No one understands what it means to meet sjocks in complete silence, to smile in front of situations that draws you to cry, no one understands it means to boil From the inside while you are at at height of stability 💫
I have a few things! I just passed one of them (turned 20 😱), but in the nearish future I’m super excited for my FairyLoot Queen of Nothing box to arrive, Christmas, and seeing Michael Buble live next year!
Книга готова. Что дальше? Точнее даже готов только текст.
А дальше - советы из интернета.
Первое, что я сделала - это зарегестрировалась в ЛитРэс.
Это довольно простая процедура, после которой можно загрузить свой текст. Далее выбирается обложка, лицензия; добавляется информация о книге. И все это "улетает" на проверку к модераторам.
Несколько раз мой текст возвращался на доработку. Услуги рекдатуры стоят порядка 3000 рублей.
Еще я выбрала платную лицензию, из условий которой вытекал очень НЕвыгодный для меня, как автора, процент от продаж.
Были проблемы с обложкой: если она не ваша - будут требовать разрешение автора.
Вообщем, после нескольких попыток, я решила, что поищу другие способы явить свету свое творение. Есть маленькая, мизерная вероятность, что я вернусь на площадку ЛитРэс. И это будет только от безысходности.

It’s Ok to Mourn
Another one for cancer season. As I went through the different stages (discovery, fear, readiness, surgery, recovery) I noticed that some of the people in my life had expectations or preferences for how I felt about it. It comes down to the fact that they wanted me to be ok. But often, I wasn’t and this felt like extra weight to carry. I still sometimes struggle with all the change that has occurred since then. It’s mostly for the better but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t lose parts of myself. I truly believe that most change involves some amount of loss, it’s ok to mourn this things even while we grow.
Dime qué es lo que piensas,
sácalo de allí adentro.
Suelta toda esa pena
y llora junto a mi pecho.
Déjame estar contigo, sabes cuanto te quiero.
No dejes que un mal momento
impida el momento nuestro.
Dime qué es lo que piensas,
no escondas el sentimiento;
libera aquellos fantasmas que están deteniendo el vuelo.
Tú sabes que soy tu amigo,
también fui algo más que eso.
No temas llorar conmigo,
tú sabes cuanto te quiero.
What defines us as "successful"? Is it our achievement of own goals, or the achievement of other's ideal goals?
Are we truly special or is the title of "successful" sourced from other people's standards?
I think it's quite silly to define someone smart, based on our own standards and personal bias. I can't say Andy Warhol was dumb simply because he didn't own a billion-dollar company. It's not his goal, its mine; and to label another individual based on your own personal bias is a very sad and unproductive way to lead your life.
That "dumbass" you labeled and was repelled by could have been a good best friend. Just because they didn't have YOUR ideal life doesn't make them less valuable as a human than you. Think about it; your idol could be looking down at you simply because you're not on par with them. Looking down at others because they lead a life that is not ideal for you is simple ARROGANCE. You don't have standards, you're just a judgmental object. And for what? Why are you going to waste your time being so judgemental? Is it because it gives you momentary satisfaction and reassurance that you're worth something in life, even though in reality, the past billion people that have walked our planets thought THEY were special too? Where did they end up? Burnt or 6 feet under. We're going to die one day, and maybe instead of instilling hatred maybe think positively for a change. Anyways, GOODNIGHT😳
(Went on an impromptu Wild West Dino-hunt🦖 in the outskirts of Colorado/Utah and had noooo service. Saw a wall/mountain side excavated, open, and preserved with 100 dinosaurs/1500 dinosaur bones. It’s so different when you see something like that up close. 🤓🦕
Hope this helps and hope you had an ok+ weekend! Whether allowing yourself to relax or dominating your current project/WIP.. doesn’t matter as long as it serves your soul. Doing that repeatedly will ensure types of success and reward beyond belief. 👻💯🖤)
Friendly Pre-Monday reminder: YOU ARE DOING BETTER THAN YOU THINK. (Read on for 6 tips for beating Imposter Syndrome. All six are in the comment section)...
Before we get into the tips themselves, really take a minute and think about all you've been able to accomplish this month, this season, this year. Too often we forget to celebrate how far we've come (me) and get stuck worrying about the future (me) and thinking we're not as far along as we should be (hi, me again).
I suffer from the disease called "Comparison-itis" and its close relative, “Imposter Syndrome”. I’ve been feeling so intimidated lately by technology overwhelm and financial planning that I've lost sight of a lot of the positive parts of my work.
A friend reminded me that about a year ago (when I was just starting to ramp up to doing copywriting full-time) I wrote a blog post called "How To Beat Imposter Syndrome". BOY OH BOY do I need to take my own advice!
The full post is on my blog (link in bio), but here are the 6 tips for beating Imposter syndrome that work for me:
Read the post for a description of how to use each tool and remember you are worthy, you are gifted, and the world deserves to hear what you have to say! 🌟

My first post and review! 👋
CITY OF GLASS (Third book in the Mortal Instruments series)
I have to admit when a friend of mine recommended this series, I avoided it for a while as I was convinced it would never be my jam! I enjoyed Cassandra Clare’s previous two books in this series but this one only kept my attention just enough to want to continue to the next book! Cassandra, in my opinion, goes OTT in describing every detail and I feel like this book could’ve been condensed down by a considerable amount due to this. The romance in this did make me roll my eyes several times, but I think that it’s a given when it comes to some YA novels. Hoping that the next book is more like City Of Ashes! .
Rating: 3.5/5 🌟

Sharing The Love By K:
“Within this thing called life, you may encounter heartaches, but don’t become bitter, know that you are bigger and better than that. Someone out there needs to hear this. You are a good person. So, never change your heart and be unkind because others don’t know how to love.” -Kansandra
