When I think of Halloween, I remember crisp evenings going door to door with my parents, siblings, and friends. We had jacko-lantern candy baskets and said “Trick or treat!” in our cute little outfits that varied. Some looked like they were straight out of a fairytale, movie, or story. It was a lovely time to just spend with family and friends. Also remember watching Halloween Town with my siblings. That was such an awesome movie!
But, since it is HALLOWEEN TODAY… what’s that mean for WRITERS?
What normal person writes 50,000 words in ONE month?
YES… WAY OVERRATED. I don’t like the word normal.
I am going to write a book this November. I can’t tell you too much about it at the moment, because it’s my secret project! But I really can’t wait to share more with you about it!
Creating A Fit Lifeis launching on October 20th! I am so excited about this book. It’s an inspiring book that will encourage you to create your best life possible, so that you can create your best work.
Being fit and happy is a combination of a few different habits stuck together, such as: fitness, eating, and mental health checks. In Creating A Fit Life, I love introducing the readers to fun activities to help them create a fit life.
Eating is essential. Our food is our natural medicine.
Have you ever had food poisoning? I have. It’s a bad experience. But it’s also a good example of how eating the wrong things can trigger the wrong chemical reactions inside of us.
Eating healthy food will energize us.
Start out small.
Set a few small goals for yourself.
Is that to start eating healthily? Or to drink more water?
Make small challenges to encourage your healthy journey forward. I know from experience that jumping into a ton of healthy things all at once can be hard, so that’s why I recommend picking one thing and focusing on that for awhile before adding another healthy habit into your daily to-dos.
Instagram is an important addition to building a following online. Which, will greatly help you get more readers and email subscribers.

What are some things that you’d like to know about Instagram?
Let me know and I might just answer one of your questions.
I want the people around me to know that I love them. Just yesterday, my great uncle Arnold passed away. He’d been dealing with Alzheimers/dementia and was in a nursing home. It makes me sad. I really hope he knew he was loved by his sisters and their kids and grandkids.
This brought me to think about all the people in my life.
I don’t want there to be a shadow of a doubt in their minds, about whether I loved them or not. I want them to know. Read More
11:30 PM. The red numbers on my alarm clock flashed from my bedside table. I wiped my brow and looked back down at the mess of desk parts laying around me. Crickets chirped from my patio.
I’d finally gotten my bed up, after struggling with it for hours. When it comes to putting things together like this, I suck. That’s why In the past my brother or dad usually put these things together for me.
I rubbed my eyes and pushed myself up and toward my luggage bag to get my bed sheets. The unreadable instruction manual lays on top of the pile like a snowcapped mountain. It’s more like a confusion manual than an instruction manual.
After making my bed, I plopped onto it, sighing. I opened my iPhone and set the alarm for 6am, before leaning back onto my pillow and shutting my eyes. Sleep welcomed me. I felt myself drifting off slowly.

I wish that my summer could be as carefree as they were when I was little. They were the days of laying on the hammock reading all day, while listening to the birds singing and the wind whispering through the tree’s leaves. But now, summer… is a lot like all year long.
I wake up at around 7 am. Go for a run or a walk with my fiancé and then take a shower. This summer I was lucky to have my fiancé here with me for 6-weeks. He spoiled me with amazing breakfast and surprised me with lavish dinners when I came home from a long day at work.
By 9 am, I’m at work. I really love having a job. It really creates a sense of financial peace knowing that you can make enough to meet needs, but also to enjoy life.
But, I’ve also found that I want to have more of a passive income lifestyle. That would allow me to live the way I want to. Read More
