Love Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

I posted the above picture on Facebook Saturday as a joke but then I went back and really looked at it. While I have heard those words many many times before I don’t know if they’ve ever really sunk in before. The fact that I have value as a person and contribute to society isContinue reading “Love Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself”

Thanks 2020, You Can Stop Now

So this year is a mixed bag for me as far as things to be thankful for. Given the last 11ish months, sometimes it’s hard to remember that a lot of really amazing things have happened to me this year. My debut novel was published, I transitioned to working from home with only one panicContinue reading “Thanks 2020, You Can Stop Now”

Neener Neener

So here’s the thing. Sometimes shit happens. It’s inevitable. Like I said in a recent post, you’ve gotta dust yourself off and move on. But I feel like I didn’t emphasize enough how you only lose in that situation if you don’t find a way to grow from it. The way I grew from beingContinue reading “Neener Neener”

It Takes A Village

While it’s not impossible to get through life alone, I’d hate to feel like I ever had to. In that facet of my life I have been very blessed indeed. I have an enviable support system made up of not just friends and family, but also coworkers as well. That’s probably one of the mostContinue reading “It Takes A Village”

BIDEN You ARE The Father

Last week was arduous to say the least. It was the Election Day that would not end. Like groundhog day but so much worse. Day after day last week I tried and failed to unplug and focus on my own life rather than a situation that I had done everything I could to encourage theContinue reading “BIDEN You ARE The Father”

Dust Yourself Off and Move On

This is a bit of a sequel to a previous post about rejection. Because it’s never fun and no matter how much you tell yourself it wasn’t meant to be it still smarts a bit. Especially when you give your all to something only to discover it’s not going to work out. I’m not gonnaContinue reading “Dust Yourself Off and Move On”

Screw The Status Quo

Oops, I did it again. I decided to leave the cushy, comfy, familiar job I had and had mastered in favor of the unknown. It was an impulsive decision that I was hyped about for a day before I began my traditional spiral into regret induced despair. I’m big on second guessing myself. I don’tContinue reading “Screw The Status Quo”

Stagnation: The Silent Killer

Personally, I love having a routine. Especially in these uncertain times, a little bit of certainty can go a long way to calming the anxiety that lurks in the dark alleys of my mind. But too much of any one thing is going to end up hurting you in the long run. That is howContinue reading “Stagnation: The Silent Killer”

Follow Your Dreams a.k.a. Albutebuddies

So this is an image completely unrelated to my writing and seemingly out of left field for my readers. Let me explain: I was recently prescribed an inhaler. So I had the above conversation with my neighbor and good friend Amanda and an idea came to me. What if I had a sticker made ofContinue reading “Follow Your Dreams a.k.a. Albutebuddies”

Marketing Takes WORK

In the above images you will note that. In the whole of 2019, I got just under 3000 views to my website. Just over halfway through 2020 and I’m pretty close to hitting those numbers again. I attribute this to many factors: my book releasing, a concerted effort on my part, and the dystopian novelContinue reading “Marketing Takes WORK”
