No One Likes Disappointment.

You know that feeling when something doesn’t go your way, the crushing despair and disappointment you feel, when you are notified of bad news. It feels like someone has taken a stab at you in the dark, there’s a sudden, and unexpected pain. You clamber helplessly and try to correct your footing. For a terrifying moment there’s panic and fear.

You have a strong spirit, so quickly you gather yourself, and let the disappointing news set in. It feels like someone has pulled your bleeding heart from your chest, and crushed it, as you watch while your life essence succumbs nothingness.Your soul has been extracted from your body, and is no longer more than just a breathing, living shell…

Dramatic; I know, I enjoy drama, but I hope you never experience having your heart ripped out unexpectedly in front of you, please do be careful, and try to refrain from such things, as I’m sure it would be very unpleasant.

It’s unfortunate that as overly dramatic as these feelings may seem, it is indisputable that disappoint never gets any easier, not the 2nd, the 3rd, or even 100th.

It’s what you chose to do afterwards that’s important.

It’s okay to take your disappointment to heart.The harder you hurt, the stronger you’ll be when you rise and heal again. Moping is fine, but don’t mope in despair forever. Don’t be too discouraged, and don’t let disappointment get the best of you. Always have the courage to pick yourself up and try just one more time.

If you’re feeling down right now here’s some great epic, moping music to comfort you in your despair. Feel free to listen on repeat. Seriously, it’s a good song.

Epic Moping Music Here.

Thought of The Week. 8/11/17

Thought of The Week: “Anything that you believe in is worth fighting for.”

Sure, it’s easy to drown yourself in what seems to be constant doubt, whether you’re worried about what other people will feel or say, or just because you’re deciding to step out, and take a stab at something that you’ve never done.

It’s okay to be afraid, to put your heart out there for something that, not everyone agrees with, or understands. The painful truth is, not everyone will understand. Even those closest to us don’t always support the decisions we make, but only we know, what’s best for us.

Sometimes our potential to be great becomes restricted by thoughts and negativity imposed on us, not just by ourselves, but by others. That is why it’s important for us to push past all these success crippling fears, and doubts.

Silence thoughts of those who would attempt to sway you from your goals and dreams, and dare to go after what you believe.

At the end of the day, when they lie in their bed and close their eyes, they are not you.

Your thoughts, your feelings, your goals, your beliefs, are all apart of what makes you, you. If something is important to you, whether it’s a thought, dream, project, idea, etc, then it’s definitely worth whatever it takes. Don’t let anyone stand in your way. No matter what anyone says keep striving at it; one day it will all be worth it.

AND REMEMBER!

5 Reasons To Finally Do That Thing You’ve Been Thinking Of.

We all have that thing that’s been locked away, deep in our minds from the furthest reaches of our day to day thoughts. We’ve considered doing “it” for quite sometime, but somehow, we always find an excuse to put it off; whether it be writing that long awaited book, taking that dream vacation, trying out that brand new restaurant or fitness class, or even, striking up the nerve to ask that cute guy or girl on a date… Continue reading 5 Reasons To Finally Do That Thing You’ve Been Thinking Of.

Flash Into The Past

Yesterday I stumbled upon an old file containing a novel I had been working on years ago; you know the kind, the one inspired by your awkward teenage life, and your infatuation with Werewolves and magic. Continue reading Flash Into The Past

Dear Future Literary Agent.

Hi, how are you? Good I suppose, and busy, really busy with all your clients, and authors, and conventions, and editors and book sales, not to mention those loads of proposals… All that must be extremely exhausting, yet as an agent that must be really satisfying.

I can not wait to have my own work in your hands.

If you are wondering why I am writing to you today, it’s because I want you know that I love you, even though you don’t know who I am, or may have already decided to discard my query email as spam.

It’s not love in any weird romantic kind of way, but just because you are who you are.

Mr. or Ms., you may or may not know how hard it is to remain calm and patiently wait for a response that may never come, from someone who doesn’t even know I exist.

Just the thought alone that, you may have already acknowledged my words, but ignored them terrifies me.

Here I am waiting, some unknown author, among a sea of your other pleading and dire requests, just wondering if possibly you would even consider representing me.

I’m sure if you were to put all of us unpublished authors in a room with you, you’d more than likely would be trampled to death.

“Here’s my manuscript, take it, please!” “Just look at it,” we would all yell and shout.

We would probably pull hair, bite arms, throw punches if we had to, just to get to you, to have a moment of your time, which even then, still may result in a dream crushing, “sorry, not interested.”

You’re like a God in our eyes.

You have the power to make us matter in the face of great publishers, or leave us dangling, desperately trying to cling to our hopes.

I’m sure none of this matters to you, because as a God in the publishing world, you ultimately have the power to make our dreams into a reality. You get to decide if we are worthy enough to have our story told to the world. It takes your faith in us, to make us writers great.

So I love you. I love what you do.

I love that you exist, holding the torch for unknown writers to pass through the dark, and winding road to success. And while I may not matter to you, you certainly matter to me.

Patiently waiting for your call, Yours truly,

An Unpublished Author.

P.S. if you’re having a bad day this might cheer you up, or make you very confused. Either way I believe this is an accurate declaration for how I feel about you. The Brother’s Riedell; I Like You

Introductions

First off I’m a 22 year old mom of 16 month old twins. Anyone with kids, babies, or toddlers knows how grueling the task of being a full time parent to one child is, and I just happened to get lucky with two, on the first try.

Being a parent is great. You get to see all your sweat, and tears and efforts manifest into a growing person that you created, and although their smiles are precious, and their laughs adorable, we know it isn’t always pretty…

That’s where my love for writing comes in. In those spare moments once the kids are asleep, I get to delve into an alternate world completely different than my own.

There’s just something about being able to immerse yourself in a world in another time or another place; something so satisfying about filling blank space with people, places, and things, you’d never get a chance to see in real life, but whose problems, joy and sadness feel like your own.

Since I was 13 years old, becoming a well known author has always been my dream. Just the thought of having my own works published in a tangible, bound, hard or paperback book brings a smile to my face, or to know another human being has enjoyed something I wrote fills my soul with happiness.

Through this blog I will convey the struggles of being a full time mom and a writer, a clash of two worlds where dreams and reality meet.
