Claim your Power.... Mastin Kipp.

" You may not control all the events that happen to you , but you can decide not to be reduced by them. Try to be a rainbow in someone else's cloud. Do not complain. Make an effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking.. You might find a new solution" - Maya Angelou. Lets establish one thing. If you feel stuck inside the life you are living. YOU NEED THIS BOOK. Mastin Kipp's Claim Your Power is brilliant ,motivational and moving. I felt as if Mastin was watching from the outside in when I started reading this book. This book spoke to me in ways I cannot describe and let me tell you. I haven't even finished it, Imagine when I do.

Big Little Lies. . . Book + Series .

"OH CALAMITY...." - Liane Moriarty Let me begin with saying that if you haven't read the book or watch the series. This review is probably not for you because for one the HBO series for this book was very well received and a lot of people either watched it or read about the series enough to have a good understanding of what the book is about and how it ends. I will however keep the first part of this review spoiler free and will warn when the spoilers begin. Big Little Lies is a very well rounded book and although at times thrillers have you clinging to what is going to happen in the end because of the pending twist or or dramatic ending , this book didn't. It kept you entertained and hooked

A House Built of Crystal...

A House Built of Crystal A life behind walls that are transparent everyone thinks my behaviors aberrant I feel trapped inside these walls I shall escape them when night falls I grabbed a hammer to its foundation This house headed straight for damnation Oh why’d you build a house of Crystal It’s fall louder then that of a pistol. Everyone is watching the breakdown helpless I start to shutdown Emotions crashing leaving me senseless and then all at once breathless These actions cannot be undone and my thoughts I cannot shun Because suddenly I feel freedom And I know all of this was for a reason….. From here I will rebuild. -C

The Couple Next Door..

“Anne can feel the acid churning in her stomach and creeping up her throat; her head is swimming.” ― Shari Lapena, The Couple Next Door Overall Rating:4.5/5 This book was the first book I have picked up by the Author Shari Lapena and let me tell you it was thrilling,addictive and shocking. Honestly my brain is still catching up. The book is written in a third person narrative which I enjoyed because we get to understand much more of what lead all the characters to their breaking points. The story is about a couple Anne and Marco whom have a 6-month baby. Anne is battling with Postpartum Depression and her husband is having financial troubles although she is unaware of this. The action star

Saying no....

“My goal now is to remember every place I've been, only do things I love, and not say yes when I don't mean it”- Sandra Bullock. We may not realize that by saying yes so often and to almost everything we may be doing more harm then good.That is why this blog post is important and also something I struggle with. Saying yes to everything has always been a issue of mine. I say yes to things I don't want, say yes to things people sell me when I don't want them (mall vendors lol), I've said yes to relationships I don't want to be in and I've said yes to jobs I don't want. I have said yes to so many things in my 28 years of life without being 100% sure and this has gotten me in trouble. Why do we
