I may be too happy?

I may be too happy?

This is definitely one of those posts that’s going to need some context. For the last couple of months, I haven’t been very happy. I won’t go into the details as to why I haven’t been my usually happy self. Besides the fact that it would take too long, why I’ve been unhappy isn’t the point. What is the point is that recently, I made the conscientious decision to take control of my happiness. I decided once and for all to not focus so much on the things that have made me sad and to focus all of my attention on what makes me happy. It’s gotten to the point where everyday I actively seek out things that make me happy.

It’s only been a week of this and oh my goodness! Is it possible that it may have worked too well? I’m serious. Not like it’s a bad thing, but I may be too happy now. Let me explain. I tried to do a rant woe-is-me post the other day and I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t bring myself to spread the negativity. Then there ‘s times during the day when I feel myself being negative or rude about something, I actually stop myself in mid-thought, tell myself this thought or something I said was very un-happy of me and then I completely end the thought before it has time to fester. In the last week, my mood has skyrocketed. I feel even better than I did before when I was my “usually happy self.” It amazes me how a simple change in attitude can change everything. I’m happy. Actually happy and I look forward to finding things everyday that make me happy and that I can share with others.

I think you all should try this, too. Maybe just for an hour or a day or even a week, decide to be happy. Don’t let yourself wallow in misery or self-loathing. Be happy. Find what makes you happy and if it makes you really happy, share that happiness with others. I use the hashtag #whatmademehappytoday when I share online, so you’ll be able to see what’s been making me happy. Let’s spread the happiness and see how the world changes.

Before you go, in the comments, tell me what makes you happy.

This is Actually Happening

This is Actually Happening

Yesterday, I was looking at the cover design my sister created for Last Look Back. (She’s awesome by the way, check out her blog thejunoesque.com for more of her designs.) I’m looking at the cover and I’m like this is actually happening. In less than two months, I am releasing my first book. THIS IS HAPPENING!!! I always like to update you all with my feelings especially with my writing journey and the book coming out very soon. With these posts, I try to find a picture that fully encompasses my current feelings, but I just couldn’t find one that said everything that I was going through. So, today we’re going to shake things up a little and I’m going to tell you all how I’m currently feeling through the use of gifs. If you happen to not know what gifs are, they’re moving pictures and they will show you the exact range of emotions that come with a Book Launch.

And now…

I look at the calendar and see that November 14th will be here very quickly.

Crazy as it sounds, but I’ll probably do it again.

Because writing novels is the best because I get to share my work with you.

The End.

 

That’s my story. I hope you like it. Now, it’s announcements time:

September 22, 2014: “Choose the Cover” – I’m torn about which is the best Cover Design for the Last Look Back Cover, so I’m going to have you all vote which is the better cover. I won’t tell you which one I like the best until after voting. Voting ends October 9, 2014.

October 10, 2014: “Cover Reveal” – On my instagram @luv2rite1922, I will be revealing which design I’m picking. Be following me, to be one of the first to find out which cover it will be.

And finally…

From October 1, 2014 until the Book Launch, I will be doing a Promo Storm. What’s a Promo Storm, you may ask? It’s my version of creating buzz for my new book. For 40+ days, I will be posting about all things Last Look Back. I’ll be giving you all a behind the scenes look into a lot of the writing choices I’ve made and interesting things that have happened on  my writing journey. By November 14, you will know a lot more about Last Look Back than you probably would ever want to know. You’re welcome.

So, those are my announcements and gif story. I hope you all are getting excited. I can’t believe this is actually happening. 🙂
