Excerpt from #2 Burnout Series & “Weird” Update

I sensed that this was a sign of how it was going to be – that I would be watched over and protected, even by strangers, like the boy in the filling station who had phoned to say he’d found my wallet. Continue reading

Book 2 (Burnout to Bliss series) is out!

CYCLING in the CITY  is the first tale of recovery from intense burnout after leaving a situation that literally killed her.

It was a time of “doing nothing” for the workaholic that experienced all that madness during the previous 10 months — like being murdered while lecturing. (Please see BURNOUT below)

It tells not only how the author healed her broken self, but how you can make the changes you want to make!

CYCLING in the CITY is a story about overcoming limitations –one small step at a time. It’s also about the process of making life changes – like why resolutions don’t stick.

It shows how you can plan for success instead of failure – even how to make tough changes like quitting smoking, alcohol or drugs.

And, it includes the underlying SECRET for success!

I retired from government service in 2014, well before the country elected a president who seems bent on establishing a dictatorship. An essential part of his plan is ravaging as many Federal agencies as he can and subverting their intended missions. All in all, I’m grateful not to be back in my old cubicle at the Department of Labor (OSHA), watching the effects of this first-hand, but it still makes my blood boil.

I wasn’t one of those aging employees who clung to my job once I sensed I was being pushed toward retirement. It was aggravating to see my substantive work start to disappear as my hair went gray. I saw younger employees awarded higher grades to do essentially the same work I used to do. They were pampered far too much with all-expenses-paid junkets, lunches, and “retreats,” and the more…
