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!

A Good Day…

Today was a good day. Was able to spend some time with my hubby after going to a psychic and she told me some things that kind of hurt but today I tried to make the best of it. I will not be mentioning what she told me so please don’t ask. Anyways today we hung out and it was amazing, we went to a casino and won a huge amount of money and he splurged on me. He said I deserved it, that put a smile on my face and it made my heart melt. 

I feel grateful that we got to spend some time together because we don’t really. He’s always working and our schedules conflict. He made me feel special today and that’s all that matters. So to the husband that made me feel like a queen today, I appreciate you very much and love you so much. 

Tomorrow I’m spending one on one time my with my best friend who is also my mama and we’re going to the flower show. We’ve been going for the last few years and I’m excited, I’ll share in my experience tomorrow. Anyways hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! 

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!

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.

Feeling Excited

I just wanted to write today about the new novel I’m working on. I’m super excited about this one and I am not giving it away. I feel more inspired this time around with writing. I feel like the words are just pouring out of me. I don’t know if anyone has ever experienced this before but I’m really loving it.

Today I wrote a ton of pages and I felt like I couldn’t stop, but I finally took a break. Lately writing for me has been hard, I was having little inspiration. Yesterday’s blog post I wrote of 9/11 and ever since then I guess I feel like I woke up. I needed something to kick me in the ass to get me motivated. I’m here and breathing and healthy and I need to live, if that means writing then so be it. I come to realize that writing is my thing, I love it. If I can express myself then I will do so. I never imagined that this is where I would be in my life, but things happen for a reason and that’s the path that you walk down. I will continue to do what I love to do.

I feel like I got a lot accomplished on this book and I feel really good about it, which is all that matters. If I wrote this book and I was dissatisfied then I would have to scrap it but I feel something inside me that is amazing. It’s like a flower blooming inside my chest, a world that opened up for me. That’s why I’m excited! Thanks to all you wonderful people for reading my blog and I hope you get the chance to read my first novel called Not Alone on Amazon. Just type in the search box my name Melissa Rose Bushey, I found that was a lot easier then putting in the title because there are apparently a lot of books called Not Alone. A Novel. 🙂

Much love everyone!

Time..

Time. Where did it go? It feels like not long ago I was just a little girl playing outside with rocks, yes rocks. That sounds strange now that I’m writing it hahaha. This was way back before cell phones and all that social media stuff. But I really would like to know where time went. When I was a kid I just wanted to be an adult and now that I’m an adult I wish I were a kid. It’s strange when I think of things like that. Time just goes so quickly, you’re here today but you can be gone tomorrow. You never know when your time is up.

It took me 30 years to know what I wanted to do with my time. I want to write! When I was a kid I wrote all kinds of short stories, crazy ones. I think back to then and realized I did have a creative mind but I never really thought about it then. I wanted to be a teacher when I was about 8 but then as I got older that wore off and then I wanted to be a nurse. Eventually that dream just fizzled out and now after I finished my first novel, I sit here and I know that is what I was meant to do, I wanted to be a novelist. Writing is like my outlet and it helps me with my anxieties with what I face everyday, which I won’t get into. I read so many books, I love it. I know not many people like to read anymore but for me it’s something that helps me escape everyday life. You fall in love with characters and you visit places you’ve never been before. You experience what they experience and you feel what they feel. I love the when I get lost in a book and hours go by and it’s over. But then you pick it up again or get another book and you start all over again.

So can time heals things? I guess you never really heal from things, you just get over them.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

You Never Know..

You really never know what kind of day you’re going to have until you’re actually starting your day. I was in the process of having a horrible day because I spilled coffee all over my kitchen counter and floor today. However, instead of getting pissed about it and yelling, I actually started to laugh, because what is the point? There really isn’t a point to get all mad and get your blood pressure on the rise because of some stupid mistake you made.

But I have to tell you something, last night while I was sleeping, my lovely husband decided to do something that I’ve been wanting him to do for the longest time, and no it wasn’t sexual, it was actually moving a piece of exercise equipment. Well my amazing dog, Buddy,which he is literally scared of everything and he’s a bulldog so you would think he’s just a tough little man. He’s not! He’s actually quite the opposite, he’s a big baby. I’ll take the blame for that, I just baby him and a lot. I can’t help it, I love him so much. So yes, he’s really spoiled, he likes to lay on me and cuddle with me and he’s super heavy but he’s my lap dog. Wow I just totally went off on a rant about my dog haha. So anyway, back to last night, so my dog sees this piece of equipment and he just can’t stop barking. He’s like deathly afraid of it and it woke me up out of a sound sleep.I ran downstairs furious and just flipped out. I mean it wasn’t my husbands fault it was Buddy’s, but I was half asleep and I just couldn’t really tell what was going on, so I cursed out the hubby and I went back to bed. Today I woke up super tired and I felt bad about yelling last night. So this morning I wrote him a nice little text apologizing.

That was obviously before I spilled the coffee all over the counter and on the floor which I laughed about. I decided that today I was going to write some more of my new novel, and I just felt like today was going to be one of those days where I wouldn’t have any inspiration, but when I started to write I couldn’t stop. That was most definitely a good thing. What I take out of all of this is that you wake up and you feel like you’re going to have one of those horrible crappy days but it ends up being a good day. You never know.

Have a good day everyone!!
