** The first two books in my six part dystopian series have officially made their way out into the world! Check them out!
For the sake of blogging and self-exploration and contemplation, I’ve been slowly making my way through answering questions from this list.
Today’s question: What three words would you use to describe the last three months of your life?
- PEACEFUL. I’m very glad that I’ve stuck to my decision to not allow people into my life, or allow people to continue to be a part of my life, who don’t treat me with the kindness and respect that I deserve. I very much enjoy living a peaceful life with zero drama, life is only complicated when you allow it to be.
- OPTIMISTIC. I’ve discovered a lot of opportunities for my writing lately, and I’m excited about where they will take me and my novels. I don’t think I’m going to get rich anytime soon but the era of the indie author is upon us and it makes me very glad that I chose not to go the “traditional” route because I cherish the freedom you have as an indie author and if you can find your own success within that niche (as many are finding, and have found) what could be better?
- SETTLED. I don’t mean this in a negative way as if I’m “settling” for something, but a great deal of my life has been waiting for the next thing. “I can’t wait to get out of High School.” “I can’t wait to finish college!” “When am I going to find the man I want to marry…” but I’m in a place in life where I feel like I’ve achieved things that are important to me and I’ve found my place in the world, so to speak. I’m not in a holding pattern or waiting for things to happen, I’m living the things important to me every day and although I still have goals, I don’t feel like I’m “just holding on” until -this- happens, anymore. I’m content with life today, and optimistic about where life will lead me tomorrow.
