My wish for you today is that your having a wonderful day. I would be honored to share with you some inspiration to help out! All my best, Levi!

Stopping off at the post office today, I was waiting on by the always polite clerk who has gotten so used to my being there of the last year that it’s not even funny and we began discussing the weather. The clerk began to tell me about how they had used the nice day yesterday to wash their car because they don’t clean it when the weather is cooler. We had a good laugh about that and then the clerk said something that caught my attention in another way.

“As you can see I have a pretty dull life,” they said.

I encouraged that it surly was not dull but the clerk insisted it was as we parted ways. I left the post office and began thinking about how submitting to a ‘dull’ life is just not what life is all about! Life is truly meant to be lived to the fullest and beyond submission to a false idea that life is just ‘ok’ or ‘so-so’.

I was there! I was over weight (by 50 pounds), I blamed others, I just rolled with everything that was handed to me instead of taking it head on. I felt that I had a ‘dull’ life and fell into the trap of that was just how it was and I had been dealt that hand. How wrong I was!

This month alone I hired a life coach to help guide me to the next level of my writing and speaking career. His name is RM Dozier and upon meeting him a year ago, I know this guy is going to push me and that is what I desire. I’m not afraid to seek help for my goals and RM is just the man to help me fine tune my focus! We have a conference call coming up next week and I am all out ready for it!

I was also asked if I might give the keynote speech for my old high school’s career day and I said I would be humbled to! I’m just waiting for a reply and it will be off to the races for speech writing and run through to polish it.

In one month, I will be traveling to northern Indiana and presenting two presentations at Canterbury School and am ready to crush it with excitement and fun! I have also been confirmed for a elementary school visit in central Illinois in April and one in Southern Illinois in May. Add in a pre-graduation ceremony speech before the graduating class of my local high school and the truth is I have anything but a ‘dull’ life!

No matter what it is, your life is your life! If you find it becoming a bit ‘dull’ or lackluster, let’s jump on giving it a polish, you’ll feel so good once you’ve begun!

Let’s get into 2018! This is everyone’s year to take off!!

Today, I was off to the printer’s again. This time, it was to finalize posters for my speaking engagements and for my upcoming Barnes & Noble book signing in Evansville, Indiana.


The poster proof for the book signing looks amazing! Seeing the collage hit me at first because I could see just how far my hard work has taken me and so many great memories, all together in one place! I look forward to being able to pick it up and see that it gets to the Evansville, IN. B&N to be placed in front of the children’s section!!


The proof for m speaking engagements looks super great! This tree grows in my hometown and, at first look, one would think it could not live but it continues to grow, regardless of its setbacks! I can’t wait to use this a a great visual aid when speaking to junior high and high school kids!


I will be speaking to two local high school graduating classes this month and am excited to have my outline made. It took a couple of hours and a few ‘dry runs’ to put it together. I’m going to give it everything I’ve got! So as I head of to do the ‘evening job thing’, I hope your having a wonderful Tuesday, don’t be a stranger!


Well, the unseasonably warm November weather has gone and is quite cool now! None the less, today was a wonderful Saturday!

Today, Barney & Lexi arrived in full force as I prepare to read to both Ethan and Rylen’s classes before 2016 ends. 40 young readers will get a Christmas surprise after meeting B&L! I am very excited to read to these kids and hope they love Barney & Lexi.

mrs-flety-flyerBefore I go to Bridgeport Grade School to read to them, I will begin my school tour by reading to the students of Parkside Elementary and introducing Barney & Lexi to 100+ students! Bookmarks are being made and today, I got onto my PC and did the layout and design for the take-home-flyers that will be given to the students. I am very excited with the finished product and HP says that they should arrive within 7 days!

If you want anything in life, YOU GOTTA GRIND! I have been very congested today and had to nap some of that away. However, I got up and made sure that progress went on and not allowed to have a full day off!

Have a great weekend everybody, may your own success be just around the corner!!

The past couple of days have left me dragging. I have come home from work Friday night after 11 and fell asleep in my recliner and apologize for not posting. Last night, I watched some movies with my kids at Gma and Gpas house and got home very late. I hate not writing those nights and want to say sorry.

It now has been many weeks of working 75 hours a week between two jobs and something I did not see at first has come to mind. The first week or two I did not notice things but know, after many weeks lack of sleep over time has caught me. I took an hour longer at my night job because I was having trouble focusing and staying awake. Co workers at my day job told me that at one point I was sitting at my desk and snoring. Not good when it effects your work. I have been thinking and will make a decision this week on what direction I think will be best to keep moving forward in a positive way.

Tomorrow, I will be traveling to Lawrenceville High School in Illinois and speaking with a writing class and I could not be more siked! I feel so grateful to meet the amazing students and share our passion for storytelling! I am also excited to get back in front of a group again and help others realize their goals!

I am waiting on the magazine articles to be published and believe all three should be at any time! Until then, I can not stay awake any longer but want to wish you a wonderful start to the week ahead and hope it you make your mark on it!
