Be Yourself?

Be yourself.

You know, who you really are.

People will respect you, honor you, value the truth of your own being.

But only if it fits what we value, what we accept, what we cherish and accept as normal

decent

good

cool

realistic

et cetera

Be yourself, but don’t be too funny, too silly, too honest, too good, to nice, unbitchy, unsnooty, unpretentious, unbothered.

Be yourself, but don’t be too different, be like us, because we only like what we are used to, we only like what reminds us of ourselves.

Be yourself, because it will make you happy, but don’t upset us, or offend us, or make us feel uncomfortable.

Be yourself.

Updates and things…

Hello Groovy People,

So it is July and things are going well.  I’m working a ton and trying to stay motivated with my writing.  A few weeks ago I went to Bookcon in New York, and it was pretty interesting.  To be honest, travelling and being around large groups of people is mentally exhausting.  So I only stayed about 3-4 hours. I did enjoy getting free merch and seeing the different displays.  I took a lot of mental notes and will try to plan for next year with possibly a children’s book.

Recently, I have been working on a short story which was inspired by a picture I found online.  It is a digital drawing by a really good artist.  I’ll get into more detail when the story is finished.

I am also preparing for my 4 tests, 3 of which I am taking this month!  I am very very very nervous and anxious, and just about stressed out.  However, it is something I must do, and I am prepared to do what I can to make my new goals come to fruition.

I will also try to update my blog more…but we shall see.

 

Until then…

Melody

Hum of the drum

the melody speaks

to the voices

within my heart

ticking with rhthym

beat by beat

my heart flutters

with the ambient

soothing echo of waves

a crescendo of voices

beat simultaneously

their laughter infiltrates

stinging with sensations

of happy vibes

begging to be heard

begging to be loved

begging to be felt

I spread my lips to say

I hear you, I hear you

Miss Bliss

She follows the path of serenity

down to the valley of ease

pastel colors brighten her way

to the ever winding road of peace

love is always a few steps away

glistening the waters with tranquility

she breathes a sigh of soothing sounds

to the fanciful music of laughter that follows

within each breath she takes

the cool air retreats

down her body and into her soul

filling it with the relief of serene stillness

that relaxes her gently

forever at peace

forever in love

she closes her eyes to sleep

Update: BookExpo + Being a Busy Bee

Hello Groovy People,

I haven’t been on this in months!  Wowzers! I have been super busy with work and trying to go back to school (kinda) and working on making my book, Journey’s End, a hit. Things have been steadily moving forward.  It takes a ton of energy to not give up.  Besides dealing with a few things, I have been making goals and keeping an optimistic mindset.  (Better said than done)

I will have my book, Journey’s End, on the New Title Showcase at the BookExpo in New York!  More information coming soon!

Until then…

Dabbling in Music…

Hello Groovy People

So I recently joined SoundCloud and made three tracks.  I had GarageBand on my IPod and played around with some buttons. hahaha

It’s pretty fun and I’ve gotten some great comments.  I’m not a musician by any means, but I do mash buttons like a pro!

I think this is a great way to spread my creativity via other means.  But anywho, enjoy!

By the way, my “artist” name is Digital Flower!

Until then…

November is here! Reflection…

Hello Groovy People

It is finally November and the weather is becoming cooler.  This global warming is no joke.  Anywho, I am still writing and thinking about joining more writing competitions.  It is hard sometimes to keep at it, especially when I become exhausted physically and mentally due to my inner demons.  Yet I will prevail!

I do try to read every night and do positive affirmations in the morning and night.  I find that this helps me stay calm throughout the day and not overreact to stressful situations. Thinking about myself positively is hard, but I do try.  I think I’ll make an entire post about self love.  I’m still learning it, even at 29, so bear with me.  But all is well.

Until then…
