Finally finding my way

   Things are really starting to look up over here. Not that they haven’t been already, I’ve had a wonderful marriage so far and live on a tropical island that most refer to as paradise. What could go wrong? Well actually a lot, but that’s for a different day. Let’s just say, I’m finally finding my way.

     My day to day routine consists of:

Waking up around 10:00 A.M.
Feeding and letting my puppies out.
Eating a bowl of Essentially Me cereal, (the knock off Special K stuff).
Then, getting back in bed to sit on the computer and check my Facebook, then my email, and all that other boring good stuff. 


Basically for the past few months, I’ve been writing my first full-length novel entitled Imagine Peace.
I’m almost done with it, but I’m doing some major revisions right now. And thankfully, I have a great friend who is a photographer and is creating my cover. 

Along with that, I’m starting college! WHOO HOO! Although, as excited as I am, I’m a tad disappointed simply because it’s school.

Write Write Write!

Well. it's taken me a while to find what I truly want to do with my life. Now I've narrowed it down to three things, and I plan on doing all of them.

 I've loved writing ever since I can remember. It's a real passion of my mine to become an author and now that I've decided that I can do it, I'm following through. I've had a hard time believing that I could actually be successful in writing, but recently I've been inspired by someone. My husband bought me a Kindle for Christmas, I never really knew the power behind the entire Kindle experience. Because of eBooks, so many independent authors have made their mark in the writing industry. Amanda Hocking was the first indie author I discovered and her story is amazing! Now she's writing books like there's no tomorrow and enjoying every bit of her career. I began writing a book a couple of years ago and unfortunately stopped in the process. Now that I've picked it back up, I intend on finishing and self-publishing it this year. My new years resolution.

Next, I'm starting school this February for Diagnostic Medical Sonography. I absolutely can't wait! I really have missed school and learning. It's time to get back into it.

And thirdly, Human Trafficking. My passion and love for the human kind is to fight human trafficking. I don't know exactly how I'm going to fight it yet, but I will. Whether it simply be to inform and educate people of this crime. So many people have never even heard of human trafficking! (If you haven't it's defined as: Human trafficking is the illegal trade in human beings for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor: a modern-day form of slavery. - Wiki)
That's what everyone can do, educate as many people as you can and get more people inspired to help stop it!
