Remember when we were in grade school and the first thing our teacher said to do was to write our names at the top of the page? When I wrote Linda on a clean sheet of notebook paper or a test that meant it and all the words written belonged to me, Linda. It meant I alone was responsible for what was written. Of course, teachers gave me grades based on what I wrote.
Last night while twittering, reading blogs, answering email this thought came to me—I need to start over with a clean sheet of paper, and put my name on the top. First, I must give credit to two very sharp, young bloggers who gave me new ideas. Becky reminds people to make a plan at night for the next day. She suggests writing down six priorities, with a plan for accomplishing them. Lisa shares her positive way of life as she deals with RA and MS. She is very encouraging, reminding us that even with those challenges, life is good. She reminded her readers weight lost is possible. (That is my biggest challenge now.)
