Inspiration

I’m so glad that I can be an inspiration to someone. Nothing makes me feel better about myself then knowing that I’m doing something right in my life. By writing my book and publishing it on Amazon I encouraged a few people to write their own books and publish them. Sometimes life doesn’t go as you planned, it throws you a few curve balls now and then but when you find what you’ve been looking for and find the purpose of your life it just makes you feel amazing.

I wasn’t going to put this out there but I feel like it will push me more. I recently submitted my new novel to an agent and it was turned down. She said she liked it and considered it but the way the market was she wasn’t sure if it would be a good idea. I know hearing those words hurt at that moment but it just pushes me harder to find someone that will be the perfect person. I know that my new novel is going to be a big seller, I can feel it.

My husband said to me yesterday, “You know ever since you’ve been writing, I’ve never seen you happier.” He’s got a point there, I never been happier, this is like my happy place. Maybe my books won’t ever sell to their capacity but the point is that I wrote them. They are nobody else’s but mine. I put a lot of work into them and my thoughts and creativity are put on paper for everyone to see. I am proud of that fact.

Thank you all so much for reading and the support.

Have to Admit

I’m really excited about my new novel that I’m working on. I’ve been working crazily on it and I absolutely love it. I’m hoping that it will wrap up soon so I can bring it to you lovely people. 

I feel like my mind has so many thoughts about many different ideas for new novels. This is such a wonderful thing and I’m so excited. I don’t think I’ve been this excited about anything in a real long time, except maybe when I was getting my puppies haha. 

I come home from work and I just want to jump on my laptop and write more. I can’t believe that this is happening to me. I never thought that I would be able to write and it come true on paper. Happy happy joy joy! Sorry I’m a little crazy about happiness! 

Hope everyone has a great day or night wherever you may hail from 🙂

Don’t forget to check out my novel Not Alone on Amazon under a Melissa Rose Bushey. Thanks for the support everyone!

Sometimes ya have to…

Sometimes you have to forget the bullshit and just go with the flow. Stop listening to what people tell you because it could make you feel even worse. 

Lately people have been saying things to me and they think that it makes me feel good when really it makes me feel like shit. When those people say these things to me I feel like they’re pushing me away which in reality I could care less, they’re not really important people in my life. Just people giving me their opinions which I consider but in the end you should listen to what your intuition tells you. 

So something else happened this morning, I thought I lost my flash drive with all my writing on it. I know what you’re thinking, how come I don’t save it to like a million other places incase this happens? I believe I will now because I was freaking out. I was writing this weekend and I left my flash drive on the desk, this morning I went to grab it and it was gone. I’m like you gotta be kidding me. I started throwing things around and then I picked up my couches, yes I picked them up, my adrenaline was pumping so hard I didn’t care or realize what I was actually doing until I spotted the flash drive under the one couch. I crawled on the ground and I grabbed that shit hahaha. I’m like oh my precious, I’ll never let you out of my sight again 🙂 

So that’s my little story today and I know the two things I wrote about are completely different from one another but I wanted to write what I felt like today. Because hey that’s what I do. 

Have a good day y’all!

Hey

I just wanted to say hello tonight. Nothing much is going on right now. Had a snow day today from work so that made me happy. 

Went to the flower show yesterday which was Holland themed. It was beautiful and it smelled amazing. So many tulips in a room, I’ve never seen so many. There were wooden shoes, windmills, tiny little cottages, a train set, and many more themes that I can’t exactly think of. I was happy to experience the show this year, although it was super crowded it was still fun. 

Anyways I hope everyone had a wonderful evening and it’s almost the middle of the week aka hump day! Much love!

Yesterday

So yesterday was a crazy day for me. I had to go to the dentist which I absolutely hate going to. I was scheduled for a deep cleaning and a lot of people of course freaked me out beyond anything so I didn’t really want to go. I complained and complained but I needed to really go and I’m glad I did because it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. They used a numbing gel and I was good, no pain whatsoever. I hate when people scare the hell out of me lol but I made it anyway.

So yesterday was also International Women’s Day and I knew that I needed to stand with my fellow women. I wore red and I took off from work to support us women. I think in today’s society, women are being looked down upon, especially with the people that are in the White House. I’m not saying I do/or don’t support Trump, this has nothing to do with him. I just wanted to stand up with women to make us feel just as important as men.

Okay so I wont duel on that anymore for the day. I did do some amazing workouts yesterday, I did a 9 mile bike ride, which kicked my ass since I’m not used to riding. I did yoga which felt amazing. I felt like yesterday besides the dentist I wanted to do something for myself as a woman to make me feel powerful. In yoga we celebrated International Woman’s Day by dedicating our practice to the women around the world and to a special woman in your life. It felt amazing and it made me feel happy.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!

Grateful

I’m so grateful today that I was able to type sentences to make this fabulous book that I’m working on. I never seemed to be the creative type until I started writing and it just makes me feel really good. I do enjoy it a lot. When I think about writing and the story that I want to write about, my mind just goes into this frenzy of words and thoughts. It’s amazing what the mind can do and accomplish. Everyone has their gifts/talents and for me I really think that’s writing. 

Happy Monday y’all!

Another Day

I dont really know what to write about today. I’m just kind of bored and I’m actually at my parents house and hearing them bicker. I try not to laugh but I can’t help it, I guess that’s what happens when you’re married for so many years. I’ve only been married 2 and a half years and we fight like that already, hahaha I guess it is what it is. 

I did a lot of cleaning today at my house, my many animals are destroying my house but I still love them so much, especially my bulldog, he’s the cutest thing and he has the greatest personality. 

I didn’t get to do any writing these past few days because I’ve just been in a funk and also when I do sit down to write something comes up and I’m not able to. I am however definitely enjoying how this book is going. 

I made a new playlist for my jogging workout which I really like, when I hear it I get really excited and can’t wait to workout. I feel like it gives me some energy and it makes me happy. Have you ever had that happen when you hear a song you just light up and you feel the energy inside your body? Totally love that feeling.

 Okay I’m done for the evening, hope everyone has a great night! Cheers to it almost being the weekend!

Just Happy..

In thinking about what I could write today or these past few days I found it hard to come up with something. I like to try and be positive but some days it’s hard. My book on Amazon isn’t selling as much as I hoped it would’ve but I have to expect that, I’m an unknown author who is just starting out. I should just be happy because I actually accomplished writing a novel. For my next book I’m going to try and see if I can actually get an agent for. I’m excited for it, it’s a lot different then my first novel where it was a thriller, this one is just a fiction book geared for basically anyone.

I’m blessed to have this gift of creativity that I didn’t really know I had. I feel even blessed for people reading my words, it makes me feel so good. They actually took the time out of their lives to read a story that I wrote.

I enjoy what I’m doing but some days I find myself becoming discouraged. I must not let those feelings take over me. If I fall down I need to get right back up, if I get turned down from an agent I will not let that stop me. I will do what I can to keep throwing my novels out there. If I can’t get signed I will be happy that I can at least be on Amazon and sell my novels. A lot of people have dreams and no one should shy away from them, just push yourself harder and you never know what you can accomplish. I couldn’t believe when I wrote my first novel, I printed it out and I thought, “Wow did I write all that?” I was so excited. Tons of pages and tons of words on those pages.

Follow your dreams! You are what you make yourself.
