Welcome to my stop on the Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop book tour which is being hosted by Neverland Blog Tours! Today’s post instead of a review we have the author herself, Isabella Louise Anderson writing a guest post on the negatives and positives about deadlines. Something we can all agree I think are often the worst things in the world, says the uni student with a one thousand word assignment due in three weeks but has not even started! Anyway onto the post!
THE NEGATIVE AND POSITIVES ABOUT DEADLINES
Deadlines. Some people like them, some people hate them, and then there are those who thrive on them. Believe it or not, at times, I’m all three. I like them because they’re like tasks that I know I need to accomplish, hate them because I’m a procrastinator, and yet thrive on them because there have been more times than none that I seem to work better knowing I have something that needs to get done immediately.
Setting Deadlines: While setting deadlines is a good thing, one thing I’ve learned is that it’s best to set realistic goals. These are ones you know you can make, ones that won’t push you to your breaking point, and one that works with your life. To do this, I recommend you decide on one big goal, then break it down into week by week, until it’s accomplished.
Accomplishing Deadlines: When working with your deadlines, it’s best to have a family member or friend be your person you can tell your goals to. Not only will they help you accomplish what you want, but they will also help you be accountable for your tasks. I encourage you not to stress. Take it one step at a time, and know you can do it!
Deadline Accomplished (Treat Yo Self): After accomplishing your big goal (CONGRATULATIONS!), feel free to reward yourself. Whether it’s a manicure, a scoop of ice cream, or an expensive purchase, enjoy it! You’ve worked hard, and you earned it!
As the owner of a successful florist shop, Khloe Harper trusts her instincts. She has a strong bond with her family and friends, but after being betrayed by her last love, she’s kept herself at arms’ length from romance. When dashing entertainment attorney Derek Thomas walks into her store, Khloe’s interest is piqued. What at first seems like a business relationship quickly turns into romance, and Derek slowly plucks away the petals she’s been hiding behind. Just as Khloe lets down her guard, she discovers that Derek may not be worthy of her love after all. Frumpy Connie Albright has a faux fascination with an imaginary man named Walt, thinking that by sending herself flowers from him she’ll feel less out-of-place with the “mean girls” she works with. When she comes face to face with her possible prince charming and thinking she might have a happy ending, when a truth is revealed, she wonders if she’ll ever have a Cinderella story. A recently widowed senior, Gabby Lewis, isn’t ready to give up on love—which means releasing herself from survivor’s guilt and taking a chance on finding happiness and companionship again. After signing up for an online dating site for senior citizens, much to her surprise, she’s matched with Harry, an energetic and loving man, who quickly eases himself into her heart. Will Gabby take the leap of falling in love again, knowing it’s possible to have two loves of her life? As each woman’s story develops through flowers and cards sent from Khloe’s shop during the Fall months, they begin to learn that love can only truly blossom when you trust your heart.
