than you hoped, be thrilled that you risked in the first place! And proud of yourself, to boot! .. Don’t wait for the ”right time” for the right time never comes…Life goes by like a flash..Trust me. Change of the status quo is alwayyssss scary as hell–always.Self doubt reigns supreme..I promise that part. HOWEVER–we get one kick at this cat called life.. If we have been accepting of unhappiness, restlessness, dissatisfaction–at home, at work, in relationships..then the onus is on us to make things happen to change that. Or–accept and live–unhappily, unsatisfied and wanting. The choice is 100%—-ours. Onwards from Pammyland.
ADMIT IT…. Sometimes you think it.. Don’ch’a?? And guess what…You CAN be as free as you allow yourself to be. Honest! My entire life I was a driven business woman, .Professional to the max for those who knew me in real-time. But, luckily, I can also attach entrepreneur to my name which allowed me to be a pioneer of sort in whatever way I was willing to risk, WORK MY PATOOTIE OFF and have faith–And you can TOO! It’s all a choice, after all….TRUTH! I now choose to be a free spirit– Sometimes it raises eyebrows.. Many times I’m judged for it cause I’m a SENIOR , after all!!! And, as a senior, I should practice decorum and fit in the mold folks think ‘old people’ should fit in.. But then–I often feel all–BETTY WHITE!! and EVERYBODY loves Betty White!! And it feels GREAT!!! Join me in my free spiritedness and if you got a long way to go before you can–PLAN TO.. Get up each day and be grateful you did with all your facilities –and plan to be simply —happy.. For one more day. It’s that simple….:)))))) Onwards..
Hey Gang. A great image of My PURPOSE tree! In my daily life and with ongoing growth within that life I practice IINTENT. Then I focus. Then I manifest.. SOOOO -today I am thrilled and honoured to be asked by my new company to do a phone training to inspire a new hire in the area.. Jonathan, my local manager, said they were so happy with my performance and that I was doing such a fantastic job that they have entrusted a brand new recruit to my final words before her first shift. Yep–It feels GRAND to be back to a place I can inspire again. Just grand..:)) @BoomerNovel
FALL—another autumn is upon us… The Time is NOW–to do that thing for… ~~~ ~~~Tomorrow.. We wake up at 20- on the cusp of adulthood– We are fierce and bold and ready.. but frightened at… the big world out there.. and all the choices we must now make. We wake up at 30- full of bravado!!! Finally, we are fully human. Finally we have the reins! 100% responsible for ourselves.. with a job, a house, kids and a dog. We have our entire LIVES ahead of us, after all, oui? We wake up at 40. FORTY? How the heck did THAT happen? We haven’t got near what we wanted done done yet! But we feel great! We feel powerful and in control. The cracks have begun to take their toll, though with life getting—complicated.. That happiness everyone sings about on the radio– —elusive –as are the riches and comfort we KNEW we would enjoy back at 30… We wake up at 50–incredulous. FIFTY? WTHELL? We were 30, like, YESTERDAY, right? But we FEEL 30 in our brains. Our SOULS feel 30. We THINK as 30! However–There ARE perks. Like grandkids.. and collections of-stuff. Our happiness quotient–has shifted. Different things make […]
****I never really realized it before until I started going deep within our family and looking at us as a whole as a non-partisan writer..in particular in the Holy snappin’ trilogy- and Call me J where she lost her life to murder at age 49. .but, my mother, Pat Linington-Kovack, was an amazing philosopher.. She was ‘just a little farm wife”, raising her 6 kids, jobs on the side as she looked after her brood. The classic mother-female of the 50s and 60’s. But, as she was busy just being her, Mom talked to me–she looked at me and loved me and talked to me, even when I was in my tender years. I began to pay attention when I was in my 7th year. And I remember.. One of the hundreds of infinite number of little nuggets she imparted to me as this kid was that, in years to come, when I grew up, I should never, EVER hesitate in life–I can see her now as she said ‘You will understand when the time comes, Pammy.” She said that, when I felt a burning inside, and a need for something I should start planning that SECOND how I was going […]
My dime today.. Sometimes it DOES take incredible dedication to look at some periods of our lives and try to find the why’s and turn them into why NOTS!!??– For if we have no boulders in our paths, no demons to slay, who are we in character in the end?? Life is full of defining moments–it is up to us to choose our responses and our acceptance of things that are thus…..the good old lemons-lemonade mantra..:)))) Over the decades in Pammyland I have discovered that if i call myself up short when I stress and look at things in a negative and yell STOP in my head– well danged if these fears and stresses and emotional reactions can be flipped completely around into an incredibly healing and empowering moment. Some of it is based on our own mental and emotional health but much is in the support and love of others in our lives who help us find the strength to face these everyday monsters and conquer. Thank you, yet again, my Earth Angels. And my unearthly ones, too. Onwards @BoomerNovel

You must follow through with the plan and Be fearless— Be fierce Be tenacious Be you… Not what others think you should be. BE a bona fide!
