As I sit outside on this glorious day I’m reminded how beautiful the world really is. I’m really grateful for who I am and for what I am. Everyday I scroll through Facebook and I see this happening and that happening, things that aren’t good, and their happening to people just like you and me. I should be grateful for the things that I have and grateful for my health. I am one of those people that complains, complains a lot. That’s just not healthy, so why do it? Is it because I can’t help it? Is it because it gives me something to do? Is it because I like to hear my own voice? Who knows truly why except for me, and honestly I really don’t know why. I know being positive would be much more motivating then being negative, but I am a creature of habit. I truly can’t help it. I even watched those motivating videos and I’m like yes you can do this, but then I go right back to being negative. I’m not writing this to be negative, I’m writing this because right now I’m positive. I’m positive because I have a family that loves me, I have a husband that adores me, I have 4 wonderful pets that I wouldn’t trade for the world they are considered my kids. I have my health and everyone around me is in good health, and I’m so thankful and grateful for that. I had a biopsy done last week on my leg that the dermatologist has seen, but thankfully I received a phone call that said I’m in the clear.

Just remember to be grateful for something. Even if there are horrible things going on around you, just look inside yourself and see the good. Nobody can take that away from you. I’m grateful for writing. It may not be much and I know I’m not accomplished but it’s what I enjoy. Would I love to be successful at it? Of course I would but I’m grateful for even trying. It never hurts to try, because if you don’t try you’ll never know.

Did you know birds are my favorite animal? They are and they are because they don’t have a care in the world. They fly around from place to place, grab food, and continue on. They can fly high up in the sky, take in the world and continue on. I think they’re amazing. Today and this past week there has been a white bird around my yard. I think he was someone’s bird. It’s a Parakeet after all, I mean how many wild birds are Parakeets? I want to capture him and keep him but he won’t allow to come near him, plus I think my husband wouldn’t let me keep it. But he looks lonely and he’s all by himself sitting up in a tree. I feel bad for the poor bird. Hopefully he’ll come to his senses and fly to me.

Okay enough for today, I know it’s Friday. I hope everyone has a good weekend!! I’ll talk to you soon.

All Over

Well folks it’s all over. The show I mean. I can’t believe how quick the time went. It was an amazing experience though. I met a lot of amazing people that I was glad to have met. I’m actually thinking about putting a book together about all of us. It would be fiction of course with a lot of drama of course. Because hello you can’t have a novel about drama when it takes place in drama haha. Okay I’m such a nerd for saying that 🙂

In other news my new novel From Within is coming out very soon. I can’t wait!! I’m working on the sequel to this particular book so that’s fun. It is fairly different then the first novel that I wrote. Don’t forget to check out Braver Than Yesterday on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

I really want to talk about something completely different so bare with me. Have you ever did the same thing over and over again and one day it just really gets to you? I feel like lately that’s what is going on with me. I feel like there is more to life then just this. I love to write and I love to blog. It’s what I’m most passionate about and I wish that this is what I could do for the rest of my life as a full time gig. Unfortunately I need money to live, so I have this full time job that I can’t really deal with anymore. I wish I could just leave it all behind. I want to see the world. I’ve never been anywhere except for a few states surrounding me. I feel like there is so much more to life then just this, I don’t know maybe I’m having an epiphany. I’m sure it will pass but I don’t want it to. I’d rather go out and see the world and experience it and write about it. Who knows maybe one day.
