5 news worthy things that I love to talk about 

Standard

Newbies, up incoming, indies. All of these words mean that there’s beautiful things to be heard, read, or watched that aren’t getting the press and media they need. 

I’m a lover of discovering new and exciting things. From tech to entertainment. I seek out and search for things and people to listen to as they lend their voices to society. 

I picked out five creative wonders to share with you all and one bonus film that I’m sure you’ve all hear of by now.

Into The Woods

By Carla Godfrey

A tale about one woman’s journey through life.

  

Power of Words

By  S. Kaur 

Storytelling and enlightenment go hand and hand. Our minds are the gatekeepers to our realities. S. Kaur teaches us the power that we can access inside our souls.

  

City of sound

Contemporary music with a twist of rock. This indie band is in a league of their own. Check out their music and website cityofsoundmusic.com

 

Deadly Icons

By Chet Adams  
Who doesn’t love suspense and murder? This book has them both. The plot thickens as well as pulls you into an era from the past. Soon to be released check out a preview on his website drchetadamsforum.com

  
To round up some great entertainment and exciting work. I wouldn’t be a real superhero fan if I didn’t include today’s newly released Black Panther. The anticipation for this movie has been hugely important. The weekend is around the corner and what a great way to relax and enjoy it.

This little light inside 

Standard

Read through the different ways to succeed in writing. From promoting to socializing. From telling your friends and family to support you to get out and sell the books from the trunk of your car. I probably would if I had one. 

I remember walking the streets of California passing out flyers to this blog. I made some rather cheap looking promotional pages affordable enough to pass around. 

It felt good to do busy work. It feels good to feel like I’m doing something right. Unfortunately for there isn’t a lot of times that I feel like I’m going the right way. From marriages to parenting I’ve gotten it wrong. From job to job I’ve floated by enough to eat. I feel like I’m connected everywhere yet I fit nowhere. 

  
Writing is all that I’ve got. 

A window into my soul and a piece of gratitude for being able to keep expressing the pain. Yet I find thankfulness in the day. Always. At least I’m here. I don’t always want to be. Times like this morning where I’d rather fade to black like Amy Whinehouse. Take a drink too many. Swallow a pill more than I’m supposed to. Scream out into the darkness of the night” Lord take me now!”

  
Maybe things will fall in place. Maybe my little will mean a lot. Maybe one man will love me enough, and not to need anyone else to wet his dick for a night. Destroy all the love that was built and actually have the trust that all say that they want. Even they are usually the first to go out and do something untrustworthy.

There’s days I feel unworthy of breathing. I wonder why I continue to wake up in place that I don’t understand. Maybe the divine has a plan for me,because I’m so tired of trying to figure out one. I’d like to see a clearer picture of where to go, but the roads are all filled with fog and the paths are fuzzy at best. This world is a test and I feel like I’m failing more times than I’m passing. My grade is a D++.

Just enough to make it another day and fight. To spread light. To find good insight instead of evil egos.

Yes, I’m grateful for the creative ability to write. It’s opened doors I never expected to enter. Taking me to journeys I never planned on going. Gotten me through tough times and today let’s me tell you the story of my aching heart.

  
The battle of live to fight another day is daily.

One wrong thought on the wrong day. At the wrong hour and it could certainly cost me my REAL life.  

This time is precious perceptions of how to keep going when the weight of my inner galaxies build up all the negative energies being purposely pushed at me. Feeling like the mountain that I can’t climb because I have to come from under the rock first.

  
I’m just grateful that I have enough strength to try again.

I’m thankful I have been gifted the mindset to trust again. 

I have enough forgiveness to forgive again and again, because I believe second chances sometimes need to be third or fourth when you have absolutely no idea what your doing. 

I have gratitude for the blessing of writing. It is not just my  gift it is my birthright. 

Last day of grateful January and it didn’t come easy. I didn’t lazily wake up and get another day. I had to fight my thoughts to be here and it took me to breakdown to get up.

Small things 

Standard

Wake up and the alarm rings. Thank goodness for it be without it I would probably sleep through the whole day. 

  
Turn on the television and watch a show. Thank goodness for it because it is entertaining when I want to zone out. 

Walk into the bathroom and brush my teeth. Who ever made toothbrushes are the best because what kind of world was there when breath was funky. 

  
Obviously I joke about curtain things, but what a gift it is to have the little things in life. Things that I barely think about being grateful for. 

Day 27 of grateful January and what daily thing do I use that I’m grateful for? I’m grateful for my comfy blanket. It keeps me warm and wraps me in softness. Lawd knows that I love softness.

Traditionally Thankful 

Standard

Being a mishmash of cultural differences. I haven’t fully been introduced to my traditional advances. 

  
 Being as it may an African American has to go out and search for the family traditions that were lost along the way. 

I have Native American ancestry I am also of Creole and Asian decent. From what I have been told. Our family is still doing DNA testing for full results. 

I’ve learned to create my own family traditions. Some that go along with the norms of society and some that are specialized and specific to my own. 

  
I watch a historical movie or show with my children on Dr. King’s federal holiday. I bake cookies on cookie day in December. I make thanksgiving dinner. 

For birthdays we celebrate all day from the moment we wake up til one falls asleep. We try to all see one another for the New Year. 

Day 23rd of grateful January. What traditions are you thankful for? 

Today I’m thankful that I’m alive.

Author in training 

Standard

I joke about how hard the journey has been from writing to publishing my books. In truth it’s been a very slow journey. Turtle slow. 

I chose to finish my first book and make it available just to fulfill my goal of becoming an author. I didn’t and still don’t know the ends and outs of the book business. I continue to find out new information daily. I have been blessed to even have one book let alone four. 

I see so many indie authors and mainstream authors experience the art of telling a story about life and exploring fictional characters that are made up of different dimensions and different directions. 

I find it exciting to branch out my mind and make a figure of my imagination and thoughts into pages of a book. 

One day I will write a novel, but for now I’m enjoying the short stories of novellas. 

Are there any more authors that can feel where I’m coming from? I’d love to hear your experiences with writing.

Here are my paperback books and I also have an Ebook. All are available on Amazon, Kindle and Barnes and Noble.

Renewal season 

Standard

Flowers blooming, birds flying, butterflies all around. Blue skies, sunshine and love all around. 

  
Yes, you guessed it I’m talking about spring. 

The season of renewal. When hibernation is over and the animals once tucked away have come out to play. 

It’s something about when the temperature changes from cold to warm that makes me want to go exploring. To get outdoors and exercise to inhale the fresh air. 

  
The planets are growing and I feel at one with the planet. Grateful for the leaves on the trees. The change in the length of the days. Each season has it’s own benefits, but spring has always had a strong place in my heart. 

Day 15 of grateful January and the question is what season are you grateful for?

I’d love to hear your favorite season and hope that you all have a fabulous Monday.

So very grateful for today 

Standard

Thankful Thursday. I’m having happy thoughts about holidays that have passed. My oldest memories of holidays start before I was seven. When I was young enough to trick or treat and get new Christmas toys.

I love holidays and how they make me feel. They give me hope when times are down and laughter when times together brings me peace. I think holidays were made just to bring a break to the everyday world. 

  
A little of the universe’s magic into our minds and hearts. Today I’m grateful for the winter holidays as a whole. The season is just filled with joys and new beginnings. 

  
As we enter this season of love. I have to admit that my heart is opening up and embracing everything that love can bring. 

  
January is a month that I’m dedicating to my attitude of gratitude. Today’s question is what holiday are you grateful for. Day 11 and my mind is on hope,growth,change and love.
