Birthdays…

I love birthdays, I don’t care what anyone says. I know some people who hate them but I love them. Another year older and little more wiser. They just make me feel special. My birthday was yesterday and it was a wonderful day.

I took off from work to get a massage with my mama which was great! I really needed it. My husband treated me to some shopping and then we went out to dinner. While at dinner I received some fantastic news that an agent is requesting my work. I’m not going to get my hopes up but hey it’s finally nice to get recognized . I wrote my first book almost a year ago and wrote my second book about six months after that. The third book (which is the sequel to the second) is taking a little bit longer due to personal issues. It’s getting there, I’m a little over halfway done.

Anyways as I’m distracted by all that I just wanted to say birthdays are amazing. It means you made it another year and you have another year to look forward to. I know people always say “I’m getting old” well no shit, that’s the joys of growing and aging lol. Growing goes with experience I think.

I’m very appreciative to all the people that wished me a happy birthday yesterday. Friends and family and strangers 🙂 means a lot to me!

Love it


I was so excited when I came home on Sunday and there was a box on my porch. I grabbed it and opened it and to my surprise there were my copies of my new book inside. I was like I have to take a picture of these. They look amazing! I can’t believe I wrote two novels already and working on the third. This journey makes me feel so blessed that I have this gift. It actually makes me feel like I finally have a purpose on this wonderful planet!

If you haven’t yet, please check out my new novel From Within on Amazon and Smashwords. I appreciate the love and support from everyone. I’m so happy I found my calling in life ❤️❤️

Yay!

It is with great excitement to let you fine folks know that I got the part! Not sure which part but I’ll be finding out Thursday night when I go there for a workshop. I’m so excited and nervous but more thrilled then anything. I always wanted to experience something like this but never really had the nerve to do it. Thanks to my wonderful mother who pushed me to do it. She’s also in it as well so that makes me super happy. She’s my best friend so who else better to do it with. I feel so proud of myself that I overcame my shyness and stepped out of my comfort zone. When you out your mind to it anything is possible!

Have a great Tuesday!

Working Out

What does everyone do to work out? I try to do what I can. I jog, lift weights, do the weight bench and I do yoga. The jogging thing lately has been killing my knees and it down right sucks. My sneakers I wear are meant for running so I don’t think it’s from that, maybe it’s because I’m actually getting older, which I hate to say. Bodies don’t get any younger, they kind of get older and that’s why you workout to try and keep in good shape and it makes you feel good. 

I wanted to just stop by and see what everyone thought about that and to see what everyone else does for working out. I don’t mind working out because it feels good. I’ve been doing it a lot lately and I lost a few pounds and I’m actually feeling pretty good. Hope to hear from some of you soon. 

Have a good night!

Today..

Today is the day I jam out to some music and get some writing done. I’m feeling really happy today and I just want to get up and dance around. I love days like those, feel like life is going the way it’s supposed to.

Hope everyone else is having a wonderful day! I know today is President’s Day so a lot of people have off today, but I’m in the minority where I’m working today but it doesn’t stop me from acting like a fool by dancing and singing hahaha.

Enjoy your day people!

Weekend

Hope everyone has a great weekend!! It’s beautiful where I live!! 

Finally it’s here, the week was sooo long it felt like. I’m happy to be home and relax and get some writing done. Enjoy yourself on this beautiful weekend!

Much love!

Contagious

Don’t let the title fool you, I don’t mean contagious as in sick and someone is going catch something from someone else. I mean contagious in a positive way. Meaning that when you’re all smiles and happy, that can transform someone else and they can be happy and all smiles, which in turn can be contagious. The way we act towards others can generate a new and wonderful day for someone else. For example, if someone is having a bad day and they come across someone that is truly happy and all smiles, that could turn the person that’s in a bad mood, happy.

So I’m writing today because I want to share my happiness with everyone today. I know my last post was about happiness but I can’t help to continue on the happiness path. You have the power to control your own emotions and feelings, just look on the bright side of something that seems to be dragging you down. Maybe you’re financially doing awful but you still have a house, you have food in the fridge, you have heat, and you have electric. Sometimes the brain can be a tricky thing but don’t let it bring you down. Look at the positive in everything.

If you would please check out my book on Amazon, I would be super grateful. The book is called Not Alone: A Novel under my name Melissa Rose Bushey. The book is a Suspenseful Thriller with some Mystery. If this intrigues you, please check it out. Have an amazing day! Spread the love 🙂

Happiness

So in all honesty who truly is happy? Is it the neighbor next door that’s jogging around the neighborhood, the person you bump into at the store buying milk, or could it be someone at your job?

I have to be honest, I have been on this earth for some time now and I really haven’t remembered the last time I was truly happy. I mean yeah I smile a lot and laugh but deep down inside something was truly missing. I love my family, I love my husband, I love my fur babies but does all that make me happy? In a way yes it does, but not 100%. I come to realize that today for the first time since I’m not sure when, I am happy. I can say for absolute certainty I feel giddy and I feel extremely happy. I’m seriously not one of those people that are always so happy go lucky. This is actually a change for me. If you ask anyone that I know they will tell you, I’m always so miserable and I complain a lot. Today though something changed inside me, is it because I dropped my classes and knew that writing was the path I wanted to go down? Honestly I’m not sure, but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with it.

I was going to wait until tomorrow to post this but for some reason I felt like I needed to do it tonight. I had this burning in my mind so I thought no better time then the present. Have you ever just thought what you wanted in life is something completely different then what you actually want? That’s exactly how I feel right now. I painted this picture in my head that I wanted to be a psychologist and that I wanted to sit in a chair and listen to people tell me their issues and I could help them figure out what they needed, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought, I don’t think that’s for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for giving advice, but to tell someone what they should do, I don’t think I could do that. I want to write, I want my voice to be heard. I have such a creative mind that thoughts sometimes run wild on me. I want to be able to put that on paper and run away with it, I want people to look at those words and get lost in them. It’s my only dream and wish. Before I started to write, I read books like there is no tomorrow and my favorite part about them was getting lost in them. Being pulled into a book and feeling what the characters are feeling is something that I’ll never forget and I want to put that same feeling into somebody else.

That’s all for tonight, I will leave you with that. Have a good night everyone!

Shining Light

So my beautiful people today I write to express how I’m feeling and how grateful I am that people are reading my posts and following me. It’s an honor to have people in my life that care about my work.

So today I’m writing and writing a lot and it feels so good. Some days when I think about writing, I wonder how it’s going to be. Some days the words flow right through me and other days I feel stuck. Kind of like writer’s block. Today however, thankfully the words are flowing through me. I now have a page on Facebook that is just for my author page. If you want to check it out look under Melissa Rose Bushey, remember the page otherwise you’ll just get my regular Facebook under people.

So yesterday I made a bold decision and I dropped my classes at college. I felt like it was the right decision for me. I was sitting there in class and I was thinking to myself “what am I doing here?” It just wasn’t what I wanted at all, I just had this gut feeling telling me that this wasn’t for me. So with much debate, I decided to quit. I want to focus more on writing, it makes me super happy and it’s what I love to do. A lot of people know that if something makes you happy stick with it, and trust me it does.

Today it’s finally sunny. It’s been raining non stop for days and today the clouds have opened to make way for the sun. In a way it feels like my mood lately has been miserable and the weather and I were on the same page. As soon as I made the decision of dropping my classes the sun began to shine. There is light at the end of the tunnel, you just have to wait for it. Be patient it will come.

Have a wonderful day!
