Us Is Invisible: A Year of Thoughts on Marriage, Parenting, and Life from a Two-Time Loser and Big-Time Winner

I’m excited to announce that Us Is Invisible: A Year of Thoughts on Marriage, Parenting and Life from a Two-Time Loser and Big-Time Winner by Reid Lundy will be released in paperback this month. As Reid’s consultant on the project, I had the pleasure of editing this fun, inspiring, and touching book, which often evoked tears and laughter as I pored through 365 days of the author’s wisdom gleaned from life experience.

From the book description:

Reid Lundy entered his twenties sitting high on a wall of hopes and dreams for the future; full of self, ego, and pride. Before the end of his third decade of life, he had fallen off that wall and shattered into bits and pieces. Before his thirtieth birthday, he’d been married and divorced twice. As custodial father to a three-year-old son, he worked a job that was going nowhere, struggled and sometimes failed to keep the bills paid and the lights on, and resigned himself to the fact that he was just not any good at being married.

Us Is Invisible was not written by a marriage expert. The author is not a degreed or trained therapist, nor a child psychologist – just a guy who made massive mistakes and paid a price for his immaturity, selfishness, and sometimes outright stupidity.

This book guides you through a year of thoughts on marriage, parenting, and life lessons learned from the mistakes and failures of a two-time loser, and the celebrations of the joys and victories of a big-time winner.

Follow Reid on Twitter @ReidLundyTN, connect with him on Facebook and visit his website, www.reidlundy.comI’ll post a link and an announcement when the book is available for purchase on Amazon and everywhere books are sold online.

Thank you, Reid, for sharing your life’s lessons learned for the spiritual and personal growth of others. I’m looking forward to future collaborations.

5 Ways To Overcome Writer’s Block

5 Ways To Overcome Writer’s Block

It happens to the best of us. One day you sit down at your computer, determined to finish that next chapter, complete a project for a client, or meet a deadline for an article, when — bam! — your mind suddenly turns to mush, your creativity evaporates, and your usually seamless connection between head, heart and typing fingers takes a hiatus.

What to do when your blank computer screen stares ominously in your face while panic sets in over looming deadlines, paychecks and bills?

Here are five of my favorite ways to overcome the equality opportunity malady known as Writer’s Block:

 

1. Exercise – My favorite way to burn calories, tone muscle and release stress? Leslie Sansone’s Walk Away The Pounds DVD. See my review here. Not only will Leslie get your adrenaline pumping along with your heart (the most important muscle in the body), she’ll keep you moving with her genuine, effervescent personality, warm demeanor and radiant smile. Since she motivates others through sincere encouragement, not military-style intimidation, if you’re the kind of person who’s inspired to push your physical limits by working out with a serious-yet-nurturing coach, Leslie’s your go-to gal. My more recent favorite is Walk It Off in 30 Days, which has enabled me to reach my fitness goals. If you’re looking for something gentler, check out You Can Do Yoga.

2. Get Out In Nature – Whether you prefer the tranquil site of water, the majestic beauty of mountains, the vibrant colors of a flower garden or the breathtaking site of a towering evergreen, spending time in nature will soothe the soul and clear the creative channels. Spending at least a few minutes a day outdoors will also reconnect you to the world around you, which is especially important since writing tends to be a solitary — and sometimes lonely — activity.

 

3. Keep A Journal – A great habit to get into for many reasons, keeping a daily journal where you make note of the things you’re grateful to be, do, and have will keep your mind and spirit focused on the positive. It’s also a perfect place to “write out” all other distractions — such as the items on your To Do List, and document your daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly goals. Describe your vision for your life in vivid detail in the areas of health, wealth, relationships, travel, and personal growth. Read it aloud. Feel it coming to fruition and act as if you already have it. Doing so will inspire you to complete the tasks at hand in an easy and relaxed manner, understanding that what you do in every given moment creates the life you desire.

 

4. Pray   If you believe in God, take the time to pray each day for guidance. During Lent, I use the daily meditations from The Word Among Us. I’ve also found inspiration in the Daily Word and other types of devotional books and magazines. Even if you spend only ten minutes or so before getting out of bed in the morning and retiring at night to close your eyes, give thanks, and ask for help in fulfilling your projects to the best of your ability, it will go a long way toward keeping the flow of creativity moving.

5. Phone A Friend/Relative – Sometimes when I’m really stuck and nothing else seems to work, I get up from my desk, pick up the phone, and called a loved one. Whether it’s my mother or a good friend, I reach out to someone I know for a fact supports me unconditionally and will be willing to lend an ear. In many cases, I don’t even mention the problems I’m having with completing a particular chapter or article; I just call to hear the person’s voice, find out how their day is going, and remind myself that I’m blessed to be surrounded by so many caring people. A word of caution: put a time limit on this lovely distraction so you don’t end up spending too much time away from your project. Talk with them just enough to recharge your creative batteries, then get back to work.
