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!!

Yoga

So today I wanted to talk about yoga. It’s a wonderful thing yoga and it’s been around for many many years but didn’t seem to get popular until the 21st century.

I tried doing yoga about 5 years ago and I didn’t like it. I had a horrible experience and it just didn’t feel right to me. I then came across a new studio a little over a year ago. I decided to try it out with my mom and when I did, I loved it. It was just a brand new experience for me. From going in and the atmosphere surrounding me to the actual room where we did the yoga and it just made total sense to me and I was hooked immediately. The other yoga class I went to wasn’t even a yoga studio. It was at a park nature center and it was cold, dark, dirty, and the teacher just wasn’t that great. So I think that makes all the difference, finding the perfect studio and teacher.

Now I go to yoga a few times a week and do all kinds of yoga, depending on my mood. I tried meditation for the first time the other night and it was very nice. Very relaxing and definitely very helpful with taking my stress away.

I really recommend doing yoga, it really does help with stress and stretching feels so amazing. It can be a workout though depending on the kind of yoga you do. I did try Barre yoga a few times and that was so tough but it was a great workout, however, I was sore for a few days afterwards. I enjoy a class where I can relax and all my cares and stress just melt away.

So that’s my yoga talk for today. I hope everyone has an amazing day!

What Makes You Happy?

I want to know what makes you happy, what catches your eye? I would really like to hear some feedback from everyone. It’s fun to hear other ideas being thrown around.

I like to listen to music, I guess it depends on what kind of mood I’m in. I could be on a high and want to listen to something poppy, or I could be in a sensitive mood and want to listen to Country, or in a mellow mood and listen to New Age. I’m all about the music and it making you feel good. They say music is a form of therapy, I believe it. It could turn your world from bad to good. It’s an amazing thing what music could do.

Yoga definitely makes me happy. It helps with stress, which I tend to get a lot of at times. I try and go at least three times a week. It just feels so amazing. Usually I’ll go to yoga and I feel like frazzled and then I’ll leave yoga a completely different person. I love it!

Reading is another thing that makes me happy. I like to read all kind of genres. Whatever pulls me in for a good read, I’m there. Currently I’m reading “The Girl on the Train.” I have seen the movie though, but was very interested in reading the book.What kind of books do y’all prefer to read? Don’t forget to check out my novel Not Alone on Amazon, I had to throw that in there haha.

Movies is another thing that makes me happy. I love movies and I have a ton of them at home. I have Netflix and I have Firestick so I always have movies to watch. My favorite kind of movies are scary movies, it’s an adrenaline thing. I do like all kinds of movies though, Romance, Comedies, Action, whatever. It all thrills me. What kind of movies do you like?

My fur babies make me happy. I have two kitties and two doggies and when I wake up in the morning, I see them and it makes me so happy. I love them so much. I’m such an animal lover. If I could have like 5 dogs I would, but I can’t 🙂

I can’t forget the last thing, writing makes me absolutely happy. Writing my blogs, writing my books, just writing in general. I just really enjoy it.

So please tell me, what makes you happy?

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!
