#SelfCare - Do You Act or React?

What a wonderful quote to find in my newsfeed today! I was listening to a daily meditation lesson this morning on the theme of “shempa” and I feel this goes hand in hand with it.

Do you ACT or REACT?

Do you find yourself easily hooked into drama or others who seem to want to share their negativity with you?

Do experiences from the past that deeply hurt you still hold power enough to sway you from feeling balanced and focused?

I can only answer this personally ... yes. While I’ve definitely seen a lot of improvement within myself, I know that it’s something I still struggle with. I’ve seen a lot of great talks recently - specifically one that talked about realizing that often times when someone has an issue with you, it stems from their own capacity to love and accept themselves. I know that it is at the root of my own insecurities and my interactions with others. Today’s meditation reminded me I am responsible for me and that I can choose to view each situation knee deep in reactive emotion or to evaluate it from a calm outer advantage point.

I can chose to sink or to rise
I can chose to acknowledge my feelings and then let go of what doesn’t serve me.
I can chose to empower myself and take a deep breath.

I love this quote so much! It goes wonderfully with my commitment to taking better care of myself, both physically, mentally, and emotionally.

I am worth it.
You are worth it.
Fall in love with your life.

WEEKEND READING ALERT! Are you looking for a new story to escape into?

Visit Havenwood Falls with the newest installment called NOWHERE TO HIDE by me! Sedona and Micah can’t wait to meet you all ❤️❤️
“Please.” One word. It was all I could utter as my mind raced to find the perfect thing to convince him this was a horrible misunderstanding. The problem, however, was I knew this could’ve been avoided had I been open with him. Countless conversations flittered through my mind, showing me missed opportunities where I could’ve broached the topic.
Micah had entered the meeting I’d arranged blind. I’d assumed my aunt would stick strictly to what we’d discussed, and now she’d reduced me to an ass who looked like she’d been hiding something from the man she was dating.
In his eyes, I had betrayed him.

Because there’s another fact Sedona is painfully aware of . . .

#MaleCharacterMonday - Meet Maxwell!

#MCM (Male Character Monday)

With NOWHERE TO HIDE releasing in just 11 days, I thought you all might like to meet Maxwell! His muse is the swoony Tim Omundson which made him FUN to write!

Maxwell lives in Havenwood Falls, more specifically in Shelf Indulgence. He's a ghost who's pretty tight lipped about his past but is VERY opinionated about how Sedona lives her life. He can be pretty snarky when he chooses to be, but generally his heart is always in the right place.

Here's a snippet about him ....
A deep, familiar voice answered. “One of us needs to leave this store and have a life, Sedona. And considering I can’t, that leaves the burden firmly on your shoulders.”
Maxwell appeared beside me, his fingers twirling the end of his mustache. I often wondered if he realized he did that—if it was a nervous habit he’d failed to break. I couldn’t quite cross out an alternative thought that it was his way of impersonating a villain because right now, my dearest friend wasn’t enabling my cowardice at all. He was supposed to agree wholeheartedly with me and suggest I spend the evening secluded quietly in my apartment with a delicious glass of wine and a book.
“I still think you made that up, Maxwell. I’m sure if you tried hard enough, you could leave and go haunt Willow over at Coffee Haven. You know . . . expand your horizons and all.”
A look of horror and disapproval blazed across his ghostly features.
Did I forget to mention Maxwell was a ghost?
“I’ll pretend I didn’t hear you suggest that, young lady. Do you really think I’d stay here and witness your weekly neurotic diatribe about the woes of dating if I could simply waltz out of here?”

You can read more about Maxwell when Nowhere To Hide (A Havenwood Falls novella) releases March 23, 2018!

#Rambling - A Little Lost For Words ...

I’m a little lost for words today. Some may see this as a worn out wallet, the design fading. This is my father-in-law’s wallet and I wish he was alive for me to tell him how much this means to me.

I miss him. I’m grateful that we had a chance to welcome him into our home and provide him with a safe place to call his own. He often said that it was the best he had felt in years and I miss our daily conversations.

I wasn’t always close with him. Things had happened in the past that had upset me so we didn’t talk for a long time. That’s why when I saw his wallet today - this wallet - it hit me. I gave him this wallet. That design is over the Sydney Opera House. It being well worn means he used it a lot. And I can’t help but think every time he pulled it out of his pocket, he thought of me. Whether it was to offer a prayer or a thought, he loved me ... even when I let hurt feelings get in the way of things.

This wallet means the world to me. It’s become that symbol of love - that he never stopped. Whenever I come in to talk with my mother-in-law, I see it and hold it tight.

Don’t wait too long to make peace with others.
Don’t stop telling those around you how much you love them.
Don’t miss opportunities to heal.

I miss my father-in-law so much. I’ve struggled the past few months between denial that he’s gone and sadness that I can’t pretend anymore. I wish I could have just one more conversation, one more hug, one more night of watching the Diamondbacks play and laughing at him yelling at the TV.

I miss the fact I didn’t know about his wallet. I would’ve told him how much it touched my heart and thank him for loving me. He’ll always be my Popperoni.

#TeaserTuesday - Nowhere To Hide

Eep! March 23rd is right around the corner and soon you'll all meet Micah and Sedona! Are you ready for some SWOON #HavenwoodFalls style? I seriously love this story and this town!

Micah leaned in, placing his forehead against mine, our noses barely touching. “I didn’t expect to find you, Sedona.” His warm breath fanned across my lips.
“Yet here we are.”
He leaned in again, whispering against my mouth, “I guess this changes everything.”
