Adios Pantalones Update

Ryan Fisher's book is coming! If you've already pre-ordered it on Amazon then you might have gotten a notification email about it. I pushed the release date back a month because I'm not quite finished yet and I don't like to rush my stories. You guys don't like it when I rush either, so.. Ryan's gotten a little delay. :) He will now be released on March 7th.

I'm so excited about this book you guys! Ryan is.. well, he's Ryan. He's so damn loveable and the brothers are all so funny when they're together. I absolutely love being in their world. Plus, this is the first time I've ever written about a single mom and that seems so crazy to me, considering that I was one for so many years.

I absolutely love writing about things I know, things I've experienced and things I hope for. Writing a single mom is making it very easy to do exactly that- even if I want to smack some sense into her character at times. lol

I know you guys are going to love this story and I can't wait for you to read it. You know, once I finish it. HA

Until then, I hope you have a great holiday. I hope that you are surrounded by love, friends, family and all the things that make you happy and bring you joy (aren't those the same things? I think they are lol).

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a quick note to tell all my stateside peeps, Happy Thanksgiving!  I'm not sure what you do, or how you spend the holiday, but I hope you are surrounded by loved ones (in all capacities-  siblings, friends, etc).

I hope you are thankful. It's so easy to lose sight and focus on the things that we don't have-  to get caught up in all the things we're still fighting for - all the goals we still want to accomplish or achieve. It's so easy to feel bad. But do me a favor, will you? Right now.. take a breath... hell, take one more and let all the things that you DO have fill your thoughts. Think about the people who love you. Think about the people who support you and want to see you happy and successful.

Stop beating yourself up. Let all of that negativity go. Love yourself. Love your life. It's not always perfect and it's definitely not always easy... but it's yours. No one gets your life but you. Make it great. Even when it's hard. :)

My love for baseball

For those of you who don't know, I'm a HUGE baseball fan!  Mainly, my boys in blue... The Los Angeles Dodgers! So unless you've been living under a rock, or you really, really, really, hate sports, then you know that my boys are currently playing in the World Series.  #LA #ThisTeam

These games are giving me heart attacks! They're some of the best played, most stressful ball games I've ever sat through and watched. It's the highest of highs, followed by the lowest of lows- but it makes for some amazing baseball.

With that being said, if you love baseball the way I do and you want to combine your love of sports with your love of romance reading, then you have got to read The Perfect Game series! Jack F'n Carter is the hottest baseball player in the game. Have you met him yet?  Go fall in love today with my most favorite loveable screw-up. :)

#23 on the field, #1 in your heart.

Choosing to be happy

If you've read Guy Hater (if you haven't, what the heck are you waiting for???) then you'll notice a theme that runs throughout the story. This isn't a spoiler, so you can keep reading. LOL  I wrote a lot about finding your happiness. About realizing when you're no longer joyful anymore and finding the courage to do something about it. Because you see, I know all too well what it's like to wake up day after day and feel like being happy is an illusion.... something no longer meant for you. 

And honestly, what kind of shit is that?!   

As humans, I think we tend to settle. We settle in our jobs. We settle for a paycheck. We settle into routines. We settle into what's expected of us. We settle into obligations. We settle in our relationships. We settle into roles we think define us and we stay there for way too long because we're afraid to rock the boat and make a change. Why? Because what's on the other side of everything we've settled for is the great unknown. And the unknown is scary as hell.

We get used to being unhappy. Let that sink in for a second. We. Get. Used. To. Being. Unhappy.
It becomes a part of our daily lives and in essence, a part of who we are. We're comfortable in our misery. It's always there with us; in the morning when we wake up, in each breath we take during the day, at night when we close our eyes. We know we're not happy, but we accept it. It's not that bad, right? Sure, it could be better, but it could also be worse. Thinking about making a change feels super uncomfortable. Even if it's the right thing to do. Even if it's the best thing for not only yourself, but for everyone else as well....  change is scary. 

What if we're wrong? What if we make a mistake? What if our misery is only an illusion? And then, what if I'M the problem here? What if it's me?

These are all questions we ask ourselves in the midst of our fear. And the answers can never truly be revealed to us until after we've done the hard thing. We can't know how we're going to feel about a situation until we've changed it. 

Sometimes you have to put yourself first. And that's okay. It's okay to want to be happy. It's okay to want to find joy in your daily life and to release the things (and people) who no longer bring you that. I had to learn this lesson. It wasn't easy. 

Being happy is a choice. Settling in a relationship that no longer makes you feel good, or no longer brings you joy... is a choice. Staying for all the wrong reasons... is a choice. And we're so overrun with guilt over every single decision we make that we forget who we are while we're busy living for everyone else.

I've said it a million times before, but I'm not sure I've ever said it here on my blog, so here goes:
It's easier to stay in a relationship that has run its course (marriage, dating, business, school, etc) than it is to leave. Even if you're so damn unhappy and just getting through each 24-hour period one hour at a time... it's still easier to stay. You know what to expect when you stay. It is so much harder to leave. You can know it's the right thing to do- you can feel it in every part of your body and soul that you need to leave before it basically kills your spirit, your drive, your ambition-  and still, you'll struggle to say the words out loud... you'll struggle to find the strength to walk away.... you'll struggle in your decision to fight for yourself. 

Sometimes our lives truly begin on the other side of those choices we're too afraid to make. But we'll never know if we don't try. You have to fight for your happiness. No one else is going to do it for you. They can't. They're too busy trying to remember to fight for theirs.  

And I know it's not easy. Trust me, I know. But I also know that at some point you'll look back at your life and see clearly all the time you've wasted wondering if things were going to change when you knew in your gut that they never were. And you'll find yourself grieving the loss of that time because you can never get it back. You can only move forward. Even if it's just one tiny step. *deep breath*  You've got this.
