How Breakfast At Tiffany’s Teaches You To Become A Classic Writer ~ Guest Post At Men with Pens

Hello Readers,

Today’s a big day:  I have guest post at Men with Pens! Men with Pens is a well-known team of web designers and writers, committed to “changing businesses (and lives!) through high-end websites that get results.” I’m honored to be posting there, sharing what Breakfast At Tiffany’s has taught me about great writing and great love.

Today’s Post:  How Breakfast At Tiffany’s Teaches You To Become

A Classic Writer

Readers, I want to let you know that I’ll be on vacation next week, and as such, I won’t be posting this coming Monday, the 15th, or next Monday, the 22nd. As such, I’m glad to offer you two posts today.

In case you missed it, I had a (second) guest post at Undefinable You earlier this week…

On Power Cords, Power Choices, Adversity + Rising Above

Finally, I want to follow up on Monday’s post, and thank you for your wonderful comments and support.

My dear friend, L’Arche family member and surrogate grandfather Vincent* passed away yesterday morning. He died at home, surrounded by loved ones. (I’m thankful that I was able to say goodbye to him the night before.)

When I think of him now, I remember what he used to say to me when I’d rush and make silly mistakes on routine. Whenever I’d get frustrated with myself, he’d always put me back in perspective by saying, “Don’t worry, dear. I still love ya.”

And now that he’s gone, I still hear him saying that to me. Whenever I get too sad, I think of those simple, beautiful words, and somehow, I am all right.


*Names have been changed.

4 Steps To A Decluttered Home And A Deepened Relationship: Guest Post At Minimalist Packrat

Hello and happy Friday!

Guest post #6-in-a-row (yes, this ends the streak…I think!) comes to you via Minimalist Packrat, the site that celebrates writer Tanja Hoagland’s journey from (you guessed it) packrat to minimalist.

Which leads me to ponder:  if I’d employed a similar “is living into now + used to be” fusion title for this site, it might read, “Peaceful Control-Freak,” or “Brave Scared” or “Bold Writer Shy Girl.”

That last one kind of has a ring to it… 😉

Moving on. As you know, A Wish Come Clear’s mission is to help you find meaning in your most challenging relationships. Hence, today’s post focuses not just on decluttering, but on the remarkable bond between 14-year-old middle-school valedictorian Olivia Halvorsen and her younger brother, Ben, who has Down Syndrome. How do these two topics connect? Read on to find out!

I’m honored to be posting at Minimalist Packrat. I’ve been corresponding with Tanja ever since we bonded over our mutual love of Francine Jay’s book The Joy Of Less (see also:  my guest post on Miss Minimalist.) Nowadays we encourage and help one another along on our respective writing journeys. Thank you for the opportunity to post at your site, Tanja!
