I want the pure experience of diving into the unknown and discovering everything for myself

Keywords: books , writing , book reviews

So, from now on there will be no more posts of book reviews. Now, I’ll still do a recap of what I’ve read (maybe monthly or quarterly instead of annually, I haven’t decided yet) and if a book greatly inspires me I may devote a post to it, but it’s likely it’ll be more of how it made me feel, what it made me think, and how it changed me.

I want that Happily Ever After

Keywords: love , romance , writing , believeing in love , escaping reality with romance , escapism through books , happily ever after , lightening up the dark world of 2020 , romance lover , romantic heroes and heroines , writing romance

I want to sigh happily when I get to the end, relieved that the characters whose journey I have followed through thick and thin, through dangers and adventures, through heartbreak and grief, finally reach safe harbour. With each other. As I write this, hubby is leaning over my shoulder, reading. Right now, his arms tighten round me, his breath warm on my cheek and he whispers. “Like us.” Yes. Like us. Am I lucky or am I lucky?

I want to be a “Whole Hearted” person

Keywords: forgiveness , Happiness , joy , mindfulness , shame

These are people who get real about things, they accept vulnerability, they admit their mistakes, they practice mindfulness, have the difficult conversations that need to happen and recognize that we, meaning each and everyone of us, are dealing with the same things. They recognize that we have shared human experiences with a variety of issues and that we are not alone in our madness… in fact… our madness is quite common.
