The web site for Susan Rose...writer and business tycoon

Welcome to RoseBud, the site where inquiring minds can find out what's new with me, Susan Rose. I started this site to keep my friends and family up-to-date on the progress of my novel, Confessions of a Frog Kisser. Since publishing the book, this site has morphed into whatever I feel like making it at any given time! To find out a little more about me and my goings on, take a look through the site. I'd love to hear from you, especially if I say something in the blog that strikes a chord. So drop me a line anytime.

Keeping My Head Above Water...Maybe

Life has become a bit of a juggling act these days, something that seems to be epedimic. Every time I talk to a friend, we compare notes on how insane things are. I won't go into the details of the myriad things stretching me in a million directions...I'll just start hyperventilating again (and no, I have no idea if I spelled that correctly).

Right now, I'm working on psyching myself up to head out in the drizzle and tackle Beltway rushhour traffic for two meetings in Bethesda. I'm looking forward to both meetings: the first is with two collegues from the design world who I'm interviewing for an article. The second is with a potential Arbonne business builder who has literally fallen in my lap. Both are things to cheer about. I just have to get through that commute first. But maybe people are working at home today to avoid the bad weather. Or maybe I'll be able to leave late enough to miss the worst of it. The drive will be pleasant, the drive will be pleasant, the drive will be pleasant.

Yep, mantras and positive self talk have become one way I deal with my spastic life. Pizza, popcorn, and chocolate are the other. I especially need to use these mantras when I know I'm not going to get to go to yoga. And today I think I'm not going to get to go to yoga. Sigh.

How do you deal with the insanity of life? I'm very curious about what people do to keep their head above water, and how they focus on healthy things rather than self destructive (self destructive being the pizza).

Hi! Susan,

I just read this blog post of yours and it's the first time I've visited your blog(quite by chance). I'm not sure what made me stop at this particular write up. But, I did and I'm responding to you.

I like you style of writing. It seemed very pleasant, with a light content.It maybe too early to form an opinion on your writing style. But, I'm conveying to you what I first felt.

Taking the literal meaning of the title of this blog post, a human body is structured such that the air-filled lungs are on top so that naturally the body tends to float top up, with the heavy; muscle filled legs below. I've heard swimming experts say that if a person relaxes all his muscles in water, that he'll float without an effort.

Talking figuratively, I think sometimes we get way too worked up about things and events in life and we struggle to stay afloat. But, if we remember to relax and learn to use the natural buoyancy of life-, we might even start enjoying the process and learn to swim elegantly.

At this point, I will take the pleasure of inviting you to visit my blog :

Thank you!
