My Goals on my 79th Birthday

October 26th, 2012 by Julia Spencer

It is 1am in the morning and I just woke up and a smile came on my face as I realized I am 79 years old today. So I got up to write my goals to accomplish by my 80th birthday.
• Continue to build my relationships with family and friends.
• Lose 40 pounds and increase my dopamine and receptors for a healthy body.
• Publish my book I’m Not Stupit, I’m Dyslexic.
• Continue marketing Looking Through a Keyhole.
• Launch my web site on “How To Redefine Yourself.”
• Conduct speaking engagements and workshops on “How To Redefine Yourself: The key to a Fulfilling and Meaningful Life.”
• Go shopping.

Did you know that statistics show that people who write their goals down have a 80% higher accomplishment rate than those who do not record them.

My SeeingEye dog Irene

October 25th, 2012 by Julia Spencer

Today I’m off to a speaking engagement at The Fountains At Cedar Parke,an independent living facility. Irene, my Seeing Eye guide dog is so cooperative. She lays next to the podium, looking pretty, sometimes nods off, until she hears her name and then looks up at me with her soulful eyes. At the end of the Q & A segment, I take the harness off Irene and let the seniors pet her. She knows her role and gets excited as the harness comes off, she heads toward the nearest person. Her tail wags as she sits in front of each person and lets them pet her. She plays the room. When she is finished and I put the harness on her, she is happy to go back to work taking care of me. We are a team. Everyone falls in love with Irene. Too see Irene in a you tube video go to www.juliaspencer.net

Spoke at Brown University Medical School.

October 18th, 2012 by Julia Spencer

I was invited to speak to the medical students at Brown University. What a revelation. The topic was my genetic eye disease Retinitis Pigmatosa and my doctor/patient relationship from back in early 2000 when the disease was rapidly progressing. I had to tell them, “I didn’t have a doctor/patient relationship.” As my eye doctor told me back then,( not my present eye doctor, )”There’s nothing I can do for you. You’re like a dying man asking for help. There is no help for you.” In other words stop bothering me. I did, I left him. To be continued. Sorry, I have to get back to work.

Conversation with God

February 12th, 2012 by Julia Spencer

I awoke this morning having a conversation with God, the first one in forty year. I didn’t see that coming. I wrote it down. I guess I’m back to writing my book, “Losing God,” which I put off to work on my book, “I’m not stupid, I’m Dyslexic.” They are competing with each other. Well, tell me, how did your morning start out? Anything unexpected? Don’t you just love when life throws you a curve ball.
