Why it is Critically Important to Toot Our Horns

Now, it’s up to you about where or how loud you toot your horn. On your blog, Facebook, Twitter, or if you can work it out with FAA, maybe they’ll help you toot your horn across the sky. Imagine that? Seeing each other’s accomplishments written across the sky.

And yes, this may sound different, but wait until you hear the rest of this... the few ground rules if you’re trying to figure out what to toot.

You know how you hear all of this talk about success? Welp, as I'm doing right here, it doesn't matter what your blog is about, grab a scrap of paper, or a whole unused 380-page spiral notebook, or simply open a blank document, and write or type til your fingertips go numb all of your accomplishments. It’s that simple, and trust me, it's very easy to do. Your fingers will be tired before you know it. A whole lot of us are doing a lot more than we're giving ourselves credit for.

For instance...

Figured out how to start a blog, and are now blogging? That’s a TooT!
Won a karaoke contest back in 2000? Check!!! That’s another valid TOOT!
Ever won a bingo game? Bingo! That’s a TOOT!

Won a lotto? And it could’ve been a scratcher, $300, or the MEGA LOTTO-LOTTO! TooT! TOOT! Toot your horn!

Got your kids through school and into college? You better toot that horn! Here, TOOT! TOOT! I’m not shamed. I’ll toot your horn for you!

Heck, did you just get one kid out of the house and on their own! TooT! TooT!
Open your own salon? TooT! TooT!
Just hired!?! TOOT! TOOT!

Wrote a book!?! TOOT! TOOT!
Wrote 9,10, 11, heck… a hundred books or more… TOOT! TOOT! TOOT! TOOT! TOOT! TOOT!

Gave birth to a life? TOOT! TOOT!
Saved a Life? TOOT! TOOT!

Bought a car? …Or a home? Or how about, built a home? Ever in your life promoted? Just ordained? Or what about baptized? Completed graduate school? Passed the bar? Earned a medical license? Opened a practice? There’s no success, big or small, that doesn’t qualify for the TooT! TooT! TooT! TOOT your horn!

The point in this exercise is that every day millions of us are accomplishing successes that are taken for granted. Don’t let the Lords tell you what is and isn’t successful, or how loud to toot your horn. Whenever you find a place to toot, TOOT!

The reason it is important to TOOT! TOOT! TOOT our accomplishments, is to let our successes be contagious. Doing this isn't for you, but for us.

Help unblock our blessings and TOOT! TOOT! TOOT! Toot your horn LOUD, LONG, and ALWAYS!

Genuine Women Rock!

Funny thing about genuine women is they rarely say much when first meeting one. Oh, she’ll look me up and down, sizing me up I’m guessing, taking in most of what she thinks she sees before ever imparting any real piece of her mind. Gossip is just not her thing; mines neither, which is why when she unleashes one of them pearls of wisdom, Baby Look Out, I know this is a Woman Who Rocks!
Genuine Women are as Compassionate as Passionate

Doesn’t mean she won’t make mistakes, do wrong, be wrong, get mad and have those bad days. We all have our hard days, ugly ways. Name a human who doesn't. And still, turning the dial back upbeat, I know one-hundred-ten percent a genuine woman’s words are not cheap.

A Toast to the Writing Resolution Blog Hop Ball

I've been waiting to attend this ball all year, and now here it is…the perfect spot to slip in another Top Ten list, and call it my writing resolutions.
Before …oh boy…I get started, please know that Meg Waite-Clayton at 1stbooks is hosting the blogger ball. All the rules can be found (and followed) by clicking the icon pic in my caption, which also should be your caption as well. But before you get to clicking, here are my writing resolutions going into the New Year.

SHEWRITES Blogger's Ball #7 – YipYip HOORaY!!!

I think Meg Waite Clayton, who takes time out of her very literate busy schedule to host this ball, must really see me over here toggling this and that. Seems like it never fails, just when I'm about to drop a ball, up pops Meg hosting a ball. Of course, and please know, I don't really believe this. I already know the blogger balls come highly requested by SHEWRITERS, but can't deny that I, too, love the timing of each one thrown.
With over $#!$# projects going, not inclusive of other dependabilities begging my attention, I tried to avoid putting up the old 'Away on Vacation' notice. And rather than explain any more of that here, let me jump right into blasting this small pep of encouragement for those steeped in the writing process, and to writers everywhere.
If you're starting to hear a little whining about the time you spend writing, and blogging, to this is what I have to say. "Write on Writers." To my family, and perhaps to those who've been…
