A Grateful Writing Life

I am waiting. It’s a common activity for writers. You work on a piece of writing. You finish it. You send it somewhere. You send it to a reader for feedback, you send it to a literary journal for possible publication, or you send it to a literary agent for possible representation. And then you wait. Ideally you work on more writing while you wait.…

A Tale of Two Really Amazing Stories from “The Life You Want Miami” weekend!

 So Much More Than Meets the Eye- my experience with Oprah! By Meg Nocero

 

As the inevitable was creeping closer and closer, I refused to even allow any doubt that my mother would not recover to enter my consciousness.  My mom told me that she did not want to give up and I made it my mission to help her in any way I could.  While I had experienced depression before when I was coping with the life changes of having a baby, I had never contemplated…

Hello? Is anyone there?

I asked myself this morning what I am doing with my life?  So far, I haven't gotten an answer back yet. 

I asked myself if I was happy.  For me that's a pretty easy one, "yes". 

But being happy, isn't the same as knowing what you are doing.  Is it? 

Going over the checklist of a so called successful life, I'm looking pretty good.

I'm All I've Got....And That's PLENTY!

[I just started blogging for the wonderful site/cause, I AM THAT GIRL. Below is an excerpt of my first blog post]

I had a revelation last night while I was in the bathroom (where, funnily enough, happens to be the room where I receive many of my spiritual “aha” moments). I was brushing my teeth while imagining Oprah was interviewing me on her Super Soul Sunday, as I often do. This time Oprah was asking me about love and how I knew it was time to let myself receive long-lasting love…
