Remembering Selena

So I have to get this off my chest. I watched Selena today, I’m not sure if you remember who she was. If not I’ll give you a little background. She was a Mexican American girl that was an up and coming singer. She won the hearts of millions of people before her tragic death in 1995. She was shot dead by the president of her fan club. Selena was only 23.

When I watched the movie today it moved me in so many ways. First happiness, then anger, and ended by sadness. This girl had everything. Her family started singing when they were very young. Her brother played the bass and her sister played the drums. They were only kids when they started out. As Selena grew, so did her voice. They started playing locally and then eventually hit the big time. She made it big in Mexico and is considered the highest earned Latina woman ever. She was doing her crossover album when she was killed.

I was so pissed off! This girl was amazing and she was just starting to live her life. Then this jealous woman comes along and shoots her for a reason that was just plain old stupid. To this day it upsets me. She could’ve went on and been something big, even more so then she was, but because of someone’s stupidity she died. You just never know what life is going to throw at you. You could be going along your way successfully, and then bang your dead. I don’t think I’ll ever get over her death. Every time the movie is on (starring Jennifer Lopez) I have to watch it, and every time it cuts deep inside of me. Maybe I’m being crazy but I thought she was a very talented woman. She sang she danced and she even designed her own clothes.

She found the love of her life and married him when she was only 20. He was the guitarist for the group. They lived happily together until her life was cut short. Him and the family were devastated. I don’t know why it bothered me so much today more then any other day. I needed to get this off my chest. I feel so saddened for the family and for her husband because of someones cowardice. That woman will spend the rest of her life in prison. I’m sorry for going off on a tangent but it cuts like a knife when I think how multi-talented she was and how she was taken away from us.

Rest Easy

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!

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!

Inspiration..

Tell me what inspires you? Some days I find it hard to get inspired. I know it seems like I’m all smiles and rainbows but today I just feel like blah. I’m tired, cold, and cranky and I just wish I could crawl back into my bed. I know today is Monday so that definitely doesn’t help.

I should write but I just don’t feel like it. I don’t have the inspiration pulling at me like I normally do, yes I’m human, yes not everyone feels sparkly. I’m really cold today because this office is freezing, even with a space heater, so that doesn’t help me at all with creative ideas.

I should listen to some amazing music to help lift my spirits, I think some tea would really help too to warm the bones.

Does anyone have any recommendations to help you get inspired? Maybe we can learn from each other. Have to try and get through this Monday! Have a good one everyone!

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?
