Share Your World – October 30, 2017


Share Your World – OCTOBER 30th, 2017

Where do you eat breakfast? Usually I eat breakfast at the kitchen counter or at my computer desk.

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want have a evening with? Stephen King.

If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be? A beautiful, colorful blooming plant.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. My father doing his best to do his faith healing and divine intervention on my physical ailments.

About “Tessa Can Do It! Positivity is Catching!”


As I have announced I am combining my 2 blogs into one. All of my writing will still be  part of my blogging, but it will just be on one blog. The original writer’s blog will still be there, there just won’t be any new work added to it, but there is plenty there to read and most of my life stories are actually on there under non-fiction. Another reason I wanted to have just one blog.

The more I thought about it the more I realized that “Tessa Can Do It” describes everything I write about so why have more than one blog. Plus trying to figure out what to put on which blog was becoming annoying. Whatever it is, Tessa Can Do It!

I was writing for International Bipolar Foundation, but I finally quit. They are rude, they don’t bother to answer emails. I write for them for free, but they can’t even take the time to let me know if they are interested in the article post or not. If they don’t want it I can certainly use it on my blog. Mental health is a large part of my life and I write my own posts on it besides finding info online to share about mental and physical health. I don’t need to deal with people who are as far as I am concerned, rude. They started out ok  and then started going downhill, changed staff and got worse. When you use free articles as the mainstay of your blog, you treat those people with respect. I personally am tired of it. They don’t deserve my writing. At first it stroked my ego to see my writing on what I thought was a major contender in the mental health field. Now I am tired of being treated without respect. I wrote 3 emails, same subject, several  weeks to months apart and not one of them received an answer. That is rude and non-businesslike. I don’t need the aggravation. My work is back to being my work.

They probably don’t even realize I quit since they don’t seem to bother reading their email. We had a schedule and I gave them plenty of notice that I won’t be writing for them anymore. If they don’t know it, that is their problem, not mine.

Jazzy suit.

The site in the woods.

Rates charged,

Show begins.

The smooth red curtain hanging.

Rises right on time.
